    New LCP

    I picked up a Ruger LCP to use as a backup and a quick grab n go pocket gun last week. I was at the range MDing an IDPA Match and had a few minutes and decided to try out the LCP.

    I started at 7 yards and fired a full magazine through it. Being pleased with those results I backed up to 10 yards. Even with the miniscule sights and shooting offhand I was impressed. I then backed up to 20yards and proceeded to put 12 rounds into the head of an IDPA target unsupported. I didn't measure the group but in retrospect I think it was no bigger than 3" to 4" inches at the most. This was done with WWB.

    I am very impressed with the shootability and accuracy of this little gun.

    Congrats. 'Hope yours holds up as well as mine has (bone-stock, two years of sitting on it every day, hundreds of rounds, no issues).

    I find the LCP is an excellent pocket carry gun.

    What made you choose the LCP over the p3at or tcp?

    The LCP is sweet little shooter, if anybody is looking to pick one up go with the stainless slide, mind must of got damp or wet washing a vehicle ? found a little spec of rust on the end of the slide. A Nice Bug
    or EDC depending on your daily travels ?

    I think it was probably all the good reviews I read and watched.
