How about a really positive review?

I've had my LC9s (Pro) since mid-February. It was test-fired 2/2/15. It now has over 1,000 rounds through it. None are factory loads; I shoot only handloads. These are the same I use in IDPA and USPSA matches in my CZs and Berettas -- 124 gr plated round nose bullet over either 4.9 gr of Unique or 4.1 gr of Bullseye with Federal primers. These loads are slightly softer than most factory loads. At right around 1100 fps (in a CZ 75B) it's a "Power Factor" of about 133. A PF of 125 is minimum requirement for "Minor" classification is USPSA. At least 120 is required by IDPA. So, while these are not powder puffs, they're not hot, either.

I have used this little pistol in four IDPA matches as a CCP (Compact Carry Pistol) and once as a BUG (Back Up Gun). I've done the rest of the shooting on the range and plinking at home. And I've dry-fired it a gazillion times. I've had no malfunctions.

There have been complaints from others about LC9s extractors. Mine is fine and holds the case tightly again the breech face. It ejects the cases reasonably close together about 12 feet away just past my right shoulder. There also have been complaints about releasing magazines accidentally or way too easily. Mine holds my four USA-made magazines so firmly that I have to press the release with my weak-hand thumb. I can't do it with my strong hand thumb as I can with all my larger semi-autos. This is fine with me. And, some have complained that their feed ramp was like a wash board. Mine came with a mirror finish.

Some have pointed out that the bluing on the top of the faceted breech area of the barrel wears. It does. I addressed the problem by polishing the breech and entire barrel. I like the way it looks and it does away with the problem.

One final opinion . . . My LC9s has a 4½ pound release. That's way too light [for me] to consider carrying this pistol in my pocket or an IWB holster. (I carry it in an OWB holster in IDPA matches.) So, for me, this is a "game gun," not a CCW for defensive purposes. For that I'd much prefer an old-fashioned LC9. As one who has six Berettas and two CZs that are DA/SA and eight S&W revolvers, I don't find the older LC9 trigger objectionable.

Just my take. Here are some photos.







Wow, I really like the polish job, care to share your method?

Three Ruger's LC380,LC9,LC9s.JPG LC9, LC9s Pro and my ladies LC380 in Purple. As for the triggers I have no problem with the hammer guns triggers. In fact I really think the striker models trigger is too light for defense. All guns are awesome and love these Ruger's. Here is a pic of the three guns.

Picked up a few accessories for the new gun, have close to 500rnds through it and no issues. Love this little thing more and more every day.

Bought the LC9 about 8 years ago. My 1911 was just getting to big to haul around. Added the LC9S a few weeks ago because I got it in a trade. Love them both.

mukwah, the original LC9 is a good firearm and one worth keeping. We have them still and I currently have a EC9s in rotation. I was surprised how I ended up enjoying these little 9mm's. I often thought about trying the LCP models but ended up getting a EC9s as a gift from the wife and when I started training wit it I loved it. I may someday try the 380 but for now will keep the Rugers I know. Good pics! How dependable are your LCP's?

Most LCPs are very reliable. Most issues manifest themselves from the start or after high round count. They are shoot little, carry a lot guns mainly.YMMV
