First off, my point here is not to debate whether .380 is a sufficient self-defense round.
It's really more to praise a little gun that's always with me, and has never failed to feed a round - bone stock (372-# series). I've had it for about two years now, and it's really proven itself.
This weekend I was at range blowing the dust off some guns. After going through my favorite shooters (1911's and Glocks), I decided that it's been a while since the LCP got a workout. I was amazed that at 25' and 50', I was getting the same groups as I was with the full-size guns. Dare I say, I even enjoyed shooting it. The long trigger is smooth enough to hold dead on, and follow up shots were pretty quick.
I do believe that Ruger got this one right.
