    So I recently picked up this gun for my wife, I want her to carry this gun also. Anyone got one of these or shot one? I have only put a few rounds thru it and when I was shooting it (temp. about 20 degrees) the laser would go out after the first shot? I picked this up brand new from a dealer at a gun show back in December. I havent changed the batteries in the laser so Im thinking that should be done. Just wondering if anyone else had this issue?

    Other than that this is a fun gun. I carried it a few day and it was nice being able to put this gun in your pocket. It does have a long trigger pull but Im sure once you put 200-400 round thru it you would get use to the trigger.I was worried about taking it apart to clean for the first time after seeing it had a key...Used to my Glock so any tool need to take the gun apart is to many tools. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. Over all I would recomend this gun to anyone looking for a nice carry gun or just to add to the collection.

    Nice gun

    My cousin bought his wife one of those for her protection (she's an excellent shot, by the way, and has her own CCW). He let me try it for a few rounds. Lotta fun!

    I bought one, and my laser started changing from a sharp dot to a fuzzy diagonal line and back to a sharp dot after I put a few rounds through it. I contacted LaserMax, and they sent me a new laser in the mail. I returned the defective one. I was pleased.

    I carry the same model daily. I only use my laser every now and again during practice to see if its still somewhat accurate. I have had 0 issues with my laser so far. I love mine, only complaint would be the trigger pull, but as you stated it's very easy to get used to.

    Hope you can get yours fixed.

    I've got an LC9 just like that, with the Lasermax laser. It's my EDC gun, and I really like it. Haven't had any problems with the laser so far. I'd try changing batteries like you said, and if that doesn't work, contact Lasermax.

    And as far as that really long trigger pull, you do get used to it after shooting the gun for a while.

    My Bride & I each have LC9 ours do not have the laser I got mine as an everyday carry ... My Glock G19 is not a comfortable EDC. I really like the LC9 except the LOOONG trigger but like was said the more you shoot it the less of an issue that would be & if I "NEED" it the long pull will be the last thing on my mind !!

    Heres a trick I found when shooting at the range. If you are trying to get accuracy, watch the hammer in the "channel" as you pull the trigger. Just as the hammer reaches the point where it is below the frame and slide connection point, the gun is ready to fire. It works with the LCP and the similar Kel-Tecs. I dont have a better way to describe that, maybe to say, where slide meets the frame, anyway, that seam, or line. Actually, you are staging the trigger, just like staging a Double Action revolver, when trying to achieve the best accuracy.

    Is the laser accurate? I have an LC9 wo the laser. Been thinking about adding but am reluctant since I'll have to change out at least 3 holsters if I do.

    It's proven accurate for me! My LC9 is my EDC, as well, and I got a Cleveland's Holster custom made for it (with laser) for only $69+$7 S/H. Very satisfied! BTW, I also have a G21C and love it too!

    Thanks for the input. What kind of target distances would you estimate that the laser is accurate up to?

    I had that problem with my LC9 fixed it by taking it apart and cleaning the battery contacts and it has worked fine ever since. I hope this helps.

    Laser

    I had the same problem with my LC-9 bought a very good leather custom fit holster and then decided I wanted to buy a laser and not a holster. I bought the Laserlyte side mounted laser very good and no BS warranty. When I first got it the batteries where going dead while it was in the safe. One call and they sent me a new one a card full of extra batteries and a return postage paid box and the best part it was a lot cheaper than the lasermax.

    I've only shot it at the range with my target at 15-20 yards. I calibrated it at 15 yards with the understanding that my red dot will be higher than where my shot will go out farther than that. In that event, I'll aim high with the laser or just use my sights.

    My LaserMax retails for $129, but it was only $50 extra on my LC9 when I bought it factory-mounted. I bought the gun first and then the holster to fit it. Cleveland's offers holsters for many guns that come with factory-installed lasers, and mine fits perfectly.

    I already had my gun and holster so I wasn't about to buy another holster, and lets face it a laser is only a feel good item on a gun your going to carry for personnel deffense on average encounter of 5' t0 15' at most.
