LCP II Trigger Spring

New guy here on the forums. I just recently got an LCP II and while looking for a holster, I found a few companies that actually refuse to make holsters for the pistol stating that the first stage/takeup on the trigger is too light. They say they won't make holsters for it because they don't feel that it's a safe gun to carry. Anyone else feel this way as well? I'm on the fence about it with regards to pocket carrying.

Haven't shot the LCP II, but the original trigger takes forever. Curious to see how this plays out. Haven't heard of refusing to make a holster for a new gun.

OP: I would be more inclined to believe this if you posted the names of the companies you are talking about. I have an LCP II and carry it almost daily and don't feel that there is any danger of an inadvertent discharge. If the trigger is covered and has the "Glock lever" on it, how can it discharge without intent? Also, I see lots of holsters for the LCP II from virtually all the major manufacturers I have looked at. FWIW, I'm currently using a holster designed for my PPK and it fits pretty well.

Uncle George Holsters will not make a holster for the LCP II. I can't remember the other company right now.

I see that Uncle George is quite vehement about it, but I do see holsters for the LCP II from Crossbreed, DeSantis, Galco, Fobus, and Alien Gear... There are probably more, but that was a quick search. I never heard of Uncle George holsters, but they look to be pretty nice - even though I only see one type of holster (the wallet holster).

There has been some hub-bub in certain circles online about the LCP2 and the fact that it is essentially a single-action pistol without a manual safety. I find it ironic that Ruger, of all companies, is the target of this type of criticism considering that they have a long history of loading up their guns with all kinds of extraneous safety levers, doodads, and gizmos.

I haven't shot an LCP2, but I've dry-fired one. The trigger pull is no where near as light as some tweaked Glock triggers that people are using in "defensive" pistols. I'm not sure what bug these people have up their butts with this gun's trigger; but if that's their policy but they don't follow the same guidelines with the plethora of other fully pre-cocked striker-fired guns out there, it's pretty hypocritical. Ask if he makes holsters for the M&P, XD, PPQ, VP9, RAP, P320, etc.

When dry firing my LCP II i watch the hammer, it is not "fully" cocked, as you pull the trigger you can see the hammer move back some before dropping, it has the trigger safety and something has to pull the trigger to fire it, it ain't just gonna fire itself, I carry mine in the Ruger holster no problem.

Wife has tge LCP II and loves the trigger. As far as holsters, there are many on the market that will work fine. The Glock style trigger is no different on this gun as the or any other gun that has a similar type safety trigger.
