New shooter. tried a sampling of guns with friend at indoor range 38 revolver, Ruger SR9C and his Ruger SR40C. Immediately was in awe of how well I did for the first time with his SR40C. Purchased one for my self at gunshow got a VERY FAIR price with a 15+1 magazine and the 10+1 magazine. So far I have fired about 500 rounds with practice ammo, had one STOVE PIPE that i quickly ejected and went on shooting. when i do get my CHL I will carry with the compact magazine holding the extended one in reserve. I have the utmost confidence that this gun is the perfect match for me as a concealed carry.
