I have an LC9S Pro on layway, but before I take it home I have a few questions regarding internal safeties. Does the LC9S Pro have a drop and firing pin safety or does it only have the integrated trigger safety?

All three safeties on LC9s and LC9s pro. The original LC9s (non-pro model) also has a thumb safety and magazine disconnect.

By all three safety's do you mean
1. Drop safety
2. Sear Pin Safety (blocker)
3. And of course the very obvious integrated trigger safety

Hi,
From my Ruger LC9s Pro Instruction Manual "There is a striker blocker [that might be both #1 and #2 above] and a passive trigger safety, but there are are no additional safety devices". Of course lest I forget in my old age we also have our brain and trigger finger. I love my Pro model and waited to buy until it was out for sale because of the lack of other safeties since it is my CCW, and heaven forbid that I have to draw it, I only want to worry about aiming and firing, not external safeties. Many will argue the point and all may be correct if that works for them. For me, even training a lot, I can only imagine and hope I react as I train to the adrenaline and stress of the moment.
Hope you find that your LC9s Pro is as great as mine is.
Cheers...

Well Jeeze, I stand corrected. Pulled this up from the Ruger sight. Of course, the Pro model doesn't have the thumb safety or mag disconnect (as I mentioned before):

"Safety Features
Safety features include integrated trigger safety, manual safety, internal striker blocker, magazine disconnect, inert magazine (model 3235 only) for safe disassembly and a visual inspection port that allows for visual confirmation of a loaded or empty chamber ."

Still doesn't change my opinion of the pistol - as I love mine.
