Scroll a little though the pistol section of the form and you'll see several "issue" threads on the LCP II.

I purchased the original LCP last week over the II because of this reason. I'll wait until Ruger gets all the bugs worked out.

I have a LCP Gen 2 and an LCP Custom and I wouldn't trade either one for the II. Not enough pluses there for me to trade.

I agree! The LCP custom is my favorite.

So Far- Highly Recommended

I've had one for a month and have shot about 100 rounds of mostly Win. FMJ and some Hornady Critical Defense and American Gunner XTPs. I've had no failures of any kind and absolutely love the trigger, the improved sights, and the overall feel of the little pistol. I can understand some feeling a little uneasy about having a single action pistol with a crisp, short 6 lb trigger pull but, if you put it in a secure holster, it is very safe. I bought 3 holsters for it: a BORAII kydex pocket holster, a DeSantis Incognito case/holster and later a Sneaky Pete nylon case/holster.

The BORAII isolates the trigger while still allowing access to the slide so that you can unload and charge the chamber without worry of accidentally engaging the trigger. I prefer the Sneaky Pete to the DeSantis Incognito as the Sneaky Pete does a better job of protecting the trigger while allowing access to the grip when drawing the pistol. The Sneaky Pete with it's magnet closure, rather than the velcro on the Incognito, makes for a very quiet draw as well. I use the Incognito as a cell phone case. These cases/holsters don't get a second look.

I've had an LCP II for a while now and initially had problems (discussed here) with Sig ammo. Apparently that was the only problem ammo. In fact, I had it out today and shot Herter's, Ruger ARX, and Hornady hollow points with no issues. It is also significantly easier to shoot accurately than any other pocket .380s I have owned. I was also shooting an M&P Bodyguard today and the groups with the LCP II were less than half the size of the Bodyguard. I was shooting at steel, but the groups with the LCP II were less than 3" at 50 feet. The trigger is the best part about the LCP II, btw.

My LCP dates back to 2010 and it been a faithful companion since but after trying the trigger on an LCPII I'm making the change also, I hoping by May the bugs will be worked out and the one I buy will be a trouble free as the old one.

Might want the checkout the 'Replacing LCPII' thread started by Ruger Redhawk.

I just bought an LCP Custom after comparing it to the II. I'm happy but everyone's mileage varies.

I pocket carried an Sp101 2 1/4" for several years in cargo style shorts or jeans. With a good belt it is doable. Certainly not as concealable as an LCP but in a gun fight a lot more comfortable. Now I carry a S&W 642, more comfortable to carry and with +P ammo good enough.

When you get your new LCP post up some pics and share with us all.

I had my LCPII out yesterday fired fine and the more i use the trigger i find all this talk about the trigger being "single action" OVER BLOWN, i would say it still has a fairly stiff trigger it feels to me heavier than my Glock 42 and it still has some travel to it. it's not anything like my SA's or my 1911's, I feel completely fine with it in the pocket and chambered, in a holster.

I have the Gen 1 the Gen 2 and the Lcp II. I sold a Gen 1 when I got the Lcp II because I like it so much. I have fired the older 6 and 7 round mags made for the Gen 1 and 2's with no problems in the Lcp II but remember they will not hold the slide open on last round fired. So far no problems shooting ball or Self Defense ammo.
