Ruger placed the controls in easy to reach places and after several hundred dry fires, the trigger creep smoothes out to a beautiful, worn in finish.

Taking the gun apart is simple, requiring minimal tools. This can be accomplished by emptying the gun, pushing the takedown plate down, slightly pushing on the muzzle and driving the takedown pin out. Shooters have reported that the only ammunition the LC9 is not compatible with on the gun range RWS 124 grain FMJ ammunition.
Shooters also report that the weapon has excellent accuracy for its small mass and lightweight. Rapid shots continually stay on target, even shooting up to 25 feet. The low profile features three-dot sights, which are superior improvements over previous models. Both rear and front sights are able to drift-adjustment for windage and the rear sight can conveniently lock for additional stability.
A solid gun for Ruger, this gun is competitively priced with other subcompact guns within its field. Overall, concealed carry holders’ give this durable weapon two thumbs up.
