I've commented up thread a couple times on this one. So, quick update and a couple of thoughts about magazines.

My SR9c is still running perfectly. No issues whatsoever. It's my EDC, so I have come to trust it again. I probably have 4-5000 rounds through it by now. I like shooting it, usually about 100 rds/week.

I carry it 10+1, and carry the 17 rd magazine as spare. That gives me 28 rounds (Federal 124 gr HST), which seems like more than enough for any self-defense scenario. Probably about 9 times too much, according to statistics!

One minor caution with the 17 rd magazine. My hands are big, and after dropping the mag my palm extends beyond the grip a bit. During an emergency reload, I grabbed my 17 rd magazine, got it started and then drove it in hard to latch it. Unfortunately it bit my overhanging palm very hard in the process, actually cut it open a bit, hurt like he**, blood on the grip, all that sort of fun. So, just a suggestion if you have large hands, maybe play with how you hold the grip while seating a mag. It can bite.

The LC9s is a great carry gun. Very comfortable. I use a 9 rnd mag with one in chamber. Mine did go back to Ruger but they took really good care of me, fast service, fixed the issue no problems.

Great gun, but I would go with the M&P9c. You can get it with a thumb safety .

Great pistol. Had to send back when it was brand new 6 years ago but it has been great since.

Teased...welcome aboard the Ruger Forum! I was a Reserve with our Sheriff's Department back before I got married (in 2003)...we were required to carry Sig Sauer P-220's...same as the paid guys!

I, too, have a Glock 19...and a Glock 23...both Gen II versions...and a G-36 in .45 acp...Love all of them!

I love the way the SR9c feels in the grip...I want one but just haven't picked one up yet.

Lately, I've been drawn to the older P-Series Ruger pistols...working to acquire a few of those at this time...for now, the SR Series pistols are on hold!

I have a Ruger SR9C, my son has a Glock 26.

We went to the range together and compared guns. After one magazine thru the Glock I have no further interest in shooting it.

On the other hand I love shooting the Ruger and my son grabs it when I switch over to shooting my .22 pistols.

My EDC has been an SR9C since 2012; I've put about 5000 rounds through it since then and have not had a single issue. It fits my hand, feels good and it's amazingly accurate. On many occasions while shooting with friends, we would switch guns and invariably they would comment to the effect that they like the SR9C better than what they were shooting.

Another responder to this post made a comment about hurting their hand while aggressively inserting the 17 round mag. I had a similar issue, but stopped using the grip extension/sleeve. The extended mag still feels good in my hand and I hardly notice the sleeve is missing.

The saftey is the only difference in my opinion. I have an SR9c and a Glock 26 and prefer the Ruger.

I hane had mine now about 2 yrs. and find it a really fine gun to shoot and to carry. I have a G 19 but I usually grab the Ruger first when I go out the door for what ever reason. It is comfortable to carry under my shirt, etc. I just got back from the range and shot both and am satisfied with how each works so how about finding a range that rents them and try it for yourself. But over all I love how the gun feels in my hand and carries and functions. Hope you buy one , you won't be sorry.
