Summer carry gun
Picked up a Ruger LCP to carry while I'm mowing my 3 yards/fields, since the XD 45 was a bit hard to hide under a tee-shirt. I love the way in fits my front pocket. Haven't got to the range with it yet, to see how it shoots due to rain, but when I do I'll report back with a range report.
So far the only thing I don't like about it is the takedown pin, it's made out of plastic and you have to pry it out with a screwdriver, don't see it lasting very long.

Make sure you run AT LEAST 200 rounds through it before you carry it...They have kind of a rough break-in period...

Congrats on the purchase. And yes, do break that bad boy in before you carry it daily.
I prefer a S&W 642/442 with .38 specials or a 640/649 with .357 mags for pocket carry. Quite a bit more stopping power than a .380 and a much more reliable weapon platform.

Neat little gun. I thought about getting one, but would rather stay with 9mm.
Good luck with it.

For mowing and yard work purposes, Do you plan on using "shot-shell" for ammo? Just curious if your looking to do some snake charming with an LCP. I never seen snake-shot in .380.

Holstered LCP in my pocket right now and everyday actually. I'm a farmer and just anything else would be better, but the LCP is about the only thing that won't get in my way.
Regarding the take-down pin. I agree it is hard/awkward to get out. I intend to make a little jig to hold the gun in place and tool to pull the pin. I didn't like the screwdriver/prying scenario either.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

Screw driver prying and gun should not be used in the same sentence. YIKES!!!!!

Enjoy the LCP, recommend a good pocket holster as it will also protect the gun from sweet etc as you mow the grass.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
