Absolutley correct. Its not hard for almost anyone to find a gun that works for them now!!!!

[QUOTE I'll be curious to see how "pocketable" it is since the PF9 is my pocket carry BUG. [/QUOTE]
Ruger site says the gun is about 1 inch bigger than the LCP in both length and height. Looks like the LC9 is near exactly the same size as the PF9 if this info is correct.

Yeah, I guess I am too picky, especially with the pocket pistol concept. Stuffing a "duty" cartridge into the smallest, lightest platform still butts heads with the laws of physics in respect to recoil, muzzle flash overall shootability and durability. For now, I will stick with my J-frame and wait for the ammo guys to keep coming up with better loads. Lower recoil, lower flash, low cost and lethal as a true .357 magnum. See, I'm too damn picky!

Just hope that it doesn't have recall's like the SR9 and LCP
But in the end of the day for me it's a Ruger so it's gonna be a great gun!
I am intrigued if only because I was so impressed with the little LCP. Well built, decent trigger and reliable. If the new nine proves to be as good I'd have interest. I also worry about the recoil department though. The KT PF9 was not pleasant to me. Looks very similar but time will tell. Sig's coming out with the P290 (looks like a baby P250 to me) and rumor has it S&W is coming out with a single stack mini M&P as well.
Looks like 2011 will be the year of the pocket nines. 2010 was the year of the pocket 380's. I don't intend to be a beta tester this go around but it will be fun to see who rises to the top and who flops. My opinion the PM9 and Walther PPS are the 2 horses to beat. Rohrbaugh is in a class and price range by itself. Props to Ruger for trying and we'll see how the LC9 fares.
I too am interested, but I would like to see and hold the new SIG P-290.......
I am torn between the two.. (Might have to get both )
My LCP may be sad
Just saw two different email replies from Ruger on "+P question". According to what I read, they don't rate it for +P ammo. With extra weight, was hoping it was.
So has this been announced or not?
