My best friend and I each bought a Ruger LCP on Monday, added Crimson Trace laser Guards to them, and field tested them this morning. We each shot 120 rounds:

100 Rounds Winchester USA
100 Rounds Blazer Brass
20 Rounds Federal Personal Defense
20 Rounds Winchester Elite

End result, 240 rounds fired with 100% reliability. The lasers work great. We zeroed them at 10 yards. Trigger pulls are high, but that's life. The LCP's are back-up pistols, not competition shooters. Ron and I are happy with our purchases.:wavey:

I often carry an LCP during the summer in my left front pocket to back up the Glock on my hip. Winter time I trade it out for an LCR. Congrat's on your new BUG Danny.

you will find yourself carring it more and more as you leave the big gun at home. I have been very pleased with mine

I may carry my LCP, but I don't leave the bigger gun at home. Danny, I know you like Galco pocket holsters, but take a look at the TUFF pocket holster, I use one for my LCP and LCR.

Right now I'm using the Crimson Trace pocket holster in the left front pocket, but yes, I do like Galco Horsehide.

all you need to do now is get the 13# wolf recoil spring for it. Tames just about every bit of the jump from the LCP and actually makes it a LOT of fun to shoot

I have own a LCP for about a year and near have had any problems at all.

Danny, it's a great BUG. I bought mine in 2009 and recently added a Crimson Trace to it. I carry mine more than I though I would and always in my DeSantis pocket holster.

I like the Nemesis pocket holsters and have one for the LCP without laser. I'll probably get one for the laser attached.

Anyone have any issues with your LCP. I bought mine at a gun show and when I got to the range I would get malfunctions non stop. had to send it back to ruger and they changed the slide. Some people told me it was the extractor that wasn't grabbing the back of the spent casing. It works well now. No issues to date.

Is it safe to assume that there is no loss of reliability with the heavier spring? Would this be true with most factory ammunition? Thanks for the advice!

What is your opinion of the DeSantis Super Fly holster?

I have owned an LCP for three years. No malfunctions and my only pocket pistol. A great back up weapon and it is loaded with Hornady Critical Defense ammo.

for the price,the lcp is probably the best pocket pistol available..i have about 400rds through mine,not a single failure..

Okay, I'll bite. Why the left front pocket, assuming that the Glock and your better hand are on the right?

Nothing but good words for the LCP; mine has been stone reliable thru' a bunch of ammo (700rds?) without a bobble. I'd like a better trigger, but it is what it is and it works all the time.

Mine fits perfectly for the purpose for which it was intended. Cheers.

Just a wild guess- if his right hand is damaged, he can easily draw with his left. Do I win a prize?!!!

WINNER!!!!!

BTW- I have an LCP with just under 1000 rounds. Only had one issue due to a "limp wrist" during some up close, slap that trigger as fast as I could shooting.

Its a great piece for what it is, I too have the CT unit on mine. A MUST for that pistol IMO....

Edit: Wow, just noticed I brought this thread back from the dead! Sorry about that....

I just pcked up another LCP last week. The NRA camo edition.

Also, of someone is struggling with you, trying to take control of your gun.

If you fall on top of your firearm on your right side before you can draw you can access the BUG on the other side of your body...?

Or if your right hand is incapable of drawing due to incapacitation...?

The LCP factory recoil spring is 9#. Wolff sells a pack with an 11,12 and 13# spring. Get that and decide which is best for you. Of course the heavier the spring, the harder it is to rack the slide, but the heavier spring does seem to reduce felt recoil. I have the 11# spring in mine right now and it is 100% reliable.

I was testing a Diamondback DB9 for a friend today (a 9mm almost the same size & just slightly heavier than an LCP). I did some comparisons with the LCP.

The LCP definitely shot smaller groups and shot to point-of-aim better. Even with the miniscule stock sights, I shot an 18 yard 8" steel plate (steel challenge type) then knocked down a 28 yard shot on a 8" plate rack; two shots - two hits. Can't ask much more from a pocket pistol.
