I have the LCP but I'm also considering the LC9. Is the recoil like a normal 9mm or is it more like the LCP?
So... what you are saying is you are carrying a gun you have never fired? NEVER? Protecting your life, and possibly your family, with a gun you have never fired? Wow !I just got my Sig P938 which is similar in size to the LC9 but heaver because they use more metal. Have not fired it yet but will compare to the LC9 when I do go to the range. My Sig is now my primary carry gun.
I do NOT agree with that. Sig in a good gun but Ruger can keep up round for round. I have a friend that also has p938 nightmare, he and I both can shoot better with my LC9. Also the Ruger is a much nicer looking gun and I think the LC9 had less recoil.I like Ruger but they can not compare to Sig just like a Chevy can no compare to a Mercedes.
Wel I have both a Sig P 938 and an LC9. My Sig is the extreme edition that came with two magazines. I only use the 7 rounder. The snap of the Sig is far less then the snap of the LC9. As far as accuracy, my sig is far more accurate then my LC9 could ever hope to be. Not to mention that my sig is far more reliable as far as going Bang each and every time then my LC9 is.I do NOT agree with that. Sig in a good gun but Ruger can keep up round for round.

Sorry I also wouldn't carry a gun I have not shot a least a hundred rounds through.
I agree with rammerjammer's assessment. (Besides, being a Bama fan, I like to say, "rammerjammer.")I have an LCP, LC9 and LCR.
The LCP's recoil is much harsher and jumpier than the LC9. The LC9 has some recoil too it but I find it very manageable.
The LCP and LCR take more practice for me to master than the LC9, which though it has a long trigger pull didn't present me much of a learning curve.
