    New LCP

    Just picked up a new LCP today, and was wondering what ammo people have found shoot well out of the Ruger, and also what holsters y'all have liked, I want a holster for pocket carry.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I carry mine in an Uncle Mikes pocket holster. I tried a cheap one from cheaper than dirt, but it was a little thick for my taste. I like the Uncle Mikes as it's thin enough to be comfortable, but it does conceal well.

    I carry my LCP with me everywhere... Even when I carry something larger.

    I have found my LCP to be amazingly accurate out to 15-yards... 6-inch group, free hand.

    I would highly recommend that you use Remington Golden Saber 102gr as a self-defense ammo. I have not found any independent tests to show any other ammunition beating it overall. Here are dozens of test links to chew on: KTOG Forum - Links to .380 Ammo tests

    I have 3 custom holsters that my wife crafted for me: between my chest and left arm, IWB and ankle.

    I use the new Hornady Critical Defense 90 gr. FTX, 1,000fps @ muzzle, 910 fps @ 50 yds. They are hard to find, but Midway got some in. I like the Desantis Nemesis holster.

    i got the p3at and i load it with 95 gr round nose ammo (ball ammo). in the 380 acp ball ammo is the best. go to the kel tec sites and you will see that a lots of 380 acp guys use ball ammo. i use the belt clip and a uncle mikes pocket holster size zero for small auto.

    Blinkstafoo1, besides DC, another great site mostly dedicated to the LCP is www. elsiepeaforum.com. I recommend checking it out, alot of info on Ammo accessories, and overall info, not to mention quite a few holster makers on their. Rob

    I also use a nemesis, good holster but a little thick. The only issue I have had with Miss Elisie is the mag release broke after I got my pinky extension floorplate after the first recall. Great little gun that I will continue to carry. I have no problems shooting tight groups out to 15 yards.
