Nice, practical assessment of the capabilities of the Ruger LCP.
I have one with the Crimson Trace LaserGuard and it is my hot weather carry pistol.
Since you asked about our experience with ammo, I must say I disagree with the choice of Hornady Critical Defense round. From the data I have seen, Critical Defense is long on hype and short on performance. My own personal experience with it is even worse - I had numerous hard-primer strikes resulting in failure-to-fire incidences, and after doing some research, I found that Hornady knew about their primer problems and were slow in rectifying the situation. I even tried multiple times via email outlining my problems with the lot number of the box and received not so much as an acknowledgement.
I use FMJ exclusively, but another good HP round probably makes sense in the climates where heavy clothing is not in use.
Nice work on both videos.
