I will tell you the LC9s is not a range gun. After several shots it stings. That being said - it's not designed to be a range gun. It's made for up close and personal defense. I can tell you, it will definitely get the job done should you need it. It has proven to be 100% reliable shooting virtually everything I can give it, including 1000's of 124g HP reloads. Feeds and extracts reliable every time. You cannot go wrong by purchasing an LC9s. Not be a long shot!
