Do you carry the LC9 or another Ruger?

Do not own the LC9. Reasons have to with lacks-da-mony, small size for my hands, limited ammo capability.
I DO have the “brick” p89dc. 10 to 15 rounds out of the box with larger magazines (@Zee, I know “reliability”) if desired. Goes bang, and not finicky about ammo choices (yet.) I may find one but so far so good. Built to mil standards not so bad, accurate at most self defense distances.
If the LC9 is this tough it would be a great concealable, dependable carry weapon.
My only complaint is the trigger was very stiff. That’s been years ago tho maybe they lightened it up.
I have a SR40 that I just love. I wouldn’t mind finding a SR9c or SR40c to replace my kahr CW40, not that it hasn’t been a great gun, just ready for a change, and I’ve been leaning toward Ruger
My EDC is a G3 G19 that I carry in a Crossbreed Super Tuck. However, sometimes that combo is not doable and I revert to my LC9 in appendix carry with a Tier 1 Axis Slim holster. The gun fires fine but does have a long trigger pull. I use an extended mag so my pinky has a home and aim slightly high and right to make up for my less-than-ideal trigger pull on the LC9. For me it really comes down to what, when and where as no combination is perfect for every situation. Have a great day and aim true!
@GrantCampbell, welcome to our place to chew the fat and discuss various issues and hardware.
Funny, I just realized I said “I aim slightly high and right” in my post, then closed with “aim true” I should read what I write before hitting that blue reply button…
@GrantCampbell sounds like that is your ‘aim true’ for that firearm. I’m good with that
@Joe I love my bricks glock G21 and G30, ruger p89. They do exactly what they need to, every time. That makes them Sexy Industrial Beasts in my eyes, every one of them.
I don’t currently own any Ruger handguns at the moment but have owned quite a few in the past and will add another couple of Ruger Revolvers probably sooner rather than later.
One thing I can say about them going all the way back to the early seventies is that a Ruger is like an Estwing Hammer, it will do exactly what it’s made to do every time. Their reliability is just amazing.
I’ve also owned a couple of dozen Ruger rifles over the years and several shotguns and that reliability runs throughout the whole line. The Ruger Mini 14/30 line of tactical rifles are among the best ever produced.
i had my lc9 for 9 years now never had a problem with it love it i carry two mag
@Zee was just referencing the statement you made about p89 mags that didn’t fit or had issues hence “reliability”.
Love my 89 and it is like Linus’s blanket, a welcome friend.
I love that analogy
@Robert_L welcome to the group! I think you’re going to find yourself in good company on the LC9
I own both the LCP and LCR 38 special. LCR is my fishing and yard work revolver with first 2 loads varmit loads followed by 3 defensive loads. The LCP carried when I cannot carry my Gen 5 Glock 19 for special places.
I have a Ruger P95 DC I have never fired that WILL be going with me on my next day trip to the range.
@DBrogue I have some mags that may fit your p95… they’re supposed to fit all p series, but they dont actually work in the p89. Might be I bought some mags for you…
My first experience with a ruger was in my early 20’s. A buddy had one and the magazine would fall out when shooting. I think it had a broken something-or-other. That stayed with me and I avoided them for a long while. Then, when I wanted a little wheel gun, I got an LCR. I no longer think bad thoughts when I think ruger. I traded my marlin 60 for a ruger 10/22.

As your example shows it’s also very hard to get over them.
I carry the LC9s and I absolutely love it!! It has shot every kind of bullet that I have fed through it without any problems at all, both new and remanufactured. It’s not a picky little pistol at all when it comes to ammo.
