I like my LC9 except for the trigger pull. Having an all-season pocket gun is just convenient. I just ordered a spring kit that will cut the pull by 40% and reduce the tension 1.5-2 lbs. $25 with shipping from M*carbo. Great reviews on the kit. We'll see how it turns out.

I used mcarbo kits on a bunch of savage rifles for the family, and like the result a lot.

I'd like to get a review on your lc9 trigger kit when you're done.   Wife and 2 kids carry lc9s.

I can't speak for that particular trigger kit but I can attest to the fact a good aftermarket trigger kit makes a world of difference in these striker fired pistols.  I put one in my Gen4 G17 awhile back and it made a world of difference in fact it was the difference between keeping it and selling it.

I put the APEX kit in first and it helped but not as much as I would have liked so I then installed a ZEV Competition Spring Kit and the combination of the two made for a much better than factory trigger out of my G17 and I no longer bitch about how much I hate the trigger in Glocks.  :chuckle:   

Like em, love em, or hate em, one thing is for certain, Glocks are extremely easy to work on and just about anyone can install a trigger kit and new springs in these things.  I don't recall what it cost but IMO it was money well spent.

Start cheap with a 3.5# disconnect and a 25 cent trigger job.


Then go from there.

Not worried about a firearms warranty, especially not a Glock warranty.  It's not like you are attempting to create 1911 out of a Glock or something.  Polishing a few surfaces and adding a Glock 3.5# disconnector is not exactly rocket surgery.  It is simpler than cleaning and reassembly of a Ruger pre-MKIV.

I bounce back and forth between the 2, g19 and desert eagle 1911 in 45. Depends on the task, the 1911 is the pretty girl she gets treated right and loved. The glock.....at 2am a mouth is a mouth am I right? Slap it around and don't feel bad at all. Harley you show off to your friends and scooter you ride to work, the wife and the mistress, each has there place 😁

Yes p80 basic build for reliability Minus match grade barrel. 1911 is full custom build with all the goodies since the colors matched, may as well have matching match grade barrels in both. Glock may end up with a trigger some day but she runs very well so happy with it for now

Wow, look at all those responses! You guys rock.

I met with my friend the other day and we reviewed a bunch of your thoughts. He was super appreciative for the support.

A list of carry options covered by everyone so far include:
  - Glock 17
  - Glock 19
  - Glock 20
  - Glock 26
  - Glock 27
  - Glock 29
  - Glock 43X
  - Springfield XDS
  - Sig Sauer P365
  - Sig Sauer P365XL Romero Zero
  - SIG P320 compact in 9mm
  - Desert Eagle in 45
  - Kahr PM9
  - Ruger LC9
  - Ruger LCP 380
  - Ruger LCR 38
  - Ruger LCR 357
  - Ruger American 45

  - S&W Model 60 in 38/357
  - S&W Bodyguard in 380
  - Kimber K6S
  - FN 5.7x28mm

Serious Contenders  :chuckle:
  - Ruger super redhawk 9" 454 casull w/2/7 burris
  -  M4 with 3 extra mags

The guy who's trying to decide what to purchase has a TON of options, but like most of you said, it comes down to preference.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

I have several handguns that I carry. Daily is usually and lcp. Iíve done some after market mods and painted the sights, itís not perfect but itís light and compact. I also carry a s&w aireight quite a bit and itís a great carry gun as well perfect for pocket carry. But if I could only have one itíd be my smith 60-15, itís pretty compact and plenty accurate. My wife has the lcr 3Ē and n .38+p that she loves and itís a great gun as well lighter than my smith but bulkier. I think the Kimber would be a good choice as well or a Ruger sp101

If you need 3 extra mags just buy a drum. The new ones work really well I hear. :chuckle:

The drums are kind of bulky

Trying to be practical here guys

He's made a decision...

What's your guess?  :dunno:
