I just bought the LC9 a couple weeks ago as my first handgun owned in over 20 years. I wanted something I could cc, and after reading tons of reviews, and looking at lots of options, the LC9 won out.
The trigger pull is long, but knowing that going in, it doesn't take long to get used to. A cheap and easy trigger fix is out there and probably in my near future.
Just had my first range session with it yesterday, and was very very happy with the performance. I put about 100 rounds down range at distances of 5-15 yards. For a compact ccw, the accuracy was impressive right out of the box. I think I had 2 rounds off paper at 15 yds(and that was shooter error). I was able to keep the groups inside 6"-8" without any adjustments. More than acceptable for the task it's designed for.
The gun does kick like a bigger calibre, but that's not really an issue once you know it's coming. With the mag extension and a Pachmyar slip on grip, it was super comfy an easy to handle.
Overall an excellent choice in its category. Definitely happy with it in my hands!
