    SR9 between those 2, but there are better pistols in that price range IMHO (XD Defender, Canik, SAR, TriStar). I’d like the SR9 more without the thumb safety and mag disconnect. If those don’t bother you go for it

    SD9VE, consider the cost of ownership the mags are cheaper for OEM Smith mags around the net by several internet sources by about 15 bucks. The rugers while more refined have mags in the 40 dollar range that's alot more money your going to spend on it in the long run.

    Ruger is known for outstanding customer service- I have experienced it several times. Like when they sent me parts for my MK1 22 standard that was discontinued in 1983 (ish?). In 2018. Also because the SR9 is a much better gun than those cheap S&W's.

    I don't doubt that, Ruger has an excellent customer service reputation. However, we've had several guys on the forum that have had trouble with their P85/P89/P90/P97/P345 who've run into a brick wall from Ruger because those guns are no longer in production and they no longer support them.

    Ruger, and I'd go for the compact one. From everything I hear.

    I've handled the Smith (friend whom I've taught to shoot handguns, and got him to buy one got one) and I'm not impressed. A solid, reliable, durable firearm; but not impressive. He got it because he liked the grip size/shape.

    But I'd go Ruger.

    That’s the one I’d opt for. The sr9c is arguably one of rugers best semi auto pistols in my opinion. Rural king has them for $279 as well, I’m tempted to get an all black one. Comes with a 10 round and 17 round mag with grip extension as well so it essentially can become a full size pistol as well (minus the barrel length of course). Versatile and a sweet shooter.

    SR9, though mine is a 9E I got for a bit less than that.

    I really like the Ruger sr series, I have several hundred rounds through my sr 40 without a single glitch, and I just bought the sr45. My sr45 is my new favorite, it's incredibly accurate and super fun to shoot. I'm probably going to buy the sr9c next.

    When I want to make a purchase of anything the best people to ask are those that use the products.
