Ruger LC9 9mm – SHOT Show Media Day

Category : Handguns, Self Defense, SHOT Show 2011, Video

The Ruger LC9 is a great addition to Ruger’s handgun lineup. I own a .380 sub-compact but would rather run than shoot someone with it. I don’t buy into the story that a .380 is enough gun but think it might be better than nothing. The LC9 solves both the sub-compact easy to carry problem and the power issue, so I think it’s a great product. I thought that the recoil was quite manageable and not too uncomfortable. However, after watching the guy next to me shoot in the video I think it might have something to do with technique. Keep in mind that this gun is tiny. Great for carrying, hard to shoot with. I didn’t like the trigger as it was really, really long.  The gun I shot stuck 5 shots into something around an 1.5 inches at about 15 feet. It grouped good but didn’t shoot to the sights for me. As I understand it, the sights can be changed out for elevation.
