First, Ruger markets the LCP as a "carry" pistol. To me, and most everyone else judging from the comments on this board, a carry pistol is virtually useless if it isn't immediately ready for action so why market it as a carry gun if it cannot be carried with one in the pipe.
Second, Ruger lists the gun's capacity as 6+1. Why the +1 if not to have it ready for action.
With this said, I don't discount the possibility that any firearm may fire if dropped. The LCP is NOT listed on the approved list for sales in California but I don't know if that is because it failed the drop test or for some other reason. I also note that NO Kel-Tec pistols are on the California list. Personally, as small and light weight as the LCP is, I don't believe the firing pin could generate enough energy to fire without a full hammer drop, but I'm not going to start dropping mine to test it out.
