    BUG Ruger LCP .380

    Howdy folks, I don't post much, just read a lot. I saw a Ruger LCP .380 at Gandar Mtn. today for $350 new and thought it would make a nice BUG gun, fit in my tux pocket easily and didn't know it was there.
    Typically I carry a .38 as my main gun on an ankle holster when wearing my tux and have never liked this set-up. With no belt and the fact that in the heat, we sometimes don't play in jackets, I'm looking at other options. I have a JackA$$ rig for my Walther PPK/S but it's difficult to play violin with a piece of iron in my armpit.
    Any ideas? Thought I'd pick your collective brains...

    Price is high - paid $289 for mine locally. We have two LCPs in the family. Very good pocket pistol.
    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.

    i also really want one of these, for those times when you cant carry a bigger gun, an LCP is perfect! (my dad had one and i borrowed it and loved it)

    I paid $329 for mine.

    It is excellent for pocket carry. Not too accurate past 7 yards, though. YMMV

    I carry an LCP as well. Nice gun. The price is definitely high. Good luck with your search.

    I think price is really reflected by what geographical location you are in. $350 is probably the upper end for one, but probably not out of line for NY state. I paid around $325 for mine, then got my wife one for about $309 here in Missouri.

    The thing about the Ruger LCP is that it's so small, there's really no excuse not to have it with you everywhere you go. My wife and I both use them as Back-Up guns. I think it would be a more than adequate primary gun for those very ultra discreet times when nothing else seems to work like wearing a tuxedo and playing violin. Again, it's really small enough that you can have it almost every where you go regardless of what kind of clothing you have on. I think you could probably hide it in a speedo if you had to.

    As far as accuracy goes, I think it has excellent combat accuracy. I can pop a 12 oz Styrofoam drink cup off the ground in rapid fire and make it dance all over the place with it. I was doing that the day I got it. One of our other forum members, J-Man was doing the same thing with it. Since then it has functioned flawlessly with close to 800 - 1,000 rounds through it. J-Man has made a couple of "swinging targets" and no problem hitting it center mass with standard silhouette target at 7-10 yards.

    I carry it in any and all pants pockets, either front or back and right or left side depending on what other guns I'm carrying or I have a weak side IWB Kydex holster for the LCP which also holds two reloads for my primary G-23.

    For your purposes, I don't think you'll go wrong with getting an LCP.

    - The LCP can definitely be accurate past that. The sights are the problem. I have a Crimson Trace on mine and have no problem hitting paper at 50'.

    I bought my chrome LCP for $290. The standard on goes for about $270 in CT.

    AIM sells them for $279 online with $20 shipping and a $25 transfer fee you are still well under your price at GM. Anything retail over $300 is too high.

    Hope you find a good price. $350 sounds a little high. Anything around $300 or less would be a good buy.

    Try a back pocket holster as the LCP will easily hide back pocket or front. Good luck!

    Yeah the LCPs are nice, going for about $350 locally here as well. I just bought the "raspberry" version for the g/f from Hoffman's $274.95 shipped:


    I like it! I'll have to get another for myself soon - a black one, I mean..

    A fair price for a LCP on average is under $300.00 Typically $279.00.

    Buds currently has them for $299.00+ But they can be a found for
    $279.00 frequently on Gunborker.

    Excellent little carry piece.

    good luck & Best!
