    Same length as the Glock 26.
    "Slightly" thinner than the Glock 26.
    1/2" taller than a Clock 26.
    3-less rounds than a Glock 26.
    Internal lock.

    I'll stay with the Glock. Good effort on Ruger's behalf though.

    About time, except I personally don't care for the manual safety. I think I will just stick to my Kahr CW9 also as it has been reliable from day one.
    God bless our troops!

    You've identified the issue with small single stack 9mm pistols. To get decent capacity, you need a longer grip - and the grip is the part that prints. I'll also take the added thickness of the G26 in return for the greater capacity and shorter grip.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I'd wait a while. I am sure there will be some minor bugs to work out.As was witht he LCP. That being said, I intend on getting one when I feel comfortable that the initial issues, if any, are resolved.

    I like manual safeties. I can pocket carry my PT145 Pro, so this gun, shorter in both length and height and narrower should be a piece of cake. Will I buy one? I don't know. I really don't need one, but it does look pretty nice. Maybe it would make a good BUG or just a basic pocket carry gun.

    Maybe I'll just go ahead and get the LCP for now. It'd be nice to be able to compare them side by side in person though.

    And now Mr. Quinn's review. Biased or not, he does a good job of comparing it to the LCP and SR9c.

    I look forward to comparing the P-290 to the LC9 side by side.
    But I think a LC9 will fit between my LCP & SR9c...
    By the way I am glad they have a safety!

    I could work past the external safety if it's not too hard. After all, I like 1911's, but the mag disconnect is a serious no no for any CCW. That would just about eliminate it for carry for me. If you ever have to clear the weapon or change mags you're down, completely! Very bad. Also, I think they were smart from a marketing and mfging perspective to add the chamber loaded indicator so they can seel the gun in California but persnally I don't like how it looks and I don't like something that big sticking up above the surface of the slide.

    I think it'll sell well but I think it's a very unfortunate set of choices they made. There's enough wrong with it that I would never carry one for CC. I don't understand why more people aren't upset by the mag disconnect?

    Do you have a lot of problems with safeties snagging on clothing? Or is that just something you fear might happen based on no specific evidence?

    I've never have clothing get snagged on the external safeties of any of my 1911's, my old S&W 459, Walther PPK/S, or Walther PP. I also never hear of that happening to others either.

    I have, on more than one occasion get clothing from my cover garments get snagged between the entire gun and holster creating a problem re-holstering, or have clothing get hung up between my hand and the grip of the gun fouling my draw. But at no time has an external safety created any snags or fouled draws with my weapons.

    You may be worried about a problem which does not exist, unless you've had that happen to you before, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Honestly not impressed at all. Bigger then Sig and Kel Tec offerings, and less capacity then Sig.....
