Very well. I am 63 retired and live in Gulf Coast Texas. As my first firearm i wanted something easily concealable, but bigger than a pocket carry. I opted for the SR40C and use for both home (15+1) and carry (9+1). I wear my 3Speed HolsterThanks for posting this, kde71450. I have been looking for a holster that can be worn with basketball style, elastic waist band sport shorts. You find the 3 Speed works well like this, yes?
That might have some truth to it but 40's are much easier to find and some places are not that much more in bulk. I agree to shoot them both and if you like the 40 better don't talk yourself down to a 9Since there is so little difference in ballistic performance between 9 and 40, why not carry the one that's cheaper to shoot and holds more rounds? Nine wins, hands down in that battle.
That being said, rent them both and carry the one you shoot best.
