    My guess is that the striker’s metallurgy is such that when it goes all the way forward past where it goes to hit the primer, it isn’t strong enough.

    Not trying to trash a gun maker, but that would be a deal breaker for me. If a modern day center fire gun can't handle some dry practice, I would not trust it for carry. I don't abuse my guns, but I use them.

    Back on topic, I hope the replacement works well for you!

    On Thursday I bought a new carry gun- CZ P07. I live in a very safe area (as far as people go- more worried about animals) so I don’t carry a gun very much unless I’m in the woods or a farm- in which case I carry a 44 not a 9mm

    I am a die hard Ruger fan/owner and I say trash them.

    Completely unacceptable or he just talked to a bad tech.

    I would have immediately quoted what the manual says and it should say dry fire is ok. My LC9S manual say it.

    It would be odd if the EC9S is different unless they really cheapend it.

    I abuse my Rugers through heavy use because I need to know they will work in the worst of conditions. 20201017_213517.jpeg

    The only difference between the EC9S and LC9S is that the LC9S has adjustable sights. I’ll look at my owners manual

    So first off- you are definitely righty, they have the same owners manual image.jpg
    And my manual says it’s fine too. My guess is that he said this out of caution

    I will say this- while a much bigger gun- my new CZ conceals real well and doesn’t make me feel like I’m walking around with a 44 magnum on my hip. It’s kind of the best of both worlds- it’s big enough that my hands don’t feel squished and I have a decent capacity, yet small enough and light enough to be great for carry. The ergonomics of the gun are great, and it’s super reliable 5D169EDD-036A-40AF-B7E3-BF67792D58E9.jpeg

    I've had bad luck with Rugers.
    they are on my "do not buy list"
    Last good Ruger I had was my FIRST one and it was a Mark ONE 22 caliber pistol and I bought it used and it WORKED.
