Did u get a free toaster with that? It would probably be more of an effective weapon if u just threw that gun at the 'bad guy'.

re: Picked up my new CC weapon today.


I caught a lot of flak for my silly comment and rightfully so. I guess I was a little harsh about the Ruger.

It's not a bad gun/purchase. It would not be my choice for CC, but I would not feel 'unarmed' with it.

Nice review here.

Price: $443

RATINGS (out of five)

Style * * * * *
Black goes with everything; Ruger’s house style gets even more suave and sophisticated.

Ergonomics * * * *
Slim fits, and the pinkie extension makes all the difference. Star withheld for overly aggressive checkering on the front of the grip.

Ergonomics Firing * * *
This is not the range toy you’re looking for. Still, not too punishing to practice. Highest quality ammo (e.g. Wilson Combat) helps reduce felt recoil.

Reliability * * * * *
Fired everything fed without complaint.

Customize this * * * * *
Crimson Trace makes a clever snout-mounted laser. What else do you need?

Overall Rating * * * * 1/2
Make the frame-mounted safety an option and we’re there.

My BIL has one and I've probably put 150-200 rounds through it in a few different range sessions. It is actually not too bad to shoot honestly. Of course I'm used to shooting a LCR.

Decent review you copied after a shite first post but this statement is dumb. Its a 9mm. Its almost no recoil and my wife can shoot it with one hand easily. Its a CC gun so the point is for it to be small with next to no sights. Damn fine little weapon and can be had for a lot less than 443.

Congrats on the purchase Lefty

I think my Kahr CM9 is the easiest subcompact single stack 9 to shoot that I've found. I've also shot a keltec PF9 and an m&p shield. The Kahr still has the least harsh recoil impulse.

I have one with the crimson trace laser. I also had the trigger redone by Galloway precision. I use a Crossbreed IWB. Extremely comfortable to carry.

I want to get a crimson trace for mine. Passed on the laser max because I didnt want to have to push a button if its ever needed in a tight situation. Where is the best place to get one?

I got my crimson trace off of ebay used. Had to replace the batteries, but other then that it's been fine.
