    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 :)

    I did look at a Guncrfter 1911 with both a 50 and 45 barrel the other day.:deal

    Perfect CCW gun, at least in coat-wearing weather...

    i think this is why god created the glock 26.

    if you're comfortable with a g-19, and are happy with 9mm, but want something a little smaller, the g-26 is an obvious option.

    You could always go with the shot rounds. Just make sure the target is close enough.

    the Glock 26 is almost twice as thick as the Ruger. The Ruger is much easier to conceal if that's your goal.

    The Ruger is also cheaper if that plays a part in anyone's buying decisions.

    I'm a confirmed and an enthusiastic Glock owner, I really like them but one of the reasons I bought an LC9 when I compared it directly to a 26 was it's smaller/thinner size. I wouldn't expect it to be as accurate as a larger framed semi-auto pistol. Horses for courses and all that.

    Tend to agree with this, especially in the hotter months. The LC9 trigger pull will require range time to get acclimated, bit long.
