lc9s first impression
#1
I picked this gun up last Saturday and just got a chance to take it to the range today for a short time today. I wanted to give a bit of feedback in case anyone is considering picking one up.

Initial impressions, I freaking love this gun.

I ran about 150-200 rounds through it today. I ran magazines of Remington FMJ, Remington hollowpoint, Federal, Lawman, and Blazerbrass through it without any problems.

The biggest difference between the lc9 and lc9s is the trigger. The lc9 is hammer fired, the lc9s is striker fired. The difference between the triggers was everything it was hyped to be for me. I found the lc9s to be much more accurate. With the lc9 I sometimes get into the habit of flinching a bit while firing because of the long trigger pull. I did not notice that at all today and most of my shots were on the pie plate.

The gun feels smoother while firing, looks nicer (it no longer has the chamber indicator that pops up, and feels good in my hand. Now that I've had a chance to fire it and get a feel for it, it is my new edc.
I was always okay with the lc9,(carried it for over two years) but can't say I loved it as a firearm. I can say that I already like the lc9s a lot better and see me carrying it for a long time.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

I have an LC9 too.....I liked the long trigger because at first I was afraid of it "going off" but I might have to consider a trade eventually.

Thanks. My EDC is an LCP, with which I have a decidedly love-hate relationship. (Love it when I carry it, hate it when I shoot it.)

Might just have to see if I tolerate this new LC9s in my pocket.

I just sold my LCP/CT setup at a loss because the thing drew blood (mine!) when I shot it. Wanted a Sig .380 but then had to put the money to grownup responsibilities instead of new toys, lol, so now I'm just left with my LC9.

Elsie Pea has never hurt me while shooting her (other than the recoil being like a ball peen hammer blow). But she did manage to glom onto the pad of my thumb while racking the slide. I had the ignominious pleasure of being there on the firing line, a loaded .380 dangling from my palm, and no obvious way to open the action to get free. While, of course, simultaneously trying to keep it pointed in a safe direction. That would have been a good one for YouTube if it hadn't hurt like a sonofabitch.

I sold my LC9 because it hurt my hand so much.

Nice to know Ruger came out with an alternative.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
