I have a EC9s and it is a great gun for the money. But, I am considering a G3 for the following reasons. Easier disassembly, accessory rail, 2 mags, drift adjustable rear sight with 3 dots, bigger grip and higher mag capacity. I think Taurus has increased their reliability and reputation in the last few years.
1 more vote for the G3.

I realy like my G3c, it came with 3 mags. It has been flawless and Taurus has got beter in the last few years. They even sell a few parts now.

Some shooters don't like the G2/G3 due to the trigger action. The trigger break is vague and some don't like that. Just a different technique. Mine is just what I want in a SD pistol. Simply keep the sights aligned and haul back on the trigger. Reset and repeat. Guys, it's NOT a target gun.
As for 'CS', mine works first time/every time. No 'CS' required.

I had a G2c and the trigger on the G3c is much better in my opinion. I liked it so much in the G3c that I sold the G2c and bought a second G3c as backup or spare.

I owned a LC9s and a C2C. From a quality and standpoint the Ruger won hands down. I never owned a Glock so I cannot comment on that. The one feature of the EC9s that is different from the LC9s is that the EC has tiny sights milled into the slide. While that can be an advantage in pocket carry it can be a disadvantage if you are beyond a point and shoot situation. With the introduction of the Max 9 there are meant LC9s pistols available used and I see a good number of new ones at reduced prices. Personally I now carry a Security 9 Compact with either 10 0r round magazines. With a ten round it is only slightly larger than the EC9s, but it has a windage adjustable rear sight plus greater capacity. Mine has been ultra reliable and a good shooter.
