Unboxing the Ruger LC9 by Robert Farago | Mar 11, 2011 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email IT’S AN LC9. Not “LCR.” I guess I picked the wrong day to stop doing meth. Anyway, I’ve uploaded a couple of pics of the Ruger LC9 in hand after the jump. Full review to follow. comments Ryan Finn says: March 11, 2011 at 10:32 So jealous. Can’t wait to see how she handles. Reply Chris Dumm says: March 11, 2011 at 13:11 Aaack! Another useless (and potentially dangerous) ‘safety’ on a deep-concealment pistol. Thank heavens that mine doesn’t have one. Reply Patrick Carrube says: March 11, 2011 at 13:30 I was thinking “aaaaack, ANOTHER Ruger!” Reply Rabbi says: March 11, 2011 at 16:58 Yupper…That safety is definitely useless and dangerous. Makes the entire gun useless for its intended purpose just likes its bigger brethren. Semi’s with safeties aren’t all bad, but semi’s with bad safeties are. Frame safety locky thingies are not just without value, they are more garbage to break. Reply John Fritz says: March 11, 2011 at 13:40 Good video! And I learned that I have been mispronouncing your name all this time. Emphasis on the second syllable. Reply Ralph says: March 11, 2011 at 17:12 Never bring a gun to an unboxing match. Reply Esteve says: March 11, 2011 at 17:55 Is Ruger working their way through the Kel Tec line up one gun at a time? Reply Chris Dumm says: March 11, 2011 at 22:16 I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a Ruger Red Label bullpup. Reply TTACer says: March 11, 2011 at 20:22 It looks bigger in the pics than it does in the video (that’s what she said). Reply Robert Farago says: March 11, 2011 at 20:32 I’ve uploaded some videos for the review. Click here for the “guntruth” YouTube channel. The Ruger SR9’s safety will come up again (so to speak) in the review. Meanwhile, click here for the Ruger rep’s explanation. Reply mikeb302000 says: March 13, 2011 at 05:36 Thanks Robert, I really enjoy your videos. Is it common practice for them to include a spent cartridge? Is that really to show that the gun has been test fired? Reply Christopher says: March 13, 2011 at 23:13 Have a hard time buying a Keltec clone, prefer the original. Held a LC9 the other day and just didn’t like the feel of it. As a sidenote:The LCP is slicker in the grip than the P3AT and just didn’t do anything for me. Reply Ross says: March 19, 2011 at 13:02 I heard a report that the LC9 was shooting 4 inch groups at 10 feet not too impressive if you ask me. Is this gun an accurate shooter? Was it the fault of the shooter or the pistol? Reply Robert Farago says: March 19, 2011 at 13:22 Shooter. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBwHzBund-E And: http://thetruthaboutguns.com/2011/03/robert-farago/gun-review-ruger-lc9/. Shot it again last night. Combat accuracy is fine. Getting better groups requires plenty of practice with the trigger. Reply Anon says: March 20, 2011 at 00:35 Panties are sure in a twist over the safety of this fine gun. Don’t like it? Simple. Don’t use it. Or better yet, don’t buy it – more for me 😉 I’m not going to throw the baby out with the bathwater over a very basic safety mechanism. Reply Anon says: March 20, 2011 at 00:38 Nice Rollie – Datejust? “Trousers”? Did that really roll off your lips? Trousers? 😉 Reply Rob Drummond says: May 2, 2011 at 12:03 Why does everyone get so upset about a safety. Like what was said before, if you don’t like it don’t use it. If you don’t like Ruger don’t buy it. Rob Drummond Hillsboro, NH Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
