WANT: Ruger LC9
Ruger announces their new “LC9” compact polymer 9mm pistol. Six inches long, 0.90″ wide, and 4.5″ tall, the LC9 weighs 17.1 (w/unloaded magazine) and has a capacity of 7+1.
MSRP is $443.
This gun fits the feature set that I have been looking for in small frame auto for concealed carry. 9mm is a good round for this tool. Just a tad better than a .380.
Ruger quality construction leaves me very hopeful. I would be willing to bet that one of these will find its way into the gun safe. Maybe not today. They will fly off the shelves for a while, even though there has been issues, like the LCP did initially. I will wait a bit. But I think it's a buy.
--Damn my WANT list is getting long. I guess I will have to split it up into Primary, Secondary and Tertiary like my friend T-Bolt!
