LC9s trade ?

We bought my son a one for his 21st Bday last year and I don't believe he could hit a barn wall from the inside with it. He is wicked accurate with his single six and can hit golf balls @ 25 feet with a Jframe in 38 spl in SA.
He had seen the Ruger at a gun show and I noticed he kept going back to that gun and checking it out, so thats why we got it for him. (its in the cool brown / earth color). I cannot explain his poor performance with the gun, for myself it is very accurate no issues at all but its only had 3/4 boxes run thru it.
He really likes the JFrame and seems to be a natural with it , his Bday is in a couple of weeks and am thinking of getting a JFrame and trading him for the Ruger.
I have had guns before that I did not shoot well and someone else would drill the target with them, go figure.
He is not living at home with college and job so range time is limited for now.
Any comments?

The trigger on the J Frame is way different than the LC9s. He probably just needs more time to get used to it. But everyone is different.

The difference is in the trigger. Single action triggers are easier to be accurate with than the longer pull of a double action or striker fired guns. I was a long time revolver shooter and had the habit of using the two thumbs down, weaver hold if you will on my more recent semi autos. I then tried and I'm still working on the thumbs forward grip on my autos and I can see a real difference in my accuracy. Another thing I've discovered is to not completely let off the trigger or to start taking up the trigger immediately after recoil. Makes for a shorter trigger travel, I think they call it riding the reset?

It's the trigger. I had to really "learn" mine. For some reason I was pulling it low. Shot it on a rest, and it was right on. Just keep at it, he'll get it.

Some guns need more ammo to break them in. Give it another 100-200 rounds of decent ammo and cleanings and see what happens. It's also a great opportunity to practice the fundamentals. My original LC9 was the same way when I first got it. It seemed like after 250-300 rounds the groups got significantly tighter for me.

Or I finally got used to the gun.

Thanks everybody,
Its just the time, he is good with the revolver and I think kinda fell out of love LC9s and maybe one day when he gets time maybe give it another try.
To be honest I would feel better if both my boys carried a revolver for their first carry. The oldest applied for a weapons permit today.
Will rotate the Ruger between my wife and I in our EDC line up , we both enjoy shooting it.
Darn another trip to the LGS.
