    I'm not sure what advantage it has over the LCP other than one more round.

    My question would be: Why?

    Why would I want the size and weight of the LC9 with a less powerful round?

    Wow! I could be very interested in this. I have huge hands. A 380 that is just a bit larger than the LCP but doesn't give up much in concealability definitely would fit nicely in my arsenal.

    I thought the same thing when I saw it on the site. Maybe they will discontinue the LCP.

    I kinda like it. can see the option for some people that would rather shoot 380, maybe a bit less snappy than the 9mm

    Maybe for people that are recoil adverse? That's really the only thing I can think of.

    Or you could go with the LC9 and get the exact same gun in 9mm. Just saying...

    Hmm, I kinda like it. I can see those recoil sensitive folk looking for a slim and small design, but not necessarily needing pocket carry. 17 oz vs 9 oz of the LCP would certainly help with shoot-ability for newer shooters, as well. My husband hasn't pulled the trigger on his LCP purchase yet, I'll have to show him this. Anyone have any idea of date of availability of these?

    Never mind, I just looked at the specs more closely. It is the exact same size as the LC9. I thought it would be somewhere in between the LCP and the LC9. This seems pretty worthless.

    I also thought it would be a bit smaller. I bet if Ruger is making them somebody will purchase them.

    If you want the lower recoil of .380 auto, but safety features of the LC9, this one is for you.

    Or if you like the LCP, but want useable sights - this might be the right gun.

    Versus the LCP? Usable sites, less recoil, more rounds, external safety. Make sense to me. Also, loaded chamber indicator (not that I'd want it).

    This is new, too: Ruger® SR45™ Centerfire Pistol Models
