    This is probably the smallest I would really want to go shooting a +P 9mm round anyway...my PPS was comfortable to shoot. I'm leaning more towards this due to the price over the Sig as well. May even try standard pressure, lighter bullets, "Reduced recoil" rounds to see if my accuracy would increase if anyone has any suggestions?

    I might as well just go a head and order one of these honestly...

    Only gripes are the Mag Safety and Manual Safety which really aren't that big a deal to me.

    I'm a big fan of Ruger - I have (and have had) more Rugers than any other brand of firearm. That said, I agree with you - the mag disconnect, the thumb safety, and the internal lock are all deal-killers to me.

    Three strikes - this one is out of contention, for me.

    I've had a couple days to read about and view the new Ruger. It offers nothing that betters my Kahr P9 and in a few ways is less desireable, ie; manual safety, lock, etc. I'll wait for the Sig, but it looks like a similar case, only heavier. I do desire a hammer, but so far the P9 has the most of what I want in a CCW.

    They do.

    It's called the Redhawk with a 4" barrel and the Super Redhawk Alaskan if you want a 2.5" barrel.

    why in the world are you all complaining about the safety... You don't have to use it..... I would only use it for pocket carry or putting back in the holster.

    Correct me if I'm wrong as I've never owned a .44 cal gun, but like the .357 mag shoots all .38 special rounds, doesn't the .44 mag shoot the .44 special rounds as well?

    They were probably both added to help the handgun qualify for sale in California. The state of California is very safety conscious when it comes to handguns.

    Wow, at $341, Ruger would indeed sell a ton of them.

    I wonder if the LC9 might get targeted by the Anti-gun lobby and be labelled a "Saturday Night Special" ?? They will absolutely hate this gun.

    It certainly fills a hole in the Ruger product line, right in between the LCP, and the SR9c in size.







    The loaded chamber indicator is downright butt ugly, however. This is probably another thing done to satisfy the safety bureaucrats.

    Yes it does. Look at a Black Hawk and compare it with a Super Black Hawk.The Chamber and Frame are larger on the SBH.I would like a 44 special on a GP 100 sized (smaller) frame .If you would compare a Red Hawk to a GP 100 you can see what I'm trying to explain..Stay Safe..J.H.
    I'll proably buy a Black Hawk in 44 Special.It's made with what looks like the Old Flat Top Frame...NICE.. :)
