Hello bitter clingers. Went to local neighborhood addiction enabler (gun shop) tonight. I've been wanting a single stack 9mm as a traveling partner as my Glock 19 gets kinda bulky inside the waistline. Ended up adopting a new Ruger LC9. I really like the fit and feel in my small-medium sized hands. It fits well in jeans pocket and disappears in my inside the pants holster. Field strip is a PITA at first but not bad. We've been spoiled by newer designs and their take down steps. I plan on getting some trigger time tomorrow. paid $359 + tax. So far, I'm very happy but the final proof is in the shooting. Cheers for now.
