    • Recall on early models
    • Basically a Kel-Tec P3AT clone with better build quality
    • Long, heavy trigger pull
    • Close range, point and shoot type of gun
    • Accurate, reliable

    Pretty much what he said.

    Extremely easy to conceal but because of its small size it does take some extra practice to become proficient with it.

    If you must have a pocket gun LCP should fill your needs. Small, light and reliable.

    Much better quality than the Kel Tec P3at, Its a very small handgun that can be easily pocket carried. Good value at $300 or less. I saw them at the Raleigh Gun show (what a circus) this weekend as low as $259, prices averaged around $279.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Great little pocket gun, Thinking that is why wranglers put pockets on their jeans, so I would have a place for mine. Very dependable, not a long range gun, but did not buy it for a long range gun. If I pull the trigger it has never failed to shoot, and shoot , and shoot.... practice regular, carry forever. What good is a ccw if you do not have a gun you will always carry.....this is not the only gun I own, or carry, but it is the one I carry the most.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

    Footnotes:

    you can't buy one in California as a civilian.

    and, yes, the slide does not lock back after magazine and chamber are empty.

    Better yet, a haiku review:

    Tiny pocket gun
    Shoot a lot, your hands will sting
    Some sights would be nice

    We have three of them in the family.

    Sometimes, I carry two of 'em. My wife carries the other.

    Ran one through a low light pistol class - embarrassed some folks shooting much larger pistols.

    Use FMJ ammo. Add the finger extension. Add the CT laser. Paint the front sight.

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

    When did all of you get your guns. If you go on the LCP site all they talk about is how the gun needs Wolf springs and the ramp needs to be polished and more. I had one a year ago that would not feed and I ended up moving it for a Bodyguard S&W. Just had that lock up on me,have that in the wind going back to S&W to be repaired, when I get it back it will need to do hand stands before I trust it. Right now I am carrying a S&W j-frame, no feed problems any more.

    I bought mine in January of this year. It has been flawless on Remington FMJ, PMC FMJ and Hornady CD. No mods. Just keep it clean, use a light oil and no grease. They can be picky on ammo, find an round that shoots good in your gun and stick with it.

    I've had mine a couple of years - it went through the recall. I've run at least 300 rounds without incident.

    I friend of my has a LCP. It only has 50 rounds through it but it shot great! Easy to carry, small and light weight. My neigbor has a LCP. He carrys his everywhere and really likes the small frame and concealability. He puts his in his pocket holster and away he goes.
