The fact is, there are a number of much better guns in this class than the Ruger. Another factor to consider is how much does the owner train? I personal belief is the Average shooter of the LCP most likely does not even put 200 rounds a year through them, if that. And that is NOT training. That is just taking the gun and shooting it.
Ruger LCP II.

I have only shot the Gen 2, and I am very satisfied with it. I like the trigger on it and I can shoot it well at 7 to 10 yards. I have not tried it beyond 10 yards. I actually enjoy shooting it. I do carry it often also. As of today I have just over 200 rounds down the pipe.

I do have to use the Hogue Beavertail Gril on any of them, but I still like the LCPII the best. I do have to use a pocket holster for it, as I normally use just a Pocket Clip on the LCP. But it’s the best ratio of size, capacity, and accuratcy for me.

Having owned a few of each (LCP/GEN2/II), my vote is for the GEN2.

Bought the LCP for the wife. She likes it. If she's happy, I'm happy!

I know you are asking about pocket guns, however I like the Llama .380. Looks like a small 1911, single stack mag. It is a fun little gun to shoot. I really do think it could be a pocket gun. Just my $.02.

That being said, I recently bought a LCP (Gen 2) and have yet to fire it. I will be going to the range with my son in law on Friday (Good Friday) and will shoot it. I thought it would be a good "summer carry" piece.

Original LCPer. That's all I know and I actually do pretty well with the thing. None of the newer mods are range guns either,so the ole lipstick on a pig adage comes to mind. ("All I know "in this particular gun,btw)

I just placed an order for a Ruger LCP 10th Anniversary Edition.

It's basically a cross between the Gen 2 and the Custom. It has the Custom's skeletonized aluminum trigger, but the low profile sights of the LCP Gen 2.

I carried the original for two or three years, and double action revolvers for ten years before that, but for me, the LCP ll is hands down the superior weapon. The trigger is not too short, not too light, certainly not dangerous, but j u s t right. The slightly larger frame and slide with forward serrations make it easier to handle, which makes it safer, faster, and more accurate. The last round hold open is nice but wouldn’t be a deal killer if not included.

What guns do you consider to be much better?

I picked "Other"...

My dream .380 hasn't been made. I'd really like a pocket .380 made by Walther with the DA/SA Anti-Stress trigger configuration found on their P99 pistols (about 4.5LBS SA, 9LBS DA, with a long pull for the first SA shot if not decocked into DA). Paddle release (like the PPQ M1 or Beretta Pico). Fixed-drift adjustable low profile sights dovetailed in with options for tritium night sights. Made out of something silly light like titanium.

Ruger just hasn't quite hit the sweet spot for me in pocket pistols. The LCP original/custom just looks really UGLY to me. Don't like the contours on it one bit.

The LCPII hits way more of the right buttons for me, but I'm deeply uncomfortable with how light the trigger is. Couldn't do a pocket carry on something like that...

Why you ask? Once while on a long drive I had my Taurus TCP work it's way out of my front jeans pocket. It worked all the way out and then also all the way out of it's holster. I noticed when I fumbled with my seatbelt... only to find the pistol was pointing DIRECTLY AT ME. Needless to say that pants/holster combination was not used again.

An LCPII 5.5-ish LB trigger with less than an inch of pull on a SAO mechanism just seems like an accident waiting to happen... and the glockish trigger dingus, for me personally, doesn't give ANY sense of added safety.

Of course the TCP has a pretty light trigger as well (5lbs or less in some examples), but the mechanism is only half cocked and the double action on that pistol is SUPER long. I couldn't find measurements readily available online, but I'm comfortable saying it's well over an inch.

These days a Beretta Pico and an airweight j-frame are the go-to's for concealed carry for me. I'm not married to either of these platforms however and EAGERLY await the next round of micro .380's. Lots of interest in what else comes out to compete with the new high capacity micro 9's like the springfield Hellcat and sig P365.
