    Which one do you shoot better?

    I'd start with that one.

    Sure, a pistol may feel better "in-hand" than another, but will that actually carry through to your shooting? It may, or it may not, and there's only one way to find out.

    Other than that, you've already cited your main dislikes for the Ruger - you can take out the magazine disconnect if you wanted to, quite easily, but as for the thumb safety, that's something that you'll have to choose whether or not you'll want to engage.

    Not everyone replying owns both, but I do. I am a huge fan of the Glock 26, but I have to admit, in my opinion at least, the Ruger SR9c wins in several categories.
    First, for whatever reason, I find the Ruger to be more accurate, or at least I shoot it more accurately than the Glock.
    The ruger is thinner and feels more comfortable in my hand.
    Both guns have been 100% reliable
    I find the Ruger trigger to be lighter than the Glock's trigger.
    For me, the Ruger has more "fun factor" when practicing than the Glock, causing me to want to shoot it more.

    Glock 26, no contest. There is no comparison.

    I vote for the SR9c. I have one and love it. Not knocking the glocks but they just don't fit my hand well.

    I didn't vote in the poll. I feel my vote would be too biased. I did enjoy reading previous replies however.
    Your mind is the best thing you have to rely on. Asking for others' opinions only means you have a weakness in some area. Stick with your gut feeling and you'll have less to worry about.

    Glock 26. Nothing bad to say about the Ruger. Honestly either one will do just fine.

    I have to agree that you should shoot both if you can and then come to your own conclusions. I recently purchased a Gen 4 Glock 26 and am very happy with it so far. Both are great guns though.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    hey spec, have you had any problems with or heard anything regarding the sr9c being prone to light primer strikes or the trigger failing to reset..seems some sr9c owners had this problem,atleast with first production runs?

    I'll agree 100%
    I have owned Glocks (but traded them in on SIG's and Ruger's)

    It's about feel... My SR9c is my most favored handgun!

    As for light primer strikes; Yes, some early one's had a shorter spring and has been fixed.

    SR9C

    Glock is sweet. So is the SR9C. I have about 300 rounds through my Ruger, and it never fails to put a smile on my face. Two things sold me on this gun right in the gunshop...#1 was the trigger which I tried next to both Glock and XDm. #2 was the very thin profile that beats most of the popular carry guns. Finally, for less that $400 and knowing the trigger was good, I took a chance and bought it (without researching the crap out of it like I usually do). Very happy with this gun. Very.

    Oh, not ONE SINGLE failure in 300 rounds, with a number of loads. The cool thing is that the brass all falls in a pile about the size of a large computer monitor...this indicates to me consistency in extraction at the very least. I shoot this thing very accurately. It isn't going to rival a good 1911, but let's remember that this is a compact with a combat type trigger. I do like the glocks, but Ruger has a winner here and the comparison is very fair and the question is a good one. Considering everything, I take the Ruger over the Glock, but if the price were the same, the choice would be tough.

    A couple weeks ago I was shooting steel with a friend's gen3 G19, thinking I might like to buy one. I've shot one before, and it's still a gun I'd like to have one day. That day, though, I was surprised how poorly I shot it. I emptied a mag with only one target hit. I switched to my SR9c and immediately knocked down five steel targets in a row. I think maybe the ruger carries more weight in the slide, helping accuracy with less than perfect trigger control.
