I really want a SR9c to go with the 9E I own so I am looking into the LGS to get one at a fair price. Nothing but good things to say about the Ruger 9E. I agree-> Many of us would love a Ruger compact modular steel system based on a Ruger American. We agree with everyone when we say "it would be nice for Ruger to step up to the plate". All the SR's have been good to our family over the years in both 9mm and 45 Auto. Hopefully we all get a quality Ruger alternative here in the near future. Not sure what to expect anymore with the way the market is and all the other offers out there from other manufacturers.

I thought the CA version can be shipped to all states( except MA) which means it is effectively still available.

If I remember correctly there was no material difference between the original LC380 and the CA version. CA version had gone thru the registration
process.

Additionally, the CA version could be upgraded to a 9mm version with a Ruger kit.

Sorry to see the SR series go.

My SR9 is a big favorite, especially since I got a PC carbine and the mags are interchangeable.

Bring back the P series. My P90 is my favorite 45 ACP.

What I am hoping for is a new compact based on the Ruger American. Tough, all steel chassis etc like the American, but less weight. A modular design. A really tough gun, no aluminum.
Give us something to be proud of Ruger. A gun made to last a lifetime. Which I am sure my SR9C will outlive me.

Build it Tough Ruger. Step up to the Plate.
I hear you brother, and I hate to say it, but my bet is Ruger trying to re-invent the wheel with just more plastic.

I'm surprised it lasted so long after the RAP line was introduced. No room for two redundant lines.

Ruger has brought a lot of new product to market in recent times. Iím not surprised to see some of the older guns phased out. In the meantime, SR9/40 owners know what a great pistol they have. I may be looking for another good used one before they become scarce.

I really donít see them as being redundant. The SR9 was like a sports car, while the RAP is more like a pickup truck. The amazing part is the RAP 9 is bigger than the Glock 21 (45ACP) in every dimension other than length. The Glock 21 is about a half inch longer, while the RAP 9mm is wider and taller.

I guess the Security 9 is replacing the SR9. So Ruger went from a hammer fired P series to a striker fired SR series and now went back to a hammer fired Security series. I hope this leads to an updated version of the P series. If not I hope they'll at least come out with a subcompact Security series in both 9mm and 45 acp.

Very sad to see the SR series go. I picked up an SR9c and SR9 since prices were super low before Christmas. Glad I did! I shot an American once and it ripped up the skin on the second knuckle below my thumb. Very uncomfortable and very unpleasant. CZ also killed off a whole bunch of pistols and rifles this year too. I guess everyone is slimming down their lineups.

This has been my guess since the rumors of the SR discontinuation started.
Ruger has gone a clear direction with their designs lately - the Security 9 and their LCPII have a distinguished look, and not too far off from the American line.
The LC9 by comparison has a dated look. I believe I saw a patent on a Security 9 compact and a Security 45. A smaller version of this series would be the natural replacement for the LCs.

Well this news BITES...I love my SR40, first handgun I ever bought and now with 9000-10000 rds through it over the years it was my "yellowbook" of all my handguns, The One That Got Used! I sent it in recently with a small "chunk" broke off the front of the slide where the barrel was...I got it out to take it to the range after quite awhile of it being set aside as I shot/carried other newer pieces and noticed a fracture on the front of the slide as I was going to give it a once over before heading out with it. Good thing I did as it was probably not going to survive another outing.
They replaced the slide as well as other pieces (I'd have toi dig out the paperwork for a full report) at no charge so it's probably good to go for awhile now as it's one of many now instead of being the one and only.

I really like my 9E. Hated when the stopped making that, but I hated it when they stopped making the P series pistols too.
