    the keltec is so light that real 9mm loads make it very hard to control, and the frame being pinned together, along with the extention mainspring, worry me a lot. I will have to look realy hard at the Ruger, The Taurus is a bit heavy, but I could live with it. The PM9 Kahr is quite nice, a used one is probably the best answer.

    I am astounded at how much focus people have on trigger pulls. When one is in a crisis, pumped with adrenalin, three times stronger than normal and frightened half to death, the trigger pull means nothing. Focus in your practice on the target, and putting rounds into it in the right places. When I practice shooting I do not practice target shooting. I imagine an opponent trying to kill me, and I focus on putting rounds into that opponent. I hype myself and I can shoot with any trigger at that point. Target shooting can be fun, and helpful in some ways; but it is almost the antithesis of self defense. Point shooting, shooting over the sights, or bringing the sights in line quickly are the important issues. Putting your rounds where they belong does not require a tuned and soft trigger. It requires focus on the target and drilling in panic mode.

    I got my LC9 early. I really love it. An excellent local gun shop in Tucson, Murphy's Gunsmithing, was able to get it as soon as it was available. It is compact enough to carry in my front pocket. It holds 7 rounds and it is reliable and accurate at self defense range. It point shoots very well; like an extension of the hand. I am not familiar with any potential competitors, but I have a confidence in Ruger that makes me comfortable; from experience. I recommend it without reservation.

    i don't know if Ruger is catching up, or what, but almost every dealer in the St Louis area has the LC9 in stock. One of the shops even told me that they are selling very few of them. i thought he was going to bash the gun, but rather he raved about it, and can't understand the slow sales. Average price in our area is $379. i think it may be one of my next toys.

    Got my LC9 last week and put 250 rnds through it without a proble and its accurate. I like this gun more than I thought I would.Its much better than the PF-9, I had one and sold it after the take down pin kept walking out(long story) and Ruger's customer service is leap and bounds over Taurus..(had one). Ruger did thier homework on this one....

    I agree to a point but would argue when the balloon goes up that is the most important time to have a good trigger. Mentally confidence inspiring and practically speaking one less thing that can go wrong as in jerking a heavy crap trigger. Agreed a good operator will make do with the tools they have at hand at the time but in a world of good options make mine a trigger I am comfortable with and have confidence in please. If a P3AT is all I had I'd make do but if the vastly superior (to me anyway) trigger of the LCP were an option make mine an LCP please. If the LC9 versus the PF9 follows the same evolutionary course then I'd want the LC9.

    I think with the heavy trigger pull the safety isnt a neccesity but so wat if its there? Nice to have but just dont use it if you dont like it. HG
