    My apologies if this has been covered

    I got one of those malfunctioning lcp2 380’s

    Soooo. I was kinda thinking about an ec9

    I like that it’s smaller than the single stack Glock, and the price, but I don’t want a repeat of my lcp2

    Any suggestions?

    I have the EC9s (bought it about a month ago), and so far, so good. I've got about 200 rounds through it w/ a mix of cheap range ammo on up, and not a single issue.

    I have both. I had to send the LCP2 back to Ruger twice but it was worth the wait because it runs like a champ now. I bought the EC9 for the 9mm ammo since it’s cheaper to buy and practice. Both have been flawless at the range. I still prefer the smaller and light LCP2 for CC but do carry the EC9 concealed in an IWB holster or a winter coat pocket.

    The EC9s is one of the best kept secrets in the gun world. I paid just north of $200 and it included the FFL charge. It's a soft shooter that allows me's to shoot it one handed and from the weak side as well. I don't shoot two handed. It will be two years in the summer I've own it and around 300 + rounds through it of various ammo, no hiccups at all. A little tricky take down but it will grow on you, especially for the price. :)

    It carry's nice in my front pocket and I like having that safety on it because I don't use a holster.

    I like the .380 caliber but every gun I had chambered for it was a jamomactic of which the Glock 42 was the worst. ___ But 9mm will get it done.

    I won't trust an auto-loading pistol until it goes at least 500 rounds without any failures of any kind.
    Takes far less than a month to find out if it's going to make the grade...

    The LCP2 kept having stovepipe and FTF and FTE issues. Ruger put in a heavier spring and metal rod and it hasn’t had an issue since.

    I just put a Galloway stainless rod and 13lb outer spring in my 380 LCP II. I'll report out when I get to shoot it. Until then I'm carrying sig elite perf FMJ.
