Thing is, Ruger has sold OVER 500,000 LCP's in about 3 yrs. so, of course, S&W wants a bigger piece of the ever-growing new-CCW-pie in shall-issue states. I think maybe lately they've been getting their $ butt kicked compared to Ruger... Looks like they're drawing a line in the sand now. The competition is all better for us as long as they're not cutting too many quality control corners, eh?
