      On some autos the way you hold it can make feed problems and failure to eject,think about you wrist and elbow and your grip.Lots of practise makes almost any gun feel better,but some guns just don't fit certain people.

      You are probably sticking your finger too far on to the trigger. Try no more than your first joint of your finger tip. You can unload the gun and practice dry firing. you don't need to go to the range to do this just make sure the gun is empty and practice away.
      You have completely lost me; and I've taught pistol shooting, now, for many years! I have no idea how this conclusion can be drawn from any of the OP's initial remarks? This said: Every woman I know who owns or carries an LC9, hates the trigger and has trouble shooting the gun - No exceptions!

      (And one of these women is a local gun dealer's wife whom I'm positive is soon going to be carrying something else!)

      i agree with you 100% holly! i had one and it was terrible and it is sold. what i did find in my case that my fingers were to long for the grip. if the back strap of the gun were longer or thicker the trigger is pretty decent. suggestion would be to try a sig p238

      my lcp has a long trigger and i didnt like it at first but got used to it , after all it has no safety , the long pull is the only safety and is good for concel carry .
      just my thoughts

      LC9 has a safety.

      I'm over it. I didn't like it, gave it away, looking for a new one.

      How about a nice .38 airweight with a full shroud? A major caliber, light weight and very reliable. Been around for 90 years so it is a proven design. Lifetime guarantee on the weapon from Smith & Wesson. Carries well in a pocket or on the belt.

      I have the 340PD (Scandium in .357). If you only plan on shooting .38s then the aluminum frames are much cheaper and not much heavier.

      Shoot one first. The recoil is significant, even with .38s.

      Or buy the stainless steel version. Heavier and handles the recoil much better.

      Thanks for the recommendation, Packard, but I'm not a fan of revolvers.

      Shot the LC9 AND the LCP this last weekend looking for a conceal carry option my wife. I'm 6' 2" with slightly larger than average hands, and though both guns are tiny had no problems with the trigger. The misses had never fired a handgun before the lcP and at 5' tall she's fairly dainty (hence why looking at such small firearms). She likewise had no problems (besides the need for basic instruction on handguns). I'm at a loss as to how or why you physically couldn't pull the trigger. I'm not trying to poke fun or anything of the like but I was literally thinking of this thread while at the range and was giving it a lot of thought and absolutely cannot figure out why you wouldn't be able to.

      I do understand not liking the trigger however, the uptake is simply massive.

      After quite a bit of practice, I can pull the trigger, but not the way I would prefer. It's awkward and I feel out of control.

      two suggestions, both mentioned earlier, the sig P238 small veryyyyyyyyyy easy to shoot and very accurate. the only draw back is you carry it cocked and locked like a 45, but it does have a thumb safety like a 45.

      The other choice is the Kimber Solo, the trigger is very light, the size is almost identical to the LC9 and its accuracy is very good. Kimber has had some problems with them in the past but I think they have worked out most now and its worth taking a look at, I carry one every day and I like it enough to have retired my P238 to the safe.
