I wanna carry IWB I'm thinking. I went and handled the Ruger LCP 380. I have no experience with the 380. That small caliber has me second guessing trusting my life on it... What do you guys think about the LCP and just the 380 in general?

With the right ammo, the .380 is a good defensive round. There are those that will argue differently, but I believe the firearm & your diligence in learning to shoot it well is more important than the caliber. Comes down to shot placement & if you choose a firearm that you do not like to practice with or you find is too hard to conceal, so you do not practice or do not carry, the caliber is immaterial.

Any advice is much appreciated.. Thanks guys!
45's are so 20th century . Be a rebel and help get ammo cost down and buy a glock 20 or 29 10mm ... I just got the 20 and im sooo glad I didnt go with a .45 and I paid 530.00 out the door

I have only had my ltc for 3 months & I have managed to put 8 handguns in my safe....my wife only knows about 1. My advice is to lie & deny.....if you absolutely have to you can usually buy your way out of it.

Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumpin' around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree? Am I drinking milk from a saucer? DO YOU SEE ME EATING MICE?

And to the OP. All I have to say is whatever you do decide make sure you are comfortable with your decision.
