What About the Risk of Discharge with One in the Pipe?
I own an LCP-C, manufactured within the last 12 months. I like the weapon very much: fires well (no failures in 120 rounds of jacketed and hollow points). I like the look of it, and it holsters well w/an IWB nylon.

What I've yet to see is discussion of the risk of the weapon discharging w/o squeezing the trigger. What is anyone's history/knowledge of incidents re: "accidental" firing? In my heart, I want to believe it's OK to keep one jacked. I also see the Ruger website/owner's manual that cautions having the weapon in a firing condition unless the shooter is ready to shoot.
Comments are welcome. Thanks.
