Well I hit the range yesterday and put 100 x WWB and 20 x Hydra-Shoks thru the LC9; I hope some prospective buyers find this useful: It did great! No issues whatsoever, accurate at 7 & 10 yards and recoil was not bad at all.
The good: Size, weight, reliability, 9mm, accurate, it's a Ruger(!), price, smooth trigger, came with the extended floorplate
The "bad" I use this loosely - I would like better sights, maybe a little bigger; spare mag would be nice. Some people hate the safety's that are on the gun, but they don't bother me.
Overall: When I got rid of my M&P I was kinda sad, but now that I've shot the LC9 I'm extremely happy. Shot very well and if it puts another 100 thru as well as the first group I'll be thrilled. IMO the size/weight of this gun plus the 9mm round make it the perfect ccw weapon. All this for $337 out the door?? You can't beat it!
I also put about 50 thru my LCP (for a total of right at 300 rounds) and it was also flawless. IMO the triggers are similar: very long pull. They just take a little getting used to, once you learn the trigger it's cake. I actually like the long trigger pull, but that's just me.
Here are pics of the two of 'em....Way to go Ruger, A+++ from me!
