I've read some discouraging things about this guns having a short life expectance in terms of round count.
I can tell you that the rental LC9 at our range has held up quite well. Better than a lot of other guns.
The LC9 is a good little gun; it's very compact and yet has very manageable recoil. Yes, it has a magazine safety, but that's easily removed. Unfortunately it has one of the worst triggers I've ever experienced in a handgun.
