It is a nice little gun. I think most comments you get will be about the trigger pull, because it feels really long compared to my other Rugers. I wasnt fond of mine at first but got use to it after putting a bunch of rounds through it at the range. I would suggest trying one if she can before purchasing.

I own one and I really dislike it. I'm 6'1" and I have large hands. Its too small for me and its very snappy on the recoil. I bought a s&w shield and its a much better firearm all around in my opinion.

My wife carries one and she really enjoys it. The LC9 does have a long trigger, but nothing you can't get use to. I've shot it and I am actually pretty good with it.

I saw a chick get a NASTY slide bite from one of those lil buggers; make sure your mom gets the grip right.

I own a LC9 and I like it. I carry it when it is not too hot outside (then I carry a stainless steel S&W mod. 60 .357). I find the trigger pull on the LC9 much lighter than the S&W m. 60.

If your mother finds the LC9 hard to rack or the recoil is too stiff, consider the LC380.

Pros: price, size, capacity, ease of use, U.S. made

Cons: recoil, trigger pull, magazine safety feature

Have her work the slide a couple times before she buys one. If she can not work the slide without trouble then buy something else.
