Going to try out a new addition tomorrow. Finally broke down and bought a Ruger SR9c. I'll write a report when I get through.

I really like the SR9c. I own a Kel-Tec PF9, which is a competitor of the SR9c.

give us a full report! They look to be well made and very concealable for a 9mm.
As I recall the internals were very "Glockinspired" which is a time tested design.

Also, I put the grip extension on all my PF9 magazine and it makes the gun a lot easier to hold on to.

Congratulations!

Just stealing a little time from the company. We went to Boggyhead and burned a lot of powder yesterday morning. The SR9c will become my carry weapon as soon as the holster from Crossbreed arrives. I cleaned it before taking it out. I spent about 45 minutes working the slide, dryfiring, drawing and firing from a Bladetech holster for my FNP9 that works wells for an OWB holster to get use to the smaller safety. I was very pleased with the pointability using both the 10 round mag with hook mag base and the 27 round mag with the adapter. I have large hands and the short mag was comfortable. The long mag made it fit the hand like a well made tool.
At Boggyhead I shot more than 200 rounds of 115gr hardball 50 rounds of 95 gr soft tip federals. I had no FTF or jams of any kind. It shoots to point of aim out the box for myself and my brother in law. First five draw and shoot at 7 yrds gave 2 in the 10 ring and 3 within the 8 inch target. The trigger is not a match trigger but is very adequate for a carry gun. It also continued to improve as I used the firearm. The recoil is very manageable and easily allows quick accurate follow-up shots
My brother in law , who carries a Kimber compact which I have fired and coveted, and spent many years relying on a gun for life and limb,was impressed. He especially liked the ability to use the 17 rd for carry or reload.
I will still carry my .380 Bersa on occasion but when it is at all possible, I will have the SR9c with me.
We also fired.223, 7.62x25, 7.62x54r, 9mm largo, .243. It was a great morning and we hope to do it again before he has to go back to D.C.

We got in several hours Sunday morning at Boggy head. I put another 150 rounds through the Ruger without a single hiccup. I'm very happy with this firearm and would recommend it to anyone for a carry weapon. It will take the place of my Bersa.
Tim managed to sight in his .243. He has a CZ52 that would not hit the wall if you were inside the barn.After firing five different varieties of ammo through his CZ and my CZ we came to the conclusion that the 1953 bulgarian ammo is crap no matter which gun you use. We decided he needed a new barrel and new ammo.
