Got my Ruger LCP with Lazermax and it's great. I like it better then Crimson because you can manually turn on and off the lazer and you get the full grip, no button like on crimson to get in your way or to accidentally go off. Put 100 rounds of winchester white box through it with no issues. Take down is simple and easy to clean. Mag release is indented unlike Kel-tech so you don't drop the mag while firing. The gun is the size of my wallet and is as thick as my cell phone (HTC Pure candy bar style). It does have a little kick but with the lazer I can group 8 inch shoots from 25 yards, and I'm not a very good shot! The problem is when I shoot I can only get two fingers on the grip not my pinky so it tends to jump up a little in my palm. So I needed a better grip and decided to look for one. I found a few options I could get an extended mag from Promag that has a 10 or 15 round clip but looks funny in the gun as it does not extend the butt (looks like a mag just hanging out the bottom). I also found a plus one foot for the mag that adds an extra bullet in the foot but heard that it does not come with a new spring for the mag resulting in some loading issues but does extend the butt. I then found a guy on[@] that sells a 1.5 inch foot for the mag that does not add a plus 1 (extra bullet) so it keeps the gun at 6+1 stock but extends the grip, so I ordered it. I love the new extension, I can get my whole hand on it now and it hardly adds any weight to the gun and still small enough to conceal. Now for the next issue the sights, they are very hard to see, they are low so not to catch on anything but are accurate. Most people have fixed this issue by 3 dots of nail polish (I opted for a hunters orange, two dots in the back and one up front) and WOW I can site the gun just fine now. The gun also does not have a last round slide hold open to know when your out of ammo, but I found that was no big deal (would have been a nice if Ruger would have included it). Also if you read about the recalls for the guns firing if dropped the new models are fixed and the old ones recalled and fixed at Rugers Expense (Ruger is made in USA and are stand up folks in my book). The gun also has no safety because the safety is built into the long trigger pull, so if you carry the gun get a holster that covers the trigger (I'm confident that it will not ascendantly go off but I also would not carry with one in the chamber JMO). All in all this is a super great gun smaller and lighter then the LC9 and nicer looking then the Kel-tech. I made the right choice for a home defense and CCW gun. There is a reason this is a top rated gun.

Everything about this pistol is great with one exception.... the triger. You pull and pull and then you pull some more after a while BANG. And you miss your target. I love Ruger but this one is a Dud but still better than S&W Bodyguard. I got a Beretta Nano and the trigger is not perfect but a big improvement over S&W Bodyguard and the LCP. I still love Ruger and S&W just not these two examples.

    Comments about Ruger LCP Handgun:

    After much deliberation on what to get for concealed carry, I chose the LCP because I was concerned about carrying a larger sized weapon. I knew I was much more likely to carry something smaller. I was a little hesitant after reading the reviews about the long trigger pull and small grips but bought it anyway figuring it did not need to be a pleasure to shoot....just needed to have it with me.
    Took it to the range and was pleasantly surprised. While the trigger pull was long I did not find it objectionable at all. In fact, after the first few shots, I didn't even notice it. I was switching back and forth between my 9mm and the LCP but still was not an issue. I also did not find the small grips to be a problem (average sized hands). I fired about 120 rounds with no issues and it was not uncomfortable for me. In fact the only issue was the sights. They are small and will need some paint for these 55+ eyes to help them stand out. Though I did not shoot it as well as my 9mm with better sights, I was still keeping a 5" circle at 7 yards. Should be good enough to get the job done until I can paint the sights. Overall I'm very happy with the LCP.

      • Self Defense

      Comments about Ruger LCP Handgun:

      I got this gun primarily for conceal carry. It fits this bill well. It is a very small gun that still fits in my big hands well. It can get almost lost in a pocket, and with cell phone case style and wallet-style cases availible, it has a variety of carry options. This gun is very light, but the .380 auto packs a thud. The trigger is a long-pull, but it needs to be due to the lack of a safety. This gun is purely for self defense, not the shooting range. This gun will suit you just fine if you find your life threatened. Dont expect huge accuracy. My SR9c felt like a brick while carrying, but I acutally forgot I was carrying this gun. If you want an everyday shooting range type gun, this isn't it. If you are looking for an easy to carry self defense gun, you've found it.

              You can buy rounds for about 36 cents each. Bascily a box of 50
              for about $18. That's on the .380.

            • A:

              Depends: I use Hornady Critical Defense, which is premium ammo (jacketed hollow-point) at about a buck a round. But I practice with cheap full-metal-jacket ammo running at about fifteen bucks for fifty rounds on average. In winter, I load the gun with FMJs instead of JHPs, for better penetration thru thick coats and such (the .380 round is on the weak side). Some say that certain rounds don't feed well with this gun but thus far, I've not had a problem. For carry, go American, even if the cost is higher...American stuff is more reliable in general. Test your carry ammo well, don't limp-wrist the gun, and keep it cleaned and lubed...as with all semi-autos, to maintain reliability.

              Shop carefully, as the price is all over the place. Generally though, you should be able to shoot at about 22 cents per round for FMJ 95 grain. Your best buy is going to be 1000 rounds at a time.

            • A:

              The sights have been greatly improved in recent months, making it much easier to aim. However, it is intended for very short range personal protection, which would typically be less than 50 feet.

            • A:

              The useful range is 50 feet. The round will travel farther, but most people cannot hold an aim point accurately at longer range.

              Answered on 4/8/2011 by Anonymous from None
            • A:

              Do you want to know the range, or the effective range? This weapon has very low profile sights that can be challenging re: target acquisition. Target shooting, I would say 50 feet. Defense (man-size target) shooting could possibly be extended to about 30 yards. However, the weapon is made for the classic defense range of 15 - 25 feet. Perfect CCW!! Another consideration when talking range is the foot-pounds of energy available at designated distances. The .380 is notorious for shedding energy beyond 50ft.

              The accurate range of this firearm is about 7 - 10 yards. I definately would not consider anything further.

              No it does not have a safety. Much like a Revolver this gun relays on a long trigger pull for a "safety", but no manual safety. The S&W Bodyguard 380 has a thumb safety. But if you carry this gun as you should in a holster it does not need a safety, just like a revolver dose not need a safety.
