    Ruger LC9

    Anybody own or shoot one of these dandy lil pistols? I like 9 mils. Saw some good online reviews. That lip on the clip enables you to place all fingers on the grip. The gun has a nice feel, but the shop did not allow a test drive.

    I own an LCP. Good little gun, very very light. Not the best thing for fun at the range, but good in the back jersey pocket on a late night ride out in the country.

    So what do you want to do with it? CC? Or just a cheap plinking gun?

    They want almost four clam for it. Prolly need an extra clip or two. Just always wanted a small gun. But a quality one, not the saturday night special variety. It weighs in at less than half of my Beretta 9MM. I do like the concealability if I ever need it.

    Good question. If your going to CC look into a Glock 26 (9mm) or the Glock 27 (.40 cal).

    The sub-compact Glocks are REALLY thick. (26/27/33)

    Glock are GREAT guns, but for deep concealment, they are far too blocky and thick.

    small frame revolvers & Kahrs are great as well

    Alright, I just about fell out of my chair. You own a Ruger revolver?

    Almost all of my rifles are Rugers. 77MKII in .300 Win Mag, 77MKIITGT in .220 Swift, Ruger Mini 30 ranch rifle, and a tricked out 10/22. I really like them all and will get a .25-06 in a MKII once I finish building up my ARs. It will probably be a 77MKIITGT if they still make it.

    To the OP. I have not tried out any of Ruger's handguns, but their rifles and shotguns have been nothing short of reliable and very good for the money. Plus, they are made in the US.

    With that said, I have a HK 9mm USP Compact and I really like that handgun. I've been thinking about getting one in .40 S&W, but I still need to finish the ARs. Don't know if that gun is small enough for a jersey back pocket though and it costs a good amount more than 4 clams.

    I have the G-27 and S&W 442 for CC. The G-27 get big and cumbersome at times and the 442 is sometimes too much just to go out for a quick ride. The LCP comes highly recommend since it's so small and light.

    From what I've heard, the KelTec PF9 is every bit as good as the Ruger LC9, lighter, cheaper, and, well, the original - because the LC9 is a PF9 clone, just like the LCP. I think the LCP was an improvement over the Keltec PT380, but this might not be.

    If you're looking for a serious concealable weapon, take a look at the Springfield XD. Two clip options to control the length of the grip and number of rounds. Reliable too.

    Cool

    kel tec p32 w/cor-bons, sw442 w/+p+.

    kel tec is easier to carry in a jersey pocket or elsewhere while riding. either one is going to make even a tight jersey sag.

    haven't played w/the ruger yet.
