casualty178: great video, it;s nice to see these guns all on the same table, right next
to each other all at the same time and all with the same size hand. This
video totally proves not even gun/tool video has to be technical and full
of exact specs. Just the strait up visual comparison can be most helpful!
Keep 'em comin'!
preelenede: Good video, that LC9 is really nice. Hard choice between that and the LCP
J Myers: Thanks great vid lots of help
Robert Rice: I agree that 380 has adequate stopping power, but I have trouble with their
accuracy so I use LC9 or G23/27 for my CCW. It looked like the last
magazine you loaded in the SR9c had the slide drop inadvertently? It
appeared you started to rack the slide and realized it had already
dropped. Just curious if that was a malfunction. Also was there a failure
to feed in there? I enjoyed the video a lot though, thank you. Nice to see
them all together.
David Scott: This is one of the best comparison and range example videos I've seen on
Youtube for Ruger or any other gun line for that matter.
762x51n8o: @Tuttsr9 Great, glad you like it. I like mine. I haven't shot it in a month
or so, I need to get it back out. I've been busy with other stuff.
bryjon4: i have the lcp!!! i always say the same thing if someone makes fun of the
size ,its even smaller in person, "well... let me shoot you with it and
we'll see if its not got enough power" LOL. my buddy has the lc9 and he
loves it!! both guns are fun to shoot. the one thing i wish the lcp had
would be the slide lock (when the mag is empty). the lc9 has better
grouping but the lcp it nice too... so if anyone was wondering, both are
worth the money
762x51n8o: @TJK775 Thanks for the comment. It is a nice little pistol. I absolutely
love the small size. I've struggled with it just a little, too, my hands
are pretty big. I've had this new problem the last 2 times I've taken it to
the range -- not sure why, because my grip hasn't changed -- but when I
fire it, my hand is hitting the mag release. It's not coming all the way
out, but out enough that the next round is being picked up by the slide, so
there's no bang. I'm a little concerned.
drbarizona: Great video. Thanks! I own the Ruger SR9c and it is an awesome firearm. I
will probably get a LCP with a laser because it is easily concealed, a
powerful round, and there when you need it. I believe, if you carry, you
should carry all the time. A LCP is a gun you can carry all the time and it
will not be uncomfortable or inconvenient. A 380ACP will stop almost
anything with correct shot placement. My thought is any gun is much better
than NO gun!
AZFreedomParty: Great Video. One question. How much longer and or harder is the LC9 Vs LCP
trigger pull? As an LCP owner, I dont have a problem with the trigger, but
all I here is how bad the LC9 is. BTW, the LCP has made me a Ruger fan,
plus its made in my home state.
Cayce Balara: I appreciate this overview. Nice work.
762x51n8o: @469Shooter There's some really good self defense ammo out there nowadays,
that can make the .380 pretty potent. A .380 in the pocket is more deadly
than a .45 back at home in your safe.
TJK775: great video it was nice to see them all side by side... i girlfriend just
bought the LCP its a great lil gun and perfect for her but just a lil too
small in my hand the LC9 is def on my shopping list! TJK775
brotherskeepers111: Some great pistols and options, thanks for sharing
fastcarfastbike: the day i buy a ruger that only lasts 6000 rounds, is the day i stop buying
James A: The lcp is great for a Every day carry
762x51n8o: @FestivalJester haha, I love that term. Unfortunately I saw a lot of banana
hammocks when I was over in Europe. They were everywhere there was water. I
was saying, "Really? At Disneyland?" That ain't even right around all this
little kids, with all your junk out.
MisterFYF: This was just the video I was looking for. Buy the way the comment you made
about tucking the lcp in your banana hammock made me and the wife crack up
for a good 15 min!
S1lverwing: .... lol Marines....
762x51n8o: I shoot mine a lot. You shouldn't carry a gun that you don't shoot a lot,
you need to practice to breed familiarity.
aarikc17: The slide thickness between the sr9 and a glock 19 is the same. This is a
myth that the sr9 is slimmer. However, the sr9 does have a thinner grip.
nhprepper: @762x51n8o "FTE" is failure to eject.
