Ruger SR9 first trip to the range.

I finally got to take my SR9 to the range for the first time. I was so pleased with its performance! Makes me feel better knowing that they get better with use from what I've read. Really enjoyed shooting it. I jave a P95 that I brought as well, unfortunately, I just can't count on it to fire every time. So I will be contacting Ruger for options on that but very happy with the SR9's performance. Feels so good in my hands.

Great news, IMO the SR series pistols are some of Ruger's best work!

Congratulations. Just be aware that one SR may cause you to want another. Such as adding a 9c. And of course there's all black vs two-tone. I would suggest you consider a set of Talongrips; really helps with the grip/feel.

Exactly what I did-except for the grips. Got a 9E a few months ago, love the balance and feel. Wanted a slightly smaller one so got the 9C 2-tone.
Guess my rationale isn't very unique.

What I find weird are the people who get the 9C and then get the extended mag pretty much extending it to a full size.

I have the 9c. My father has the SR9. I have fired both. The full size, even with the slightly longer barrel has virtually no accuracy advantage over the 9c IMO. The SR9c is a better choice because I have the ability to use both size magazines.

The 9c is way more concealable than the full size version. And with the longer mag, it becomes a fine range gun.

So, I think it is weird to not buy the more versatile firearm.

I hear you there. I didnt mean that you shouldnt purchase the compact size and didnt imply anything about accuracy. Just the point made about the extended mag. Im a bigger dude 6'2 about 220 so I am able to conceal my full size pretty well so no concerns there but totally valid point you made on the ease of concealing SR9C.

I am 6'1' and am down from 225 to 198 so I know exactly how easy it is to carry a SR9c IWB , having done so since 2010. That the extra 17 round mag makes a huge difference.

I'm very pleased with my SR9c, have fired more than 7200 rounds thru it.

Haven't carried it much for the past 3 months though because I wanted a few more rounds in the same size firearm. I purchased a SA XD 9mm Mod.2. Gives me 3 more rounds in the same size package as the short mag SR9c.

Ruger would do well to have a slightly longer 13 round mag for the SR9c.

Nice work on the drop in weight! Im trying to do the same. Its hard! Im sure when I get to your range looking at a compact may be a must.

I was going to buy a Glock 19 and then happened to test the SR9c. After that "test" I ended-up buying the Ruger.

Decades of Ruger revolvers and I decided to get a double stack center fire...my first.
Looked at many,happily ended up with the SR9 two months ago. Outstanding in all respects.
