Re: ruger lc9

I have one, and like it. I have not submitted my application yet for my LTC but have it carried it open when hiking. It does fit in a larger pocket, and I believe would carry nicely in a good IWB holster. The trigger is a bit long but overall for the price I like it. If it feels comfortable in your hands that is all that matters. It shots well for a small pistol. I can manage 2-3" groups at 8-10 yards with 124grain Federal Hydroshocks and it shots the cheap Remingtons just as well.

Re: ruger lc9

My lil bro has one and it fits in the hand nice. I believe they went with a long trigger pull for safety but i believe it has a safety as well which doesnt make sense. His shoots well. Id buy one if id didnt already own a .380

Re: ruger lc9

I really enjoy mine! The long trigger pull is somewhat of a negative, but it shoots great! It's also not too cumbersome to carry! BTW - I do not have laser sights on mine!

My brother has the 380, nice little conceal gun and very light, but everybody tells me to get the 9. I talked to a couple LE officers last week and they both recommended the 9 over the 380.

I'm interested to hear why they recommended the 9mm over the 380? The 9mm's advantage is certainly cheap ammo especially for practice but the ballistics seem "close enough" that I don't see that as an deciding factor. The 380 is surely a small weapon that you could always have with you.

Re: ruger lc9

Kind of a love hate gun for me so far. I love the thin size for IWB carry, but trigger breaks pretty far back for my hand. I push my shooting with small pistols as far as out as I can for fun, and the Lc9 frustrates me beyond 15 yards. Reliability has been outstanding. I have tried with CT laser but prefer without for carry. I would recommend Lc9 to person looking for concealed carry firearm.

Re: ruger lc9

I have one on order. I shot a friend of mine's gun and I liked it. The biggest con for this gun was a long trigger pull. I didn"t see it as a problem as it pulls fairly smooth IMO.
