I bought one of these guns years ago, in part because I wanted a 40S&W semi, and in part thinking it would make a good concealed carry gun due to its moderate size and weight. But once I found the LC9s the sr40c has been living a lonely life in the back of my safe. In fact I had not fired it in over two years or so until this week when I took it to the range. It fired flawlessly for the 200 rounds I put through it, reliably and accurately at the targets set out from 7 to 15 yards. Even with my old eyes the white dot sights were easy to use. And with the 13 round magazine this gun certainly has sufficient capacity for most needs. I truly had not thought about this gun in awhile and notice that it is virtually never mentioned on this forum. It seems that Ruger owners have not developed much respect for this gun, seeming to prefer Rugers in 9mm, 45acp and 380acp over this 40S&W gun. I must admit that after shooting it this week I started rummaging through my huge bin of holsters to consider making it at least an occasional carry gun. When I sometimes think about the 7+1 in my lc9s, the 13+1 in the sr40c starts to look even better.
