I just picked up my new SR9c today. What a beauty!
Now my wife said she is going to wrap it for Christmas. Wow, speak about ups and downs. Oh well 21 days to go.

Congrats on the new SR9c.

Hey, my kids were masters at unwrapping their gifts, playing with them, and then wrapping them back up. Give it a try.

Congrats. I've had mine for about 5 years now. It is one great compact 9mm. Everyone that shoots it, loves it. Oh yeah, Merry Christmas too. :)

I tried one in a LGS when they were having a 15% off sale and was very impressed with the trigger on it and bought it on site for a great price.

Since then I have acquired a few other handguns that have captured my time but the Ruger SR9C rides in the truck along with a back up mag full of HST 147g +P loads.

I think you will have a good time with yours.

Graz....Love mine, I shot quite well with it straight out of the box and is my main carry.

Congratulations on your SR9C! I'm sure you will enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine. Really fun to shoot.

I LOVE my 9c... got it in mid-September, 1200 rounds since new, and not one single issue, burp or hiccup. Could not be happier. Fired everything short of a howitzer (9s, .40s, .45s), and anything bigger than a slingshot before deciding on the Ruger.

Rented a variety of direct competitors and made back-to-back comparisons - although many were eliminated just by holding them (e.g. most Glocks are too fat in the grip, G26 is too short in the grip even with an extended base plate). Long trigger throws also put me off. I'm no marksman, so the slightly larger size of the SR9c, especially with the 17 round mag, helps out with a more stable platform.

Price was important, although not crucial, and the SR9c was perfect there, too. I paid $414 plus sales tax. Also bought an SR22 at the same time, "for the wife" (sure).

Thank you all for your responses! I'm getting an SR22 this week and will likely trade my current 9mm (Canik TP9SA) for the SR9C in the next week or so. I like the look and feel of every Ruger I've held and their reliability, price point and superior customer service have me hooked! I also like that they are made in the U.S. Either way, I'll post when I actually get my SR9C, but feel free to keep posting about your thoughts and experiences!

For all you SRc buyers...check out Talon grips...they offer an inexpensive wrap on grip in granular or rubberized finish. I added the rubber to my 40c and they really make a difference in the feel!

I have baseball glove size hands and need an added grip on nearly all my handguns.

Talon is fine, but out of Talon, Pachmayr, and Hogue, all of which I have tried before, Pachmayr seems better for fit and comfort in my hand.

That it is also almost half the price of the others is a big bonus too considering how many I use.
