    I've got a date tonight...

    with a little gal named Elsie Pea.

    I was out running some errands, and had a hunch, so I stoppoed by my local Sportsman's Warehouse... low and behold, they received 5 Ruger LCP's this morning! I immediately asked for the background check paperwork and got one reserved!

    CBI is running about 3 hours right now to complete the checks, so I'm gonna go pick up my girl tonight! I'm so stoked! The serial is 370-69xxx! Merry X-mas to me!

    Unfortunately they are completely out of .380 ACP ammo... so it may be a day or 2 before she gets to go bang.

    Congrats! I had a Kel-tec P3AT and ended up selling it. I should've kept it. Contrary to popular opinion, my S&W 340 just isn't a pocket gun and more often than not ends up on my ankle. Maybe I'll pick up an LCP for Xmas

    Make sure you check to see if Ruger has already fixed the drop-fire issue. They've been recalling LCPs with a 370-XXXX serial number. Here's information on it:

    Good luck!

    Congrats on the new gun. That really sucks about the ammo. Maybe you can pick up a box at a different place to tide you over...?

    Already did! It's a post recall weapon. Thanks for the heads up though!

    Congratulations on the new gun. I have two Rugers and love both of them.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Congratulations

    I cc my LCP everyday. I have one of the models that has to be sent back. That's not so bad, but I'm going to have "empty pocket syndrome" for a week or so. I'll fill it with something else I have around here.
    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.

    Our local Sportman's Warehouse has been out of handgun ammo for over a month. They have very few handguns in stock. I guess everyone is in panic mode right now with Obama coming in. Congrats on your new date - I wish our local store would get some of those beauties in. I was told by a manger the Sportsman's Warehouses were recently sold to another investor(s) and this is what has hindered stock. Let us know how it shoots. I like the new Critical Defense .380 ammo - if you can find it.
