Sold my LCP for a "real" 380 that, hopefully, won't be recalled.
Welcome. To be fair you had a "real" .380 and I would have kept it. :) The post recall LCPs are about as good as you are going to get in a $300 plus or minus lightweight, pocket .380. Nothing IMHO compares to it in that price range. And beginning with the 371-xxxxx s/n guns (only the early 370-xxxxx guns were subject to the recall (a recall I might add that was relatively painless), there have been no systemic/repeititive issues. My LCP has been flawless and I now have almost a 1000 rounds through it. Plus Ruger's customer service is outstanding. For more on the LCP, visit our sister site at:

Having said that, the P380 brings pocket .380s to a whole new level. Two fine guns, two price points (best in breed in both), it's all about needs and wants.

Welcome Freee

I still have my LCP until I get a P380.

Never had a problem with my LCP. Probably the best pocket pistol I have ever owned.

I kn ow it will just sit in the gun room when the Kahr arrives, so it will be going up for sale.

Here is the reason for my comment about the LCP. Couldn't wait to get one. Then once I did, on round 248 the guide rod spring was pushed through the guide rod hole in slide, seizing the slide. This was factory ammo, independence actually. Just decided I could never trust the gun for cc again. Thanks for your messages.

easy to understand how u feel about the lcp but that is such an isoltaed thing, that I think i have read about that twice before. soemthing was wrong, possably the springs put in backwards to, there is a right and wrong way to put those dual springs back together.

Hope the next gun works out Ok for u, as I do think your were being very condeming on a product that either had something wrong with YOUR gun or was improperly put back togehter.

Jocko beat me to the bunch. It's a moot point now since you already got rid of your LCP but my guess is that you had the springs in wrong (easy to do if you are not paying attention). At the LCP forum we get a post on this once every so often and inevitably someone posts back with the fix (assuming it is a spring issue). After that they are good to go, no need to call Ruger, no need to send the gun back. Confidence restored, all is well with the world again. :)
