    Two new members from Oregon - Ruger LCP's

    Zach and Holly here from Oregon! We're two special education teachers, age 26, and do a lot in the outdoors -- we picked up two of the new Ruger LCP's for carry, and just received our CHL's. I grew up with guns, but never considered concealed carry. We decided to start carrying after months of outdoor expeditions and "half-serious" talks about different "what-if" situations. Well, a few of those "what-if" situations began to seem more and more likely, so we decided to excerise our right to carry while we still can. We're pretty liberal thinkers and work in the school, but have decided that gun ownership and right to carry for actual law-abiding citizens is a right that shouldn't be taken away.

    Our little .380's -- if anyone is interested, I can take some video or shots of these guns fieldstripped -- we haven't shot them yet.

    I'm sure this has been mentioned countless times, but I'd love to hear how some of you .380 owners conceal carry.

    Wow, thanks for all the welcomes!
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    Welcome, from the Catskill Mountains of New York State! I carry my Ruger LCP in a fanny-pak, with a special compartment. Very light, very easy, and everyone wears them around here, so it's inconspicuous.

    Hey, Z&H. Climb aboard ... the discussions are great.

    More Oregonians, that's what we need! Well, more Oregonians carrying, that's for sure.

    Nice looking pair of LCP's, there! You'll have to do a "range report" with some photos, after you've flogged them the first couple of times. It'll be nice to hear of actual experiences with these new pistols.

    Right now, we have the Golden Sabres as the first 4 rounds, and regular FMJ as the last two. I've heard a couple times that it's good to have your first rounds as max stopping power, followed by a couple FMJ's for max penetration after the impact (as the GS likely won't go in and out). I'm sure many think that that is total bunk--but I'd love to hear opinions anyway...

    This chart was interesting, most of you have probably seen it; GS looks good according to this guy's test, but they were also the only defensive round I could find locally in stock.

    JonInNY, did you have a hard time finding the LCP? How long have you had it? There's not a store here that is able to get them; we got our's online.

    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    Welcome from Montana.


    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.
