Hey guys! I am working on getting my CC License and in the process of finding a nice gun to bring along with me to almost wherever I go! I am not new to shooting handguns, rifles, etc. But new to owning one on my own! This will be a gun for both my wife and I(newly weds) so I was looking into the 9mm range...I may be wrong and she may want a bigger caliber lol who knows! Ok, I am very dead on trying out the Ruger SR9c atm. I have been watching hickok45 vids and just reading a lot about them. But....I do need a back up plan if it turns out to not be the gun for US.. Which I am not sure if you guys have any knowledge on these but my back ups were the MP 9 shield, SA xdm sub compact 9 or 40 and if the wife wants to try it out..i was leaning towards the Glock 30(.45 acp), 30s or 26. Well...Sorry for the big text on my first run. I figured id run it by on the Ruger forum since my 1st choice in the SR9c...maybe even the SR40c too. Thanks for any help or info at all guys/gals! Have a awesome day!
