About the Handgun:
The LC9s is a striker-fired version of Ruger's hammer-fired LC9 compact pistol. It has all of the features of the LC9 minus the loaded chamber indicator, and features a striker-single-action trigger versus the original LC9 double-action only trigger.
About the Manufacturer:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is the leading independent producer of firearms in the United States. Sturm, Ruger designs, manufactures, and markets a full line of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, primarily for sporting purposes, but also for law enforcement and military agencies. Formed in 1949 by Alexander Sturm and Bill Ruger the company has had long and continued success, taking its place among the classic names of U.S. gunmakers.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
