This is a discussion on can someone give me the Cliff notes of Ruger LCP reviews within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Thanks...
- 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
Pull trigger goes bang
If you must have a pocket gun LCP should fill your needs. Small, light and reliable.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
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 $279.
When I leave the home port:
S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP
Great little pocket gun, Thinking that is why wranglers put pockets on their jeans, so I would have a place for mine. Very dependable, not a long range gun, but did not buy it for a long range gun. If I pull the trigger it has never failed to shoot, and shoot , and shoot.... practice regular, carry forever. What good is a ccw if you do not have a gun you will always carry.....this is not the only gun I own, or carry, but it is the one I carry the most.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
you can't buy one in California as a civilian.
and, yes, the slide does not lock back after magazine and chamber are empty.
Love mine, always goes bang and beats the @#$% out of a right hook....

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.

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'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.
