Not much activity on this thread so I'll just ad a final note. I shot my new SR40C today for the first time and compared it to my MP40FS. It is a keeper, a great gun. It handles the recoil very nicely. The SR9c was the best-handling 9 mm I tried (in the "small" guns) and the SR40c is showing the same quality dynamics in .40 caliber. It is a CC gun that brings power for use in bad situations. I was alternating with the MP40FS and found it hard to tell any difference between the two guns in any aspect of handling. The trigger in the MP has the shorter throw but the Ruger's trigger is easy to get used to and very effective in combat shooting.
