    I like their looks, but I think I'd wait until they have been around for a year or two...let potential problems be worked out...

    Got mine already, and love it, but I see the price is starting to come down a bit!

    Talking North to Augusta

    Thanks, WoodLark...
    I'm gonna call 'em Monday morning and see if it's still there. The drive from Charleston to Augusta is quite scenic, especially knowing I have a new pocket heat-maker for the trip home!

    I thought the first 8,000,000 LCP's were already sold and paid for just waiting on shipment. How can anyone have one in stock available to the public for list price?

    I did see one in a gunshop Friday but it had a sold sticker on it. I am going to wait until the new wears off and we get some unbiased reports about it before I trade my P3AT in on an unknown just so I can have the latest model. Early reports I read said that they were even able to duplicate the smiley problem, from the P3AT to the LCP.

    FN1910,
    Pardon my ignorance if it is common knowledge, but what is the smiley problem to which you refer?

    There is no smiley issue with the LCPs. It does chew up brass, if you have one of the early release models, before they modified productoin and the new ones don't have any issues.

    Smileys

    This article explains it pretty well but basically it is the feed ramp hitting the bullets causing a "smile" in the nose of bullets. I don't know how much of a problem it really is and I haven't checked my P3AT to see if I get them or not. I just know I have had the first problem with mine feeding anything I have put through it.

    Picked it up...

    I drove up to Augusta and bought the Ruger LCP from Guns and Things...Thanks again, WoodLark. Very nice guys and quick transaction.

    Shot the little piece on the way home. Fits the pocket-heat bill perfectly: accurate, reliable (75 Blazers @95g) and mucho concealable.

    I'm gonna search this forum, but my only problem with the LCP is the slide-hold open. What's the secret to getting it to catch?

    I found that it just takes a little practice. Assuming you are a righty, use your right thumb while holding the slide open with your left hand. It is hard when it's new, but I've been doing it for practice every night for a few weeks.

    I admit the lock should have been a little more pronounced, but it just take a little practice, and maybe a fingernail until you get the hang of it.

    Odd slide hold open

    Jon,
    Thanks...I used a small screwdriver until my thumbnail grows back in. Glad it works. Nice little gun!

    Yeah, the are nice, I've bought a couple of guns from them. If they had the LCP when I bought my P3AT, I would have bought it instead. Was looking at a Ruger P345 there Saturday, but ended up buying a Bersa Thunder 45 elsewhere.

    Enjoy your LCP!
