I dont think you could go wrong with either of them . I got a hell of a deal for $319 on my LC9 just wish Ruger would include 2 magazines because its hell trying to get a spare and last I knew ruger was out also as the shop ordered some and they were still on back order
I have contacted numerous places that says there instock only to find out there also out
I would say you're probably in the ballpark. You can get magazines with extensions on them for the CM9. One day I would love to get my hands on the LC9, but it probably would not replace my CM9, because I find that the LC9 is just a little bit too big for a pocket firearm. I know that as of right now the gunshop I work at is out of stock of the LCP and LC9, because as soon as we get them in stock they sell out within a week or two. Probably, because the only other place that sells firearms in my neck of the woods is Gander Mountain, which has a mark up of atleast fifty dollars or more on all their firearms .

Thank you both for pointing that out. I will take a closer look at this gun.

Okay,here's a question for you. What does DAO mean.

I find that 'sticky holster' very interesting. I will look into those if the time ever comes that I can CC.

DAO means double action only. Since there is no exposed hammer, you can't cock it for single action fire.

DAO = Double Action Only.

Single Action = shooter must cock the hammer to fire the weapon, such as Ruger Single Six.

Double Action pistols give the shooter the option of cocking the hammer before squeezing the trigger or just pulling the trigger to cock & fire.

A DAO require the trigger to be pulled to cock and fire because the hammer is internal.

Thank you. It never occurred to me, but it makes perfect sense, that if there is no exposed hammer it cannot be shot single action. I figured it was double action something-or-other but I couldn't figure it out.
