Default Ruger LC9s

Anyone have this gun or have shot one? Just curious how accurate. See them listed for $309.

I have one, haven't shot it much. For me it's range is 10 ft and under.

In my opinion this is a great concealed carry option. It is small and lightweight. I was very impressed with the factory trigger on the LC9s. Like most small pistols I wouldn't want to have to engage a target that was a significant distance away, but it is acceptable and comfortable to shoot, especially for its size.

I have one. It easily groups 2 inches/5 shots at 20 ft. It's a sweet little gun. Trigger is excellent.

LC9 was great, but with one flaw - a really crappy trigger. The LC9s fixed that. I'm a little more accurate with the slightly larger SR9C, but the single stack LC9 is pretty slick.

Ruger is making some great pistols. Nothing left to add not already said.

I have one to and very happy with it. Love the loaded up feature .
When the chamber is full it has a tab that shows you there is a bullet in there.

How does it stack up against the other single stack concealed carry 9's, for those of you that have comparison shopped? Specifically the Shield, Glock43, Kahr, and the Sig for example

Trigger made me select the Ruger over the M&P shield.

I bought my wife this Ruger LCP-R (R=rasberry color) for Christmas. It's a .380. I have read very good reviews on this little gun. Very very light, the bottom half is a composite. I can't wait to shoot it, neither can the wife. She knows she's getting it.

Nice gift Chris. This would be for my wife also. Is $309 a good price?

I believe the MSRP on the colored models is $379 so yes $309 is a good price. I bought this one at the local range/gun shop. They had it listed at $350 and it was on sale for $299.

Funny thing is I was going to get it for my wife without her knowing. But we were at the range a week ago and after we got done shooting my guns we decided to just at some of the guns they had for sale. My wife was instantly drawn to the LCP. She asked to the clerk to hold it and she wasn't leaving without buying it. I told her I had already planned to get it for her for Christmas. She loves that color and ironically the shirt she had on that day matched the color of the gun exactly. Pretty cool we were on the same page for once. LOL.

Anyway with the sale price at $299 I had to get it on the spot. I have to pick it up this week. (background check and waiting period)

Sounds great. Thanks for the info. I know she will enjoy it.

I found the Shields trigger superior so go figure. In fact I think the Shield has about the best trigger out the box of all the single stack cc weapons in 9 and above CC weapons.

You might compare it to the S&W Shield or Glock 43 for a comparison and see what you like..

I am a Glock guy and I really like my little Shield...

I own a 19 that I absolutely adore but I don't think the 43 is People's Republic of Massachusetts compliant yet. I'm really wanting a CC single stack 9 and getting a bit impatient and I see a lot of people really like the Shield and the LC9s

Had to install a ghost pro connector to get the trigger respectable on my 43. No pulling shots to the left now. It took right much filing to get it to fit but was well worth the trouble. I change it by just removing the pin in the grip and lifting the trigger assembly out. Lot easier and faster than removing the second pin.

Chris that little LCP can be a little "snappy" so make sure your wife is ready for it.

I had an LC9 and got rid of it because of the trigger. currently carrying an XDS .45 but honestly liked the way the LC9 carried better (front right pocket carry for each). need to go check out the S

I carry the LCP. Not the raspberry one. Mine is the flat dark earth TALO edition. Anyways, for the way I dress and what not, I can't think of carrying anything larger. I'm shorts and tshirts 99% of the time. Anything larger or heavier just wouldn't conceal well on me.

I haven't found the gun to be a pain to shoot at the range contrary to what a lot of the internet says. Is it as soft as my full size 9mm? no, but it's nowhere close to my P-64 Makarov when it comes to causing pain.

I have heard really good things about the changes that were made with the LC9s, mainly with the trigger. The previous gen LC9 was notoriously horrible in the trigger department.
