    I just bought a Ruger LCP today. This is the first gun that I have bought brand new. I'm really excited to go to the range next weekend and try it out. I've got a question though... Is there anything I need to do before using it for the first time? (i.e. clean it, oil it, etc.) Like I said this is the first brand new handgun I've ever had. I'll post pics and a range report later. By the way, I paid $289.99 in case anyone was wondering. They would only sell me one box of ball ammo and one box of hollow point because of the shortage in .380 ammo.

    No shortage here in Astoria, Oregon. Fred Myers must have 30 boxes on the shelf ready for sale in FMJ and hollow point,

    i've decided on this pistol. But with my recent trip to Iowa costing me over 1k (car problems) I will have to wait a month or so to get one.

    I test drove the LCP about a year ago, very accurate at seven yards. Had problems with hollow point ammunition but the full jacketed stuff worked well. Nice firearm for the price.

    Looks good. I keep contemplating a pocket pistol of some form, and the LCP and LCR are at the top of my list.

    Well, the new LCR in .357 seems pretty fantastic though.

    CONGRATS MAN! you made an excellent choice! A lot of talk has been going on about whether to go with a Kel Tec or an LCP well I sell both on my site and I have owned Kel Tecs before and i promise you the LCP is a MUCH MUCH better gun. Its constructed close to the same as the Kel Tec but its made of better quality materials and the feed from the clip to the chamber is MUCH MUCH more reliable and the trigger springs are 5 x's better Quality than the Kel Tec. Great choice man!
