What ammunition were you using?
Three or four different kinds. I know I was running reloads and a Remington FMJ. I'm not sure what the owner had. WWB maybe? I didn't shoot any defensive loads through it since I think I only had the ones in my Sig.

Nice try at sarcasm. Way to be a buzz kill about the op's purchase.

Interesting, do you know how old the pistol is?

I've heard of some issues with the earliest models but from what I've read, they seem to have gotten a handle on them.

I suppose I'll find out for myself inna couple of weeks when I bring it home.

FYI, my LC9 shoots mighty fine. Never a glitch, and shoots amazingly tight groups for something so small.

So I picked up the LC9 and as luck would have it while I was at the shop I spied a clean looking Glock 26 in the used case...

Now I can compare the two of them directly, well in another couple of weeks anyway. The Glock can't go thru the DROS system until 12/11 so I'll be picking it up in time to give myself a nice little Christmas present. It came with 2 mags, a nice little Kydex holster and one of those Glock mag loader thingies.

I heard that Ruger stock went up 15% post election. Good for you.
"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.

Indeed, Ruger stock is way up and they recently announced that they're going to issue a $4.50 per share dividend.

I'm buying a few more next week, shares that is, not pistols...

The Glock has come home for the holidays, picked it up yesterday. The shop was jumping and the shelves were almost bare, the Ruger Gunsite rifle I had my eye on is long gone.

Hoping to take the Glock to the range tomorrow, the LC9 is at a friends house getting fitted with a custom holster so I won't be able to do a direct comparison til the New Year.
