PanBacca: Any reliability issues or problems racking the slide w heavier spring ? My LCP has been extremely reliable & accurate W everything I feed it. CS laser corrects for speed bump like sights.

Too much like work to shoot too often.... Springs are usually matched to loads to protect frames from excessive wear so I am curious about recoil reduction.

I guess I'll pick one up when I find a good deal although 380 ammo is sky high

The LCP is one of the most successful carry designs in history. But before you buy one, turn it upside down and rack the slide - if it returns to battery w authority buy it. If not, walk away.

This little test stems from a YouTube problem video. I performed the test on mine and I couldn't stop mine from returning to battery no matter what I tried.

First (and unfortunately only) time I shot mine, it took 10 shots to get it on a 17x11 piece of paper from 30'. They are a handful, but what a great light weight carry!

Just got it. Due to life's little responsibilities, I've had ZERO time to shoot in the last several weeks. I like it for what it is, light weight occassional carry when nothing else will work. Plan to keep it, but need some time to shoot more.

Laser will help in a variety of ways. It will clean up your trigger pull so you will have a clean release and it will correct for speed bump like sights.

Which laser ? What is it going to be used for ? Self defense - CT lasers turn on automatically when you grip the pistol - this is NOT always a good thing but it quiets a certain segment...
