My PF9 shoots very low has poor sights .
Not going to disagree but please don't quote me and then say don't use the safeties if you don't want to. What makes your point invalid is some of the safeties are made to be functioning all the time. The lci sticks up...that's just what I want my assailant to know if my firearm is loaded or out of ammunition, if it gets snagged on something, or some other unforeseen problem...I understand this probably has not happened (yet) but its left out in the open to happen. Could have been better like on the LCP. The magazine disconnect...for a personal defense firearm that's a big no for a lot of people. These are on all the time and there is no accidentally activating them. With the internal locks, they are just another problem waiting to happen imo. S&W has these and had problems with them in the past. I have not heard of it happening to any LC9s yet. What is the chance of misplacing the key when its locked? Depends on the person but how many times have people lost their keys to their car?....or the remote to the tv? lol. This is something that's easily remedied if the key is left in the safe.
I find the PF9 sights just fine and perfect for concealed carry with the trigger pull better than the LC9. I will say the LC9 has a smoother finish and looks nicer than the PF9 but both shoot the same imo. I have had the PF9 for over 5 years and problem free, shoots great, a rugged looking tough little firearm with great customer service. Not going to say every PF9 is like mine or every LC9 or CM9 is going to be like mine either. There are some (from all manufactures) that have had small problems. PF9s can be found around the net and in my state they are at the gun stores...but I guess it all depends on where you live for the availability and people buying them up. They should sell faster now seeing that in the Fla incident one was used. Always happens...one i.e.: Az when the Glock 19 was used with a 33 round magazine, both were flying off the shelves...but we'll see. If you find the "bunch of crazy safety features" to your liking, well its speaks for itself. The LC9 is a good firearm from a very good company no doubt, but the LC9 a not for everyone and neither is the PF9. They are pretty much equal but in my book with the PF9 edging out just a bit. To each his own others will say different. The Kahr CM9 is also a very nice firearm to look at and should be considered if looking for a pocket/sub compact 9mm. Look to you tube for video reviews on these, may help in your looking.
