Jeff Quinn at Gunblast - Ruger downsizes the SR9. Ruger says it ships on January 15. It comes in brushed stainless or blackened alloy, and retails for $525.

Ruger SR9C 9mm compact pistol

The SR9c is one of the better concealed carry pistols on the market now. It is slim and light weight but not excessively so, having enough heft for good controllability under recoil. The pistol is easy to handle, very reliable, and accurate. It disassembles easily without tools for cleaning. The stainless/polymer construction is low-maintenance, and unlike most polymer pistols on the market, the SR9c has a thumb safety in addition to the trigger safety and firing pin safeties. The manual safety is good to have, and it sweeps downward naturally with the thumb. There is also a loaded chamber indicator that is easily seen and easy to feel. It rises above the slide when a cartridge is in the chamber. I know of no other pistol that has more safety features than this SR9c. The only improvement that I would like to see is the option of tritium night nights. Trouble usually comes after dark, and night sights are a good option to have.
