what is really nice is in 2012 we have so many good choices out there...glocks, xd/xdm, sigs, CZ, M&P etc. I can remember not so many years ago when we didnt have NEAR the choices. I am a glock fan but that SR9c is a great gun, I wouldn't question owning one, or using for home protection. I feel since Old man ruger died that they have came out with some really nice small guns...LCP, LCR, LC9, SR9, etc. I think the SR9 is a big step up from the clunky P series pistols.
Colts & Kimbers are what you show your friends. Glocks are what you show your enemies.
