I have to say CZ 75 price might be higher then 500 now but I got mine for 350 sometime ago can't beat the CZ accuracy and overall balance.

Any one have any comments on the Ruger LC 9? Good or bad.

Joe,

My wife got an LC9 for Christmas and a trip to the range showed 100% reliability. Federal FMJ's and Corbon SD rounds fed perfectly. (We shot approx. 200 rounds total).
The trigger is good, but not quite as good as a Kahr. I believe it will smooth out with time. Pre-staging the trigger works the best for me. The only problem so far is the front sight won't stay put. We had it reset and within 50 rounds or so it was walking to the right of the slide. It's at the gunsmith now so as soon as its get back we'll try again. This is the only negative happening with this firearm. Otherwise, very good overall and my wife loves it.

Stay Sharp!

Considering the consequences is never wasted time.

I own and carry a PF 9 daily. It has been 100% reliable, but is DA only which is why I didn't mention it. Of course if you have $500 to spend, you could get two PF9s. (I wouldn't mind having another).

I relied on my wife's research when buying my first pistol. I didn't know anything about pistols & hadn't even shot my revolvers in 20+ years, but I wanted a pistol for concealed carry.

I only used computers at work. She researched for her pistol on the 'net & at local gun stores & decided on a Bersa Thunder .380. Trusting her decision on brand, I bought a Bersa Firestorm Mini .40 (same as their Thunder, just some cosmetic differences) & have never regretted it.

Course, they & 1911s are addictive & she has wondered what she got started!

Default Low priced 9mm

For my money you can't beat a Bersa Thunder 9 Pro Compact. Always reliable!

I have a full size 9MM S&W but found it too large as a carry weapon - especially during the summer. I ended up purchasing a Ruger LC9 and love it. Fits nicely in my cargo pant front pocket, doesn't irritate me while driving and leaving in my pocket, almost a "point-n-shoot" from 7 yards distance and was the right price, under $400. I've never had a feed problem with about 1k rounds. I also like the extended magazine for those of us with large hands.

The long trigger pull takes some getting used to as compared to the modified 5 lb pull on my full size.
