    I absolutely love my PF-9... hundreds and hundreds of rounds downrange with only one FTE, which I chalk up to faulty ammo, since my P95 also had two FTEs with the same ammo, and my P95 never fails. The Kel-Tec is snappy, but extremely concealable and comfortable to carry.

    That said, Ruger makes great guns, too (my P95 and LCR have been flawless). I have not shot an SR9c, but everyone I know who has them, love them. Something to consider about changing mag sizes, etc, is that you stand to make a concealable gun less so if you have an extended mag hanging out of the bottom.

    Either would be a good choice, in my opinion. Do you have a range somewhere that you can try them out?

    I have never had any issues with my PF-9. For me its the perfect CCW.

    The only 9mm I currently own is a Ruger P95DC and it never fails me. The closest thing I've got to the SR9 would be the SR40 which when I shoot it feels like a 9mm most of the time to me recoil wise. Don't have but about 200-300 rounds through it but so far it appears to have the expected Ruger reliability and ruggedness. So out of your choices my vote would go with the SR9. I'm not a fan of S&W but if I were you I wouldn't consider trading in that 5 shot to get a new gun. When I'm feeling lazy and don't want to put on a holster and mag carrier my LCR fits just perfect in my pocket (with a holster of course). How are you carrying the S&W that the cylinder bothers you?

    I have a PF9 it's not a target gun it's for what it is intended, up close and personal.

    Has any one shot the LC9 how does it compare to PF9

    I handled an LC9 today at the LGS. while a different style from my PPS it compares favorably in the hand. If I decide to get another small 9mm I will definitely be looking closely at the Ruger LC9.
