I was going to keep the Glock 23 and just send it out for a grip job to be done. BUT today while out looking the local shop actually had the Ruger SR9c in stock..got lucky too they had just gotten them in a hour B4 I got there. love it so far improvenemts from Glock to ME are. 1. Better grip 2. A bit thinner 3. Ambi mag release 4. Ambi safety 5. Fully adjustable sights 6. Nice size 7. finger grip extender comes FREE the cool parts Love the 17 round magazine adapter/extension now that ive cleaned it up I just need to get it to the range. Oh and the cost difference between the new SR9c and getting the glocks grip job was less than id have spent on the grip job..I ended up owing them $75($50 actually but I got some ammo with the gun) after all was said and done. which was less than a grip job for the 23 would have cost.. I think I did well!
