    Ruger SR40c

    Just got this in my email in case people were interested. Got rid of all my .40 S&W stuff as I dont like the round but I know many do. I LOVE my SR9c so id think the .40 if your into that caliber would be just as nice.

    We also got the email (have we bought too many Rugers ??) Anyways, after handling the SR9c, the 40 looks interesting! I have a Kahr PM40 and would really
    like to see/shoot the Ruger.

    I don't care much for the .40 round, but I love my SR9c so much I admit I want to try the SR40c.

    I'm not a big fan of the 40 S&W but this SR40c looks interesting. If it works as flawlessly and accurately as my SR9c it should be a great gun.

    Ruger seems to be on fire with new models lately. Nice to see that from an American manufacturer.

    Now, if they could only fix the LC9 by making it a true pocket gun - needs to be a wee bit smaller (like a PM9), and needs to lose the mag disconnect and thumb safety. C'mon Ruger - get it right!

    - The LCP was inexpensive, small and simple to use. For that reason, it sold like hotcakes. Common sense would dictate that Ruger simply make a carbon copy of the LCP in 9mm. Instead, we have the LC9.

    I have a Ruger SR9c and a SR40. I certainly like both pistols for different reasons, both have performed flawlessly since purchase. My sense is that the SR40c would be similar to the SR9c with the reported snappier recoil of the 40S&W round. If I weren't on the hunt for a Ruger SR1911, I would consider acquiring a SR40c. Ruger has been releasing quite a few different models of firearms recently. The SR9c and SR40 were home runs IMHO.

    YMMV,

    Another one here that is sure wanting to get a SR40c in my hands!!!
    I have the SR 40, 9c and LC9 (along with a SIG P239) but I do still want one!!!! The 9c is my favorite, so the 40c sure would be too.
    I LOVE that Ruger has the Safety's on their guns. I wished they (Ruger) made the LCP with a manual thumb safety too!

    I Just picked up my sr40c in stainless about a month ago and love the fit and finish of the gun. It is my favorite one out of my collection and is my carry weapon 24/7 365. I have no complaints about it and have had no malfunctions with the 250 rounds i have put through it. The gun has a realy comfortable recoil for a 40 and is controlable for its size. It is my first Ruger and wont be my last. I would recomend the sr40c to anyone and if you like the 9c you are bound to love this one. I have replaced my taurus pt 140 pro with the sr40c and look forward to trading the pt 140 for a lcp 380 for a backup.

    Ruger has nailed this one dead on the spot

    I shot my buddy's SR40 the same day I was shooting my Gen 3 Glock 23. The SR40 actually soaked up the recoil a little better than the 23. They were both shot with the same loads. I'm not a fan of a safety and I really don't have a need for another .40 S&W. But it is definitely a nice little shooter.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    Just bought the SR40C a couple weeks ago along with an S/A XD9 SC. Haven' had the time to get to the range yet, hoping to take my daughter this Saturday along with her new Taurus PT709 slim. Can't wait to get there!!

    I also have and carry the SR9C outstanding weapon and value, I see no reason the 40 would not be the same.

    I got my SR40C on the 5th of April and finally had a chance to go to the range. Well my first 9 shots went great! Very smooth trigger, and was right on. Swapped mags to the 15 rd mag fired 3 shots then on the 4th trigger pull nothing! Cleared the gun and reset the mag pulled the trigger same thing!! I checked the bullets the primers were not struck. I tried it again with the small 9 rd mag and the gun worked great,fired every time I pulled the trigger. After I finished I brought it back to where I bought the gun from and they are shipping it back to Ruger and they stated that my trigger is not resetting as well.
