I am enjoying my new Ruger LC9, which is good considering I had to wait nearly two months to get one, and then about three weeks before I could shoot it. I took it to the range Saturday for the second time. There were some differences between the two visits.
My first experience with the gun was enjoyable, although I immediately noticed the long trigger pull, which took some getting used to. Being a smaller gun, it felt a little more snappy than my M&P 9c, but manageable.
Disassembly for cleaning was a little difficult. I had some trouble removing the take-down pin and putting it back in.
The second range visit was similar, but the trigger seemed to have smoothed out from the last time. I was able to get used to the trigger pull very easily and found the gun to be fun to shoot.
So far, I have put about 100 rounds downrange through this gun with no problems whatsoever. I used both FMJ and hollow points and it ate them all.
Disassembly for cleaning was much easier this time as well. That take-down pin just popped right out and I took the gun apart with no problems.
The gun was more accurate than I expected, with my 7 yard groups essentially the same as my larger 9c.I am quite happy with this little gun and will carry it regularly, when I get a second mag for it, which seems to be backordered.
Target from the second firing is shown below. I flinched a bit on two of the shots.
