I have one and it is my most carried gun. Saying that its going away as soon as I can afford a sig P938. It is extremly reliable and reasonably accurate. Basically it does what it is intended to do. I just cant stand the trigger and being a lefty the left side only safety is a down side. $356 is about what I paid for mine without the laser but that was also when they first came out. Still sounds like a deal to me.

I sold my Kel Tec PF9 and kept my LC9. It is well made and reasonably accurate. I agree with posts about the long trigger pull. It is hard to be really accurate with the trigger staging as it does. PF 9 trigger pinched my finger but stages better. All in all tho the Ruger is a great firearm.

I'm currently going to sell mine not because I dislike it but I want to limit my brands of firearms to hopefully one.
Please don't become a glock fanboy it's bad for your rep

If that's a shot at my username I set this up before I bought my first handgun. I'm a s&w fan and starting to get into ruger

I was talking about glade. He's trading in all his non glock guns for glocks...poor soul. On the LC9 it's a great gun, I don't mind the pull that much my issue is having to use a tool to take it apart. Just not a fan of needing something like that to take apart my gun.

That's exactally why I'm Trading off my other pistols, I want my firearms to break down the same way. Nothing against other brands since I'll still have a Taurus that no body wants to buy lololol. Not a fan boy though, just like my glocks. The only bad thing I said was the trigger pull sucked but I feel my pros outweighed the cons for my statement on the lc9

Trade all them glocks in for 1911's ;D I'm just giving ya crap though. Glocks are good I just can't stand them I like to blindfold myself and be able to take a part my guns I can't do that looking for a tool (don't worry my wife thinks I'm crazy too).

So I picked up my lc9 and took it to the range today. Snappy little devil. Took a few rounds to adjust my grip but I've got it where I want it and all in all its a very nice "pocket" pistol. It would only fit in my cargo pockets but I think it'll be a great carry gun
