LC9 Extractor Failure

Newbie here and not a conspirator ... like most that have had a problem with anything these days, we search the internet to see if anyone else has had this problem and how did they resolve it.

I bought my Ruger LC9 in Feb 2012 for home/self defense and have probably shot 150-200 rounds thru it since then when I noticed that it quit ejecting and would jam every shot fired. However, I hadn't cleaned it so I thought it may be dirty or I had bought some new ammo and thought that maybe it could be the problem. The new ammo I bought was Blazer Brass 115 grain full metal jacket. I cleaned the gun and tried to again shoot it this past weekend and it jammed after the first shot. I am not a firearms expert and was shooting with a buddy who said "let me see that" and I handed it to him. He immediately said, "no wonder, your extractor is missing"! I had no idea, but after he pointed it out, I realized he was correct. I searched the web over this past weekend and found this old thread.

Although there seems to be a few doubters on here, it seems that there are several people who have had this same problem. Using their advice I called Ruger this morning and talked to their service dept. The guy seemed a little short with me; however, he sent me a UPS return label via e-mail with instructions to send from a UPS Service Center and stated that it would take 7-10 days to repair it.

I am disappointed that it broke, but it seems that Ruger is willing to make it right and that is what matters most to me when anything that I own breaks. I have attached a few pictures to support the claim and show the hole from the missing extractor.
