Get whatever fits best in your hand and you can shoot well. Nonetheless, I think that Glock is way better than Ruger. If you want to upgrade to something more ergonomic and high quality, then take a look at the Walther P99AS or an H&K P30. They are some of the most ergonomic and reliable pistols out there...plus, they are beautiful guns.

The SR9c comes with the 9 rd mag and 17 rd mag, but I feel more comfortable with the 9 rd mag in. It fits my hand like a glove especially with the pinky extension it comes with. I didn't care much for the 17 rd mag. Like the other guy was saying, it all depends how it feels in your hands.
I traded my Glock 22 on a SIG 226 before the SR40 had come out. Otherwise I would have gotten the 40 sooner.
I own a SR9c, SR40, LCP and plan on getting the SR9 after I get the LC9.
I like the looks of Rugers better then Glocks.....
But that's me.

Clocks are great pistols but they don't feel right in my hands. I have over 1400 flawless rounds through my SR9c and highly recommend it to you if it feels right for your hands.

MY SR9c has just under 1000 rounds through it with three failures, all three were bad ammo (cheap tula crap 9mm that failed to fire in at least two other known perfect guns). I was EDCing a P239. I picked up the SR9c and it was off to the races. The ergonomics are really excellent, it is accurate, and it is easy to shoot with the 10 round or 17 round magazines. I really like it. In fact, I'm considering a full size SR9 to compliment it. :D
I have been kicking around the idea of picking up an SR9c and a LCR .357. (or sp 101).
The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

I carry an SR9c every day. I've got close to 1400 rounds through it with one FTE in the first 300 rounds. I liked shooting the G19, but hated the way the G26 grip felt (the hump is in the wrong place, or something), and never felt comfortable shooting it. The grip on the SR9c is just long enough that I can get my pinky on without the extension. It shoots well and conceals well.
Been looking for a gun for the wife. Anyone have a lady friend who's a fan of the SR9c? It's one of my big considerations for her, among others. Naturally I intend to try to get her on the range with it before a purchase.

I'm busy deciding which high-cap 9mm will be my next pistol and it has come down to the SR9c, Glock 19 Gen4, and the M&P9c. I'm liking the price point of the SR9c as well as the ergonomics; however I want a Glock to round out the "everyman's collection" of a 1911, a Glock, and a revolver (my SP101), but I'm deadly accurate in rapid fire with my dad's M&P9 full size. Decisions, decisions...
The ruger is a fine gun, the glock looks like a brick..Shooting both guns, I like the ruger. The glock has its place. If you really want something buy a 1911, and the fan boys will come out of the woodwork.

I'm now at ~1400 rounds through my SR9c, and I picked up my SR9 yesterday. My friend and often times range buddy EDCs a G17, and has been considering getting a G19, but is now leaning toward an SR9c after shooting mine a bunch. The SR series are just really excellent firearms.
