Yup! That you did, and it's an excellent depiction of what REALLY happens. Maybe something in Braille would've been more appropo?LOL! I mean, I even provided you with a pretty animated GIF illustrating the issue...and you're still too much of a dim bulb to figure it out.
HAHAHAHA Might want to be careful of who you take advice from.The +1 idea comes from a point of view from a police officer who is not comfortable in the potential likelihood of a malfunction because the rounds in the mag are jammed tight against that chambered round because the mag was only design to hold a certain amount without that +1 in the chamber.
It wasn't advice it was an observation made by him, I picked up on it and gave it some thought and arrived at the same conclusion. And again it goes back to if anything can break it will and in the case of guns that weak link is indeed the mag.be careful of who you take advice from
You might have given it something, but "thought" certainly wasn't it. Had you given the matter any thought at all...or had even the slightest inkling how a semiauto pistol functions...the fact that it's physically impossible for any round in the magazine to come into contact with a "chambered round"...as the latter is not located next to the top of the magazine, and is surrounded by the thick steel wall of the chamber...would have made the mind-numbing stupidity of your...I picked up on it and gave it some thought
The highlighted and in red words are part of one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever read off the inter-web. WOW! How in the hell can that even happen?The +1 idea comes from a point of view from a police officer who is not comfortable in the potential likelihood of a malfunction, because the rounds in the mag are jammed tight against that chambered round because the mag was only design to hold a certain amount without that +1 in the chamber.
Is the goal of that practice to prevent the rounds in the magazine from being "jammed tight" against the round in the chamber? If not, then what is the basis for it?I don't know about youse guys but I like to carry mine -1.
Learn something **NEW** every day. Seems like a bit of a "quirky" procedure though. Wonder if that advertising firm got any more work from HK?Ah, the classics. But tier 1 operators know that you're supposed to insert the rounds facing the opposite direction every other reload so that you evenly distribute wear on the magazine spring...duh!
Just gave mine to my grandson for Christmas. Really nice for CC and a pleasure to shoot. After shooting my other pistols and going back to it, I had problems getting used to the long travel and reset. Also got tired of the low capacity magazines. Still an excellent gun though and would recommend it for CC. Guess I just "outgrew" it.Just purchased a new LC9s and got some range time with it this morning. These are my impressions.
Takedown. It is what it is. You get used to the push pin thing. I'm just afraid of losing it. (note to self: get a spare).
I picked up a couple boxes of Federal RTP 115gr and a box of Browning BPT 147gr just to try it out. The Federal feed, fired, ejected flawlessly. I gave up on the Browning BPT. After 25 rounds I had 5 FTE. That's more than I've had in all my firearms combined the past 10 years.
The grips seem pretty good and did their job. My only problem was my right thumb seemed to naturally fall right where the safety was. I ended up perching my thumb on top of the safety and got used to it. With the extended plate it seemed to point naturally and was fairly comfortable.
The white dot sights are very visible in daylight. However it was very overcast today and a little difficult to pick up. Putting some HiViz on my shopping list.
The trigger is about as good as it gets out of the box. Smooth take up and crisp break. I would prefer a little shorter reset but I'm more used to a 3.5# trigger on an AR. Overall it's damn good.
The recoil is what I would expect from a compact 9mm. 100 rounds in a little over an hour didn't bother me. It always seemed to fall back on target because of the natural grip angle.
The first few groups hit low. Not sure if it was me or the sight. I adjusted and it was fine. 10 yard groups were in the 3ish inch range. For the first time out with cheap ammo in the dark I'll gladly take that.
In hindsight I would consider the Pro version with no safety. My reasoning was it's use could be optional but thumb placement turned out to be the issue. Hi Viz sights are recommended. They don't cost more when you buy the gun, but they will cost me more to add them. Get a speed loader. Single stack mags are a PITA to load.
Would I still buy? No doubt. No buyer's remorse here
I don't carry +1. The way I see it I'm not in a current combat zone or engaged in an ongoing gun fight. Even as a current law enforcement officer I chose to not carry +1 when I'm not on duty. When on duty, hell yes I load and chamber a duty round then holster. But that's when on duty with a duty firearm inside of a duty holster and it is still not +1. It is condition one, loaded and chambered.I don't know about youse guys but I like to carry mine -1.
