    Anybody get one yet? Basically a copy of the Kel-Tec, but hopefully with the Ruger reliability and ruggedness I have come to expect. Summer is just around the corner and these little mouse guns are great for those times when carrying your primary weapon isn't practical.

    I am supposed to get mine in the middle of March. I hear they are starting to ship at that time. My supplier doesn't have an exact date.

    Supposedly, shipments went out to major suppliers on Feb 29, so I hope to get mine soon. The Kel-Techs have gone up in price so much over the last few months that the LCP is no longer out of line. I hope to have mine before my trip to nevada, as concealed carry is not of major importance to he locals there.

    Yes, I read at another forum today that LCPs are hitting the stores in very small quantities. Like one each! :(

    Yeah, kind of stinks. Distributors have them "allocated" for their biggest customers, and Ruger is only shipping limited numbers to the big box chains. I ordered one off of Gunbroker, it should be here next week. 300 +shipping, so it is about $70 over wholesale. I just didn't want to wait for Davidsons to call me up in six months and tell me I could finally order one.

    Just picked up my LCP this morning. It came in a week early but came in by itself. I have the first and only one my supplier was able to get. Cost was $259.00 which I think is very good. Range time tomorrow morning @ 10:00am. Can't wait to compare this one to my P3AT. :)
