    Welcome to the forum. Before you change a lot and spend money see if you can find a place that has a number of rental guns and try them out for fit and function. Actual shooting is the best way to make sure you have what fits you best.

    Welcome from South Carolina... One weapon that hasn't been mentioned is the Taurus PT709 Slim... My wife shoots/carries this and loves it...Just another alternative to consider...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Kahr CM-9, Kimber Solo, Sig 938. all roughly the size of the LC-9, with better (shorter, smoother) triggers. more expensive, though.

    Welcome from NC!

    I am going to 2nd rstickle's comment that you try to find a range that lets you rent so that you can try them out before you buy. You may also find that as you gain more experience and your skill improves that things like the trigger on the LC9 (which is a common complaint) become less of an issue for you. For example, my wife tried a S&W 642 Airweight early on and it about took her hand off. Now, with a bit over a year under her belt, she can actually handle it fairly well and is accurate enough to be effective with it.

    Welcome from Wisconsin>

    I got used to the trigger on my LC9. It is a great carry gun. Yes your home gun will shoot better but will not conceal like the Ruger.
    Lots of talk on this forum about the LC9 trigger, safteys and upgrades. I just started taking mine out at the range and shooting it. You will get used to it. I hope you never have to use it.

    Welcome!

    The Smith & Wesson M&P compacts are very nice but if you want a slim piece of Tupperware, take a look at the Walther PPS or S&W M&P Shield. Both available in 9mm or.40sw

    I have to give high marks to the Bersa BP9CC in the budget category. Great shooter and uber concealable but there is always a trade off of some kind when you go cheap.

    Welcome from Oklahoma, soccer mom.

    Both the S&W Shield and Sig P938 have better triggers than the LC9. Or, just have a good gunsmith give that Elsie 9 a well-deserved trigger job.
