I had a lengthy conversation with a local gun dealer about the Ruger LCP. This is what he said.
- Kel-Tec did NOT patent their design which is why Ruger was able to copy it.
- Ruger made it better and prettier.
- He has none.
- They are backordered by 100,000 units.
- He thinks the wait time may be up to a year.
- I might be able to get one at a gun auction site but pay a premium.
- The street price is about $300, but because of the demand, I might be able to get one on the auction sites for about $350.
Now you know more than I do.
