LCP Slide Stop

Hello all. Newbie to the forum, but I did do a search for my question before posting...

Since the LCP doesnt lock the slide back on the last shot, what is the virtue of putting one on the gun?

It is for taking the firearm apart.

Some ranges require firearms to be in a locked open status at certain times....

When I go to gun shops, they usually open the semi auto handguns and pass them to the customer locked open.

No. To remove the assembly pin, the slide needs to held back just slightly.

I agree with mndoggie. Additionally, I took a NRA Pistol course last summer, and that is the manner we were instructed to do to handle a semi-automatic pistol when not actually at the firing line.

YMMV.

Obviously all those who said Ruger copied the P3AT must be wrong then...
