    Well I bought a sp101 357 a few weeks back and I love the gun but my gun craving aint been satisfied yet. (I get this way from time to time) Now I am thinking of going and picking up a sr9c. From the reviews it seems there is as much bad as good to say about this gun. So I guess what I am asking is it a worthwhile buy? Are the problems still happening or has ruger fixed them. I have never owned a ruger till the sp101 and I must say if the quality of the autos is that of the revolvers I may never buy another brand of gun.

    I just recently picked up a SR9c and I love it. Only issue sights were off a touch but that's nothing. Good guns.... Also have a GP100, SR40c

    I bought an SR9C in the fall and now have about 1200 trouble free rounds through it and its pretty accurate.

    I have the SR40c and really, really like it. Actually have two of them. The sights on both are right on the money. This is an excellent pistol. I am sure that the SR9c is exactly the same; just in 9mm.

    I own one of each of the current offerings in the SR line. 9, 9c, 40, 40c and 45. all excellent with zero issues. gave three SR9's to family members as gifts, all of those three are keepers as well. the squeaky wheel gets the grease, those with issues talk and the vast majority of us just enjoy.

    I own and love my SR40C. I have shot my buddy's SR1911 & his SR556. I would own an SR9C in a heartbeat. And though I am not In the market fir a .45 if they come out with an SR45C I'd be first in line for that one.

    I have an SR9C and an SR45. Both over 1K+ rounds with no issues, Both accurate,

    The SR45 is a little larger than I'd anticipated and bigger grip with the double stack mag than an SR1911. Fun to shoot. I use it as my night table gun as it's too large to carry. Thinking of fitting it with a Crimson Trace Laser-Light combo. To me an ideal home defense gun.

    The SR9C on the other hand is close to perfect as a carry gun. I like the extended 17 round mag best for fit. Only issue I have with it is the spacer on the longer mag being loose. I solved this with a thread insert and set screw to hold it tight and have eliminated the "loose" feel from the spacer. Shoots great and quite accurate.

    The SR's are very easy to breakdown and reassemble making them that much easier to maintain.

    I'm a bit Ruger "prejudiced", but can't see any other line with superior features. Great service, shoot dependably right out of the box, and priced fairly......Just hard to beat.;)

    I bought an SR9C about a month ago, mostly because I liked the feel and the trigger pull. I also tried one at the range and it was a very nice shooter. I bought this for my wife to have on hand, so I've only fired about 100 rounds through it. So far, it shoots nice and no problems. I agree with the post that reported the sights were off (mine were quite high), but that was easily corrected. I have to wonder though why Ruger put adjustable sights on a CCW with a 3.5 inch barrel. I'll probably replace them with fixed night sights.

    I'm a rookie when it comes to handguns, and I only have two; a S&W .38 special air weight j-frame, and the SR40c. I love the Ruger! It shoots great, very little recoil, and east to conceal with the short mag.

    Had my SR1911 and my SR9C both for over two years now. The 9C is a fantastic shooter and you couldn't go wrong. You'll love it.

    I bought a SR9c, coupl'a years ago. Like new in the box, with a $50.00 holster. Swing'n deal, found out why. Trigger wouldn't reset, 'bout once per mag. 400 rounds later it was failing about every other round.

    Sent it to Ruger, it came back fixed, been great ever since. It will run any kind of ammo that I've found. I'm very happy with it.
