I may have to track one down and give I a chance.

Default Lcp

I have a love/hate relationship w my LCP. Love to carry it, IWB preferred plus Bulldog cell phone wannabe case - which stays on my nightstand. Can be left right out in the open w/o causing alarm.

Not a fun gun to shoot but w CT laser - amazingly accurate. Far beyond what a self-defense belly gun needs to be. Gun plus CT was on sale for $300. That deal might be long gone.

If your not going to carry it or don't mind condition one in your pocket, I love the Sig 238s sights and SAO will always be smoother than DAO. If your going to shoot a lot, Sig even makes an all Steel model.

The Rugers DAO is very long for a reason - its the only safety or margin of error the gun has. Under stress or duress you will appreciate this feature.

I use Critical Defense 90 gr and Golden Sabor 102 gr HP. Perfect reliability so far.

Thanks for the input. I was going to try a few different round through it to see what it likes. Useful in the break in and to get comfortable with the gun.

jpenn856 Magtech seems to be a solid fmj for just getting time behind the trigger then pick a quality HP and try. Drirty but runs well. I have read of some dumby that tied all sorts of ammo mixed with out being sure of what worked and did not work. Write it all down in a log as to the results. Put a couple pieces of inner tube of different widths around the grip to help hold on to it . Free at most bicycle shops when old tubes are replaced. Mountain bike tubes work great.

I do bike repairs and never thought of that. Great idea! As for mixing. I like to take time to shoot a box. Clean the gun and try a new box. Took my sig to the range and shot federal and blazer brass at the same time. Blazer fouled up a lot in my sig but I couldn't figure out if it was the federal making the blazer mess up or the blazer just being a mess. After taking a box of each individually to the range I found the sig hates blazer.

The smaller the action the more finicky they tend to be; hence, the need to do a thorough break-in. I'd stay away from any hollow point until you have several hundred rounds through the LCP.

And on the subject of hollow point ammo....I am in the camp of people who believe that .380 hollow point isn't the best choice for SD purposes. The .380 is a marginal SD caliber at best, and particularly in a situation in which you might need to penetrate heavy clothing the hollow point round has proven to be much less effective from the standpoint of penetration.

I recommend shooting a good, reliable FMJ round. Some folks go to the trouble of using a hollow point during the warmer months, i.e., less clothing, and the FMJ for winter.

Your gun, your rules.

Had one for a little over a year, I use a pocket nemesis to carry. Does leave a larger than desirable print even in Carhart double knee loggers. Also have a IWB minituck Crossbreed. That holster makes too many creaking noises and is slightly uncomfortable. I need to make some adjustments to it. The thing about IWB holsters that I don't like is the idea of buying pants one size larger than normal. I shoot Hornady TAP ammo(>500 rounds). Feeds reliably after every shot. Do not like the trigger pull that begins in Alabama and ends up in Oregon. But for safety sake really do appreciate it. I have also removed te blueing from the barrel, polishedthe throat, added Crimson Trace, and instaleed heavier springs.
