LC9 or SR9c

give me some feedback. I know this has been debated but I wanted some first hand feedback. I was all set on the LC9 but while doing research ran across the SR9c.

I'm a pretty slim guy for pocket carry so will probably carry on the belt or IWB at about 8:30 (left handed) where I currently carry my sp101. I was going to try a high ride OWB for the LC9 but not sure how well that would work for the SR9c.

Thanks in advance -- DD

Every time a pretty girl walks by, I am reminded of how great my wife is as a total package. That's how I feel about my SR9c.

The two guns are in different classes. LC9 being a sub-compact pocket gun and the SR9c being a compact carry. I'm 5'8" 150lbs and the SR9c carries perfectly at 4oclock in a MTAC holster. Unless you have a need/want for pocket carry get the SR9c. It's incredibly accurate, reliable and easy to shoot. Very good recoil management on the SR9c.

+1.

I'd wager the SR9c is easier to shoot accurately, even at bad breath SD distances.

If I were choosing a gun to carry, I would opt for the one that I can shoot better while still being able to conceal.

I would go with the SR9C. it is compact enough for easy concealed carry, and still has the high capacity capability. It is light weight, but recoil is easy to control for fast and accurate rate of fire.

+1 for the SR9c. It's small enough to easily conceal yet large enough to shoot comfortably and doesn't have much recoil. Another benefit is that it can easily double as a home defense gun with the 17 round mag. After my Dad tried mine at the range he went out and bought one for himself.

Do you have any clubs in your area that rent guns? This way you could try them both before you buy.

Thanks for the replies so far everyone. No surprise; I'm leaning toward the sr9c now. Any feedback regarding holsters? I've looked at a couple holster threads and know everyone love crossbreed but it just didn't work for me.

I'm really leaning toward trying an OWB (Alabama Holster flapjack) in addition to my remora.

I've got both. If you're going to IWB, I'd recommend the SR9c.

If you're going to try to pocket carry, the LC9.

Thanks again for all the replies so far. Sorry I wasn't clear in my original post. I am a pretty thin guy and don't plan on pocket carry; my pockets aren't usually big enough.

Keep em coming -- DD

I went with the Kel Tec PF9 instead of the lc9. I love my rugers, I have the lcp, sr9,and p95. I love them all but Ruger got it wrong on the lc9. I don't like the extra safeties on the gun. Thats why I went with the Kel Tec pf9. Be sure you check it out before you buy.

I'm 5'11" and 190 and I can't conceal the SR9C although I love it dearly. I'll be looking at the LC9 and other smaller pistols for CC. (I have worn a man-purse which conceals the SR9C perfectly but people look and me funny)

Thanks for the feedback but that's weird. I'm 5'10'' 170 and have no problem concealing my sp101...

Bought the SR-9c before there was an LC9. Glad I didn't have to choose I may have chosen the LC9 in error and would not have been happy........ My SR-9c is my daily carry with its companion LCP in my front pocket. Both have CT Laserguard's attached. (CT LG's are a great addition to any carry gun & on the LCP they are a must IMHO) The SR-9c rides in the Ruger Mitch Rosen holster on my Left hip at 8 o'clock covered by my shirt. So comfortable that I almost forget that it's there.....For deeper consealment I also have a Highnoon Mr. Softy IWB holster that is also comfortable with the right pair of pants. (Don't really like IWB carry) but sometimes that is the only option. BTW just about any holster for the Glock 26 or SIG 239 can be made to work for the SR-9c if the particular holster you looking for isn't offered for the SR9/9c check one out for either of these pistols, you'll be suprised at the fit. BTW I'm 6'4" 330 lbs.
