    New LCP this afternoon

    I took some advice from you guys and picked up a new LCP Ruger this afternoon for ccw. When I got home I stripped it and gave it a good cleaning then put fifty rounds through it. It was flawless and the recoil was less than expected. I am very impressed. Thanks for the great information on this board.

    Congrats on the purchase. The LCP is truely remarkable. I went out and bought a 2nd one no too long ago. My wife liked it as well, so now we have 3 between us. The LCP is perhaps one of the most useful pistols for ccw to come along.

    Has anyone had any problems with their LCPs? The magazine catch on mine broke off, and I've been unable as of yet to send it back to get it fixed. I'm just wondering if anyone had these problems?

    - I haven't had any build quality problems with my LCP. I had one FTF on the third round, but that's the only issue in 300+ rounds.

    Do what I did, buy her one of the new Raspberry colored ones so she can have one too!

    Mine has been flawless for well over 700 rounds so far!

    Congrats! You'll love it. It can go anywhere you want and you will forget that it is even there.

    Now good luck finding .380 ammo on a regular basis!

    Congrats! You'll love it. Other than the initial recall, mine has been flawless. It worked fine before the recall, and it has worked fine since. Regarding telling your wife; don't. In a few months if she finds out, you will be able to say, "What, this old thing?"
