    Another LCP

    I wasn't going to post on the LCP because I think it has been reported on well over the past few months. However, I just took mine to the range for the first time since I picked it up, and I was very impressed with it.

    I owned a SW380 when they came out and I was very unhappy with it so I was leary about picking this one up. It shot beautifully!! Very low recoil and the accuracy was far better than I expected.

    The first few shots were just to feel recoil, not really trying for accuracy. It was point shooting and its accuracy is what I expected for point shooting. Once I started sighting...I was thinking I was lucky, but they kept landing in the same spot.

    I would recommend this gun to anyone looking for the pocket pistol.

    I hope you enjoy it. I know I do mine and I have been carrying it everyday for a few weeks. It is very easy to conceal and handle.

    I enjoy mine now that all the bugs are worked out of it. I'm amazed at the accuracy of this little point and shoot pocket gun. I still need to get a good pocket holster and then it will be my everyday summer carry.

    That's due to slower bullet speed and earth rotation , by the time the round gets to the target the earth rotation has moved the target that much

    That is a BS answer. The Coriolis Effect is not what is making his bullet go to the left. Nice try though.

    I don't know if mine goes left or not...I can't see the tiny sights! I'm good for a point & shoot COM shot at close range with mine.

    I thought you were serious... Maybe I should go to sleep and stop reading these forums so late.

    I thought you were serious for a second there too. Lol.

    And those little pocket guns are great for summer carry or back up carry. Congrats on the great gun!

    Oh c'mon guys... I NEVER take Dukalmighty seriously! Just kidding, of course, but I do appreciate the gravity of your answer.

    Also, I think your choice of the LCP is great. Have had mine for a few months now, and love it.

    I can tell when I shoot mine it is not the most accurate gun, my first shot patterns where all high, but they may come from the lack of a front sight or at least not much of one. But aimed just a hair lower and I can hit fine now that I adjusted to it. Overall I would say I am still impressed with the Ruger LCP for the price. Feels way better build quality then a Kel Tec! Kel Tecs feel like plastic junk to me.

    It is interesting that so far I have heard or read very little negative feed back on this gun. That is not the norm for a small gun like this and certainly not the norm for a Ruger gun in my experience.

    I am intrigued enough about this gun that I now find myself thinking of getting one of my own in the not too distant future.
