LC9 in hand

I just picked up my LC9. Got a good deal even, $379, $412 out the door.
It feels great in the hand, a bit smaller then my SR9C and much easier to conceal. I think this is going to be my carry gun after a good break in. So far not one misfire or jam.

Does it shoot to point of aim? This seems to be a common complaint, although I suspect that it is mostly operator error.

Congrats on your LC9. Mine is less than a week in hand and runs w/o problem so far. It shoots low and left as many have reported. As bgreid asked "Does it shoot to POA?"

I plan to shoot mine from the bench, resting on sandbags this weekend to rule out my getting used to the long trigger pull...

I have not really had a chance to test hard core POA. I just have it out in the back yard running some mags for a break in period. So far it is a fine shooter and I belive it will be just fine as a concealed carry 10 yard point and shot gun.

Mine shoots a little low and to the left as well. Not bad enough to adjust anything though. Once I got used to it I was able to get some bullseyes and acceptable groupings. I would like to do something about the long trigger pull. I know DAO pistols are/need to have a long pull but if I could get it adusted just a tad forward I think my aim would be a little better. Can always use the safety as well. Any comments?

Mine has a front sight off set to the left and rear sight off set to the right - only a little, but enough to put the groups right 10 to 12 inches at 15 yds. I consulted Mother Ruger and she said DO NOT try to adjust the front sight myself. She sent me a prepaid overnight UPS label to ship it to Prescott for them to fix the sight. It went out at 5pm today.
I have put over 300 rounds of various ammo through it - including a lot of Winchester White Box ball and even 50 rounds of the cheapest stuff I could find to test the reliability (Hungarian MFS). There were no FTL, no FTE, and only one FTF which was obviously a Hungarian primer problem - it was hit hard in my LC9 and again in the range captain's 9mm without detonating. IMHO, my LC9 is a quality, reliable, small, light, easily concealable every day carry candidate.
I hope Mother Ruger does her thing and sends it back home soon - I have another couple of hundred rounds that are gathering dust.
