    Just Picked Up My LCP -- Photo Intensive

    The day I heard the report about the new Ruger LCP, talked to my dealer and told him I wanted one. He hadn't even heard of them at that point so I told him I wanted the first one in his store. They called me today and had just gotten the first one in so off to the store I go. Fit and finish seems very good -- sounds fairly solid for the type of gun it is. Yes, it does have a slide lock but no, it won't hold back the slide on an empty mag, you have to lock it yourself and it's a tiny little thing. I found myself having to push it up with my thumbnail, but at least it's there. They also moved the mag catch just enough that Kel-Tec magazines won't lock in place. Would have been nice if they would use Kel-Tec mags since I have several of those. Same rudimentary sights just like the Kel-Tec. I have family in town today and have to go out of town tomorrow so earliest I'll be able to get to the range will be Wednesday. I'll post a range report as soon as I get a chance to shoot the critter. Now for some pictures.

    I'd be interested in how it compares to your KelTec

    Nice CV!
    Does the finger grip extension from the Kel-Tec (Pearce or Bersa, wherever you got it) fit on the Ruger LCP mag?

    Looks like the fit and finish might be a little better than the KT's. Since you have both, I think a head to head range report is in order . What's the price difference between the two?

    I think the Ruger looks more refined. Can't wait for the range report. What did the LCP run if you don't mind to tell. May need one of these when they get easier to come by. Congrats

    I was wondering if the Prescott factory was going to make these. Think I will try and order one and tell the wife I'm just trying to support a local business.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Awesome, is this the first one posted here? I can't wait to hear the live fire feedback. For now I'm sticking with my 442 but that could change...
