I know it was discontinued for the cheaper model now available.
thank you for your input
I only sold mine after buying my Sig 365. I do like the Sig better, but it's a $500 pistol vs the $200 Ruger.
I find the Shield superior in every way short of price as I like the firmer trigger of the Smith over the Ruger, but for what get i think the Shield is a better value.
Ruger LC9s Pro by Tallball posted Sep 5, 2019 at 8:13 PM
@Dan-On stated above I also did not like the grip. It was very acceptable but I would have preferred better ergonomics. I. Replaced it with a Walther PPS M2, which has fantastic ergonomics without being much larger than the Ruger. The L9s has aa great trigger, is highly reliable, and is backed by a company that has great customer service. When I bought my 380 I decided on the Ruger LCP2, because it was very affordable, and received excellent reviews, plus Ruger service. You will not go wrong with the LC9s.
She loves it.
not much larger.
I still have a LC9s Pro and it is a decent carry gun except, the slide is not very resistant to corrosion.
My Sig 365 made it obsolete. Higher capacity, smaller, much less snappy recoil, more ergonomic for me and I shoot it much better.
You already own a superior gun IMHO.
Utilitarian, reliable, nothing fancy about it at all.
The s model is supposed to have a better trigger, but the above descriptors still fit the s.
You'll basically be duplicating the Shield 9mm. If you’re looking for an inexpensive piece to put away as an emergency gun or truck gun while you EDC the Shield, this may be a good buy.
Had a Shield, absolutely hated the jointed trigger. Gave it to my Brother In-Law.
Had one, first small 9mm..hated it..malfunction city plus it wore a blister right where the back strap/beaver tail touched my thumb..Mine was $319..shot it twice, traded it for a Glock 42...
I had the original with the Long Trigger. Later the first LC9S. Shot them quite a bit. The LC9S never had a problem as far as reliability. Shot about 6.000 rds through it. I liked the gun, actually shot very similar to the Sig 365 as far as recoil and snappiness. Just could not go along with the Light trigger combined bang with any pressure on the wall for EDC. I used it as a range gun for years but would not carry it. Finally got rid of it when I started thinking that if someone got it if something happened to me down the road and how it would be a danger with that trigger for any one using it. I understand many like light triggers with a glass wall. Just not my thing.
The only only complaint was that their was not much room in the trigger guard.
I shot they gun side by side with other Micro's and the LC9S was much snappier and more muzzle flip. Otherwise it was a solid performer as far as reliability. Just my two cents.
