So my next gun will be a compact and I've narrowed it down to the SR9c and the G19. It would make sense to go with the SR9c since the ergonomics and controls are basically the same to my SR9, but I can't find anyone with anything but awesome things to say about the G19.

I've shot the Glock, but no one has an SR9c here in California for me to try out, so I can't compare the two. I'm assuming it's similar to my SR9, but with a better trigger.

Any opinions?

I'm not sure it's Cali approved yet. Awesome little thing though. I like it better than the full size. I think it shoots a tad better than both of my full sizes and part of that may be the trigger is a bit better. One of my full sizes does have 2500 rnds and a Ghost kit. Better but not great.

I think part of the difference is the striker spring. I have some fiocchi with hard primers that the SR9's eat up but the I get the occasional light strike with the compact. Shot everything else ok though.

I guess I should add that the G19 is a very nice pistol as well. If you like the SR9 and want to stay in that family, I'd do the SR9c. Nothing wrong with the GLOCK though but it does seem a bit fatter to me.

I have a LNIB G19 for sale in classifieds if you want it, now for the G19 itself its awesome, I handled almost all the popular models and the G19 just felt good. Only reason I'm selling the G19 is my wife wants a different gun she doesn't like the way the G19 feels in her hand and its a gun for both of us if I am not home.

So how does the wife like the SR9? I've held both and to me, the "feel" about the same, just a shorter grip (which won't matter if she has small hands) and lighter weight.

Isn't the SR9c a sub compact while the Glock 19 is a compact?

^ True.. I'm looking for something smaller than my SR9 and the G19 is definately that. I haven't been able to get my hands on the SR9c, is it really that much smaller than the G19 because that's about as small as I want to go.

With a sub compact your pinky doesn't fit on the grip while it would on a compact. Grip extensions aside...

Not sure what the correct size determining factors are but i doubt the SR9C would fall into a sub compact catagory-

The SR9c is close to the size of a Glock 26. Sonnytoo has some pics of them side by side posted. If you dig through his old posts you can probably find them.

I don't own a SR9 nor have I had my wife hold one, we ended up liking the Bersa Thunder 380, good size, big enough for me and perfect for her. It's like a Walther PPK/S without the price tag :) and yes a SR9c is like a glock 26 and the Glock 19 is just compact.

I agree, to me the SR9c is a compact and not SUB-COMPACT...

Don't get offended guys. :roll: To me if you can't fit your whole hand around the grip it's a sub. Something in the G19 size would be a compact.

wow. Really it's that small? Non of the reviews I've read/seen did a visual comparison with another gun so I just assumed that Ruger made a compact version of the SR9 and hadn't jumped straight down to a sub compact. Weird.

Well that settles this argument. I don't want a sub, so G19 it is I guess.
