Default Ruger lcp?

Anyone carry it? Do you like it? Is it reliable? Where do you generally carry it?

Yes I like it , I carry mine iwb. My only complaint is its trigger pull is hideous. That along with the external safety make it a very safe pistol to carry. But the trigger pull will effect your accuracy I know it effects mine. I practice keeping my shots center mass at 10yds, much past that and you would have a tough time claiming self defense anyway. Buy it, for pp/sd ,safety,comfort and concealability Id say its my favorite pistol I own.

The LCP does not have an external safety.

(A) Yes, in the warmer weather when carrying my XD-40 isn't as feasible.

(B) Yes, but it's not fun to shoot particularly.

(C) Yes, but I recommend a thorough break-in period, and be sure if you use hollow points that they feed reliably. I personally prefer FMJ for self defense in the .380 caliber.

(D) Everywhere that's legal! In an Uncle Mike's® nylon pocket holster in my right front pocket.

You're right Winds.

True my fault I was thinking LC9,and if the trigger pull is like the LC9 you prob wouldn't need a safety

Great little gun. Eats everything I've given it. Carry it in an Uncle Mikes #2 in the right front pocket...shorts only, jeans no. Jeans ain't as loose as they use to be. Great hot weather carry. And these days, its Death Valley temps. Trigger is long but it is not a plinker.

I carry my Ruger LCP .380 so much it is a part of my anatomy. Not suppose to be my primary carry, as my .45 S&W is, but I find it quite light in weight, very efficient for closed confrontation, and (did I say) very reliable.

Great little light weight carry piece, but what a tough gun to fire.
