with the Glock having 25 yrs of "Glock Perfection" under its belt, imo it has the advantage. im not a Ruger basher by any means,
if i didnt have several 9mm pistols already id buy an SR9 based on the reliability of my other Rugers

Glocks are the Macs of the gun world

As such, I probably won't ever own one, and will just get a pc clone like a Ruger.

I dig the M&P as well as the Glocks. I like all kinds of guns.

I had the same choice over a year ago. The Glock didn't fit my hand, so I went with the SR9c. More than 1100 rounds later with no problems with the pistol at all.

Evidently Glock "Perfection" hasn't been extended to the Gen 4 models per everything I read on the forums.

sounds the major issue was in the dual captive recoil spring design not operating properly with standard pressure/lighter bullet loads. evidently Glock has got the springs right, and will send you a replacement rod/spring assembly if you contact them. from what ive been told by gen4 owners that has fixed the reliability issues.

Suggest that you visit a shop / range where you can rent - or at least handle both.

SR9c displaced the G19 as my favorite handgun.......but I'm not getting rid of the G19, it is an awesome handgun! The SR just feels a little better in the hand, points better for me, the trigger is excellent and frankly I like the option of a manual safety.

Try them both if you can - this is a "no lose" decision

My honest advice is if at all possible, try them both out.

The way a gun "feels" is subjective to the shooter. The feel in the hand. The feel of the trigger. The feel of the recoil impulse.

IMO, no they are not equal in most ways. Other than having a Browning inspired tilt barrel & a striker, they are different. I've fired both, and they feel worlds different.

Sr9vsG19 I say SR. I was looking at Glocks along with others when I got my SR40 and the SR just fit my hand better. Had never really looked at any plastic guns befor that. I had the glock in my hands for about 10 seconds, felt like I was holding a 2x4, he showed me a couple of other models of glocks and they all felt pretty much the same to me. Not saying the 19 wont fit your hand but it didnt do it for me. Like others said if you have a range you can rent them at do it befor you buy one.

I love my SR9. Having said that, the only gun that has never failed me (not even once) is my Glock. It's a Gen 3 and has a little under 10K rounds. I trust it with my life.
