I love mine its my edc unless I'm dressing up then its my p10. That being said I would caution you about firing it if its not in full battery a ruptured case can be quite exiting!

I like my LC9! Has anyone seen DETAILED assembly/reassembly instructions? I can't see enough detail in the Youtube videos that I've seen and Ruger's website only has field strip directions...
Thanks!

Now for all the safety overkill. The round in the chamber indicator is kind of hokey but tolerable, the thumb safety is really not necessary with that long trigger pull, it won't fire with a dropped mag, and what's up with that stupid little key lock? She's been California-ized.
You can file down the chamber indicator so it doesn't protrude as much. Also a gun smith (or you if you know what you are doing) can deactivate the key lock and mag disconnect safety. Then if you don't use your thumb safety it will be just as safe as any dao revolver.

I wouldn't have bought the gun if all that stuff bothered me that bad. I am just saying that it is safety overkill. I don't engage the thumb safety and threw the key away within minutes of opening the box. The chamber indicator is actually starting to grow on me.

When it should look like this..

Attachment 72558

Which it still fires the rounds off but still I know it's shouldn't be doing this. Should I be concerned or should I continue with the break in period ???
Mine did this too. The chambered round indicator was catching on the rim of the case. I just used a little sandpaper and rounded it off a little. Worked great after that. Its a great little gun and other than that it never gave me any trouble. I did end up selling mine to my dad tho. I just never could get used to that long trigger.

Took some time, but did get the hang of the trigger pull. Just took my carry class so looking for a holster for mine.
