    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.

    You made a good purchase! And yes, do go to the Elsie Pea site. Virtually every thing LCP is covered there.

I'll probably use it as a back-up to my M&P 9mm compact, but might use it as my EDC in the warmer months. Anything you might want to pass along will be appreciated. Many thanks.

    I picked one up when they first came out and I love the little guy, they have a very long trigger pull so if you want any sort of accuracy out of it make sure you creep the trigger back to get used to the pull. My father bought one and wanted to sell it because he was convinced he couldn't hit a silhouette target at 25 feet I watched him shoot and he was just jerking the trigger back and pulling the muzzle completely off target, they're best friends now that he corrected that issue.

    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 more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    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?
