    Crazy Me, Ruger LCP, sold one now I bought another one?

    Ok, I argued about the 380 being not powerful enough, about the long trigger and the poor sights, about the grip being so hard to hang on to.

    After trying to pocket carry a S&W 642 and a Kahr PM9, both are just too big for most of my pockets, and I have to be able to carry and not be made at my job.

    I sold the first LCP last fall, and now I just purchased another new Ruger LCP, I shot 85 rounds through it Saturday without any problems. I will carry it for the summer months in the right front pocket, I have order a front pocket holster from Recluse.

    Live and learn, I should have kept the first LCP but I talked myself out of it.

    Congrats on the LCP. Just make sure that you do not sell it again

    Learn't the hard way eh? Been there done that. Not again. I bet when you were gettin' ready to get rid of the first one, that there were some people that tried to talk you out of it, or tell you that you should just keep it, or you'd regret it. Should have listened eh? LOL Just pickin' at ya.

    At least it wasn't an expensive gun you got rid of and had to re-buy.

    The MPA Protector 380 I traded for the Ruger LCP, I did receive the recoil springs from Master Piece Arms, the new springs were about 1/2" longer, I went the the range to shot it with the new springs and it fired ok for 10 rounds or so, I just could not stand the way it tore up my trigger finger up, and I would never trust the gun after so much trouble.

    Almost sold my LCP until someone on a thread suggested I shoot it one handed and it worked! Less recoil and, thus, more fun to shoot when I go to the range just to run a few thru it. You better keep it this time--- I almost made the same mistake and now I have added the CT laser & it is one sweet pocket gun!

    I must admit that I too argued against the Ruger LCP as a viable CC weapon. Then, I did buy one to use as a BUG for my 9 MM primary.

    Now, a month later, the LCP is my primary, at least for the summer months, and maybe next winter also.

    The little lady is reliable, accurate, nicer looking that a lot of other weapons, and conceals like a dream. I think she's a keeper.

    Elsie rocks!
    Yeah, My old CCW 9 MM is nicknamed "Barkey"
    New CCW LCP is "Elsie"
    and my 12 Ga S x S Coach gun is "Boomer"
    Wife's weapon is "Miss Pearl" (SP101 .357 w/mother of pearl inserts)
    We're old so we can get away with that.

    I like the LCP w/CT in the Recluse holster.

    Unlike the Super Fly, it won't dislodge your LCP when you don't want it to.

    Very safe and secure in my back or front pocket.

    I sold my LCP and picked up a PM9, no regrets here... but I did get some messages letting me know I'll regret it one day.

    Time will tell, congrats on the re-purchase.

    I did the same thing bought a PM9 and found out it does not pocket carry for me, I really like the PM9 accurate and reliable, I carry AIWB in a High Noon Hidden Alley holster.
