Ruger LC9S – The Perfect Striker Fire 9mm for Concealed Carry
Are you familiar with the Ruger LC9? That’s a great carry gun… but Ruger went and made it better.
That’s what Ruger does.
The biggest complaint about the Ruger LC9 was the trigger pull. That’s normal! The Ruger LC9 was made for concealed carry, and so a long trigger pull was acceptible.
But now, Ruger just came out with the Ruger LC9S – which is a striker fired trigger system. What a difference!
Ruger LC9S (Striker-fired) 9mm FAQs
Does the striker fired trigger vs. the double-action only trigger really make a difference?
Yes, it certainly does.
Some people want the standard LC9 because they want a longer trigger pull. When you’re carrying concealed, it’s easy to have an accident with the trigger – and it would definitely be easier to have an accident with the Ruger LC9S striker-fire trigger than it would be to have an accident with the standard Ruger LC9.
The advantage to the Ruger LC9S (striker-fired) is that you don’t have such a long, heavy trigger pull.
Do the safety benefits of the standard Ruger LC9 outweigh the benefits of the striker-fired LC9s?
That’s completely up to you. The Ruger LC9 is a great gun, and so is the Ruger LC9s.
What is the capacity of the Ruger LC9S?
The capacity of the Ruger LC9s and the Ruger LC9 is 7+1 rounds of 9mm. They both have the same capacity.
How easy is the Ruger LC9s to conceal?
The Ruger LC9 is only 6″ long from the back of the gun to the front, and it weights just under 17oz. It’s the perfect size and shape to conceal on your hip, in a shoulder holster, in a pocket, or in a purse.
It will also fit perfectly in ANY glove box or center console.
Does Florida Gun Supply’s online gun store recommend the Ruger LC9S?
Yes, we highly recommend both the Ruger LC9 and the Ruger LC9S as truly fantastic carry guns. These guns are on every top concealed carry gun list we’ve ever written.
How many magazines does the Ruger LC9S come with?
The Ruger LC9s only comes with one magazine.
Can I get a Ruger LC9 with a laser?
Absolutely. For the Ruger LC9s, you’ll need to buy an aftermarket laser – for now. But the Ruger LC9 comes with a couple of laser options: the Ruger LC9 with the Crimson Trace Laser, and the Ruger LC9 with the LaserMax laser.
