Own A Ruger LCP 380?
 
This small back-up is one hellava gun. Small, light, accurate, and potent. :D
Anyone else own one?

2). Congrats and indeed, the Ruger LCP is a nice little pocket gun. ;)

The wife has one for her everyday carry. There are quite a few on here that have the Elsie Pea.

Neat little gun, too bad it is really a Kel-Tec knock off....

The LC9 is a Ruger design.

It's currently my primary CCW, soon to be a BUG. Neat little gun, but it takes some getting use to. I'm use to SA triggers, and something I can hold onto.

Also, it took about 150 rds for it to smooth out, but seems to feed well now. Before I'd have to bump the slide closed with my thumb half the time. But, I think part of the problem was me not getting enough oil in the slide/frame grooves.

I bought my LCP last Tuesday (or was it Wednesday?), and finally took it to the woods yseterday. Put 50 rounds of Monarch FMJ and ten rounds of Hornady Critical Defense through it with only one FTF (when my wife was shooting it).
I like it, but the sights are nothing to write home about. Of course, in a self-defense situation, does anyone look at the sights anyway? I was able to shoot it one-handed ok, with both dominant and week hands, which is more than I can say about my .38 Airweight or the P10-45 (my left (weak) wrist has 11 screws in it after a fracture, and doesn't take kindly to much direct recoil).

It's a terrible little gun but I would never ever get rid of it! Yes it's a great CCW but it's no fun to shoot. My suggestion to anyone who wants to buy one, get it and shoot it enough to get used to it, then put it away and hope you never need to use it. My hands aren't that big but this thing isn't what I thought it would be. But with that said, I would never give up such a great gun for what it is intended for. It's small and has the safe trigger for CCW. Accuracy is something that you can't work on on a CCW weapon, it's self defence you are looking for not target or range shooting. I give it a 10 for what it is intended for.

In my pocket in a Alabama Holster Company Kydex holster right
now, all day, EVERY day.

Factory sights are worthless, but it points well. I've got a CT
laser on it. Filled with Federal Hydra-Shok's. It's far from the
ultimate defense gun/caliber, but it beats the heck out nothin'.

I actually found it to be a fun gun to shoot. Fifty rounds through the LCP was no worse than fifty through my Para P10-45, to me at least.

Mine has proven itself reliable. I have big hands and have trouble holding onto it because of it's small size but don't feel it kicks that much. The perceived recoil isn't bad at all IMO. It makes an excellent BUG.
