Howdy all!
I finally got my Ruger PC9 carbine, and have shot it several times. I just love it!

I have already purchased a few accesories; Uncle Mike's Clip Holder (for stock), a sling, and 2 extra clips. I intend to also get a Holographic red dot sight, either two or three times magnification.

I wanted to know if you had any suggestions for it, as I intend to use it for home defense/plinking.

Also, for my Holographic sight, should I get no magnification, times two, or times three?

Thanks again all!

By clip, you mean magazine right?

Edit: I would get the magnification. Otherwise, if the situation warrents no need for magnification, wouldn't the stock sights serve their purpose? (Ghost Ring right?)

just remember, the PC9 uses Ruger's scope rings that can only attach in one place. I doubt you'd be able to get a reddot or holo sight that'll work with 'em. So you'll probably need to get a picatinny rail put on somewhere...

I got a 30mm reddot sight for my PC4. Get a Ruger or knock off a Ruger specific 30mm scope mount (CTD has them). I wish I can afford a digital camera right now, but I'll try and barrow one tomorrow. Oh yeah, the holo sight won't work unless you tap the top of the receiver and mount a rail to it.
