    Recently I read an article where 12,000 rounds had been run through the Ruger SR9 with -0- failures. After 2,000 rounds on my Ruger P95 I have had no failures.
    If tests on the LCP are equivalent, the P3AT will be toast. Also, a failure to fire or a jam on any pistol is disconterting, and it always takes a little time for one to re-build one's confidence in the pistol after such a failure.

    'Where online or in the St. Louis area can I order/preorder the Ruger LCP? On a related issue, Bass Pro Shops will not carry anything with less than a 3 1/2 inch barrel (I was told today). Doesn't seem like they support the right to carry. She told me they only carry sporting weapons. If anyone knows different, I would like to hear. If not, Cabelas is looking better all the time. Also, do you know the best place to order a Beretta PX4 SC when it finally is available?

    Right now, none. If specs are true it's heavier by 12% (22% fir my 1st Gen AT's 7.6oz). Not to mention the fact that one here has fired one but, they are ouber reliable because they are made by Ruger (Not a company known for compact pistols, mind you). It will be interesting to read the range reports when they hit the shelves. Weight alone takes the Ruger off my list.

    That review from gunblast.com posted up above is a pretty good article. I might be getting one as my first carry gun and that mini-ammo review with it was very informative.

    i also paid for one friday,, 289$ out the door. they said approx. may 1st delivery,, he also said that kel=tec had sued ruger over design,, ruger had to change 16 parts,,, this probably ain't gospel,,just what my gunshop owner said. this pistol ,hopefully, will have the famous ruger reliability, i also have a p32 that has absolutlely no reliability problems that i carry on my motorcycle,,,want a little more bang...i agree with you guys too,,ruger will knock a hole in kel-tec's sales. if you read the kel-tec forums though, they love them, and have found them to be really reliable,,i would'nt hesitate to buy a .380, based on my .32.

    I will be getting one. My Kel-tec would drop the magazine to the floor everytime I shot it. Needless to say I traded it in pretty fast. I didnt even think it was worth the hassle of sending it in for a repair. This Ruger may fit my need for a pocket gun!!

    Plus, I have never owned a Ruger.

    Is it just me or did anybody notice that in the video, the slide never locked back?

    It's manual. You initiate it after pulling the slide back.

    I prefer an auto that "locks back" on the last round so I can have an easily identifiable "metric" of "it's time to replace your magazine" and that's why I like the KT P32.

    Not only that but the relative "kick" from such a small platform is not something I would look forward to. The Bersa is about the smallest I would do the .380.

    In a real gun fight... you already have a lot of other "issues" to worry about so why add handling something that is so small that you may have issues with placing multiple shots in a reasonably tight pattern.

    At a gun shop I frequent ... they have LOTS of Glock 27 for the same reason

    People "think" they can handle a .40 in such a small platform and then find out during practice that they don't like it. I would bet they would have had a much better experience by starting on the 23 instead.

    I will place my order Tuesday. My dealer doesn't have any yet, but he is hoping to get three in the next couple of months. I want one by summer.

    I already have the two PPK/S's in 380 and reload all my practice ammo. At least I won't need another set of dies with this one.

    I just spoke to Joe in Ruger's customer service about recommended ammo. He says the LCP is NOT rated for +P ammo. According to him, every brand they tried in stock power feed perfectly. He recommends either CorBon Powerball or Federal HydraShoks for carry.

    Who's gonna be the first to post "I got mine"? They've shipped a bunch already.
