Went out with my LC9 for the first time today, shooting about 60 rds through it. Shot Independence ammo 115 gr. The Good: 1. No problems at all. Gun ran fine. Not nearly the recoil I expected based on the comments of others. 2. Spent casings ejected cleanly. This was a nice respite from my Gen 4 Glock 19, which sends about 1/3 of the rounds back at my head or shoulders. Out of the 60 rounds, not one hit me. The Not as Good: 1. I had one FTF on the 1st round chambered after inserting the mag. (Don't know if this techincally qualifies as a FTF since it was a matter of chambering the 1st round.) I chalked this up to a new mag/new gun. I ejected that round and the next one didn't feed as well so the mag may not have been fully seated to begin with. 2. The trigger and its long pull WILL definitely take some practice! I was using a 8" target at about 20 ft. I started off pretty well but, ironically, when I tried to focus on tighter groupings, the shots went left. The more I shot, the more it seemed the shots were drifting left about 6-8 inches and 2-4 inches off to the side of the 8" target. I had to leave before I could correct it. I am still a new shooter, only getting my first ever handgun 6 weeks ago so I probably just need more practice with this trigger pull, but I was definitely not nearly as accurate as with the Glock 19. However, with it being a carry gun, I am pretty confident I could use it defensively from an average range of 5-10 feet very effectively. If you have any advice, let me know. At least it will help me with trigger discipline. I didn't have a lot of time this morning, so I am looking forward to a lot more rounds to see if I can get comfortable with the trigger. Of course, if not, there is always the Galloway precision trigger upgrade I can try!
