I think what's more interesting than the lc380 is the fact that Ruger announced factory built extended mags for the LC9 and LC380! So 9+1 for the LC9 and 8+1 for the LC380 if I'm not mistaken.

It's pretty simple what the appeal is, less recoil. It's the same reason Springfield is rolling out a single stack 9mm next to the XDS 45.

I can see the LC380 being popular with female shooters. Low recoil and a bigger frame/grip than the LCP.

It might be popular with the female shooters for the lower recoil, but if you can carry the size of the LC380 on the body without printing it just seems you would carry the LC9.
I don't expect my EDC to be fun to shoot. I expected to work when I need it to (which is hopefully never). Quite frankly the LCP sucks to shoot. When at the range I make up a scenario in my head, draw from my holster, pop off the 7, reload it, and put it back at my 1 o'clock. That's it. I'm done with that feisty little thing.
The LC9 isn't that bad to shoot. Still not fun, but not bad at all. So I'm back to thinking "Who's buying the LC380 and why".
I really want to hear from someone who has shot one and can tell us the recoil difference between the LC9 and the LC380.

I may have just answered my own question. Maybe the female shooter that doesn't carry on the body would like the 380 in a larger, less recoil size. Now that would make since.
