Default Okay, second piece acquired...

Just picked up the LCP to add to the Ruger family. Wow this thing is tiny. I thought the LC9 was small, but this sucker is an ankle biter... Anyway, getting a chance to shoot it in an indoor range in a couple of weeks, can't wait to see how she performs.

Any others out there with this little sucker? Love to hear some user experiences... I know its generally considered a womans piece, but I'll take anything to hold me over until I can fire mine.

Here's my daughter's Elsie Pea on my Colt Defender.

It's a little dog with a big bite!

I'd much rather shoot the Colt mouse gun rather than the extremely light weight 380 LCP.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

its got to be the small frame and recoil spring thats the cause of this kick.

I'm kind of interested in an LCP. Keep the reviews and opinions coming.

Yeah they weigh next to nothing even loaded lol. And as for recoil springs they actually have 2. When u field strip it (which is super easy btw) when u remove the guide it has a smaller spring inside a bigger both the same length

Nope, it's the physics.

Energy vs Mass (the law of conservation of momentum.)
