I passed on a sale on a new lc9 for $300 because I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. I know that's a great price, it might have been a mistake, but I think I should find one to rent before I buy. I did with my M&P9c, and I'm very pleased.
Possible choices for different uses include:
I've shot the 26 and the sp101 really well, loved them both. But for summer carry, I'm considering the CW9 and LC9, and I haven't been able to find any to rent.
Has anyone ever passed on a great deal because you haven't had a chance to shoot it?
