I am with you, I picked up the LC9 for a summer carry gun. I love mine. The loaded chamber indicator doesnt bug me a whole lot and I have had guns with mag disconnect safeties so I guess I am used to this feature. For anyone who is looking to get one of these, dont plan on getting a gun that is fun to shoot at the range all afternoon. This gun is made for a purpose and that is to be a small, light weight carry gun and it does that job perfectly.
