    Dropped LCP, Shot Toilet. Toilet didn't make it.

    Be careful with the LCP's. My brother and I both carry them. My brother dropped his, in the restroom of his Police department. It struck the tile floor rear of the slide/butt first. Discharged and shot a toilet.

    So... that's one for accidental discharge.

    Thanks for the info. In my OP I emphasized that my LCP passed the drop test in a "one-time test"......muzzle dropping first. In your scenario it fell muzzle up. I'd love to duplicate your brother's experience, but I still like my LCP and don't want to drop it anymore. Now, however if someone will send me their LCP for more drop tests I'll give it a thorough workout for a few thousand drops.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Good information ppk, while we never intend on dropping our carry handgun, it does happen once in a blue moon. Good to know it takes a lot to cause the LCP to discharge if it does it at all.
    God bless our troops!

    I have a better option. The department took the LCP, so they could test it and see if they can recreate an accidental discharge. If they can then officers will no longer be allowed to carry the LCP, on or off duty. I assume it will take a while, but when I hear something I will post it.

    The the recall took care of the issue years ago.

    Funny how when the LCP first came out, it was the darling and new item to get in the gun world, then drop problem happened and the recall, then it was bad-mouthed for a little while, then it was forgotten by owners or never known by new buyers. Just sharing my observation. God Bless

    I usually pocket carry my LCP. But, I do occasionally carry it AIWB and I've actually forgotten I was carrying mine a couple of times and it dropped out on the restroom floor. (It's scary every time it has happened.)

    My LCP is the only gun I have dropped so far. I butter-fingered it while in condition 0 (it has no external safety) from about waist height onto a concrete floor. I don't recall what it landed on, but it did bounce around a little, and I was shocked that it didn't have any marks on it afterward. I was more relieved that I was able to refrain from trying to catch it.

    Is the forum getting ready for Halloween or something? Lots of zombie threads here of late...

    Be without fear in the face of your enemies.
    Stand brave and upright, that the Lord may love thee.
    Speak the truth always, even if it means your death.
    Protect the helpless and do no wrong.
