    Ruger 380 lcp

    I just bought my wife a new lcp 380. We put 30 rounds thru it. She loves it. It is small enough for her to pocket carry.

    I wanted to get her the 9 but she wanted the smaller gun. At least she will carry it.

    Her other gun is a Taurus .40. She shoots all of my guns. From My .45 to 12 gauge to AR15.
    After she first shot my AR she said why cant all guns be this simple.

    I'd recommend Hornady Critical Defense for the LCP. Very good quality gun, good choice.

    +1 on this one. Have owned an LCP for over a year IMHO it can't be beat for concealability. I carry it when the weather is HOT which has been often lately for Wisconsin. Shorts and a T-shirt IWB with a Ramora works for me.

    Could not agree more. The LCP is a stable platform. I love mine. fire a few round into a wet, thick, phonebook and with the afore mentioned ammo, look at the results.

    Beware... Negative coments are sure to follow...

    I love mine, extremely concealable. Get the cheap Hogue grip and cut it to size, adds quite a bit of comfort and helps me hold onto the little bugger better.

    I carry my Gen 1 LCP, I mean my KelTec P3AT every where. At least you know she will be armed most of the time.

    After one problem in the first couple of magazines, mine has been trouble free ever since with everything I've put in it, including Hornady CD. I can't remember if that initial problem was a stovepipe, feed failure, or what. Since I've had no problems since, I'm convinced it was a matter of breaking in a new gun, and I'm quite comfortable carrying it.

    I've switched to Ranger T, just because I like Ranger T's. The main thing, in my opinion, is to establish reliability with any ammo in your gun, and become proficient as possible with it.

    All of my hand guns are loaded with hornady critical defense.

    I might just buy myself a Lcp.

    I just bought my second LCP. I love pocket pistols and have a P32, LCP, S&W BG380, and Sig P238. But for pocket carry the LCP shines above the rest.

    I like my LCP, it's an easy remedy to be armed all the time. Better guns available, but it is what it is.

    BTW, the LCP pocket carried in a holster, will collect much pocket lint and some dirt and dust.........at least for me it does, I work outdoors a lot. I know from two at-home tests, if it gets dirty it will have a high likelihood of FTF or FTE By all means, Keep 'em clean.
