i have ruger lc9 it comes with no safety is this a good gun to coceal has very light trigger
Welcome to the family and god bless you. The Ruger LC9 is an excellent carry gun. You can easily conceal it, it’s light weight, and there are a lot of holsters available for it.
@Gene_A when you say light trigger. Do you mean the stock trigger feels light compared to other firearms you’ve used/tried? Or was it modified?
I have no personal experience with the handgun, I’m sure others will let you know their experiences.
I had an LC9s for a while and really liked it. The striker fired “s” model does have a very nice trigger. The LC9 is hammer fired and has a longer press. For a micro compact I really thought it was a nice package from an ergonomic standpoint. Like @Johnnyq60 said, there are plenty of holster options out there for it as well.
Welcome to the family Sir.
I have the Ruger ec9s and I love it. I know LC9 and EC9 are basically the same gun. Of course my is the “S”. It has a very nice trigger.
thanks everyone good to be here more than ever i have 30.6, 2 9s,12 gauge and ar thats about all i can handle if trouble comes knocking
I was once told that if you keep it simple and it will have less problems. With no safety if you pull it to shoot and forget to turn off the safety, well, you have no safety so your good. As for the trigger, you should only put your finger on the trigger when you have it pointed at what you intend to destroy. I see it as a win, win. A good gun and good training with practice, practice, practice it will be really good.
I agree with #todd30 completely. And with all the amazing thoughts of the community. You just need a good holster and always keep your finger away from the trigger and you will be good with that gun. It is a great carry gun and easy to conceal
happy bday there Todd sir!
Could someone recommend a good handgun for conceal carry? I am a 70 year old woman and my hand strength is not as good as it once was so it needs to be easy to shoot and aim. Thank you. I have trouble cocking it.ni had one that was very hard to pull back
Hello Gene and welcome to the community. I think you’ll find we all have different opinions on firearms and honestly all of it comes down to personal preference. Much like if you ask 100 people what the best vehicle was and your answers would range from muscle cars to trucks to SUVs to various manufacturers, so too will people’s view on firearms.
What I will say is it really comes down to what “feels” best to you. No one here knows how large/small your grip size is, grip strength, length of your fingers, etc…so we really can’t tell you what is “best”. What we can tell you is that if you’re looking to find the perfect pistol for YOU, head to your local gun ranges and try out various models they rent out and see which feels better to you. Try a few ranges and see if you can try out an assortment. Then head to a few gun stores and see what they have and see if it fits right. After all this, you’ll likely have a few choices you’ve narrowed it to and many of us can give you the pro’s and con’s we’ve experienced with those models so you can make an informed decision.
Welcome aboard @Sharon5. Check out the S&W E-Z models, maybe in a .380cal. I’ve heard good things about them from people on the forum with grip strength issues.
Hi Sharon5 and Welcome! You and I may have a minor problem in common, in these days and times, reluctance to go out and visit with others either due to the pandemic or our own reluctance to go and meet new people.
But if you’re inclined maybe a few trips out to the local gunshops might serve you well? At least two things might occur, you can see what’s currently on hand and testable, and see if you like the folks on the other side of the counters. The best of all worlds would be someone who’ll listen to your needs and then help you find an example or three of handguns that You like and think will work.
I’m thinking you may not have anyone in the family who could help right off and is part of the reason you’ve come here. That’s ok! We like meeting new people and sharing what we discover and learn for ourselves with others who ask! “Good Hunting!”
