New carry candidate

Ruger LC9s Nice compact size for comfortable carry assignment. Trigger is SWEET. No live fire yet, but I think this is the one. I was worried it was too small in my hands, but was fine with the magazine. Anyone have one? Now to thin the herd to bankroll this....

I like the sr9c over the lc series. But my g19 takes the cake for a compact carry .

I just shot one new years day as my sister in law got one for xmas
Also shot my brothers stainless kahr 9mm that day which is heavy but nice. Until it blew up in my hand. Thankful i wasnt left with a stub after that but its a story for another time
I am not a big fan of rugers. Just dont like the feel of them in my hand
It is light and not too bad recoil wise

I carry a g23 ( same size as andy's g19 but in .40sw instead of 9mm

In my opinion the ultimate carry gun if u can find one is a keltec in 9mm...if u can find one. They r very simiar to this ruger

If I were to go with another Sig it would be the 938.

That is real nice
I'm sure you will enjoy owning it and using it

Never got the Ruger.

Looking to get a Sig P365 in 9mm. My P226 is too big to carry anymore. Throws my hip out of alignment.

Will be looking for IWB holster... Any thoughts? Slip, did you say your brother made them?

The wife got me two IWB from him, One fits my G19/G17, thither is for my G26 I built all three Glocks this year

My buddy has that Ruger, not sure if all of the triggers are the same, but his trigger is factory stock, and a hair trigger. Scary light...

Ross, I've shot a couple of LC9's. Feels good and shoots well. Nice cc, nice price point. Was considering smallish gun for cc, but the more I shoot my 1911 the more I love it and feel ultra secure with it.

Ross, I had you pegged for a wheel gun guy, LOL. The LC9 are decent, BUT if you plan on shooting it a lot then you should get something else. My buddy said his had problems after he put 1500 rds through it? He's like a kid rapid firing it like it was a cap gun. He's worn out a lot of stuff, but he is retired and had too much time on his hands when he first got his first gen LC9 quite a few years back.
