I got a SR9c last month. Agree with many other posters, it has an excellent trigger, and the mag features out of the box are very nice. Love it as a carry gun. Only downside so far is the chance of a snag particularly on the lefty side of the ambidextrous safety. Overall, no regrets. Did not look at M&P. Ruger was available and price was competitive.

In my area the M&P is only $50 more at $500 as opposed to $450.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness

One reason I prefer the SR9c is due to its Glock style safe action trigger. And given that it seems to be a bit more narrow in the slide and it's cheaper!
I can't wait to get one and the get myself a CrossBreed Appendix Carry for it!
Now, another question: is carrying two 17 round magazines overkill? I think that would be great! Man, I am so excited about getting this!

When I carry my CZ-75, I generally have a loaded mag in the gun, 2 loaded mags either on my belt or in my car, and a round in the chamber. And that doesn't count any BUG I may or may not have...

In short, no.

I LOVE the feel of the full-size M&P, and can't stand the M&P Compact. Amazed that a slightly short grip changes it for me so much.

The SR9c, on the other hand, is extremely comfortable for me.

Quality is there in both, but I prefer the lack of safeties on the M&P.

Hard choice if they both fit you well.

Ruger SR9c, DO IT!!!

For all the reasons already stated, take it from this ol' shooter, go Ruger. You won't be sorry.

They're both great guns. My buddy carries the Ruger, and I carry the Smith. I'm comfortable shooting either one. I chose the M&P because I knew i would eventually buy a Shield 9 for warmer weather carry. Now that I have both, I'm totally content with my carry guns.

M&P 9c-that grip is SOOO NICE.

You could run +p+'s in it (not recommended by the factory) and control it-probably.

Smith got those grips spot on for my hand.

Biggest advance in handgun grips I've seen in my lifetime so far.

Agreed. The compact M&P does have a totally different feel versus the full size. When I went shopping for my Glock 26, I found the M&P compact which to me felt way better in my hand. I took home the M&P compact.

However, I think of the two you're asking about, the SR9c would be an easier carry due to it's overall slimmer feel. I recently had a SR9 but sold it to fund my M&P full size since I wanted to build on the M&P platform. It was a great feeling pistol in the hand.
