Lc9s

Just bought a new LC9S. Beats the hell out of the LCP .380 I bought several yrs ago. Man I love the trigger on the 9S. I got to get out and shoot it this weekend.

I have the LC9s and LC9s Pro and a couple LC9.

I think you will really like the "s" model.

I have to stop a second, if I've been shooting some other guns with not too great triggers, because the "s" feels like it's going off by itself.

IMO the only thing the gun needs to make it a excellent carry gun is a Crimson Trace laser.

Good choice, congrats. It's a very discreet carry pistol. Ruger did a excellent job with the striker version, it's much improved over the original LC9. The grip was too thin for my hand and a grip sleeve solved that issue.

Nice set up, my eyes ain't what they use to be what holster is that? I'm using a Sticky now but that looks like a good addition.

Really nice shooting BTW.

Finally, after owning for several months I was able to get to the range and shot my LC9s Pro. Wow that trigger is great almost too light, don't put you finger on it if you're not ready to shoot.

I'm just and average shooter and I was getting head shots at 10 yards, center hits at 7 using weak hand unsupported. I love this gun!

My wife likes this pistol and I've received hints (threats) that she would like to have something slimmer to take the place of her Charter snubbie. Guess I need to start looking for another one.

For my needs, a minimalist kydex holster work great for small pistols. Cooks, PJ and Blackdog Concealment are but a few of the many makers of these IWB holsters.

Just finished shooting ten magazines. I would have shot more but it's drizzling and getting late.

Shooting about 7-8 yards using the laser.

Even though I liked the LC9 and shot about a couple thousand rounds through it (over a thousand the first eight days I had it) I do like this "s" model a lot better.

Is that a Talon grip or did you stipple it?

Congrats on the new LC9S! I picked up the PRO version of it at the local LE shop, mainly because there was no manual safety on it. I have a Shield with a safety, and don't really like having it there. I don't engage the safety when carrying it anyway, as the trigger is covered by the holster, and the pull is not 1911-like...

I've also got an LCP, and it is one of the newer Gen2 models with different sights and a shorter-travelling trigger. Each one of my carry guns serves different purposes, but I won't get rid of the LCP.

Don't the LC9, LC9s, and LC9s Pro all have the same holster footprint? I'm looking at Bladetech and they are having a sale -want to pick one up then get a LC9s Pro.

I recently bought a LC9s with slide safety. WOW, what a smooth light trigger pull.

Would love to see Ruger come out with a striker fired LCP.
