I have a Bersa Thunder Concealed Carry . It has an 8 round mag. Nice gun. I like it.

Hey, willfully, I'm interested in the LCP.

I know its trigger is long (as I've read before), but what makes it a "horrible" trigger? I mean, what characteristics make a "bad" trigger?

It would be for my wife.

a trigger pull of nearly a mile(inch) and heavy.


IF you loved her, youd buy the Sig



Ive shot one of each, and even considering the concealability, Id not buy a LCP/P3AT.

For barely more money, they DB380 is a way better choice. Like a Mini Glock.

Before you spend the money on a SIG (which I consider to be a great gun, but the way) try the Bersa Thunder. Mine has trigger in par with the SIG and has never malfunctioned, all for about $225...

I have a feeling I highjacked the thread, but the OP is MIA and has a big learning curve in from of him (do a lot of reading and trying out different firearms before moving forward on any purchase, birdguy).

My concerns about the Bersa (definitely higher on my list for .380 than the LCP), but for one major drawback: it has that external safety. I want my wife to be able to draw, point, squeeze. That's it. This is why I'm still leaning toward LCR, which has GREAT reviews for its trigger in the snubbie world.

Thanks for that definition: A mile long is "HORRIBLE". I suppose when the long trigger pull is your only external safety, then it might change your opinion a bit, huh?

When I carry my Bersa I have one in the pipe and a full mag. I use the decocker to drop the hammer. Then I put it back in the fire position. It is not really a safety. It is a decocker. This enables the gun to be drawn and the trigger to be pulled in double action. The next shot will be in single action.

Same for me. The safety is there if you want it, but it can still be used in double-action mode without it...

Default Rugar LCP

If weight is not a problem, there are probably lot of small .9mm out there. I live in FL with a tucked in shirt, so I have to carry "in the pocket" where ounces count. I tried the Taurus TCP, but it had a high FTE rate. Lots of people on this blog recommended the Ruger LCP. So far it is great, not a single misfire of any kind. I also got the Crimson Laser and am happy as a pig in s**t!!!!!!!!!!
