Thanks for all your helpful answers. I am taking training right now for a CC permit in my state. I am very confident and a pretty dead shot with the SP101-I have a crimson trace laser on that gun. I must say that learning to shoot a semi auto pistol will take time-since that is not something I have much practice with. I will carry the SP101 until I can shoot the SR9c as fast-as accurately and knowing how to quickly clear a jam. The truth is the revolver is pretty simple-and I will not carry the SR9c until I can safely do so.
