  • Ruger LC9

    Hey, I watched a You Tube video on the Ruger LC9 and it appears to be a pretty good 8 shot 9mm.

    I have heard, but am not able to confirm that you are not supposed to fire 9mm plus P out of it.

    Anybody know if this is true?

    I found this, which someone else copied from an LC9 owner's manual:

    Note on +P Ammunition: Although the RUGER® LC9TM is capable of
    functioning with 9mm +P ammunition, a steady diet of +P ammunition will
    shorten the endurance life of the RUGER® LC9TM. You should never shoot 9mm
    +P+ ammunition in your RUGER® LC9TM. There are no SAAMI or CIP pressure
    limits on 9mm +P+ and use of this ammunition could result in serious injury.



    Sounds like it is good to go for carry use, but I wouldn't use it at the range (Except to ensure the specific brand you will be carrying in it functions/chambers/ejects properly)

        The Kel-Tec 9 I picked up has the same warning...honestly after putting 200 rounds through it for breakin the other day...I wouldn't want to shoot +P rounds through it!
