Thread: Ruger SR9c
5/13/2013 11:06am, #1
Anyway, in another thread, I mentioned I MADE my wife go shoot. After a little crying and much foot stamping my wife still hates guns *snicker*. She then went on to tell me how much she dislikes the trigger pull and grip on a Sig. The Glock 17 with the trigger safety made it easier too shoot. She hit 6 out of 10 round center mass after the range officer taught her the proper stance. Then described her noob feelings about shooting downrange. All the while I'm giggling, like a little school girl, listening to someone that is trying HARD to convince themselves they dislike guns "BUT....."
So, I started looking at slimmer grips and stumbled across the SR9c. I love Ruger. Yes, I know the big idiot said some stupid crap ala "civilians should not have high cap weapons." Yeah, whatever. They are selling 17 round clips and I enjoy my .45 ACP. If you guys have some advice for a nice gun for small to medium size hands it would be greatly appreciated.

And I appear!
SR9, like all Ruger's, is well-built and tough. Ruger makes a lot of very utilitarian weapons.
Ruger triggers tend to be stiff, with a lot of take-up. it takes some getting used to. This will not have a dainty grip, though.
9mm weapons for people with small hands?
Kahr has a whole line of them as well.
Check my reviews as well. i think there are a few of them in there..And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

I'll look through your reviews again thanks. I agree with you on the trigger pull. For some reason, I'm weird and prefer that when I shoot. Then again, the gun would be for my wife and her comfort is my priority. If she enjoys shooting, it'll become a family affair at that point.

Bill Ruger passed away, the company started making hi-caps again. Boycoting them now only means missing out on fantastic new offerings like their scout carbine and the toughest, best valued revolvers on the market.
While not a CCW weapon by any stretch (or even a moder defensive arm), I'd love a Bisley Black Hawk in .357 myself.
If their new ploymer framed offerings are as reliable as their P-Series autos were, I think they'd be worth the price tag for sure!

The other "nice" 9mm I have some experience with is the Glock 26. Cute gun, kicks a bit more than I thought it would. A different buddy bought it for his fiance, but I've heard it's a maintenance nightmare, and personally I like to have all my fingers around the grip.

I have always like the Walther P99 ergonomics.
Here is a thread that maybe helpful to you
the Kahr K9 seems to keep coming up but I haven't handled one myself.

No, not about concealment at all. Just looking at different guns that will feel comfortable in her hands. Also, one that I might like to shoot as well. I don't like Glocks. It is a really good gun, but just never feels completely comfortable in my hands. If a Glock is what she continues to like, I'll just need to get used to one.

Opps I forgot to mention that my Wife whose hands are so small she complains about the XBox controllers can handle the Walther P99 fine.
