Default I bought a new Ruger LC9

Well this past week I bought the new LC9 (about 20% larger than the LCP and in 9mm).



I really like this gun. - IMHO Ruger has hit another home run.

I can and do carry it in my front jeans pocket (it fills the pocket full, but is comfortable , very comfortable in baggy cargo shorts).

I still use a DeSantis Nemesis Holster for it (only bigger).

It has good sights and I ran my 1st 100 rounds through it (all I've had time to put through it ) w/o a burp.

Better go look at one, you won't be sorry if you decide to buy one.

How's the grip? Trigger? Accuracy?

Looks very cartable for sure!

That is one good looking gun. I have always liked ruger's products, and this is an example of why. Range report soon?

Looking at your pic, the gap between the slide and frame worries me. How is the fit/tolerance?

Cabelas have them for $399.99 (saw their flier) to those who are interested.

Very nice. Anyone have both the LCP and the LC9? Be cool to see side by side comparison.

I'm very interested in one of these for summer carry.

I think you'll be very pleased with the gun when you actually hold it.

I was asked on another forum : "How much of a "noticeable" difference is there in pocket carry between the two in your opinion?"

It's about 20% larger than my LCP.

Last Saturday night I carried it to a party in my front jeans pocket (in a DeSantis Nemesis holster) and my pocket felt full, but not uncomfortable.

Sunday was warm and I carried it in my front pocket of my baggy cargo shorts and that was very easy.

This is a very nice and slim 9mm gun.
