    The EC9s is a very good carry gun at a great price. My nephew carries one and is very happy with it.

    Yep--- I buy sell trade continually so I can experience owning and shooting many guns (since I'm not rich enough to keep them all)

    Just checked the log and I've bought 32 since June of 2019 and have traded about 1/3 of those away and gifted several to my adult children

    I love the buy sell trade aspect of shooting sports

    Don't like either one yet...


    Shot at 30' today - standing, two handed and one handed, no rest used

    Ruger EC9s 7+1 9mm
    Ruger LCPII 10+1 .22lr

    Observations

    EC9s
    - like: it fits in Shield holsters
    - like: it shoots at point of aim (important for a fixed sight gun)
    - dislike: you can't rack the slide with safety on (I didn't do my homework... Could have found that out before)
    - dislike: you can't ... And I mean can't, put the safety on with your shooting hand-thumb. It goes down (off) ok but not up
    - dislike: the reset is SOOO LONNNGG that I tried to shoot several times and hadn't reset the trigger (i'd be dead had I used this for SD)
    - I'm selling this ASAP
    - disappointed I didn't do my homework better on this $200 gun

    LCPII lite rack 10+1 .22lr

    - this also shot at point of aim
    - reset is ok and a good trigger
    - I like this little guy
    - however... I got about one failure to feed from every mag-full I shot
    - plus I had more light strikes than I've ever had on other .22s
    - I won't be trying a different brand of ammo... I have no tolerance for finicky guns
    - I'll take it out a few more times to see if she'll straighten out ... Else I'll be 0 for 2 on these cheap little guns

    My other Rugers operate just fine
    - full size SR1911 .45
    - commander size lightweight SR1911 9mm
    - SR22 .22lr
    - MKIII 22/45 lite .22lr
    - Wrangler SA .22lr

    Thanks for the range report. I also find the EC9S and LC9S difficult to train with, but both are good shooters if that is all one can afford. Appreciate your honest review of the lcp2 22, I am still ruminating on if I want to try one out.

    Nice set of Rugers ! Those look really nice. Can't wait for your range report !

    1. Can't work the slide on a 1911 with the safety on, either.
    2. Shoot it like a DA revolver and don't worry about "reset."

    I paid $175.00 for mine OTD at a pawn shop. Hogue Handall, 3 magazines (one 7 round/two 9 round), and a DeSantis holster bought on line.

    I'm carrying this now because my back and hips don't like the pressure exerted by my Model 65-1 or even my Model 12-2.
