Ruger lc9 owners
 
Hey all just picked up a new Ruger LC9 Saturday. Using it as a summer carry/backup when I don't feel like toting around my G17. Anything I need to know about them? Since they're relatively new haven't heard a lot of feedback bad nor good. Shot 100 rounds through it so far no problems. (Yet) I think its a pretty solid gun so far I just hate stripping the thing, the stupid loaded chamber indicator and the magazine safety. Shoots great and not as much muzzle flip as I thought it was gonna be. Thanks in advance for comments

There are lots of YouTube videos about how to remove the magazine safety and lower the profile of the loaded chamber indicator

A friend of mine has one with a laserguard and carries it in a Theis holster made here in Arkansas. He loves it!

I don't know what could be easier than field stripping an LC9. Do it a couple more times and you'll realize how easy it really is. Enjoy. I do mine. :D

Um....field stripping a Glock is much easier....just sayin. But yea it gets easier still don't love the take down.

The loaded chamber indicator does kinda bother me but I think a drimil tool is in its future. Other than that I have had no problems or other dislikes about mine. But Iv only had it 2 weeks and have only put a few boxes though it.

My LC9 is awesome. 200 rounds through it so far and it has been great. Would recommend to anyone for concealed carry!

Man, I wish I had your money :)
To be able to buy a handgun without doing research first is something I always wanted to do.
Maybe some day.

Wow....way to start talking crap. I really liked the way the gun felt. Was really curious to see if anybody who had one had much to say about them. I did some research. Yea I don't like the chamber indicator and don't love the mag safety...but still love the gun. Chamber indicator has no effect on the gun and when I thought about it...I wouldnt carry an extra mag so the magazine safety not a big deal. Field stripping....yea don't love it but I'm used to a Glock. BUT I CAN LOOK PAST ALL THESE ISSUES BECAUSE IT SHOOTS GREATS, FEELS GREAT, AND CONCEALS QUITE NICELY.
Why am I explaining myself?
