Ruger LCP Slide locking question/concern
I'm new to the forum but have been reading here and learning for quite a while now, great place!
I recently purchased an LCP for carry at a local gun show and took it to the range yesterday for the first time.
I noticed that when the magazine empties and the last shot has been fired that the slide does NOT lock in the open position as one would expect from a semi-auto pistol.
I've read and experienced conflicting accounts of this behavior with some pistols locking open and others not. My buddy's LCP locks open in this scenario.
Can anyone confirm that the slide staying closed is expected behavior?
