    The SR9c is on my short list of guns to buy. It's amazing how well it fits my hand. I have a buddy who's got one and he raves about how well it shoots.

    The SR9c has a very nice, Glock-style trigger, is accurate and pleasant to shoot, fits the hand like a glove, and has a slim grip and slide. I carry mine every day and have over 2000 rounds through it with no issues. I keep trying to find a reason to buy another carry gun, but the SR9c just fills the bill.

    I have never purchased or chosen a gun based on the " way it feels", or "ergos". My choice is based first and foremost on function , reliability, and ease of maintenance. The fact that the Kahr is owned and made by a reiigous cult leaders son, ( the Moonies), keeps me from even considering a Kahr.
    I have never really understood the need to have that perfect fitting firearm , if you can shoot well, they should all be easy enough to serve well, although I do see how different operating features may make a difference in selection.
    I guess I want my clothes, bed and chair to " feel" comfortable, and my gun to "give" me comfort.
    Good luck with your choice.

    Good point. No I don't really need an excuse. But in this case, I feel the need to have a gun that fits my hand geometry better.

    Not to start a war, but I have been in guns a long time, and I remember when the Glocks hit the scene and all the 1911 guys came out of the woodwork to tell everyone why they were a bad idea and the 1911 was the only choice an edjamacated guy should make. They down-played the 1911 issues and waxed most eloquent about its virtues. The Glock fans told them they were closed minded dinosaurs - now I see the Glock folks doing the same thing, I find it funny.

    Hmmm, I've never bought a gun based on 'feel' alone, but it has had a role in the selection process. E.g., and I say this at the risk of being accused of being a 'Glock fan doing the same thing', I have an M&P and do not carry it because I do not like the grip - at all. I guess it was designed for somebody else's hand - not mine.

    OTOH, I love the Glock grip. And no, I'm not a Glockaholic or anything of the sort, in fact, I'm carrying a Sig P250 fs right now.

    But I do whole-heartedly agree with the G-man - comfort is a luxury, kinda the 'icing on the cake' if you will.

    The same for me, although other than you and I, I doubt there's many that are concerned about that at all.

    I do recall putting a Sig P229 in my hand for the first time - it was like it had been molded to my hand. But, then behind that 'feel' was the more important things - like it's a Sig.

    I would have to agree, it's how you shoot and not how it feels that is by far the most important. I think where I disagree is that is a bit of an old school mentality, why can't a firearm do both? I assure you, then can.......

    I'm a fan of both Glock and Ruger. My only concern switching from a Glock to a Ruger SR-series pistol would be the fact that they have thumb safeties. None of my guns do, so my muscle memory just isn't there. If you're used to thumb safeties, then go for it. Personally, I wish the Ruger LC9 and SR pistols were available without the darn thumb safety.

    As far as Kahr and the whole Moonie thing goes...if someone would come out with a pistol that competes with the PM9/CM9 on price and features (relative light weight, relative small size, DAO trigger, no thumb safety, no mag disconnect, locks open when empty, real sights, can take +P ammo) I'd be all over it.

    I have some well documented concerns with the Kahr manual of arms, but nothing else out there competes with the PM9/CM9 at this time. The new Sig P290 comes close, but it is still too new, too heavy, and I've read a review on the Tactical Wire that blasted the trigger as being way too heavy (the pull was so heavy the scale the reviewer used couldn't register the pull weight - over 12.5 lbs before the trigger hook bent). Yikes.

    So, for now, I have to give the devil (or the Moonies) his due.

    You are going to love the SR9c. I have one and have shot all different brands of ammo and have never had a miss fire.

    I have a couple handguns that feel great in my hands, but I don't shoot them that well. I don't carry those. I have a couple that I can shoot pretty good, but they are awkward for me (from either a grip feel, balance, sight picture, trigger reach/reset. etc.). Then, I have several that feel great in my hands in all ways, the sight picture sets up to my preferred method of sighting, and I can circumcise a gnat from 35+ yards with. Now, I CAN shoot anything. I learned to adapt and overcome to be able to shoot just about any firearm (given a chance to learn the particulars of sight picture, POA, POI, etc.) but my PREFERENCE is to carry a gun that feels like a natural extension of my hand and eye. That way, if the stuff hits the rotating blades there's no thinking about the particulars...its just instinct.

    I think of it kind of like golf. I CAN play golf with just about any set of clubs...but I prefer to play with a set that is designed to match my height and swing characteristics and I am very comfortable and familiar with. Then, I can concentrate on visualizing the shot and not swing mechanics. If you're thinking about mechanics during the swing, you've already lost.

    10thmtn: Just like the original, full-sized SR9, the SR9c is loaded with modern safety features like a 1911-style ambidextrous manual safety, internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker, trigger safety.

    Out of the 5 people I know personally, I am the only one who uses the safety. Just a FYI

    I hear ya, but I'm of the opinion that if your pistol has a thumb safety, you need to practice sweeping it from "safe" to "fire" even if you leave it set to "fire," just in case it gets bumped to "safe," however unlikely that might be. That's an adjustment to my training regimen that I'm not willing to make, so long as there are pistols without thumb safeties available.

    JMHO.
