Ruger EC9S is an excellent choice for concealed carry - simple, basic, thin, smooth lines. Won't snag on your clothes as you draw it from your pocket or holster.

The trigger is nice, but it is long. However, I actually prefer a longer trigger. A longer trigger means I am less likely to shoot it accidentally. But it is not a heavy trigger, so I will have no problem pulling it if I have to shoot it for real.

It is a very reliable gun - the only thing I have found that won't shoot in it is some old Winchester 9mm that I had - it failed to eject as the slide went back. So I don't carry that ammo in the gun.

The safety was a bit too loose for my comfort, so I took it to a gunsmith. He installed a new retention spring. The safety is now perfect. Also, I put a spot of white paint on the front sight, to make it more visible. Finally, I purchased two additional magazines, for a total of three. At all times, two of my mags are fully loaded, and one is empty. I rotate the mags every few months to give the spring a chance to rest in each magazine.

I pocket carry this gun with a Sticky holster (model MD 1). The thinness of it means it slips easily out of my pocket. Yes, I know, single stack means not a lot of ammo. But it has 8 rounds when fully loaded, so that should do in all but the most severe of situations. Also, single stack means light weight. As the day progresses, a heavier gun can begin to wear on you. This one is so light when fully loaded that I hardly know it is there.

I also have a Beretta PX4 Storm Subcompact. Same dimensions as the Ruger EC9S, except that it is thicker (double-stack). As a result, it is not so easy to draw from my pocket when I carry it. As a result, I carry the Ruger all the time, and the Beretta is my extra gun.

You could tell that Sootch liked this gun as he was reviewing it. I really like this gun. It is small enough to carry 24/7, yet big enough to get the job done if you ever need to shoot for real. It fits perfectly in my hand.

I bought it for under $300, including tax. If you aren't sure which gun to get, I recommend this one, because at that price, you can't go wrong. It is probably available at your local Academy, Bass Pro, or Cabelas.
