    Impossible is not a word. It's just a reason for someone not to try!

    Agreed. I'd love to shoot it. Seems like it could retail for about $300-350.

    I'll pick one up in a few months. Looks to be a great CCW option and my LCP and SR9c will still have their places in my carry routine.

    This should sell very well and when people knock Ruger for copying Kel Tec or imitating Taurus who cares? We all know that even if they're similar to those makers, Ruger will do it better for a little bit more money. That's confidence in quality for an EDC.

    If Glock had released a single stack pocketable 9mm the Glockophiles wouldn't be able to stop foaming at the mouth!

    This gun will make Ruger a lot of money.

    MSRP is $443 so at the local dealer, probably right around $400 or a little less at first. Then it may drop a little more by the end of summer.

    I like the looks of it, and I have two LCP's which are pretty great as far as I'm concerned. I may look into one after some more comparisons with others already out there like the Kahr.

    Regardless, I think they'll sell like hotcakes. No doubt about it.

    I really wish Glock would get off the crapper and put out a single stack 9mm and maybe a .380! They already have a .380 in Europe, if they'd just tool up their USA plant and manufacture them here, they'd be selling a lot more pistols. They have to know sales would be through the roof. They're not stupid.

    I won't get rid of my LCP but I might bring a big brother in to keep it company.

    Just finished reading about the Glock 28 which is a 10 or 12 round .380 not available for import. It's the exact same dimensions as the G-26 or G27 so I can see why they aren't making it in the US.

    But if they made a single stack 9mm it'd be selling off the shelves.

    I think there was a niche for the LCP. None of the other major players were making a well made "little" pistol. Sure, Keltec makes one but many people don't think Keltecs are all that great. Seacamp makes one but doesn't have the name recognition (or the volume).

    The small 9mm pistol market has considerably more players in it. Kahr, Walther, S&W, Taurus, Keltec are just the ones off the top of my head. I'm sure if we dig there are probably at least ten more. IMO Ruger missed the mark on this big time. There is no real niche here, only stiff competition.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    True, but think of all the first-time gun owners who bought an LCP. If they're back in the gun store looknig for something a bit bigger/more substantial, they may think fondly of Ruger again. Or amybe not ... I am really just guessing here.

    Who knows? Ruger has a good enough name to attract buyers. The gun will probably be nicer than a Keltec and cheaper than a Kahr. So it could work for them. It just won't go crazy like the LCP because the LCP really had no competition.

    I think Ruger is hoping that some of the people that currently have the LCP will upgrade to the new LC9. So there may be an influx of used LCP's hitting the used gun market in the near future. God Bless

    A shame they never put decent sights on the LCP.

    There is no comparison at all with a Seecamp .380 and either the LCP or Keltec.

    The Seecamp is a great deal smaller than these two and is all Stainless Steel... however it is a great deal more expensive and harder to get your hands on it. It is way more of a mouse gun than the others and in a different class being all metal. Its closest comparison is the larger and heavier NAA Gardian .380 which is more affordable and an all Metal .380 pistol as small as the LCP and Keltec.

    No one uses them. They probably shouldn't have any at all.
