Hello Everyone. My name is Jeffrey and I'd like to tell you about my Ruger LC9 and a bit about our first trip to the local indoor range. I have always been a Ruger fan. I used to own an LCR, that I purchased as soon as they came out, in .38SPL. I had an initial issue with the timing on my LCR, but it was immediately taken care of by Ruger. Their customer service is second to none. This is why I decided to purchase another Ruger. When my tax return came in, in early March, I went out and purchased an LC9 after looking at numerous different handguns in this particular segment. I instantly fell in love with the LC9. I will admit, if I had shopped around more, I probably could have found a better deal, since I paid $414. However, I am not upset at the price I paid. Now, I am a little ashamed to admit that I purchased my LC9 in March, and did not fire it until August 31st! !! I know, I am a horrible gun owner. I got so busy with school, work, and getting ready for a baby, that I could never seem to find the time for a trip to the range. I have a few holsters for my LC9, but the majority of the time, I conceal with the help of my Keyhole Holsters Mini Complete Concealment Kydex holster. It is an IWB holster that uses leather as well as Kydex. Keyhole removed an entire inch of leather from the lower portion of the holster. Some like this, some do not. I LOVE this holster. It is super comfortable, and was made quickly. Keyhole Holsters is a veteran owned business which is a big deal to me. I also use an Uncle Mike's IWB and a DeSantis Tuckable. My Ruger, is 100% stock, just as it came from the factory. The only addition I have made, is a Hogue Grip Sleeve. AS many of you know, Hogue makes a phenomenal product, and I wouldn't use any other product in its place. Eventually, I'd like to add some Firesights. Anywho, I was finally able to get away and take my baby to the firing range. As many of you know, the Ruger LC9 is a Micro 9mm that holds 7 rounds in the magazine and 1 in the pipe. I always carry it with 8 rounds, however, at the range, I only load the magazine when I shoot. So, I shot 7 rounds between reloads. Also, I currently only have 1 magazine. I am not a sniper, or a competition shooter. I am an average, law abiding citizen that carries a firearm for protection. I do not train at any ridiculous distances while at the range. I normally put the target 7 yards (21 feet) away from me. Occasionally, I set the target 15 yards (45 feet) away. This particular trip to the range, I set the target 7 yards away. My first 7 rounds, of Federal 135 grain Ammunition, all ended up in a 3 inch group in the dead center of the target. The "10pt Zone" if you will. I was SERIOUSLY impressed with this little gun. I'm not perfect with it yet, nor do I have expect to be 100% in the same hole, every time. However, I am more than confident that the LC9 is a reliable (I shot 150 rounds with ZERO issues. Many more to come before it's even broken in.), 9mm that can easily fit into my pocket. I trust that I can hit an intended target on a regular basis. Like I said before, I am not an officer of the law, or a sniper, or a competition shooter, or any thing like that. I am an average Joe that lawfully carries a gun to protect myself and my family. Please take this write up at face value. I have included 2 pictures. One of the target after the 1st 7 rounds were shot. The other is a collage of the holster, the LC9, and shows how well it conceals. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. AND THE COMPLAINT: Ok, I have but one complaint. When you field strip the LC9 for cleaning, you have to push out a little retaining bar. I'm not sure of the technical name. It comes out easily enough, and goes back together easily enough, but the fact that I need a tool to dismantle the LC9 bothers me a little. That's it. That's my only complaint on an otherwise stellar weapon!
