Hickok45 Reviews Some Rugers

I've been looking at some of Hickok45's YouTube video's and it is easy to understand why he has over 93,000 subscribers on YouTube. He is articulate, knowledgable, a great shot with a pistol, and he demonstrates good safety skills while he does his recordings. These videos are a good set to watch together, because they cover three of Ruger's  popular models for concealed carry; the LC9, SR9C, and LCP.

If you have been following this blog you know that Bea recently bought an LCP for her hideout gun. She looked at at lots of pistols, and her problem is not mentioned much on the gun blogs. She has a bad finger on her left hand, and doesn't have enough power in her grip to rack the slide on pistols larger than .380. She gets along fine with her Walther PK380, and also the LCP. We read some reviews on the LCP, and most of them mentioned snappy recoil. Mom doesn't have any problem with the recoil, so I think everyone can disregard that. She does have trouble pulling the double-action-only trigger more than twice without a brief rest. She found that she can switch hands and pull the trigger with her middle finger of her left hand, then switch back to her right hand. She has run several hundred rounds through her LCP now, with zero malfunctions. One of the best features about the LCP is that Mom can wear beltless trousers, and it doesn't pull her pants down.

Anyhow, you will have a good time watching Hickok45 shoot these Rugers, and gain some good knowledge if you are looking for a carry gun. Don't forget that Ruger has donated an SR9C for the raffle at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. You have to be there to win, so go sign up.
