Hubby bought me a Ruger LCP for Valentine's Day. Keep the flowers, candy and bling. My man bought me a gift that keeps on giving...me security. It is two tone...raspberry and black. Sweet.
I wanted one because during Christmas shopping I carried his. Easy to carry in jeans pocket and easy to access. I usually carried a revolver...another ruger five shot. I carried it in my concealed carry purse, but it is heavy when shopping. I still love my revolver, but now it sits next to my sewing basket as home defense. The LCP is great carry weapon.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Between the Wife and I we own three Rugers. All three are revolvers that are too big for carry but, they are the primary house defense guns.
Rugers are as reliable as a box of rocks. The only problems I have ever seen with Rugers has always been the fault of bad ammo.
Do not stand between Me and Mine!!
I currently own the LCP and LCR with CT...both are super carry guns, and reliable as a stone ax. Hard to beat 'em.
My cousin decided on the Ruger SR9 for $399 with holster and a box of ammo for that price.
I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.
Excellent choice!! We need pics and a range report!!

I own a Ruger P89 9mm, and it's a well built firearm. It doesn't any heavier than my Glock 21SF. Ruger is a well known brand name, yet it's less expensive than other brands. I don't know why.
Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

My buddy had a P95 that had a bunch of issues jamming and not accepting different ammo. That put a bad taste in my mouth with Ruger, especially when it comes to a self defense handgun. Also, the NRA magazine American Rifleman had an article in the latest issue about .380's and indicated that he had problems with jamming on the Ruger LCP.
So for me, I'd stay away from it unless it just a range toy. It sounds like other's here have had the opposite experience, but I'll stick with something found heavily with the police forces; and Ruger ain't it.
