    I'm intrigued. Looked a little bigger in his hands than I expected... That was one interesting beard that guy had.

    Even with those written specs, it still looked bigger than expected

    In his hands just holding it to display it looks huge. He obviously does not have small hands. When hes shotting it looks very much like a PF-9.

    Going to the gun show in Richmond this weekend. Hopefully someone there will have one to check out.

    In some of the photos and videos I've seen of the new LC9 it does look like it may be a bit larger than hoped for. I have really wanted Ruger to come out with a pocket 9 but now I just hope that it will be pocketable. Of course it couldn't be the size of the LCP and would have to be beefed up so a size increase is not a surprise.

    I already have an LCP and an SR9c and if the LC9 can't fill a pocket carry role I may have to pass. It looks a bit bigger than the LCP and a bit smaller than the SR9c.

    It will really all come down to getting to handle one in person and being able to make a real size comparison.

    The loaded round indicator is ugly, hate mag disconnects on a defensive weapon and I could have lived without the thumb safety as I suspect it won't be as smooth as the one on a 1911. It'll probably sell well but I'm disappointed that it wasn't more seriously inclined to CC. It seems to me that it was too lawyered up and that there was more of a focus on selling in CA instead of creating a more serious SD gun but then again, I know better. Gun companies are business and they're only real focus is on making money. Can't blame them but i'd hoped for something that would compare more to a Kahr but at a lower price point. I was REALLY hoping it would rival the PM9. Kahr has the it down pat when it comes to making a gun for CCW. No safety or eternal controls, no mag disconnect, smooth DAO trigger, good sights, light, etc. But you pay for them. This gun will compete well against the PF9 but I really don't like the overboard safety features that clutter up the gun or make it less suitable for defensive use.

    Oh well....

    I see it as being a nice blend between the SR9 (and SR40) and the LCP.

    Hell, if you don't like a thumb safety, then it's simple, DON'T USE IT! Why dismiss a gun simply because it has safety features? O.o
