To get a better grip on the gun without adding much length to it you might want to try a Ruger LCP grip extension. It lets you fit that extra finger on the grip.

Here is my experience with it.

Got some time to do some more shooting today. I feel much better about this gun now. It really is pretty darn accurate like I've seen people state. I just needed to grip it better, and pay more attention to aiming it. I was in a pretty big hurry the other night as it was getting dark and I'd been driving all day...(ok WOC, I ment my wife was driving )

Here's my first 5 rds, aiming at the dot...

Right handed (previous mags were two handed) and aiming for dot on left, and by now my hand was starting to hurt and I wasn't looking forward to pulling the trigger...

OK, this is the last one. This was left handed. I decided to give my right hand a break. That's a 1" dot.

I can see now that I need to do ALOT of practicing with this gun. I'm perfectly happy with these groups, but had all the time in the world to target the bulls.

I've always thought that it would be no problem to hit center of mass at that distance, even when trying to get off a quick shot under pressure, but being as far off as I was the first time I shot the gun with all the time I wanted to aim disturbs me!
