He put about 100 through his Ruger when his slide started locking back on rounds prior to the mag running dry. He pulled the slide back and let it go forward, but in another couple of rounds it would do the same thing. Does this mean there is a problem with the magazine or the pistol itself?
Shoot it some more, and REALLY be careful of your (his) grip.

Just a thought.

Thanks. I also thought about one of the three mags is not a Ruger mag. The spring was giving me some problems before I sold the gun to my son. If it is just happening when that mag is used, then it may be the culprit.

Thanks for the suggestion. I told him to watch his grip. We'll see the next time we go to shoot.

It is easy to end up with your thumb up against the slide stop. I've done it with mine (now keep the left thumb on the switch for the LaserMax laser and the right thumb overlapping the left hand)

Just bought my Ruger LC9s Pro February 2017. Took it to the range and ran into a few problems the fist 50 rounds. I had three or four failure to feeds, but more concerning is the failure to fire.

I started off with a full mag, loaded it, tap and tug to make sure it is properly seated. Rack the slide all the way back forcefully and release as not to ride the slide. Took aim and fired. On the third round I pulled the trigger all the way to the rear but nothing happens. The trigger has no tension. It felt like the trigger never reset. I check the chamber. There is a live round in the chamber as the gun had cycled properly. The chamber is closed and in battery. I pull the trigger a few more times for good measure but it does not fire.

I tap the mag and rack the slide ejecting the round and load the next. I pull the trigger and again it does not fire, the trigger is dead no tension.

This happens a few more times and I end up finishing another box of ammo with no idea what is wrong with the gun. Ill be sending it to Ruger for repair but I am a bit disappointed. From what I read it should be an easy fix but this would be a catastrophic failure in the field not a simple malfunction.

Dang...that's a new one on me. I hope you get it resolved straight away.
