LCP owner for 3 years. Over 600 rounds through it. I carry it when a full sized pistol is not appropriate.

No laser, but if I have to use it, it will probably be within bad breath range. I can hit a sheet of paper at 25 yards though.

Over time my LCP is a gun that I don't like to shoot that much, but it is easy to carry. Mine has the Crimson Trace Laser on it. It is far from my favorite gun, but I don't see myself getting rid of it either. Unless maybe I get a Sig .380 instead.

It fits great in the center console or front pocket for that matter. It's so small it can go nearly anywhere.

I have carried my LCP with Crimson Trace laser for about six months now. It is a PERFECT BUG for my Glock 17, as it adds little bulk or weight. I have a Cross Breed pocket holster to keep the trigger safe, so carry chambered. Dialed the laser in, and enjoy the fact that I can hip shoot FAST and put the bullet where I want it.

I've had my LCP almost 3 years, IIRC, and it's holstered, in my pocket, pretty
much at all times. I don't carry in the shower and usually keep it on the night-
stand when in bed. When I'm driving, I have a larger pistol close at hand
because my pocket LCP is very difficult to retrieve when buckled in.

The longer I own my LCP, the more I like it. I do carry an extra mag. when I
leave the house.

I carry an LC9 most of the time and I have found it to be comfortable to carry with perfect reliability.

I don't own an LCP. I have a Kel Tec P3AT but I have shot plenty of LCP's. People complain about the accuracy of the LCP. If you can't hit an 8" steel every time at 10 yards with an LCP you just can't shoot a pistol. For the intended purpose of the LCP it is as accurate as it needs to be.

If you own a LCP you need to put a whites trigger stop on it. It is almost impossible to shoot most pocket pistols accurately without a trigger stop. The human finger is not capable of squeezing off a shot without the aid of a trigger stop due to the long trigger pull. You will either slap the trigger or slide your finger across the trigger to get a better grip, neither action is conductive to accuracy.

Here is a tutorial on making a white trigger stop. I use a black rubber bungee cord I found on the roadside to make trigger stops. A friend has a large rubber eraser he uses to make a trigger stops. Cutting the eraser off a #2 pencil will not hold up to pocket carry.

I haven't tried the LC9 but it looks just like a larger LCP and weighs a little
less than twice as much as the LCP. I do have a Taurus PT709 that weighs
a couple of ounces more than the LC9. It was my pocket gun until I got the
LCP. It was hard to accept a .380 over a 9mm but my LCP won out because
of the fact that I always have it with me. Sometimes I have to check if it's
still there.

I'm sure the LC9 is a great gun and if it had been on the market then, I
probably would have bought it instead of the Taurus.

If you want a slightly larger 380 the LC380 is the same size as the LC9,...
