My wife carries an LC9 and really likes it. She has shot approx. 350 rounds of various types of ammo without a hiccup. The sights are pretty good for a gun this size and I believe nite sites will be available for it fairly soon. It is a little snappy when shooting 124 grain Plus P Speer Gold Dots, but it is very manageable. Now, it is not a long range gun by no means. It is best at 8-12 yards max. It has good reliability, good ergonomics, and very easy to conceal. The only problem we've had was a front sight that would walk out of the dovetail on the slide. Otherwise, a very good EDC firearm.
Considering the consequences is never wasted time.
