    Great tip. I’d add to that, the hex head on the ambidextrous mag release. They include 3 Allen wrenches but none to fit that screw. Make sure it fits tight.

    If the buttock folded it would be perfect.

    Folded buttocks sounds like a niche porn mag.

    Picked up a sub 2000 the other day for $379. Great shooter.

    Yes. Good catch. I can and plan to move the optic farther forward. That was where I had it with the factory stock. It needs to be moved out but I’ll wait to go to the range so I can make sure it’s still sighted in.

    Ruger is putting out some of the most useful and fun firearms these day, IMO.

    Tanger, you will have fun. I’ve shot IDPA for years, and thought I’d give PCC a try this year for the S&Gs of it. I’m having a ball. The increased speed and accuracy are fun, and it’s also fun figuring out how to approach stages as it’s quite different from shooting a pistol.

    Congrats on the Ruger, too. I borrowed a friend’s for a bit, and was impressed with the design, quality, accuracy and price. There’s a lot of aftermarket support also. I’ll probably buy one when things get back to normal.

    Very nice. I have one with the Ruger chassis. It is a bit heavy but I guess that’s a consequence of the takedown mechanism? Enjoy shooting yours!

    I bought one a while back because of the take down feature and use of 32 round Glock mags...(have bunch of those) I have not yet fired it !!
    So it and the Sub 2K, same mags.....bring it on...

    familyman357 I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

    You can, ejection angle isn't a problem.

    Pretty fond of mine.

    My grandsons argue over who gets the most trigger time with it.

    And my wife likes it, weight and all.

    Edit to add: Ruger needs to make a wood stock, a la M1 Carbine (or even the previous Ruger Police Carbine) WITH A NON RAILED HANDGUARD.

    Sorry, swore I wasn't going to post on PCCs again without mentioning the edit. :)

    I liked my PC9 so much, I bought the .40 version as well. I really like the ballistics of the .40 round out of the 16” barrel. Equals a 10mm out of a 5 inch handgun.

    Both are set up as home defense guns with lights and red dots. A great home defense option here in California, where we are required to heartbreakingly neuter and butcher ARs to make them state compliant to satisfy the whims of retarded politicians. The Ruger PCC is good to go right out of the box.

    By chance have you chronographed the .40?

    What loads are you shooting?

    I have a Sub 2000 in .40 and shoot 180hp but no access to a chronograph.

    I have one in 9mm and its very accurate out to 50 yards. If I could find one in 40 I'd but it too.

    I haven’t but I will, just need to get to the range. Other people have done the chrono work. I’ll see if I can find some tables.

    I have my .40 loaded with Federal HSTs, 180gr for home defense. I usually shoot my own reloads at the range so good idea to chrono them.

    This brings up an interesting question. If most defensive pistol ammo is designed for penetration/expansion at velocities produced by handguns, is the increased velocity doing harm to the designed performance? Is it possible that my handgun ammo will expand too much, too soon and not penetrate when fired from a longer barrel?

    Yes, this is a concern. I’ve seen videos of some Gold Dot bullets fail (jacket separation) in a gel test when pushed too fast with Underwood loadings for example. I think I would stick with a bullet that is used in other faster calibers to assure it works through a longer barrel (e.g. .40 HSTs that are the same that are used in 10mm HSTs, 9mm HSTs that are the same used in .357 Sig HSTs, etc.). I don’t know for a fact that these same bullets are used in the different caliber offerings in the example I gave. Might be worth some research.
