This is a discussion on The Ruger LC9 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I like it so far in pics. Can't wait for the reviews....
Very nice. The extra 2 oz. in weight over the Kahr could be a plus. Given how nice the trigger is on the SR9c, maybe they've been able to do something good with this one, too.
Since I've got the SR9c, this would be a redundant firearm in my lineup, so I think I'm still going to get the 638 2.5in. to fill in the easier-carry gap - but if I didn't have the Ruger already, I'd be looking real hard at this one. Looking forward to seeing the reviews. Ruger has staked out a niche for producing high-quality firearms at a solid pricepoint.

Since it has an external safety maybe it has a nice trigger, like the SR9c.

How long before the LC40 is announced?

I would've preferred a striker fired pistol.
I don't like the manual safety.

Depending on the reviews, I might have a double pocket carry going on. PF9 in one pocket. LC9 in the other.

I was just about ready to get a LCP this week....now I'm not sure if I should wait another month or so untill I can check out the LC9?
I like it, I will be taking a look.
Nothing new. Yawn.
Makes me glad I got rid of my LCP well, tomorrow.
This will probably be the replacement for my missing Walther PPS (Price is just too much for me at the moment). It has real sights so that's a HUGE plus over the LCP, the trigger is supposed to be "Nice" so thats another huge plus over the LCP, 9mm....say no more.
Remember: All three of this guns below have the exact same width:
. . . . . . . . . Ruger PC9 . . Walther PPS . SIG P290
Barrel Length: . . 3.12 . . . . . 3.2 . . . . . 2.9 _ inches
Length Overall: . .6.0 . . . . . .6.3 . . . . . 5.5
Height: . . . . . . . 4.5 . . . . . .4.4 . . . . . 3.9
Weight: . . . . . . .17.1 . . . . 19.4 . . . . 20.5 _ oz
I fully agree that I expect that the SIG P290 will most likely have a better trigger pull than this new Ruger.
I like it but I don't think I will get one. This is a very good design and I think that a lot of people are going to buy into it. I would rather buy a Walther PPS or Glock 26 and I prefer to pocket carry a J frame.
