I bought this after getting a little nervous with my G26 because of the lack of a thumb safety. I didn't feel comfortable carrying it with one in the chamber. Maybe it is just me, but I feel much more comfortable with the SR9c, and it is a little slimmer making it easier to conceal. I also shoot it a bit better than the Glock. Out of the box, mine was a bit to the left, but an easy fix. The adjustable sights are a big plus. You can't beat Ruger for the money. Until I can afford a Kimber, it's Ruger for me! The G26 is for sale.....

Overall, a great little gun. Love the adjustable sights. Elevation is a simple indexed turn of a screw. Windage is a little trickier. After going through the motions of sighting in, I am grouping 1" at 25' and 2.5" at 50' consistently.
I have put over 2000 rounds threw this gun (shoot about 200 a week) and I have to say I haven't had a single issue with ammo feeds and I have used ever type of load with the exception of the 145 grain rounds. I've been shooting whatever is on sale and this gun could care less. Be sure to clean your gun before using it the first time. Misfires are a common complaint but seems to be due to the heavy grease applied at Ruger. Cleaning it first will prevent this problem. I have had a total of 3 misfires and they were all from the same box of ammo.
Reviews I read before my purchase said they loved the trigger on the SR9c but I am less of a fan. Feels a bit gritty to me, has a long draw which I don't mind. I would say it is a fair trigger, not the best. There is a $20 mod available that others say lightens the pull to 3.5 lbs and smooths out the pull.
Over all, very reliable, easy field strip, shoots any type of ammo, adjustable sights, adjustable grip, 10 round and 17 round mag in a compact that shoots 1" groups for half the money of a Glock.

I have carried a Glock 19 for over 15 years. I received a new Ruger SR9c as a gift. My first trip to the range I used two magazines with 7 rounds in each.
My target had TWO holes in it, firing from the 25' line. My first shot was in the 8 ring, the Remaining 13 rounds destroyed the center!! I am not an exceptional shooter, however, my new c.c. pistol is the Ruger SR9c. For the $400 price, an American company, and absolute Reliability, go Ruger, you will not be disappointed and it Could save your life.

I'm fairly new to shooting but the sr9c has got me hooked! Its a great value. I've read several negative reviews about lemons or issues with first runs. mine has not given me any trouble but i did follow online advice and took the striker out and cleaned it real well along w the rest of the gun before shooting it much. The grips are comfortable, the sights are really nice. nicer than a friends meprolights on his m&p. I really like the magazine extension but one extra magazine and a grip extension is fairly high. Really appreciate the ease of use and breakdown. ive fired close to 500 rounds in the past 2 months. its a really fun to shoot.
