Bought this pistol today!

Very happy with this .380 very comfortable in the hand. Was looking at the Sig 238, Kel Tec PF-9, and the Karh p.380.

Met in the middle and bought the Ruger with a nice Uncle Mikes IWB holster.

That's it just wanted to share this

Nice...

Long trigger pull took some getting used to. It's a handful, took me 10 rounds before I hit the paper at 30', but, it's not a target firearm

have the LCP 2yrs. perfect edc gun. No matter what i wear i can carry this no problem. I do most of my practice at 15-20 feet. Point and shoot keeping all 7 rounds in a 6 in bull.
When i can dress differently i like to carry my keltekp11. Gives me a little more firepower and 11 rounds. One note though, LCP is ALWAYS in my wallet holster even if p11 is on me. (gotta admit, i shoot better with LCP.)

The LCP is a top selling pistol for more than one reason and it isn't a dirt cheap price. They are reliable pistols. In addition the are so light and compact... For me, .380 is too light a round as a first choice defensive but it has done the job for many a would be victim... You might take a look at Buffalo Bore offerings in some variety of a wad cutter or flat nose... I find the opening of the .380 to be small enough on many JHPs that it clogs with denim or fabric as it hits a target and then it acts like a lightweight fmj round. I personally would do a TON of research before settling on my defensive round...

I seriouisly considered an LCP but ended up with the Sig P238. Enjoy your gun. I think it was a good choice. I liled the trigger pull better on the Sig and I liked that it had a safety. You sure can't beat the LCP for size and weight, though.

For sure.

All the research I've done points to a good FMJ round to achieve adequate penetration as the best choice for a self-defense round in .380.

I, too, have the Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace LaserGuard, and it fits nicely in an Uncle Mike's #3 pocket holster for those days when my XD isn't a feasible carry option.

I find that with an LCP 380 one would have to consider the ammo regarding season.
In the summer I use JHP that won't clog up with threads of heavier clothing, and
in the wintry months use FMJ that penetrates through such clothing worn.

I plan on experimenting with different defense ammo so far it's ran everything smooth I also carry it +one the trigger pull is so long I feel very safe

Okay, seriously. How "wintery" does it ever get in Florida?
