I am a Ruger fan and was excited to purchase a LCP. Had some issues and after a lot of trial and error, sold it back to my good friend (FFL) and got a Kahr PM9. Its a bit larger and heavier but its a real gun. IMO the LCP in .380 just can not stand up to the caliber with a such small frame and lots of very small plastic parts. Maybe this can be said for other offerings also (KT) and some have had no issues to date with thier guns but there have been far to many problems reported to feel comfortable carring one of these IMO. After Ruger works out the bugs we shall see.
