Well, I could not stay out of my LGS and a new SR9C stainless as well as a new Gen3 Glock 19 followed me home. Both are guns that I have never owned before and both are guns I never really expected to buy but both were priced really well. After handling both and shooting both I have to say that the Ruger is nicer in every erea except ease of take-down. The SR9C fit and finish is better, the ergonomics of the mag release is better. The trigger on the Ruger is way better than the G19 and the sights on the Ruger are nicer. I've also had issues with the G19 ejecting hot brass to my face but the Ruger ejects more consistantly off to the right. Overall I think that Ruger has done a great job on the SR series of pistols. I'll probably keep both but the edge goes to my new SR9C.
