    If they can get a bunch of them out in a hurry, with no engineering defects popping up, I think it will be a winner. A lot of folks will buy them because they are $150 cheaper than a Kahr or a Walther PPS, without being a Taurus. If the trigger is halfway decent, I will buy one, eventually, instead of the PF-9.

    [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!

    Can't wait! Called my local gun store about 10 min after "release" (Jay's Sporting goods) and guy didn't know anything of it, he called his buyer and called me back I'm #1 on their list! I have a bigger hand, like my LCP ok, so I know I'm gonna love tihs one!

    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.
