It's not the size that matters, its how you use it

Tell us what you think of the Elsie Pea once you've gone to the range. I assume the G27 shoots like any Glock, but the Ruger is a little different.

I bought a walther pk 380 for my wife because it has an easy slide to rack and manual safeties. I absolutely love this gun!! It is very accurate and it feeds and ejects every time. I basically stole it from her and use it as my summer carry gun. This is a great gun to introduce your gal to shooting.

Just bought an LCP, myself! Haven't gone to the range yet. I'm waiting for the Golden Sabers to arrive (102grain HP). I hear they cycle well in this notoriously finicky princess, Elsie Pea.

I also bought a Nemesis to go with it. I have usually bought firm leather pocket holsters, but this one seems to call for a soft, padded cave to huddle in.

We'll see how it fires.

Well I have only carried my 27 since putting about 300rds through it. Amazing gun and just as accurate as the 9mm once you get the grip right. I was worried at first because it hurt my hand like an aluminum baseball bat hitting a baseball wrong. You got to really snug up high on the frame. The 2 finger grip is no problem at all once you get it. I have all the mags for it 9,10,13,15,22 with sleeves and the rest of the goodies. I'm also looking at a 9mm barrel just to cut down on plinking costs. The LCP; Interesting I did not expect it to kick like it did. It has similar recoil to my .357 snubnose revolver. Not fun to shoot but I forced myself to put 100rds through it. Should be good for when I need a gun to fit in a pack of smokes lol... Seriously that thing is small... Lately, being lazy I've actually found myself wearing workout shorts and dropping the 27 in the pocket (unchambered, with 9rd mag) and doing quick errands cuz I like it soooo much. I was considering a 23 also but with the 13rd mag it's the same thing!

I go with a Glock m19 for CC, with a Kahr p380 as a BUG/summer gun.

an LCP is a great back-up choice, I wouldn't use it for CC though. I chose the G19 for CC because it's well rounded and reliable.


I still wanna buy an LCP though....

I looked/checked out the Ruger LCP. I didn't like the way it shoots, or feels in my hand. Even though the Kahr is smaller, it just handles better, IMHO. I also looked at the TCP, the Kel-Tec, and considered a PPK or Bersa. The larger size of the Bersa is nice, but then it made me consider a small 9mm, like the Taurus PT709 "Slim", or perhaps another smallish 9mm. It might be nice to have another 9, as I have a good sized stash of this caliber.

Shoot the LCP before you buy one. It changed my mind.
