Ruger LC9 and LC9s (9mm)
Ruger’s original LC9 was a very popular handgun with all the features needed in a ‘mommy’ gun. However many reviewers and male gun owners did not like the long Double Action trigger (a mommy +) so Ruger redesigned the gun with an easier to pull trigger (a mommy -). We recommend the original LC9 over the LC9s. Some people also complained that the the safety was too small so make sure you can operate it.
“The LC9 also has features that many want on a defensive pistol. The slide locks back when the magazine runs empty. The LC9 also has a manual thumb safety on the left side for right-handed shooters. The LC9 has a butter-smooth trigger pull, and the action of the slide partially cocks the hammer, resulting in an excellent trigger pull for a pocket pistol. In addition, the LC9 wears a real set of easy-to-see drift-adjustable steel sights dovetailed into the slide.
Ruger LC9s – The only real complaint that I have ever received about that pistol is that some shooters do not like the long trigger pull. While the resistance was not excessively heavy on the LC9, some shooters had a problem with the length of the trigger stroke, as well as the reset. Having large hands, it never bothered me any, but with the new striker-fired LC9s, Ruger has dramatically improved the trigger on this latest pistol.”
