I recently got an LC9 also. The trigger drove me crazy--my finger slid so far along it as it pulled almost to the grip that I was shooting to the left every shot. So I got a Galloway Precision trigger bar and now I shoot straight and it's much faster. It's only a little less trigger pull but it makes a lot of difference. I decided not to pull the magazine safety out. I was in a situation once where someone (not me) thought they'd cleared the weapon by pulling the magazine out and then they pulled the trigger and found there was a round in the chamber. Indoors. In a steel and glass gas station office (before all gas stations were convenience stores). Scared the #%$! out of both of us and we were just lucky nobody was hurt and no glass was broken. Accidental discharges are no fun. I understand the philosophy of "it can get you killed" as applied to the magazine safety. But taking it out can get you killed too.

The person who did that needs some training before they hurt someone and shouldn't be carrying fire arms!!

Removing a magazine doesn't safe a gun and shouldn't. Why would anyone pull a gun drop the mag and pull the trigger...??? Stay away from people like that or get them proper gun handling training before they kill someone

Well, the event occurred 47 years ago and I was using it to illustrate how things can get out of hand before you can react, which is what happened. Just lucky nobody was hurt and no property was damaged. The story is kind of long and involved, so I won't get into it here, but it made an impression on me.

...........hmmm pinch / punch...........hmmm

They sell an "LC series Take down Tool" but I got the Ruger Gun Tool, which has the same # punch...

Even though he is holding the gun with both hands he would do just as well to shoot with one hand. He is holding 80% of the gun with his right hand. He cannot grasp the 80% off hand /20% strong hand grip. The result of his grip is any pistol he owns is nothing more than a belly buster.

He needs one or 2 of the Ext. Mags. Adds over an inch of extra Grip.....
