I agree - that's why I like my LCP and Kahr CW45 for pocket carry (the CW45 in a Remora for my jacket pocket, the LCP in a Desantis Nemesis for the pants pocket).

Me too. Thats why i bought it. Remember, its a cc gun. Not a target plinker. Longer trigger isnt an issue.

love the safety aspects of the lc9. Bought one for my daughter as well.

Heard lots of complaints about lc9 kick. It didn't seem bad at all to me.

in fact, my jr high aged nephews shot it and had zero issue with kick.

again, its a cc gun not a target gun.

i love it

Does it carry well for you? Comfortable? I'm leaning towards the LC9 at this point?

Yes, it is comfortable but I've never carried before now. Admittedly, the LC9 is my first hand gun. I don't see myself being a hip carrier. I've tried it and just don't see it as an option. I believe pocket carry is the way to go for me. For me, carrying on the hip is not comfortable and a bit cumbersome and the LC9 is just a bit too big for ME to use as a pocket carry. It fits but is just a bit larger than I'd like.

With that said, the LC9 is a great gun and I see no reason it wouldn't be comfortable for someone used to or planning to carry. Even for a pocket carry. It's just for me, my personal preference seems to be a pocket carry that is smaller. I'm willing to give up the stopping power of the 9mm vs a 380 as well as the ammo price for the comfort and more concealment

So at this point, I'm looking for another, smaller gun to be able to carry in the pocket. Either on a clip or on a wallet like holster.

If the Ruger LCP 380 had an external safety, I would go with that in a heart beat. I'm looking at the SW Bodyguard 380 right now. It's slightly larger than the LCP (not by much) but the safety is the big issue for me. I want a safety. I want a longer trigger pull. I NEVER want an accident or close call. The chances of me every having to use the gun are so slim that it is worth the extra safety measures to me. But, I want the security of being able to carry. Hope that makes sense.


Here is a nice comparison of the LCP and the Bodyguard.

I don't find the 3 o'clock position all that comfortable either. Have you ever tried the 4:30 position? That would be just above your back pocket on your right side ( provided you're right handed )..... Positioning the gun there is far more comfortable than on your hip inside the waistband.

Yes. Thats actually how I tried carrying. If I were to carry outside the pocket, that's how i would do it.

About ready to pull the trigger (har, har) on the sw bodyguard and the wallet holster from Talon. Looks awesome for a pocket holster. Also may get the pocket clip for times when i dont want a holster
