By comparison the Glock 43 single stack handgun has a width of 1.06 inches.

It features a 3.12 inch alloy steel barrel. While various types of ammunition, particularly +P rounds can get the round to 290 foot pounds, hardly any can get the tiny caliber to supersonic speeds. Original LC9, no safety is needed.

Supersonic ammunition is indeed available in nine millimeter, although most types remain in the high subsonic range. The LC9s has an overall length of 6 inches with a height of 4.5 inches. Moving to the nine millimeter caliber however meant that the new LC9s would have to become larger and heavier to handle the bigger round. One of the lightest and most compact nine millimeter handguns is the Ruger LC9 pistol. In the late 2000s Sturm Ruger, one of the largest civilian firearm manufacturers in the United States, began pushing into the subcompact handgun market. Nine millimeter rounds typically generate muzzle energy in the mid-300 foot pounds range, up two twice as much energy as the .380 ACP round. Larger and more powerful than its predecessor the LCP, the LC9s is an excellent choice for those who want power in a discrete package. In response Ruger developed the LC9s as a means of getting the larger, faster nine millimeter Luger round into the LC platform.

The LCP was quickly followed by the Ruger lightweight compact revolver, or Ruger LCR, in 2010. The LC9s is one of the narrowest semi-automatic handguns out there, with a width of just 9/10ths of an inch. Supersonic ammunition is indeed available in nine millimeter, although most types remain in the high subsonic range.
