My problem with the LCP is user error. I tend to shoot quite low with it unless I'm REALLY concentrating on squeezing the heck out of it with the 1.5 fingers I can get on it. I think I pull the muzzle down when I pull that long/stiff DA trigger. But, that's no fault of the gun, that's just me being used to SA triggers, or DA triggers on revolvers that are big enough for me to hold on to.

I think the LCP for what it is, is great, I just need to spend more time shooting it.

Brian, do you by chance have a Blackberry phone.
Nope. iPhone 4.

Ha ha...it has a pink cover though right...ah..I mean raspberry.

I'm just giving you a hard time. I don't own any of the pink guns, but I think they're cool as heck...they're just so different than what you're use to. I keep trying to get LadyHawk to get a pink gun but she doesn't like them.

I picked one used about a week ago but I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. I ran 100rds of WWB thru it with not a single issue It shoots alright but I'm just not sure I'm a fan of pocket carry.

I'm not a gun trader to begin with. Once adopted all guns are family and can't be sold/traded/abandoned in my opinion that being said, I will always have my LCP. Even if I decide to not carry it, it's just too darn convenient.

It doesn't eat much and take up hardly any space, and there is always a chance that the need may arise for gun that will fit under my ball cap.

Main problem with pocket carry is accessibility once you sit down. And if you are in a seatbelt and need your Elsie Pea, good luck. That said, having a gun that's difficult to get to in some positions is better than no gun. When I need to pocket carry, it is LCP in my pocket. When I can OWB or IWB, I go with my Kimber Ultra.

I do like that pinkie extension, but it isn't for my pinkie, just better traction for the ring finger.

I'm not a great fan of pocket carry either, but sometimes you don't have another option. When I have a shirt tucked in, I can't wear anything on the hip. The pocket is my 2nd favorite place to carry for that reason. Pocket is more accessible than the ankle.

Except when sitting down...especially in the car with a seatbelt on! Which is why you are not a big fan of pocket carry, I presume.

For me, if I am wearing the right clothes for IWB, there ain't no way I'm going to carry a .380. It is 1911 3" in .45acp. But like you say, sometimes I must tuck in my shirt.

Get a Crossbreed Supertuck and that won't be an issue. I can wear my Kimber in a shirt and tie and no one knows.
