I had to search it to see what it was. Seems like it is a LC9 tricked out a bit for better handling for concealed carry. I wonder if they did a little work on the trigger? That's about the only thing I heard wasn't real good about an LC9.
Were you wanting it for CC or just as an addition to your collection?
Concealed Carry, it is getting to hot to cover the big ones. When I went to Montana I wore a shoulder holster under a short sleeve button shirt and it hid the 9e, but when it is over 105 degrees I want less.
I had a KelTec PF9 which the LC9 is basically modeled after. The PF9 in a pocket holster did just barely fit into my front jeans pocket. I sold the gun a few years ago when the gun had a major flaw which KelTec did fix. I now have as my main carry an LCR 357 and it fits better in my pocket than the PF9 did. Weight wise the PF9 and the LCR are both about the same weight as I recall. I basically went with the LCR because I didn't want a semi auto and wanted a revolver for CC. Just my .02 experience and may not even be close to your evaluation once you get your LC9.
Most reviews I have read of the LC9 rated the gun as being a good quality gun for CC.
Is it an LC9 or LC9s? My original LC9 had the hammer, and the trigger was looooooooong and heavy. It did smooth out to become easier to control after about 250 rounds or so. I traded it for a 9s. I like the 9s trigger much better.
I picked up the NRALC9 yesterday, although the trigger is long it is smooth. This could be because this is a used not new gun. Bought a second mag, $40 dollars out the door, ouch. Will try to get pics and a range report this weekend.
Went to the range, trigger was long but smooth. Shots were at 10 yards off hand. Something never addressed in other reviews was the ejected cases flew 10 yards behind and to the right. All these shots were on the center target.
Well, after having taken this gun to the range three times now, time to update. This gun will put all rounds in three inches at ten yards all day long. In the pocket carry however is rubbing the paint off at the contact points. Having said all that I think for an up close and personal gun it fills the bill. The LC9s trigger I think I will reverse my opinion on. A light short trigger would be nice if shooting for long periods. But that isn't what this was made for.
Pocket rockets remind me of what a high end sports car salesman said about a sports car. It wasn't made for comfort, it was made for handling great and going fast. Pocket rockets weren't made for comfort either. They serve their purpose.
What kind of pocket holster are you using? I wouldn't expect the finish to be rubbing off so soon. I agree about the trigger, it's manageable. I went to the LC9s because I could get the 2nd and 3rd shot off faster and more accurately. But the LC9 was almost exactly like shooting a DA revolver to me. Not a real problem.
