The LC9 is my first handgun and reading some of this makes me a little nervous. I've read so many positive reviews of the LC9 and picked mine up for 299 -- figured it was a no-brainer. Now I'm wondering if I made a big mistake, considering I'm not an experienced shooter.
I know that lots of practice is critical and I'm up for it but are there any tips for this longer trigger pull? Just be patient and get used to it?
Yikes. Now wondering if I should have picked up the LCR instead. LC9 buyer's remorse?!!
Wow ... first of all I did not run 1000 rounds through my LC9 before it behaved , it works just fine. I shot it because I enjoyed it. I shoot a lot of round through all my guns ..You may not understand getting to know your weapon . The LC9 is a very good carry weapon , if you know how to shoot it correctly.A carry gun does not need a 1+ inch long trigger pull. The Shield doesn't have a super long trigger pull and it was designed as a carry weapon.
The Sig P 238 and P 938 are both carry weapons and don't have super long trigger pulls.
Also just because it is a double action doesn't mean it has to have a long pull to it either and that has been proven with the Galloway mods to the trigger system.
A 1+ inch long trigger pull makes this weapon no more safe then a similar sized weapon with a 1/2 or shorter trigger pull.
Another thing is the mag disconnect. A weapon does not have to have a feature that dissables the trigger simply because there is no magazine install in the grip.
Further more, no weapon needs a blade ticking up on top of the rail just to tell a person the weapon is loaded. Each and every weapon should be treated as loaded until the chamber has been properly checked.
I bought the LC9 thinking it would be a nice carry weapon. After owning it for awhile, I have come to the conclusion that it is nothing more then a lawyered up POS mess. Also a person should not have to run a 1000 rounds through a weapon before it starts to behave. That gets spendy and takes time. Save your money and time and get something that doesn't need 100s to a 1000 rounds run through it before it starts to behave properly.
Glad you like it . I clean mine after each trip to the range .Just put 200 rounds through it and WOW what a fun little gun. Quite a bark! I had no accuracy issues (pretty good for a first-time shooter), no FTE or FTF. Flawless.
Felt solid and the trigger was smooth as could be. Long trigger doesn't bother me because I don't know better...
How often do I clean it? After each outing?
