    ruger sr9c, black or dual tone

    hey guys so i am new to the forum and the ccw world. i am about to purchase my first handgun
    i am pretty set on the SR9c, but i dont know if i should do all black or the dual tone. obviously the all black has its advantages in some situations, but i really like the dual tone. how big of a deal do you guys thing a silver slide is for ccw. i plan on carrying IWB, with wither a psholster or a crossbreed

    thanks

    It's not going to rust if that's what you're worried about and if you're carrying IWB I wouldn't be too concerned with the "tactical advantages" of an all black gun. If you want the two tone make yourself happy its no big deal.

    My son likes guns blacked out I like them Two toned. My SR9c is two toned and I am very pleased with it. I carry mine in a cross breed.

    I think the stainless looks better, and I've read some complaints about the black chipping off. I've got the stainless and I carry it IWB every day. I sweat a LOT and have had had no problems at all with rust.

    I've been very happy with my 2-tone. Carry every day and it still looks brand new (what can I say, I'm a clean freak when it comes to my gun).

    I carry the all black model as my EDC. I just prefer the all black look. As LoadedPipes pointed out, not much tactical advantage when it is carried IWB. If you prefer the two tone go for it. Life is too short to carry an ugly gun. Ugly is in the eye of the carrier.

    Get what you prefer aesthetically. Not a hard question to answer because there will be practically no difference in relation to tactics and deployment of the pistol. I went for black on my SR9c because that's what was in stock.

    I have the two tone, but of course when and where I bought mine the all black was not available. While I like the two tone look, I've been thinking about having the slide blacked, and have a friend who can do it for me at little or no cost.

    If the Piece can be successfully concealed, it's finish is moot. Purchase the model that makes your heart skip. :)
