    Lightweight Compact Pistol. Ruger also has a LCR, Lightweight Compact Revolver in case you are interested.

    Currently have CorBon DPX in my P3AT, but just managed to find a box of Hornady Critical Defense. I'll do a wet test this weekend of the 380 ammo I have (Golden Saber, Hornady, Corbon DPX) and see what I like the best. Probably the Critical Defense since brassfetcher.com gave horrible reslults of the DPX.

    A lot of the folks I work with at the gunshopcarry a small, polymer framed, DAO pistol chambered for a .380 caliber round. Happens to be a different manufacturer than the LCP. They all load Gold Saber, and we have our choice of ammo, at least for now.

    I like the Hornady stuff. Pretty good performance as per Stephen Camp's testing report. Fairly mild kick and a fairly good price.

    Could be better out there - perhaps the likes of B.Bore and such. But they'd probably kick more and be hard on the gun and I don't want that.

    I have hydra-shocks in mine right now, but will try some of the critical defense, whenever I happen to bump into some.

    People, the question is, what ammo do you carry in your Ruger LCP, not your S&W M642 or your .45 Auto.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
