I have the SR9C and love it. My sights were a little off to the right, but an easy fix. Very accurate and fits comfortably in my hand. Make sure to take the gun fully apart and clean it, lots of folks were finding a grease build up on the firing pins causing light hammer hits, but they only got the light hammer hits because they didn't clean the gun first. Ruger lubes them up big time for storage purposes. So strip them down and clean them up, plus it is a great way for you and your wife to learn all aspects of your gun and how to disassemble and reassemble.

The 40C is a fantastic sport pistol! Feels great in your hand and a lot of fun to shoot.

It is true about the firing pin issues on the SR9C, it happened to me more than once. Would be terrible if it happened when I was trying to defend myself or my family. It's not just from the factory, the composite firing pins need regular cleaning.

For the Apocalypse, however, keep a couple Glocks around.

I have not had one miss fire on my SR9C, but then I clean my guns and inspect them. The problems with the SR9C were the fault of the gun owners themselves not the gun. I have put well over a thousand rounds through my 9 in both slow rates of firing speed and high rates of firing speed without an issues.

I disagree .. My SR9C and even my LC9 had less than 100 rounds through them before they started misfiring.

If I used high quality ammo it didn't happen as often, but practice rounds were sure to do it.

I have Glocks that I'm ashamed to admit probably have thousands of junk rounds through them and have never been cleaned.

The Ruger SRs are great sport guns but not reliable enough for the apocalypse.

I'm not a Glock fanboy by any means, my favorite pistols are my 1911s.
