I don't have an LC9, but I've shot one.

Good gun. I worked one out a bit before I bought my S&W M&P Shield about 3 weeks ago. I liked the trigger on the Shield quite a bit more and it just performs like a bigger gun for me. But I would prefer either of them to the Kel-Tec PF9 (have one) or Kahr CW9 (have shot one).

For a sub-$500 micro 9mm, the S&W Shield and Ruger LC9 are #1 and #2 respectively, in my book. But I've yet to shoot the Kahr CM9. The Sig, Beretta, and Diamondback micro 9mms don't really interest me.

I've got one. Any specific questions? I like it, it did take a little getting used to for the double action only. But it is my everyday carry gun now.

The only other quirk is that after inserting a new mag you have to pull back slightly on the slide to rack it, kind of like my P64. I got used to the DAO and slide pretty quick. Shoots everything I put through it with no problems at all in 1000 +/- rounds. At 9/10 of an inch it conceals very easy and with 7+1 9mm has enough for any encounter that I think is likely (I also carry a spare mag). It only comes with one mag so you'll need to pick ip a 2nd one $35ish.

More thoughts... the LC9 has good 3 dot sights and a thumb safety.

Nice handgun. I have super sized hands and can shoot it pretty accurately to 25ft. As mentioned before you have to pull the slide to get it to feed after loading a mag. The version I have is the one that comes with the crimson trace laser grip. Once sighted it is dead on. It is small for my hands so it has a bit of a kick. I feel the trigger is a bit grainy when compared to my BG380 pistol. I find it a bit too big to be a pocket pistol but with the versacarry holster it is not too bad.
Anyways, excellent addition to a collection. I find it sophistiicated and with real sights as opposed to the sig models :-)

Been looking at them.

That particular handgun is VERY smooth which makes putting into and pulling it out of a holster VERY easy. What I mean is that it has practically no squared edges to snag. It's all very rounded and like aerodynamic?

Also, it's really light weight and compact so it's seems very easy and comfortable to conceal.

I saw a video where one of the better known review experts got one directly from Ruger and he was doing really good hitting 12 inch targets at over 50ft. I thought that was impressive for such a small gun although I'm sure many can do better if not as good.

Seems like an ideal CCW weapon if comfort and hide ability while still having considerable effectiveness are the goal.

I recently puchased a a Kahr CM9. I tried and considered the LC9. Very nice gun. The main reasons I chose the CM9 over the LC9 is primarily I like the Kahr trigger better and it was easier to draw if I pocket carry it as a BUG. I like the LC9 (and the Shield) but they just weren't the right guns for me.
