I have both the Ruger SR9C and the Ruger LC9. Both are excelent guns both I prefer to carry the LC9. Actually it depends on how I feel in the morning when I get up!!I have the SR9c. The sizes didn't look like they differed too much. I like the higher mag capacity (1-10 round for concealment and 1-17 round) and fits better in my hand (meduim sized hands). The LC9 didn't feel comfortable in my hand. The LC9 will probably fit better in a pocket. SR9c is easy to take down. Try both out.
