Glad you got to try it out and like it.
It really is a neat gun.
I guess I'm one of those who used to look down their nose at Ruger because of the prices. If it cost less than SIGs, Smiths and Beretta and so forth, then they couldn't be as good. And by some measures it may not be as good as some other pistols, but so far, I see absolutely nothing wrong with this gun. Mine has functioned flawlessly. I've got other guns that feel better in the hand and that I might be more accurate with, but the SR9c has the right combination of weight, size and capacity for a carry gun, in my opinion. Living in Maryland I can't carry often, but when I do, it's the SR9c. That's what I bought it for.
