You will likely LOVE your EC9s. I have two LC9s, one LC9s pro, and an EC9s, and they all function perfectly. If you ever start holster shopping again, I can recommend looking at any of the OWB offerings from TTGunleather. I carry IWB and couldn't find an all leather IWB of decent quality from anywhere and then I discovered TT. I'm 5'8", 175 and my LC9s pro absolutely vanishes in my holster from TTGunleather. Everything that I ever carried before was in a Milt Sparks IWB (1911s, G19) but MS didn't make anything for the Ruger. The TT holster that I have is every bit as high quality as my MS stuff without the 4 month wait. I got my TT holster in about three weeks.

Those are beautiful holsters, especially that second one. Stunning. What's the leather? Probably out of my price range for a while, though.

My favorite OWB that I used with my LC9s was a Desantis Mini-Scabbard. On street, closer to $45.

Haven't decided on the chest holster yet, but have a couple of candidates, also on the lower end of the price scale.

That is the "Mike's Special" with brown elephant trim. $175 plus shipping if I recall.

I have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is, I got my EC9s today.

The bad news is, the safety sticks in the "off" position.

Read about the problem here.

Another 50 rounds today no problems. It is accurate too.

I might just have to try one of these. Quite a write up here.

600 flawless rounds thru mine. 90% Monarch steel 115g ammo wich runs on the hot side, 5% Sig brass 115g ball & 5% Hornady hst 124g jhp sd ammo. All cycle awsome. Its hard to beat the ec9 value. Sportsmans Guide had it this past we for 189$ new w/one mag shipped with a code.

i have the LC9s Pro, but it's the same gun apart from cosmetics and integral sights. I have put over 500 rnds through it, consisting of all manner of FMJ and JHP, including a few magazines of +P,
and quite a bit of garbage ammo, and it has run them flawlessly. The range of accessories is reasonably extensive, and Ruger's Customer Support is excellent.

Gladius, what's that extra grip accessory I see on your LC9Pro? Do you find that it increases grip stability, or is it mainly to accommodate larger hands?

Good Day,
Mine has that too, it's a magazine floor plate with an extension for bigger hands. I'm one of those that need the extra grip length.
Best,
Rob

It's a Garrison Grip Extension. It just replaces the standard base plate.

My hand size is fairly small, but I find I like the extra real estate. The main reason I went with Pachmayr over Hogue sleeves, was that I hate finger grooves on a pistol for the same reason. I find that if my grip is more natural, rather than bunched up, then it definitely gives me a more stable grip, and reduces felt recoil.

Just throwing it out there, but I have the really bad habit of buying almost every accessory and mod that comes out for my LC9s Pro, so if you want to know if something is worth getting (Magguts - Yes, Promag - No) I may have tried it. My next project is to TiN plate my barrel, and I still have not ruled out milling the slide for a micro red dot. I also installed both the Powder River Precision Trigger Kit, and the MCARBO Trigger Return Spring (Though installing both might not have been wise (less than 3.5lb. trigger)).

I've added a set of those Garrison Grips to my wish list on Amazon for further consideration, which already contains a set of the Hogue grips. Both together are not many $.

I've been a big Hogue fan for over a decade since I installed a set of their Monogrips on my SW Airweight 642 in .38 spl +p. That little gun kicked me like an angry mule with those little "pocket" grips. The Hogues tamed it, and made no difference to me in size -- I don't carry in trouser pockets. I'm planning to put a Hogue stock on my 1022 Compact when dollars allow.

I'll see how the EC9 treats me. So far, from just handling it in the studio (haven't fired it yet; still at Ruger for safety repair), it fits my very small hand well. But I'll see what happens with double taps and other rapid fire. May be more likely to add the Hogue wrap around grips first. But I'm glad to know about the Garrisons, also. I'll bet others here will also.
