Hey guys Im new here so I apologize if this has been talked about before...but what are the chances that Ruger will release something like a LC40? I have an SR40c and love it. My mom has a LC9 and I find it much easier to conceal hers. It would be amazing if they made that an LC40 or something like that, similar to the MP Shield. Any thoughts?

.40 ACP is a rotten round to put in a small gun. A .45 ACP round has lower recoil, and already appears in a number of competitor's guns. Plus, it's a cheaper round.



S&W's Shield is selling eight to one in 9mm. Might be a market indicator.

The recoil snap of the 40 is not an asset for the round in smaller guns. Also, the round is at it's max for pressure so further offerings for the 40 will be limited for defense. Of course some would buy it just because it was available but it would not "catch fire" like the LC9s and those that are coming after it currently.
