From day 1 mine has never had an issue with anything its been fed. I don't mind the long trigger pull but i have never shot/handled the "s" model so cant compare. I don't find the recoil to be snappy, shoot a lot of 124g LRN with 4.0g TG with it. I also like the roundness of the frame edges and its small enough for pocket carry but i prefer to appendix carry it in a blade tech holster. Take down for cleaning is straightforward, though does require a small punch to push out the pin.
The only problem we had was the followers in the Ruger brand magazines stuck every now and then. A little smoothing on both sides of the followers with 600 grit emery paper fixed that. No problems with maybe 300 rounds through each gun now.
The Mec-Gar magazines have been flawless.
I liked the LC9 but so did my step daughter so that was that.
If you don't know the difference between the LC9 and LC9s triggers, you need to check them both out.
I haven't tried a lot of different ammo, but has been 100% reliable with those I've tried.
Good ergos, lagging perhaps a tad behind the Shield but with a better trigger and much less weight.
I certainly haven't found a better single-stack 9mm.
I'm OK with my sights (I keep a SR9 on the night stand for after hours), but ditto on the extra mag. Ruger offers a 9 round mag which I recommend.
It also seems to find it's way into my day pack or back pack. Couple of spare mags and I'm good to go. A hybrid Kit gun.
