I'm not sure what it was, thought I was going to like, but didn't. I like the rest of my Rugers(P-series, Single Seven, 22/45) just fine. so I went back to the LGS and traded the LC9 on a Glock 26. I doubt Ill ever become a Glock fanboy, but it appears to be a serviceable brick. LGS owner is still holding out hope that someday I'll buy a "big boy pistol" (medium to high end 1911). that could take a while.
