Ruger LCP Extended Mags...
I have recently purchased a Ruger LCP .380 and have searched high and low for a "sleeve" to slip over the 10rd mags available. Found them for Glocks and M&Ps and SA includes them with there compact pistols... But are they available anywhere for the LCP?
Heres what I'm talking about: Smith&Wesson M&P | XGRIP
I'm wanting the factory stock in the gun during carry but have the 10rd with the grip mod as a spare...
Has anyone seen anything like this?

Doesn't a 10 round mag negate the LCP's main function of being highly concealable?

Just my opinion but after 4 years with a LCP as both primary and backup carry, I think it is best to carry extra ammo and bypass the extended magazines. The LCP is one of the up close and personal pistols and best suited for personal defense where only a few shots may fired to stop the threat. If you feel you may encounter a situation where a number of shots would be fired (and who really knows this ahead of time) I would look for a G26/G27 or comprable pistol. The XD40 comes to mind.

I would think that if anyone needed an extra three rounds in an LCP during a gunfight ... that person would be in serious, serious, trouble.
Matter of fact, anything more than BANG, BANG BANG ... and then running away and calling for help - and the shooter is probably going to be in serious trouble.

I have extended ten round magazines for my Kel Tec P3T and also North American Arms Guardian. I prefer to carry each with the extended Magazines and have no problem concealing them with the extended Magazines. The extended magazine makes them more comfortable to shoot also especially the NAA Guardian. Unknown why they have not come out with the extended Mag's for the Ruger lcp.

I have the promag ten round mag. Its length makes it a nice spare mag bc I can grab it easily. I have never seen a sleeve online but live without it. My ten rounder functions well

buy small, make tall
im sure there is a logic.....
its generally the butt thats hard to hide ( note to self--rephrase)
so its a trade off: short, slim and fewer shots vs
slim and long and more shots but harder to hide
or short and fat ( see note) and more rounds.
cause they make something for everyone, many will throw lots of money at finding whats 'percect'
vs whats darn good and most often--good enough.
good enough that is for those willing to practice enough.

Never understood the thought process of putting extensions on a compact gun.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

The longer mags make sense as a reload/spare mag. In that situation, there is no concern about concealment. The cat is out of the bag, so to speak.
I don't know about others, but I was always trained to reload after a situation was resolved - just in case it wasn't.
Think about it. You have 6+1 in your LCP. You fire...you're not sure how many shots. You can see you have a round in the chamber. Do you stand there, as a possibly hostile crowd gathers, with only maybe 1 or 2 shots in your gun as you wait for the police to arrive? Or do you reload, just in case?
Back to the OPs question - I have not seen a sleeve for the extended mags for the LCP. Sounds like a business opportunity...
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

It's a little off topic ... but I just got back from the range where I shot the heck out of a buddy's Taurus TCP and I actually liked it better than my LCP. He had some ten round mags for it and they functioned fine and seemed to fit that little pistol better than I can imagine an extra four rounds in an LCP mag.

.. people that don't get it.. I'm SURE.. are not carrying a back up mag (or three) for their primary carry. RIGHT?? RIGHT?? So... being that most ultra-concealable autos are of limited capacity relative to other autos... wouldn't you carry a backup mags with more capacity than the standard mag? I do.

I carry the P-238 with the seven round mag. The little extension on the 7 round mag makes this little .380 a better gun. The standard mag is 6 round so you don't gain much in firepower but it makes a lot better grip.

Yep, when I carry my XD9sc, I carry it with the 10 round flush magazine. I also carry one or two of the 16 round mags with the grip extensions for my reloads. No sense in carrying 10 round reloads.
