I have had three since Ruger began producing them. Sold one to my sister for CCW, one to a friend, and use the third as one of my CCW guns. All have been very reliable. No misfires jams or other problems. Would recommend to anyone.

Great gun for its intended purpose. Reliable and very concealable.

Great for what it was meant for. I did not like firing mine. Was a little harsh. I have since sold it.

Because of the size and weight they can be a little snappy when fired

mine has been a pleasure to carry and im very happy with it

Not a *fun* gun, but quite accurate and very concealable. I haven't had any issues with mine. Keep in mind only to use American made .380 ammo or sami spec tp prevent damage to your gun. If you don;t believe me, call Ruger to verify.

I owned LCP for about a week and then took it to the range. I'm now own two Beretta Model 21's for about the same $$. It's most likely my shooting but I couldn't hit a thing with it at 10 yards. Just couldn't see that very small front sight. The LCP functioned great.

Great little pocket gun. I had a few issue during break-in, but all has been well after sending a few hundred rds through it. Keep them clean and well greased and they work well.......also leaves me with no excuse for not being armed 100% of the time. YMMV

The gun is what it is.............small and concealable and not a gun you would spend a day on the range putting hundreds of rounds through it. I love it for being able to carry without weight being a issue and is concealable in so many ways.

SWMBO carries her's daily. Shoots it as well as any of her guns. True, not really fun but certainly doable. 100% reliable but not all that many rounds thru it; ammo's still expensive and times are tough.

I'd love to have one, or an LCR. I'm often dressed in a manner to make concealability difficult (no, I'm not a stripper!) and that LCp is darned easy to hide!

I carry mine with the Crimson Trace sights, haven't found a better combination in weight and concealabilty. With a pocket holster my only concern is that someone may think I have a fat wallet.

pain in the ass for a range gun, great as a concealed gun (its purpose) with white nail pollish on the sights makes it real easy to shoot. the stock sights are a pain in low light so put something on them or get a crimson trace sight.

If you want a small "carry alot;shoot a little" gun then it fits the bill. Break it in and it should be pretty reliable for ya. It is definitely easy to hide.

Mine had some serious extraction issues early on, but
Ruger took care of it. I've run 7-8 hundred rounds of factory ammo through since with 100% function.

I put some yellow nail polish on the front sight ramp which really helps. She is pretty accurate for such a tiny gun. Bit of a handful though, so a strong grip is a must
