I should have been a little more clear about that statement- He said "down the road" not meaning 2 or 3 months, but several years. But, at the same time, I'm the type that when I get a firearm, I keep it forever, so anything I purchase, that will become an issue at some point. My dad has a couple rifles that are pretty gun cabinet ornaments because you cant get parts for them anymore. Either way, it worked out well, as I ended up purchasing the RAP9c, and I love it. Still may pick up an SR9c while they are still available though, haven't completely made up my mind yet.

Honestly, if you live long enough you're not going to find parts for half the stuff you own unless it was made in the last 5 years. In fact you will find the mate to some of your earlier purchases in a museum and that's a fact.

I remember that when the P series was dropped I was disappointed. my P-90 was and still is one of the most accurate pistols I have.
Now it will be the same with the SR9C. It has proved to be very accurate and easy to carry.
I never really jumped onto the LC9 and haven't bothered to try and pick up any of the new EC9 or Security 9.
They always talk about changing designs to keep up with demand and I guess that's a thing but it sure is odd how many have fallen back on the old JMB design and come out with "new" 1911's.
Rugers entry into the 1911 game has been a success so I am sure it will stay around awhile but I personally think the polymer gun market is saturated. I know, I know but it is my opinion

Parts will be around for a very long time. But seriously, how many parts will actually wear down that you cannot stock up on now? You are going to really have to lay down a whole lot of ammo.
Why are they discontinuing the SR9? My feeling is that the gun is too expensive to build. Why put all that steel and quality in a gun that the general Public does not know about or even understand. Give them aluminum and forget the quality. Give them a slicked up Grip that looks appealing. Most of the general public are not going to be putting much ammo down range anyway.
How many of the new age buying public actually go to a gun counter to compare guns and ask the Clerk to break them down to compare. If it looks cool on the outside and the gun rags rave about it, then all is good.
Want a good Compact, look at all the New guns and then look at the Ruger SR9. I mean really look at it. Break it down in front of a clerk and ask him to tell you why this aluminum chassis gun, with no steel protection on the rails, and other areas is actually a better gun. Go ahead, do it.

I agree whole heartedly. I had both my EC9 and my SR9c at the range today. When I got back home I cleaned them both and the difference in build quality is so obvious. I have not seen the Security 9 but from the pictures I've seen it appears to be built similar to the EC9. If that's the case it will be a bunch cheaper to build, will have a lower price and will be easier to sell. That in turn will bring higher profits which of course is the goal. Anyway, both the SR9c and the EC9 ran great but the SR is so much easier to shoot.

Got my SR9c and 40c a few years ago and have been very happy with them. They go well with my other discontinued model, a P89. Love my Rugers!!!!

Iím proud to own my SR9 & SR9c. I was skeptical of the new Security 9 when they first came out. When the PCC9 carbine came out, the Security 9 had been out for awhile. Went to my lgs looking to buy the carbine only to find out they were out of them. Out of curiosity I handled a Security 9 & was surprised how well it felt, especially the trigger pull. At the time I was hell bent on a 9mm rifle & passed on the Security 9. Fast forward about 8 months later; love my PCC9 carbine by the way, the Security 9 was on sale for $250. It was an impulse buy driven by sale price but Iím glad I made the purchase! The Security 9 isnít going to replace my SRís but it has changed my mind on the new direction Ruger is going. I handled a RAP 9mm & didnít fall in love like I did with my SRís. The Security 9 has the same aesthetics as a RAP but feels a bit more compact to me, shoots great! I am anxious to see whatís next for Ruger down the road, maybe an answer to the Sig P365 perhaps?

Here's a pic of my SR40 slide I'd mentioned in an earlier post.
I've run between 9000-10000 rds through ole Darth Ruger over the years and don't anticipate running that many through it again. It was my first and only handgun for quite a few years but now I own multiple different makes and models.
It's still my favorite handgun of them all..Ruger fixed everything up for me and I hope that if we have any issues in the future they'll be able to take care of it.

Is $300.00 a good price?

I got my CWP with a SR9C. Instructor was amazed that I could center hit 9 out of 10 clay pigeons at 15 yards rapid fire. That gun flat out shot. And shot good. Traded it for a S&W Model 60 no dash first run. Although I love my S&W , I was 10x more accurate with my SR9C. Miss that gun, and have always thought of replacing it. It shot every handload I shot thru it , even my cast Lee bullets at start loads of BullsEye shot amazing.
