Ruger SR9c 9mm Luger Compact Pistol
I went to the range and rented an S&W M&P 9c and a Ruger SR9c and shot them both equally. I could hardly tell any difference except the Ruger has a thumb safety in addition to the other safety features.
"Made in the USA". I cleaned and lubed the gun and went to the range. Shot 100 rounds of WWB and 100 rounds of cheap bulk ammo w/o a failure of any kind. Slim enough to carry IWB esp. with the 10 rd mag. Ruger.com has lots of videos on disassembling, cleaning, and reassembly. Highly recommend this little gun. Also the 17 rd mag. included will fit the standard SR9 and vice versa,and it has a pop up indicator that shows if there is a cartridge in the chamber. (you can see it plainly on top of the gun in the pic)

Great first gun
After reading lots of reviews, opted for the SR9c as a comfortable-firing 9mm that I could CC if I decided to go that route. I was impressed with the 10 and 17 mags, abundant safeties, and extras like the loader, lock and case. I was impressed with the overall quality and good looks. Before taking to the range, I field stripped and cleaned the gun, and it was a simple process. I'd never done a field strip before, and a couple youtube videos made it clear that it was nothing to worry about. Basically five parts and no special tools needed. At the range, I used three brands of ammo -- Winchester white box, American Eagle (Federal) and Remington UMC. 150 shots, no misfires, misfeeds or ejection problems. Recoil was very light. No discomfort in my hands are arms after, and the trigger breaks where you would expect it to. Accuracy at 7 yards was as good (for me) as on any handgun I've shot (Glock, Beretta, Sig, S&W) and the patterns were as tight as I could have hoped for. Just a few small beefs: The lock is nice to have, but the case won't hold the gun with the lock installed. Soon I'll get a safe, but it would be useful to be able to keep the secured gun in the case. Also, the edges of the slide are a little sharp -- might be an issue on a really long day of shooting. Other than really small deals, I'm very impressed with Ruger and can't want to take it to the range again.

Great overall gun. Smooth operation and had no issues putting 200+ rounds thru it. Love the feel of how it fits my hand.

Best compact 9mm in the market !
I bought this gun new and out of the box the accuracy and trigger were amazing.
I had at the time a Sig 232 in .380 and the Ruger SR9C is better due to being a 9mm gun and actually is easier to shoot with basically a very mild recoil.
Ruger means quality, durability and piece of mind, I've put close to 1000 rounds thru this little wonder and had NO failures of any kind. I'm so glad I decided to buy this gun, my evaluation is A BIG 5
