    Default Ruger LCP .380? Anyone

    Acquired a LCP .380 Ruger in trade so far so good Very first steps I took was polishing Feed Ramp gave the front sight a Testors Florescent Orange I know not a "Precision" gun helps fast acquisition for us old eyes, Surprised and Liking it for just what it is a pocket go to for areas restrictive on what I can carry. Used my NAA .22 mag exclusive for those but finding this .380 a joy for carry also. Grant it it does not beat my FNX .40 S/W 14 round mags. But as a concealable no peek pocket with holster It will at least get me to the FNX in the truck if need be. I guess anyone else carrying the LCPs or LCCRs

    Awesome congrats on the pocket pistol. I have a Taurus spectrum 380 for my pocket pistol. Very easy to conceal.

    LCP is still a popular backup gun in these parts....affordable and the ruger name behind it....officers tend to like them.,,

    only problem i have seen is inadvertent mag release from the pocket draw on a rare occasion on the firing line.....

    Nice pistols but my hand is so big, the slide sometimes cuts between the thumb and fore finger. No quick acquisition for me as I have to be careful as to hand placement on grip. It is a small pistol.

    This^^^......I've been carrying the LCP for the last six month as a backup, my EDC is a G17 with one spare mag.

    Couple things...

    The inadvertent mag release thing has happened once, exactly three days ago while "shopping" with my wife. I didn't know it was a issue until Deputy's post. It did seem odd and I wrote it off with a added mental note.

    Digging a pocket pistol out, is neither smooth or fast.....Honestly I'm not sure why I keep carrying it.

    Mine is a decent little shooter. I've shot it out to 40yrds and it will "mostly" stay on a USPSA target.....barely more or less.

    It's a get off me and get away gun.....certainly not something you wanna be in shoot out at Walmart with.

    Good little pistols and pretty dang accurate for what it is with no sights. No laser groupings at 20' though still pretty accurate. I have one and I use it for deep concealment or for s back up firearm. I purchased it long with the Crimson Trace laser the same day of purchase. Not bad. I installed a heavier recoil spring though why I did this I'm not sure now. Thing runs great though.

    Look to the Ruger +1 magazines if you want. I replace the two which were sent with the LCP with the Ruger +1's for carry. These r pretty much the same length when put side by side with the pinky extension (bit shorter just nothing to talk of - bout an1/8" if that) though you get a much better grip seeing it fills up the empty space the pinky extension doesn't. Plus lets not forget the extra round. These work great in my LCP n when I get the money I would like to get one more.

    My LGS has a used one in for 165.00 OTD. Looks like it don't have much wear on it. Hmmm. He also has an SR 22 for 295.00. Going to be up that way Friday. So who knows what might happen.

    So far knock on wood no issues for what it is pocket back up seems to do nice Mag Release (YET) for me I tend to wear baggier clothing orange testors on front sight has made a difference shot grouping is tighter lets say 7-10 yards from 3 to 3.5 inches more like 2.5 to 2.75 not a HUGE difference with these lil guns more so needing shot placement I`ll take it Snappy yes not unmanageable had a Kel tech 3AT was worse on recoil or perceived recoil. Will admit not an everyday shooter, but overall reliable so far more accurate than I originally thought (spray and Pray) can actually hit man sized target chest area at 7-10 yards leathality mmmm debatable definitely can cut some distance.

    Ruger has the LCP and the LC 380. The LCP 380 does not exist. Not to be mean but seeing that gets old since many people make that mistake and when I was trying to get parts for my mom's LC 380 people kept sending us boxes with LCP 380 on them with parts that fit my dad's LCP. Mislabeling and misunderstanding made that whole process way more difficult than it needed to be.

    I think you are referring to the LC 380 which the gen 2 is a pretty nice gun. The gen 1 like my mom's has a pretty atrocious trigger but I bet the gen 2s are a lot of fun to shoot. If you meant the LCP that is great gun that I even thought about getting for myself. Fun to shoot and very concealable.

    Nice trade. I switch it up between different carry guns. Depends on location and activities, smallest is a spectrum 380 my biggest is a 1911.
