Ruger LC9 to replace my LCP, anyone know how to improve the long trigger pull?
Finger exercises? Being a hammer fired, double action pistol (much like your LCP), I doubt there is much you can do about that.

If anybody figures out how to improve the trigger pull on the LC9 please post it. Not a bad carry pistol, but the trigger has a little to be desired. I am also a HUGE 1911 guy and I shouldn't try to compare, but if I am not mistaken I think it about a day or so to pull the damn thing. Not saying it has a long pull or anything , but it sure seems like it. (Sorry for the little humor)

kerstingm, you'll never get any true DA trigger anywhere close to a good SA system like the 1911. That said, the additional travel does make the pistol quite a bit safer for stressful situations, as well as while carrying chambered without a safety engaged (which, IIRC, it does come equipped with). You just have to remember what the intended purpose is (it'll never be a target pistol), and train to make the most of it.

I know and agree with everything you are saying. The main thing is it is all about making it as safe as possible. I was just throwing a little fun in it has has to be the longest trigger pull I own, but at the end of the day I still really like the products Ruger puts out.

I agree, from what I can tell (I don't own one, but I have a mite bit of trigger time with one) it seems like a nice pistol, very similar to miss Elsie Pea. I just wish it was DA/SA (for the reason you mentioned)...in which case I'd likely pick one up. Hope your's serves you well.

Please help me, I need intervention. In November I bought an AR10, a SIG 1911 C3 .45, and an STI Trojan 1911 9mm.

Today I bought a Kimber 1911 CDP II .45.

How do you like the Solo? I am really considering one as soon as I can find one on the shelf. I love my other Kimbers some of the best Pistols I own.

I bought two S&W Sigma pistols in 9mm. I had several guns loaded and chambered in the house and I decided to standardize on the Sigmas. Both have laser sights and a spare, loaded magazine next to each one.

This one followed me home. Got it for concealed carry. It is really growing on me. I was looking at the Ruger LC9, but just hate that trigger. This one is a little bigger, but the trigger is so much better.

S&W M&P 9C

I really hate the white warning about how it can fire with the mag removed. Duh, is a gun... Wish there was an easy way to remove that.
