Yeah that would apply to semis designed for CC. Period.... Even full sized will bite if you don't pay attention. But the smaller semis are a little worse. I wouldn't say the LC9 is any worse than any other semi that size chambered for 9mm.

BTW everybody keeps talking about it being hard to chamber. My mouse handed little bitty wife has no problem chambering a round when she grips the gun and slide properly.

I think it has to do with it being a small pistol for that size round/recoil and a grip that could be stickier. It wasn't on the first shot; I have wondered if the recoil shifted her grip.

Check out a Beretta Nano. It's a bit thinner than the shield overall. I don't think you get a slide bite from it due to its design. About $400 give or take.
