New From Dallas Texas
I am new to this form. Has being shooting from an year now and started carrying from a month now. Have M&P 9 which I carried but was too uncomfortable.
got a Ruger LCP after all the reviews. Cleaned it thoroughly and went to range and had shot around 40 rounds without issue but the problem started and bullet get stuck in barrel.
I cannot recycle it manually now.
Talked to Ruger support and sent back the gun. Let see what they have to say. Hope fully it will be ok.

Welcome from Wisconsin! I sure hope you get the problem with your Ruger resolved soon. Meanwhile get used to carrying your M&P so you don't go unarmed. A Police Officer friend of mine carries his duty M&P 40 off duty even though he has several smaller guns. He evidently figured out a way where it was comfortable & concealable. I think it was just a matter of changing holsters. I've seen him carry it IWB at the appendix & at his side at about 4:30. I wouldn't have seen it unless I was looking for it & he showed me.
Keep us updated on Ruger's customer service & how the problem was ultimately taken car of.

You didn't mention what kind of rig you carried the M&P in, but a quality holster AND a gun belt worthy of the name (not just a wide belt from the department store rack) will make a big difference in the ease of weapon carriage. And speaking of holsters, even pocket guns (your LCP) need and deserve 'em. Just ask here if you need guidance.
Pretty odd to get a bullet stuck in the barrel of your LCP unless you had a squib round, but those do occur. Ruger will make it right for you.

Welcome from Delaware. Ruger customer service is quite good, they should fix, or replace your gun.

Welcome from South Carolina...
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