762x51n8o: lol, I get a lot of people telling me that cracked them up. Thanks for the
feedback, glad you liked the video. Since you're a new sub -- stop by and
sign up for my free giveaway for a Bravo Concealment holster
762x51n8o: @nhprepper Sorry, I had never seen that acronym. I actually had to think
for a minute to remember what that was, after watching the video a couple
times, I remember. That wasn't an FTE, that was actually a bad round. It
had a dent in the primer, but it didn't fire. I actually meant to edit text
into the video to say that, but forgot.
762x51n8o: It's not much larger. I think about 1/2" length and 1/4" height (I forgot
what it is exactly). It is thicker, also. You won't have a hard time
concealing it though, you just have to have a good holster, and a proper
shirt, and you're fine.
762x51n8o: If you need something as small as possible, go with the LC9. If your setup
leaves room for a larger pistol, you should go with the SR9c. It's better
to shoot (better trigger, FAR less recoil) and holds almost twice as many
rounds in one mag. Or you can buy one, become addicted to Rugers like I
did, then save up and by the other one! lol
fastcarfastbike: i've narrowed my search for a good CW down to the LC9 (no laser) or the
SR9c.....just can't decide!!!! oh the agony! they both feel equally
comfortable in my hand... choices!
ViolentKisses87: @InspireImages If you have seen the LCP in person or the Kel tech
alternative they are tiny :D But the LC9 is really pretty small in its own
right but carry for a female would really depend on her personal clothing
choices unless its going to be a purse gun. All that said why not let her
Bdubb004: Nice video. You probably have already been asked this question, but which
of the four is your favorite overall?
puffulufogous: tuck a pistol into your banana hammock. lol good video man. I was looking
for some opinions on the sr9c vs the lc9 and came across your vid.
P_Nite_Nite: Between the SR9C and the LC9 which would you suggest more for concealed
getbo: SR9c vs the Lc9? Both are nice pistols but despite the Lc9's smaller size,
I don't find a difference in concealability. It's the grip that prints and
the grips are about the same length. I prefer the sweet trigger on the Sr9c
and the 3 additional rounds you get over the Lc9.
762x51n8o: Thanks for the input, I appreciate it. I agree -- they are both excellent
762x51n8o: Watch my video: "How To: Galloway Precision LC9 Trigger Kit"
DeeRugz4u: GREAT VID! Thanks
Chris Lee: hahaha... oh man, "anyone who says different, ask em if they wanna get
shot" damn that made me laugh to hard
762x51n8o: Crimson Trace
762x51n8o: @lamarama1 I've heard that too, about them. Mine feel pretty similar
though. They both break about the same and have the same pull.
762x51n8o: Thanks, I appreciate it!
onebigkahuna69: I've got both ends of these guns the LCP was my first and my daily carry
and my next was the SR9. I also just bought the SR22 and thats just one fun
gun too shoot and cheap to shoot.
762x51n8o: @golfusa12 No, I think it's a little big. You could carry it comfortably,
but the issue would be accessing it fluidly in a crisis. Can I ask, why do
you need a manual safety on a pocket pistol? A safety could potential snag
on your pocket.
Bert GUNBROS: TURN DOWN THE MUSIC!! but otherwise, great stuff man
TheRt2bear: i often tuck pistols in my banana hammock
backburnerart: any slide stop issues?i cant get mine to realease with my thumb even after
C Hall: I just got my CWP and wanted to get a gun that I can carry in my pocket. My
first choice was the 380 LCP but wanted something with a manual safety. Do
you think that the LC9 Is small enough to fit comfortably in the pants
David Kramer: Thanks for the reply. I bought an SR9c today (08-08-2012). I can't wait to
get to the range!
762x51n8o: @madmopper31 Crimson Trace.
762x51n8o: @backburnerart None at all. The LC9 was a little stiff at the beginning,
but no troubles now. If you have any issues contact ruger, they have the
best customer support, and will get you fixed up.
762x51n8o: @obend52 Not a lot different. The primary difference is it's a little
thicker, and I think the slide is maybe a 1/4" longer or something like
that. That's if you use the compact magazine for the SR9c.
