So i tried doing a search but found nothing. I keep reading about this new Ruger LCP and For summer carry when i'm wearing shorts and t-shirts it makes carrying my .45 a little difficult. So if anyone has seen or gotten their hands on one let me know what you think. You can't trust these magazines all the time.

sorry the link didnt work.

I know these things are selling like crazy but i'm really looking for opinions, does it feel like a toy, trigger pull anything that would make it an inferior firearm.

I don't have one, but its a Ruger so mechanically its going to be just fine.The thing that might make it "inferior" is your personal view of the .380 as a defensive round. You pays your money and you takes your chances.

ruger 380 lcp

i got one last week it fits perfect in a side pocket of cargo shorts and when i go to the gym i wear gym shorts and i slip it right in the waist band its great to carry .i also got a holster that keeps the gun upright in my front pocket of my shorts i suggest look into that to, but the first time i went to the range it jammed up almost every other clip. I was using american eagle ammo so that might be it ,but my buddy had a brand new kel-tec 380 and he was using remmington ammo and his was jamming up worse than mine so im not sure.i cleaned it and haven t been back to the range so if anybody can give me some tips on my problem that would be great. oh yeah great site everybody

A 380 isn't the greatest stopper in the world, but it is certainly better than having nothing. The LCP and Kel Tec P3AT are fantastic pocket guns. They are light weight, easy to conceal, and have 6+1 capacity. I pocket a P3AT most every day, but I also keep "big un's" in my car.

On a trip to a 'Major Outdoor Retailer' with a pocket full of gift cards from B-Days and the like, I ended up looking at pocket guns. It was the same $ for a KT P3AT and the LCP. I bought the LCP and I like it. Sights are nothing to write home about, but it shoots everything I feed it.

The place I bought mine said they received 5 on Wednesday and I bought the last on Friday afternoon for a higher price than most owners paid ($300).

$300.00 isn't too awful bad. It seems they normally go for $250.00 (in my area, that is).

I still don't know why they won't incorporate a last round hold open on these pistols like they do for the Kel-Tec .32 pistol.

I don't know either... KT says it's bad to dry-fire the P3AT, and yet you always dry-fire it when the ammo runs out... unless you happen to count shots. Did I shoot SIX or SEVEN?

That's the same problem they had with the SR9. You'd think they would have QC'd the LCP too:confused: My local gun shop has had three go back to Ruger for breakage. Apparantly there's a block or protrusion on the breechface end of the barrel(around 11 or 12 o'clock position) that is breaking off.

I shot one last week. I didn't have any problems with it. The wife and I both liked it. My only complaints are that the sites are really small and the trigger pull is looooooong.

The LCP recall doesn't speak good for Ruger's QA at all.

That's disappointing........:(

It really doesn't, which sucks because they just spent a lot or time and energy revamping the Mini line. I think they may have just rushed the LCP to market though. You see a lot of that these days.
