    Congrats, they are a perfect pistol for home defense, range shooting and CC, except in really warm weather. When you clean it be sure to remove the striker and clean the striker channel as they sometimes have grease or metal shavings there that can result in light primer strikes. They are accurate, reliable and pleasant to shoot, you have made a good choice.

    I've got an SR9c and after Ruger came out with the SR45, I'm at odds on which to get. I've already informed the banker (read "wife") that there are 2 in the lineup, and eventually, both will be at bat. Right now, I'd probably pay #$@# attempting to buy either, much less finding ammo for them. In OK right now, it's almost impossible to find anything besides shotgun rounds.

    Keep 'em firing!

    I'm actually sort of interested in this pistol. I'm invested in 10mm, but have 40 barrels for most of them. But I'd prefer a more reliable carry pistol with a real safety (my glock scares me to death, just waiting for the day my shirt gets caught on the trigger while holstering it).

    I think you will really like it. I have the SR9c(i dont like the .40 round) and its a great gun the 40 should be just as good!

    Now...if they ever come out with a SR45C I will get one!

    Just got my SR40c last Wednesday. Already love it! It does have a little more push than my SR9c. The salesperson told me that the 40 is a love/hate caliber. Insisted that I fire their SR40 (full size rental) before I bought the SR40c. 5 rounds later and I'm walking out the door with my new SR40c. I am finding that places that are out of 9mm will have 40 in stock.

    Just go raid your local friendly DHS stash. They have a few extra hundred million rounds or so I'm sure they're willing to let you have.

    Put 125 rounds through my new Sr40C yesterday, the gun performed awesome. Shooting the same hole 2 or 3 times in a row right out of box. No light strikes no misdeeds. Gun felt good in my hand. The Winchester white box shot best. Fell in love with this gun. Money well spent.

    Glad to see you like it. I'm looking at that one, the SR9c, and the LRC 38 special.
