    Safety barrel for Ruger LCP?

    Does anyone know of a training/safety barrel for a Ruger LCP? I have one for my Glock 19 that's made by 5.11 and I would like to have one for my LCP.

    Thanks!

    This is what I am looking for: Amazon.com: 5.11 Training Barrel, Yellow, Glock 17 22 31: Sports & Outdoors

    Does anyone know of something similar for the LCP?

    For training in basic handling, retention, disarm, you could always go with a Blue Gun (or similar). Works well, assuming you don't need a functional firearm.

    Plastic pillars such as what are used in cake stands might do the trick, on the cheap: click.

    Or, you could go the route of custom fabrication through a plastics shop: ie, Faulkner Custom Plastics, in Miami FL.

    Bummer that those $15 "barrels" aren't made for a wider range of pistols. Might consider contacting the company that makes those, to see if they'd make a small run of them. Can't be too tough to do.

    Midwayusa has one for a 9mm pistol but no 380.

    Mako Safety Rod Barrel Block Pistol 9mm Luger Polymer Orange

    Isn't 380 bullet the same diameter as 9mm?

    Thanks for the ideas. I thought about a blue gun but I need the gun to feel real and be functional for the training I'm doing. I might reach out to Faulkner and see if they can come up with something. Thanks again!

    For $3.50 I'm willing to try it out. I will report back. Thanks!

    I forgot to report back. The Mako product works perfectly! I have been using/abusing it 2x a week in training and it functions flawlessly!
