    Ruger LC9

    My wife is the proud new owner of a Ruger LC9. After getting it home and really looking at this gun. I think I'm just a little jealous. I want one now. Don't think I'll trade in my Glock 23 but I like the gun.

    None so far.

    1370 rounds through mine so far and 3 FTE on cheap range ammo. Perfect, no. Trustworthy, yes.

    I love my LC9 and find that I carry it more and more, but I am curious, has your wife actually shot it yet? I was thinking that it could be a bit intimidating for a woman to shoot, especially if she is a novice. How does she handle it?

    How are the triggers on these? I have a couple of Kel-Tec PF-9s that I've considered selling, mostly because the triggers suck. If I do, I'll either buy an LCP or a Kimber Solo. The triggers on the two Solos I've handled were sweet, but I've not yet fondled one of these little Rugers.

    The trigger is very very long. You have to pull the trigger all the way to the point where it just about "touches" the frame before it will fire. On reset, you feel a false reset point first, then you keep releasing till the second click. If you like to ride the trigger to reset, then it can cause short-stroking.

    All that being said it is a great little pistol, especially if you like the idea of a thumb safety for pocket or "purse" carry. With the introduction of the Kahr CM9, the price advantage of this pistol is somewhat diminished though. Still, I'd not hesitate to get this for anyone. It isn't a range gun, but it is perfect for SD CCW.

    I don't like the trigger, like the white dot sights, like the size and oddly, since I don't usually have a safety on my HGs I like the safety. Don't like the muzzle flip and recoil. Also, ashamed to admit, I can't hit anything with it, though I'm quite accurate at 7-10 yds with my XDm 9mm.

    Got a CT LG-412 to help things and it doesn't help much with accuracy. Guess I need to work on my grip and get a larger target and see just where I'm hitting. I think my grouping is OK, it's just all off center.

    Anyone know of a good holster for the Laser+LC9?

    I have about 500 rds. through mine now and really like it. I can wear it all day and hardly notice it is there.

    Update:

    I finally got some shots in a larger target at the range and discovered it was shooting about 3" low and 3" to the right, even with the laser. I did a primitive bench rest session and when I aimed up and to the right all the shots went into the 10 ring. Next trip I'll take the allen wrench and fix the laser sight. It's a bit odd since I've had three CT lasers and they all shoot dead center except this one on the LC9.

    As to holsters, I discovered that Uncle Mikes sells the IWB cheapo holster with a retention strap. Size 1 fits snugly and is a good buy until someone makes some decent holsters for it. I put it outside the pants but inside the belt for easy removal.

    I just got a little range time in with an LC9 yesterday. I really wanted to love this gun. I don't. It's not terrible by any stretch, just not great. The trigger is long and "springy", not really what I would call stiff but it felt spongy and the break seemed to be random. It was a range rental so I have no idea what the round count was on it. I put 50 through it and didn't have any malfs. but the trigger combined with the relatively slick grip made me feel like I was squeezing watermelon seeds. I'm eyeballing the Walther/S&W PPS now.

    I actually like the trigger, yes it's a longer pull, but I have no issues being very accurate with this gun. At the range it's just as accurate as my SR9c; although a completely different trigger.
