I wish Ruger would make a double-stack (think 10-12 rounds) LC9s. I have the Security-9 and LC9s pistols and the slide on the Security-9 is much wider and bulkier than the slide on the LC9s. I wonder why Ruger made the slide so much wider than the LC9s. I owned a Bersa Thunder+ which was a Bersa Thunder slide on a double-stack 15-round frame. It can be done. It would give Sig P365 a run for the money. Just wishing.

Well the closest thing to a double stack LC9 is a Keltec P11 which is the original design stolen by Ruger. My P11 holds 12 rounds and is only slightly wider than and LC9. It carries the same as my LC9, though it is double action.

But I agree, a LC9 sized striker fired double stack would be a hot seller IMO.

Why not just get a Glock 26? Double stack would unavoidably be thicker than the single stack LC9s. If I was willing to carry that think a handgun, I would go with the Glock. Simple, totally reliable, reasonably priced. For myself, I'll stick with the LC9s as my EDC, although sometimes I carry my SR40c just for the change.

I don't have it anymore but I had one of the Kel-Tecs mac 66 posted about. It was an accurate little pistol & worked. You might look at one of them or the Sccy clone if you want something inexpensive. They are not striker fired though, they use a shrouded hammer & the Kel-Tec has a long, heavy trigger.

I guess I'm contrary... I've switched to single stack and really like the feel... I figure if 8 won't do for me then that's why I carry a spare magazine and get training every year on how to do an emergency reload in less than 2.5 seconds. Sig P239:

I too like the single stack on my LC9. I did however add a sleeve to my grip to "beef" it up a bit. I like the narrow profile of single stack, my LW commander is also single stack. A second magazine will likely take care of the crumbs left behind.

The Taurus G2C is essentially a double stack, 12 shot, striker fired pistol the same size as a LC9s. It gets good reviews and is inexpensive (under $200) in many cases.

I had a PT 111 G2 which I think is pretty much like a G2C except I believe the G2C doesn't have the internal lock. The one I had had a weak finish. I believe a stainless version can be had for not much more. I kept a light coat of wax on the one I had to keep it from rusting. I didn't really mind the bluing wearing. My only major dislike about the gun was the trigger. It breaks a long way back. It is a nice carryable firearm that works for less than $200 though. The Grip of these is about the same length as a G-19 grip. The slide is roughly the same length as a G-26.

Ruger just came out with the Security 9 Compact that pretty much fits that bill. Doubt they will make a double stack LC9s as well.

I truly believe that 7+1 will get me out of any jam that I end up in. I think the LC9s is about as perfect a concealed carry gun as can be made.

It is quite a bit wider than the LC9s. I have a Security 9 and like it a lot, but I like the narrow LC9s for carry. In my original post I was only wishing for a double-stack LC9s. Grins.

How many rounds do you plan on needing?

The engineered width of the single-stack LC9 and derivatives serves a distinct purpose.

If you double stack the magazine it is going to be wider than a single stack. You can't have both.

Why not? Cowboys in the old Westerns had revolvers that never needed reloading!
