I bought my oldest daughter (she is 37) her first handgun for Christmas. I told her she could have whatever she desired. At first she wanted my 4" XDm 9mm, but then she went shooting with a friend and discovered she liked the SR9c better. So that's what I bought her. I went shooting with her over Christmas and shot my XDm and her SR9c. I came away with the feeling that while it is an accurate shooter, it felt like a cheaper gun. I was looking at the time for another 9mm gun and thought I would get the SR9c, however, after shooting it, I decided it was not for me. I bought instead a Glock 26 Gen 4. It fits my hand well, however, I have not shot it yet. I hope to get to the range the first of next week.
