    My new gun :D

    Just bought the LCP yesterday, have yet to shoot it but I am very satisfied with it. Unbelievably easy and comfortable to conceal, and have no doubts about carrying it as my primary on occasions.

    I love my LCP and here's a word of advice.

    Practice a lot with it.

    It's greatest strength of being small and so easily concealable is also the LCP's greatest weakness in that it is a little bugger to figure out and become accurate with it.

    Yeah I'm going to, need to buy some range ammo and wait for the range to get fixed. Neither of them have been shot yet so I'm going to devote a day to shooting them, hopefully next week.

    I love the LCP. My wife and I each have one. I have found, it seems to be more accurate in rapid fire as opposed to slow deliberate aimed fire.

    Being so small to hold on to, I find my groups opening up on the target if I try to hold it tight and steady in slow fire. Get a good solid two handed grip on it and let it rip rather quick and my groups tighten up. Likewise with a one hand grip.

    Thanks for the tips. I also love that they included a mag extension... I can fit 2 fingers on it now! :O

    Not sure how anyone can feel ultimately confident in a sidearm before even firing a shot through it. It conceals well is one thing, but the big picture is what you want to see. Hey......if it's all good, then good for you. I'm just sayin'....never bet on a race horse before you've seen it in action. Comfort and conceal-ability are only pages in the book. Each and every page is important for the story, but the ending comes in the last few pages of the book. Short stories and novels alike. 47 pages or 437 pages. I'm more interested in how the story ends than how it began. That's just me. I've been down a lot of roads and luckily I haven't spent much time chasing those that turn into rocky roads. Maybe it's because I don't go down unknown roads unless I know I can get out. 4WD helps making turns onto unknown roads just to find out. 4Cyl and front wheel drive just can't get everywhere you might want to go. Same thing with pistols and self defense. Once the word 'comfortable' comes up it raises a red flag with me. That's just me. How many have been taken while feeling 'comfortable' at home? When you're comfortable.....you're easily put down. If you want to be aware always....you'll never feel comfortable. This is the way things should be, and it's a rule of the universe. Once you're in tune, you'll know what I mean.

    I could restate it if you'd like. I feel more comfortable carrying it compared to being unarmed, not to mention I carry more than just a handgun, I looked at all the possible problem areas with them and found nothing wrong with it, there are no burs or anything to cause a jam, did a thorough cleaning of it. It is not the ONLY thing I rely on, I carry OC spray, a knife, and have a lot of MA training. Those who rely on only their firearm 100% are fools...

    Also, I never said "ultimately confident" now did I?
