I was just talking to the LGS owner where I bought my LCP II this morning and he says he can't get enough of them. He said most who handle one, buy one and that no one has reported problems with them. Ruger may disagree with the assessment that it is a failure.

Sold both our LCP II's and picked up two more LCP GEN2's.

Too many problems in too short a time. In a couple years when Ruger has all the bugs fixed we'll try again.

Roughly 150 rounds through mine with only 2-3 FTE's. Blazer Brass and HPR and Federal Hydroshock JHP.

I'll add that I really enjoy shooting it as well. Painted the front sight a bright green with hobby paint, and was more accurate on my most recent range visit (Friday) than my previous two.

I don't think that's the issue, Bill. I fully expect the LCP II to be successful from a sales and marketing perspective. The real issue is whether the LCP II is a safe gun to carry. Some say yes . . . some say no. Both sides have valid reasons to stick to their positions. I'm on the "no" side, but that's just me. YMMV.

I'm seeing a good number of LCP owners on other sites favoring the Gen2s over the IIs. I hope if one of the two has to go , it is the II.

Don't own either, but just looking and reading the reviews...

It seems to me Ruger has improved the LCP II as a little range gun, but made it worse as a self-defense pocket pistol. Would that be a fair assessment in y'alls opinion?

I've got a Pico, so 'more angular'...well, that cuts down usability for pocket carry some, but I certainly have pocket carried the angular Pico. But words such as "light" and "short-travel" are words I like to have describe a target gun's trigger, not a self-defense one.

My favorite shooting gun is a J-frame 22 revolver, so maybe I'm biased toward accepting long, hard trigger pulls. But while that doesn't give me the best groups on a range, it is what I want from a small pocket gun. I like my Pico well enough, but I've thought about getting an LCP as a better pocket gun...and if so, it seems the Gen 2 is what I'd want. Not the LCP II.

You pretty much have hit the nail on the head.I would definitely recommend the LCP Gen 2 over the newer II for pocket carry.The best things about it are it's size and reliability. There is another forum member here I know who has both the Pico and the LCP and loves the Pico.
I also have a J frame S&W revolver.Great little plinkers.

I dislike long pull double action triggers. My preference is for a crisp single action trigger. I normally carry striker fired and single action pistols and the little LCP II falls into that category. I own one and enjoy shooting it. I doubt that I'd carry a 380 as a primary pistol but if it continues to perform as well as it has, I might carry it for a backup. Just my 2 cents.

Regarding safe pocket carry; just put it in a good pocket holster (never pocket carry without one) that isolates the trigger and keep you finger out of the trigger guard when you draw (as you always should). There is plenty of trigger travel before hitting the stop, then a 5-6 lb or so pull. It's not going to go bang by itself.
