Any changes to the LC9 - near future?

This maybe a total NOOB question, but is Ruger planning on any upgrades or changes to the LC9 in the upcoming year (2013)? I'm notorious for buying something and then around the same time a new version comes out. I shot a LC9 yesterday for the first time and really liked it. I shot it well. I'm lefty
so I wish the LC9 was more lefty friendly (i.e - manual safety on both sides), etc

Take Care.

I also just purchased a LC9 and im i really like it! It shoots well and is very functional as my CCW but i hope they plan on making some chages to the trigger! Little stiff for my tastes

Im not sure just how they could do it but maybe Ruger plans on making the trigger SUCK even more on the LC9. Then again Ruger never ceases to amaze me.

After you shoot it for 1000 round & dry-fire practice, the trigger smooths out nicely. Give it a chance & enjoy it, I do mine.

Take Care.
FYI: Hand gun manufacturers introduce new models constantly because there's no one gun that will satisfy everybody. The LC9 fills a niche & it's unlikely they'll change it but, if you can find a competent gun smith he could do a trigger job for you using one of the after market trigger kits.

The LC9 will likely remain substantially the same unless Ruger finds a problem. They'll likely introduce a new firearm rather than mucking around with that one. Of course unless they adopt the Glock method... I can see my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandkids now "Wow... look, I just picked up a Glock Model 19 Gen 3087.

Keep putting lead down range with the LC9 and you find the trigger gets really smooth.

I inherited mine from my wife when she wanted something with a little less kick. I'm suprised at how accurate it is for a small auto. It's very comfy to carry and seems well made. The trigger doesn't really bother me but for some people it has been an issue.

I have a little over 600 rnds throught my LC9 and I do not mind the trigger. A lot of people complain about the stiff trigger but also a lot like it because they carry with the saftey off and do not have to worry about trigger snag. (so I've heard). I CCW with the saftey on and a rnd. in the chamber.

I'm the same way. Oner in the chamber safety on. I have heard some semi-autos have accidently discharged due to trigger snag, that won't happen with the LC9 unless something really crazy happens. My wife now owns a Sig p238 and I explained to her about the importance of the safety.

They will drop the LC9 and just keep the LCP?

Sorry, just kidding.
