    Sometimes you Blink ...

    ... and you miss all the hub-bub. It seems like Ruger has been releasing model-after-model of new CCW firearms, but without a lot of or just good information on differentiating them. What's the difference between an LCP and LC380? Looks like "1 round" to me. But are the rest of the parts common, a' la PPK,PPK/S and PP? Slides? Magazines? Is one the "improved" version of the other?

    LC9 and LC9s seem to have a different trigger, but any other differences? Again, what's common between all the models such as LC9/LC9s magazines? Slides? "New and improved"?

    The LC9 "s" variation is the new striker-fired (Glock-ish) pistol. No hammer, external OR internal.
    Spec sheet here: http://www.ruger.com/products/lc9s/specSheets/3235.html

    The LC380 is a slightly larger version of the LCP; actually a .380 version of the LC9.

    Longer frame not only gets you one more shot, but more frame length to grip and spread-out the recoil.

    I agree; it can be difficult to keep up with all the new stuff coming out nowadays.

    Adding to the new stuff theme the new Ruger 9E. Essentially a no frills version of the SR9 for about $100 less. I've got a few SR's and think this will be a winner. Dumps the loaded chamber indicator in favor of a port (win), regrettably retains the mag disconnect (although easily removed), has a slightly less refined slide, same lower receiver and comes with one magazine instead of two. Other than reducing the magazine count by one I actually view it as an improvement on an already decent design but time will tell. I thought $429 for an SR9 was excellent. $329 - $350 for a 9E is a ridiculous value. Not exactly ready to part with my brace of HK's just yet but I like what Ruger is doing.

    2 years ago I was going to buy 50K of Ruger stock but the broker talked me out of it.
    I shoulda fired him.

    Ruger is the worst for useable info on their website.

    Of course they wouldn't allow anything negative about their guns to be displayed,,,
    But trying to find out the most basic of things is almost impossible.

    If a pistol does not have a safety they don't state that,,
    They simply say nothing about a safety at all.

    It sucks and I have written them each time that I can't determine something about a detail,,,
    I just get the exact same canned response about their website being designed to be informative.

    It's bad strategy but what can one do?

    I think I understand what you're saying, but look at it from Ruger's point of view; with all the anti-gun groups looking for crap to quote to make gun owners/makers look bad, would YOU advertise that your new pistol "Doesn't have a safety!"? You and I know you mean a user-activated manual thumb safety, and that it probably has several internal automatically-activated safeties, but just advertising it as having "no safety" is probably not a good idea, either from a public relations or marketing standpoint.
