    While, I agree that this would most likely resolve the issue, I'm not sure it is the best resolution since this is my wife's daily carry and she doesn't have the same hand strength that I/we do. The stock spring, compounded with the small profile of the slide, seems to be about all she can handle.

    We have 3 LCPs in our family. I have never had this happen.

    New Issue with my LCP Update

    Spoke with Ruger tech at customer service today, stated that this is a integral part of the design and is a built in safety feature.

    I call shinannigans.

    At this point, I am starting to look for a new primary for the wife and will demote the LCP to BuG/holdout for home.

    On a side note, I do not appreciate them telling me it is meant to do something that I know it is not and most likely will be updating wishlists... Mini14.. off, SR9... off, :: well, back to the drawing board.

    thanks all.

    Are they saying that the gun not firing out of battery is a safety feature (good) or that the slide not going back forward on its own is a safety feature (huh?).

    Like I said before, I've never had this happen - I carry mine in a pocket holster, and my wife carries hers in a belly band.

    The LCP is so light weight, I don't think I would ever use it as an impact weapon anyway. Not sure this is a big deal?

    Exactamundo. Things like this are why I stayed with J frames for my entire career for back-up/off duty use.

    If you can pocket carry a J frame, then great. For me, they print way too much in a pocket. The LCP prints like a wallet. A J frame prints like a book.

    I'm not sure that I understand this part of the original post. Are you saying this causes the gun to go out of battery and not return?

    That is correct. And Ruger tech claims that this is designed safety. I think it is BS and am unhappy to be lied to.

    I agree with your response... unless he was in fact saying that it was a safety feature that the gun would not fire while out of battery. Now, if he fully understood that the gun was not returning to battery after a slight movement, and still claimed "safety feature", then I would question his intellegence. As much as I dislike the whole issue of the origin of the LCP, I don't think it was designed with such inferior "safety features" as the Ruger tech implied.

    Mine did it - it would also happen when i chambered a round sometimes. Spring seems to light to me - as some have said. I also had FTE's and FTF's - not a ton but several in 200 rounds. Just never got comfortable with it - hated the trigger. Sold it.
    Great privilege comes with great responsibility.

    Mine sticks too. However i haven't had any FTF's or FTE's (yet). Granted I'm only around the 150 round mark. If it keep working I'll just have to make sure I press on the back of the slide when it goes into its holster and then into my pocket.
