Anyone own one? Are they finicky with certain ammo? Much appreciated fellas.
I got one a few weeks ago. After owning a Sig P250 I don't consider the LC9 trigger pull to be long. To me it feels just a bit shorter than a DA revolver, and I've been shooting them for years.

After having mine now for 18 months of just about everyday CC( with only a handful of exceptions) I can say a few things about this gun. If you have average to small hands but can handle the snappiness of a 9mm this size then this one is a winner ! Get at least two good holsters, and wear what's comfortable. Get as many extra mags as you can, and get at least two of the new 9 rd. extended ones. Try out different ball and SD ammo and find what yours likes best and stick with it. Get The Take Down Tool or a Ruger Gun tool.
Mine likes just about all Ball ammo(115gr. & 124gr.) but is a little picky regarding SD rounds. Anything lighter then 80 Gr. might not cycle the slide...
