Ruger® LCP® Compact Pistol
Perfect Pocket Gun
This is the perfect pocket gun. Reliable, shoots well, accurate enough to fill up the kill zone on a target at 15ft, and fits nice in the watch pocket of a pair of jeans. I put a hogue fitted grip sleeve on it and carry it with confidence! I find the recoil very managable.

Great Compact for CCW
I replaced a bulky 9mm that was carried as a CCW with the Ruger LCP .380. The LCP .380 is easily carried in the pocket of about anything and is vertically sang proof. I have used a mixture of various ammo and never once did it fail to fire or jam. Accuracy is amazing at 25'. No doubt one of the best CCW I have been privileged to own. To make the purchase even better. Sign up for the BassPro Shop MasterCard and get a nice price reduction. I did some research and found a good price comparison + MasterCard savings and bought the pistol for well under $300.

Great defense pistol
I shot on a military pistol team. This is by no means a match competitive pistol. However, it is very accurate. I had no trouble getting a tight pattern. I put fifty rounds in a tight 5 inch group. Yes it is a pull and shoot. But at a max of 30 feet, how can you miss.
Yes, trigger pull is long, but it did not affect my accuracy, especially in a rapid fire setting.
I have the crimson trace laser which I really like. The LCP is easy to field strip and clean.
It is small, which limits two hand shooting on the pistol. I adapted my two hand shooting, with my left hand under the right, instead of both on the pistol grip.
It is a rugged pistol and has the quality Ruger feel.

cute little pistol
Never thought I'd be praising a pocket pistol but oh well, yes this is a neat little gun. My usual small carry is a SIG P238 but as you know to carry "cocked and locked" though usually safe does leave one uneasy. I saw they had this Ruger little guy on sale and had to see what this pistol was all about. Research found that the Ruger LCP is the most concealed carried pistol by model. Humm..can't be too bad.
Purchased it on sale and found it to be a easy carry. No sights or safety or hammer to get caught on the holster, clothing, etc. The trigger pull is constant though long. This little guy fits nicely in my hand and fits great in my front pocket. Whats not to like. Makes the perfect Summer carry.
