Ruger LC9 Review

I forgot I wrote that.  Other than some typos not too bad a review. I never did sell my original LC9. The used price on the LC9 was so low that it wasn't worth selling and buying the S version.

I carry it quite often in my pants pocket without a holster. I also don't use the thumb safety which seems superfluous on a double action.

How long have you been waiting to work that word into a post  Big Grin

Did I mention that my wife laid claim to the Ruger?  Yeah, as soon as I brought it home she wanted it for her CCW gun.  Told her she has to shoot her 709 and the Ruger Monday and then decide which will work better for her.  The 709 is striker fired so I'm thinking she'll like it better but I'll give her the choice.

How about 9x18 ??? Sportier than .380, yet not quite 9mm

Well the two LC9 magazines, that weren't suppose to be here until Tuesday, arrived yesterday.  The night sights that were suppose to be here yesterday won't arrive until tomorrow.   Big Grin

That's okay, I'm thinking I'll go to the range on Tuesday instead of Monday.  Too much happening on Monday anyway.  That way I'll have the sights and be able to put them on for the range trip.

@ Mac and JRSC,

Your vocabularies are a little too comprehensive for my domain.  I wish you would articulate a little more coherently.  

I would hate to be up a well know tributary without proper means of propulsion.

Cool

TFO Truglo nights sights were installed.  Like them!  Very visible in the daylight.  Want to see them in the dark tonight.  Also put the rubber feeling Talon grips on.  May still get one more mag  it right now I feel pretty good about the Ruger.

Looked at a couple of Walther PPS M2's as well but neither panned out.  Their dirt cheap right now as well.

No hurry...

PSA has LCPs for $169 off and on.  My daughter and I  went and looked at them a couple weeks ago as she wants something to carry with her carry permit.  She thought it was too big (she's a twenty something who wears tight clothes).  Ultimately I decided to let her use my Keltec P32 until she decides what she wants. Even then she said "is there anything smaller?"  Not much, back in the day .25 autos were popular vest pocket guns. The little baby Brownings or the Bauer copy of the Browning might be smaller. 

Remington makes a pretty small 380 called the RM380. Not a big fan of Remington pistols but Remington is in financial trouble and they are giving big rebates.  A  shop I know was selling them for  $229 with a $100 rebate so $119 after the rebate. That pistol used to be known as the Rohrbaugh R380 and Remington bought the rights to it. It was a quality made pistol and apparently still gets good reviews.    I went and looked at them, balked, then went back a couple hours later and they were sold out.


Looks like they're already sold out of them!  I submitted my email for when they come back in stock.  Almost pulled the trigger on it this morning when I got the ad but wanted to research them out a bit first.  Haven't seen a negative on the gun itself yet.  Tempting to get over the LCP.
