    Meet the Little Gun that Could HD VIDEO

    You got to love the little Ruger LCP. If you are unable to carry something larger, or need a backup pistol, the "Elsie Pea" will do the trick. I had a good work out with my LCP at the gun club and this video features some discussion about the LCP with shooting and functional accuracy demonstrations. Terrific little guy.

    How many of you guys carry an LCP? What's your favorite range ammo and carry ammo? Mine performed flawlessly with Critical Defense, but had a few fail to extracts with Blazer brass.

    Pleased to report that my Fail to Extract (FTE) issues yesterday were definitely ammo related. I put over 100 round of Winchester Wallyworld through it and not a single FTE. Phew.

    I had no intention of becoming a Ruger fan, I mean, I was just indifferent but I seem to keep buying Rugers:

    10/22
    LCP
    SR22
    SR1911
    New Vaquero

    I guess I am a Ruger fan now.

    We have 3 LCPs in the family - two for me and one for my wife. All are fed with WWB 95 gr FMJ - flat points.

    Ruger stands behind their products. Nowadays, my daily carry is a LCR .38 (with CT Lasergrips) and a LCP.

    I guess I'm a Ruger fan, too:

    Sp101 (sold)
    LCP x 3
    LCR
    Mk II (sold)
    M77 Mk II .223 bolt rifle (sold)
    M77 Mk II .22 LR bolt rifle
    10/22
    Mini 14 Ranch rifle
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I must say I am totally impressed with Ruger Customer Service.

    I opened up my SR22 yesterday and noticed that somehow Ruger managed to install both stock base plates on the mags ... backwards. No problem, since I was going to put the optional mag extension, which comes with each mag, on each one. So, I managed to launch the spring sleeve out into my backyard on one of the magazine.

    Aw....crud.

    So, I call Ruger.

    Nice guy answered, told him my problem, as a result he sent me TWO replacements. Said, "Let's just say one is preemptive in case you launch one again."

    I then told him how I managed to eject my 1911 firing pin into the backyard when I first detailed stripped my slide. He said, "Wow, sounds like we have another parts depot in your back yard."

    : )

    Ruger has a very loyal customer here.

    I love my LCP. My LCR has replaced it for my EDC but it is nice to always have the option of going back to ole Elsie.

    I load mine up with Winchester PDX1

    I see an LC9 in my future!

    I wanted the LCP because:

    (1) Small.
    (2) Small.

    and...

    (3) Small.

    I definitely believe that you should always carry something larger, when/if you can.

    My EDC, when I can, is a Glock 26 with Critical Duty JHP, mag extension and an extra magazine, or two.

    But....wow...you got to love the good old Elsie Pea.

    It is with me all the time. [Legal note: Where it is legal to carry it.]

    I alternate between a S&W 642 and my LCP for pocket carry.

    I use Critical Defense and they've worked flawlessly in my gun.

    The only problems I've had was when I was shooting Tula Ammo rounds through it. They were filthy and my little LCP jammed like crazy with them.

    Tula: what can you say? Cheap. Russian. Dirty. Unreliable. CHEAP. CHEAP.

    'nuff said.

    Mine used to be very reliable. I considered it a little glock. I've run a lot of steel cased herters ammo from cabellas with out issue. lately it's developed an issue with the magazine follower some how actuating the mag catch. Every time the follower passes the cut out in the mag it pops out. One of these days I'll get around to sending it in to Ruger for now I just stick the 642 or pf9 in my pocket. I carried gold dots in it.

    Yup, give Ruger a call. Great customer service.

    I would never use cheapo steel case in any weapon I intend to use for self-defense, IMVHO, YMMV, FWIW, as always.
