    Right now I would probably get the Ruger since it has been in production longer and already gone through its 'first generation' problems. In another month or so, I would choose the one that felt the best in my hand.

    Thanks for the replys everyone. My EDC is a G19 in a super tuck. But I dont carry it to work and sometimes it's easier to throw a .380 on than the whole gun belt, holster and G19.
    I also dont want to spend more than $300 for a gun I will hardly shoot.

    I have my eye on a S&W MP45 compact. But that will be the bedside gun.

    To each his own, but a .380 pistol like the LCP is smaller, lighter, flatter, carries more ammo, is faster to reload, and is easier to carry reloads for, compared to a revolver. FMJ ammo in .380 gets 16-17 inches of penetration, while good .380 JHPs get 11-13 inches. For reference, the FBI calls for 12-15 inches. .380 does not seem so "lowly" to me...

    As far as the LCP vs TCP, between the two I'd recommend the Ruger. We have two, and thinking of adding a third. The gun is very good, the service outstanding. Not too many positive reports of good service from Taurus, unfortunately.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I just picked up a LCP and ran 100 rds through it w/out any issue or stoppage. It is a niche gun for me when it comes between not carrying, or taking the LCP. I perfer to carry my 9mm Glocks or my Ruger LCR over the LCP, but CCW is always a compromised depending on the days activities and stiuations.

    BTW- you tube the Winchester PDX1 in .380. Some guy tested it with denim over water jugs. While it didnt expand over 4 layers, it did AMAZING over a 2 layer denim test. Around .60 ish exp with ~12" penetration. The test gun was a LCP.... I wouldnt want to try to hit someone with that round wearing a jean jacket or leather jacket, but it would be bettern than nothing...

    I disagree. TCP all the way. Have had no problems with mine. For me it fits my hand better as well which helps with accuracy.

    Honestly, you can't go wrong with either. Whichever feels better for you should be the one to get. All companies have had issues in the past.
