You might want to check the Springfield 911. It is available in either .380 or 9mm. It is quite small. You may find it fits the hand better or is more accurate. There are a bunch of other small carry pistols that have come out since the original LCP.

We are both happy with the little guns. I had a Doctor's appointment for a check up two weeks ago and after we got thru the medical crap we started talking guns. I showed the doc my LCP 2 and he stated he was going to get one for himself, his wife and daughter. His nurse said she was going to start saving up so she could get one.

Anyone having issues with theirs? I got one last fall and just sent it back to Ruger for the 2nd time. It has always malfunctioned in some various way on average once every 40-50rds. The first time I sent it back was after the extractor flew out of the gun. This time b/c frequent malfunctions are unacceptable IMO.

I'd encourage her to consider a "Lady Smith" Air-weight revolver unless she is a frequent range go'er. I wouldn't carry any auto unless I practiced the additional complexities of clearing an issue. But that's just me.

I own three LCP 1s. I took one to the range today. I fired 64 rounds through it. Prvi Partisan 94 gr and Tula 91 gr. Both FMJ.

Recoil was manageable. I had some trigger strike on my index finger. Hurt a bit. No permanent damage.

The Tula had some trouble with Failure to Feed. The Prvi Partisan cycled flawlessly.


I use a Talon pocket holster. I carried it in that holster for so long I do not remember when I bought it.

The firearm is compact and easy to carry.

I agree. I have a Ruger Mark III that does not reliably fire some 22 LR. I use it to force me to do clearance drills.

I had a few FTFs today. I cleared them just fine.

A revolver is wonderfully simple. Point/aim and squeeze the trigger.

I am told that the Ruger LCR is light and easy to use. For a lady I would recommend 38 special or even 327 Magnum. If she is sporting, she can go up to 357 magnum.

I own an SP101, which is not light but extremely durable and easy to conceal.
