A married couple,friends of mine just got their LTC’s so I went with them out gun shopping on Saturday. The LGS actually had several pistols and a few revolvers to choose from. Two being an M&P 9 compact and a few LC9S’s. She wanted something small in 9mm so when I spotted the Rugers I suggested one of those. I think I did ok for my recommendation. After handling it, I just thought it was better all around quality over the S&W. I can’t really say why, it just seemed better all around. After reading a bit, I see the trigger breaks way shorter than the M&P, and everyone always gets a trigger job with them so I think she will be better suited with the Ruger. I know I was jealous. I want one now. Her husband went for a Seecamp. I can’t say the Seecamp is a good choice for a first time buyer because of its idiosyncrasies, but he wanted it so I’ll help him with the ins and outs of it. So let’s hear your opinions of the LC9S. My brother has the LC9 hammer fired and he loves it. The striker fired S‘a trigger is supposed to be better according to Hickok.
