OFF-WORK this week,so I when't shooting today.Shot my S&W.38 airweight and my ruger .380 lcp...I put that Hogue Handall jr grip sleeve on the ruger lcp and what a difference it made. The handle of the gun is much bigger to hold on to. The recoil was much less snappy as they say...I wish I had done that along time ago,much,much better. You need all the handle you can get on this little gun and that rubber sleeve made the difference...THANKS..for that info on the sleeve.....

I'd assume putting that grip sleeve on pretty much rules out having a Crimson Trace on the LCP?

NO..I think it will slip over the crimson trace,the part that goes to the handle. It made shooting that little gun much more comfortable that's for sure.

.380 and a short barrel. At best it's a "get off me belly gun" but I wouldn't trust it to stop any threat. They are cute though,especially Shihan's pimpgrave lcpea.

Agreed, but I wonder if the tightness of the sleeve might compress the button and interfere with the CT's function?

After a range session filled with .45acp out of steel, my LCP really feels like a cap gun in strength. I wouldn't want to be shot by it, but Goju's point is valid. I've seen some really nice OWB holsters for the LCP on the used market lately, but if I'm going to go OWB, I'm going .45acp. This gun is a "I can't hide anything else in this outfit" sort of gun or a pure BUG to something larger.

I don't get the "snappy" title so many give it. It seems like a really easy shooter compared to a .38spl snubbie. Now those are snappy.

I saw at the range,someone had a grip sleeve on their ruger LCP and they said it didn't interfere with the crimson trace functioning at all??...so I guess it will work-on a gun with crimson trace......
