Have a glock 20 with nice tritium sites and a laser and can hit what I aim at most of the time.........the lc9 is so-so after 500 rounds......my lcp even with the laser is worse still. They're not easy guns to shoot well so I make up for it and practice as much as I can

Glad it ain't just me. I do fine with most DA, but just couldn't make it work (though I only put about 60 rounds through it). I think it's the combination of short barrel, light weight, and long pull. I'll figure it out.

Hard to tell from that angle but maybe a Russian 7.62X54?

It's in the article. "The rifle used in the second robbery appears to be one of the many models of Russian Military Mosin Nagant, bolt action high, powered rifle."

Looks like a M38 or maybe a M44.

If it were a 91/30 it'd be sticking out the back of the cashier's head already.

If he ever fires that thing in that configuration, I imagine it will mess him up as bad or worse than his target. Them Mosins kick quite a bit.

if theres any justice, he'll completely miss the cashier and puncture his eyeball on the cocking handle when the thing jumps out of his hands.

I guess it depends on your definition of quality. The older guns had steel receivers that were forged, I believe.The newer guns' receivers are made of some sort of cast alloy that is very difficult to blue by traditional methods. It does not seem to affect reliability, but the guns are not as attractive, IMHO..

Thanks for clarifying that for me. Great chart. As I've said before journalists always add (with great emphasis) automatic.

So you were surprised that compact CCW type weapons don't shoot as well or as easily as duty sized weapons?

You won't find anyone who will argue that an LC9 will ever shoot as well as a 19.

I will argue, however, that the LC9 is as easy to hit with as any other weapon in its class.

Expectations of a firearm should be based on its class and size. If the LC9 (after plenty of practice) doesn't live up to expectations, then simply decide that the 19 is the smallest weapon you are willing to carry and dress accordingly. There are lots of people who won't carry anything smaller than duty size. Heck, there is a fair # of people who refuse to carry anything other than a 1911 in 45acp.

If you think the LC9 is tough to hit with, just try an LCP...

Consensus on the MN boards is an M38 (no bayonet mount).

I got nothing to add, except yes. Oh, wait, I also carry a Ruger Blackhawk with 6.5" barrel :)
