PoliceOne.com Review of the LCP II

I always kind of liked the LCP although I'm not really a fan of the 380 cartridge. It is better than nothing but even the best loads don't offer much in the way of penetration. I prefer some of the small 9mm's like the SIG 938 or M&P Shield. Granted these guns are bigger than the LCP and are more expensive.

What would happen if Ruger decided to revamp the LCP into a 9mm? Would consumers prefer it over the LC9?

I think the LC9 is about the limit of small size. Not a lot bigger than the LCP.

I need to compare them side by side again but I seem to recall the SIG 938 being smaller. It is the smallest 9 I've used and it is one of my favorites.

Sorry, I thought he was talking about Rugers. The Sig may be smaller and the Karr CM9/PM9 may be as well. I prefer the trigger on my LC9s Pro.

Well this is Ruger forums.

I guess my point is Ruger might work on a Gen 2 (actually I guess it would be Gen 3?) LC9 to make that gun closer in size to some of the competing designs out there.

I think that Ruger have hit homeruns with both the LC9sPro and the LCP II, I can carry the LC9sPro almost every day in my blue jean front pocket (or in an IWB holster with a 9 round mag) and if not the LCP II will fit any pocket. I have a Shield 9 and a Glock 43, but the shield is a little bigger, and the 43 have only 6 rounds.

My LC9s pocket and aiwb carries extremely well. Got a Clinger Atom holster and it's great all day. I really like the rounded off edges too. Very comfortable. I've hesitated on picking up a pocket 380 just because of having to buy different ammo, and since the LC9s is so well sized.

I find a 9 mm less than 2o ounces uncomfortable to shoot.

The little Ruger can be unpleasant to shoot as well. Comparing it to the little 380 Glock, the Glock feels almost anti-climactic.

The LC9sPro and LCP II are great personal defense weapons , They were never meant to be range weapons, I love to shoot my Glock 19 or 17 at the range, but there is no way to carry then as a EDC weapon- carry the right weapon for the right job

You can get an aftermarket recoil spring. Bought one through Brownell's, and it really tamed the LCP. Almost a pleasure to shoot. (Almost)

Are you saying there's no way for you yourself to carry a G19? There's plenty of people (thousands) that do, including myself. Not sure if you're speaking in generalities or just referring to yourself.

I have an LCP. When I first got it, it was downright nasty to shoot. Since then, I added a 13# recoil spring, SS guide rod, Hogue soft grip and as Sweet Pea trigger. All this really tamed this little shooter. It is my carry gun.

Bill B will become famous soon enough
I was at the range today with the LCP II. I put another 50 rounds (mostly Win 95 gr. white box) thru it and I'm happy to report that it is still flawless in it's function. This time I had the Tandemkross Toolless Takedown pin in it and no problems. For those wondering, this pin does fit the LCP II.

I had seen somewhere (maybe on this forum in another thread) where the Hornady Custom Defense 90 gr .380 deforms when it is chambered into the LCP (II?). I had some of those rounds, (tho I carry the Hornady American Gunner XTP rounds) with me so I checked it and I can report that my LCP II also deforms the nose of this bullet when it is chambered. I checked my XTP loads and they do not deform. For me, the Hornady XTP rounds are by far the better .380 defensive rounds.

Sonny82-I carried a Glock 17 for almost twenty years (on a gun belt) and it was a great duty gun- but if you can carry a Glock 19 concealed every day –you are a better man than I
