    The trigger pull is probably like a Kel-tec P-11, 15 to 20 pounds? It must have some sort of safety in the trigger. I could be wrong though.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    count me in. I'll probably try to pick one up 6 or more months after its been released. I've been hoping for this pistol from Ruger for a long time now. If they do put out a 1911 that would be cool but I'm way more interested in an LC9.

    Ruger should have a guaranteed seller on their hands!

    Good for Ruger. They're listening.

    Not surprisingly, it seems on par with - although slightly heftier than a PF9:

    LC9: Length 6.00", Barrel Length 3.12", Width 0.90", Height 4.50", Weight 17.10 oz.
    PF9: Length 5.85", Barrel Length 3.1" Width 0.88", Height 4.30", Weight 12.70 oz.

    'Looking forward to reading those reviews!

    It will be interesting to compare this to the Sig 290. The sig is a bit larger and I'm sure will be more expensive but will also probably have a better trigger which on small pistols is a big selling point for me. On the flip side I don't see either replacing the role my SP101 as a carry piece but I wouldn't mind one as a maxpedition bag gun.

    Rollo,
    I'm not sure if it'll have that great of a trigger, the P290 looks like a subcompact P250 and I didn't like the trigger on that when I tried it. It doesn't feel like their other P series or SigPro series DA pulls.

    With that said I'm also not a big fan of the LCP trigger, and with the shrouded hammer area I'm guessing the LC9 will be similar.

    Looks like the LC9 will compete (again) with Kel Tec, this time the PF9. Almost same dimensions as the Kahr P9/CW9 at a much lower cost.

    Wish it were smaller though - the PM9 is smaller than the LC9. The LC9 does look too big for most pockets.

    Hmmm...swing and a miss for me...maybe of interest to my wife though.

    A friend stopped by the office today to see if I had my LCP on me (I did). He asked to dry-fire it because he was thinking about getting one, but wanted to feel the trigger. He pulled it about 3/4 of the way and looked at me as though it wasn't working. I said 'keep pulling'... he finally got it to click. Somehow, I don't think Ruger will be selling him an LCP today...

    Looks great, but I already have a PM9 and no reason to look any further.

    It seems to be about the same size as my taurus 709.

    Interesting little gun. Wife is looking for something small and light weight for carry. Might have to check it out when they become available in stores.

    It is actually almost the exact same size as the Kahr CW9, but the Kahr grip "looks" longer. The difference is in the top of the frame/slide, it is taller? making the grip shorter, but still overall same height as the CW9 (4.5"). Same width, about same length, however... the Kahr is 15 and some ounces, and the Ruger is 17.10 ounces, a bit heavier than the Kahr.

    Other than that, looks good. Shorter grip, and maybe a lower price point.

    I agree totally. The smoothness of the trigger won't even come close to the Kahr. Love my PM9.

    I am just glad Ruger is thinking and keeping new stuff out there. Will I buy one? Most likely. Will I have an issue with it? Maybe.. Will ruger fix it in a timely fashion? Absolutely. Based on my previous experence.

    Good job, SR
