Love mine. I did put a little orange paint on that tiny hump of a front sight but that's the only thing I've done to it.....except shoot it of course.
One of the fundamental truths of the universe is that there isn't anything that cannot be improved with the addition of pirates, ninjas, strippers, midgets or monkeys.

clean and lube,then try a few different types of ammo..don't think you'll have any problems..congrats on the new lcp
You made a good purchase! And yes, do go to the Elsie Pea site. Virtually every thing LCP is covered there.

I'll second painting the front sight...use a base of white nail polish, then add two coats of florescent model paint (red or orange, whatever you like).
I also recommend the finger extension for the mag base plate - it turns a loose 1 1/2 finger grip into a strong 2 finger grip.
Finally, I really like CT lasers, but especially for a gun like the LCP with very rudimentary sights.
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.
Congrats on your new LCP. I traded one for a Kahr CW9, and I missed not having a true pocket pistol so I bought a second one. Ditto for the CT laserguard, it really turns this little pistol into a viable self defense weapon, especially at night when most criminal activity occurs.
God bless our troops!
Old School: Thanks for that. I did clean it and went to the range today. No problems, but I was a little surprised at the recoil. It wasn't as bad as my former 380-- Walther PPK/S--- but was not really fun to shoot: I didn't buy it for a range gun, but had hoped it would be a little more fun to shoot! It will be great for CCW, so I'll just content myself with that... BUT, is there a grip that can help even a little with the recoil?
