    I just picked up an lcp w/ laser the other day for deep cover cc. Any others on here have one? Any mods worth considering?

    I carry my LCP w/CT laser, loaded with 90gr Gold Dots, in a Nemesis pocket holster all the time. Great setup. :thumbsup: BTW, I dry fire practice alot with it and the trigger doesn't bother me a bit.

    I polished my barrel up really nice. Pictures don't really do it justice though.

    Also painted the visible tip of the hammer white to help with visually identifying the breaking point for the trigger. Made it really easy to pull nearly all the slack out take-up.

    Sold it and moved on though. Wife didn't like it. Never really carried it much.

    I've had an LCP now for about 5 months and love it. Perfect for off duty carry in warmer weather (shorts/T-shirt attire), and makes a good BUG.

    Have you fires yours yet? She's pretty snappy.

    I shot 50 rounds thru my LCP yesterday and had 1 failure to eject which was unusual. I actually prefer my S&W Bodyguard which has NEVER ftf or fte.

    Well, I have one, but consider it my last last resort gun.

    I've had a P3AT for a few years and it's a reliable deep CC pistol. It is what it is, and certainly not a range toy. Recoil is snappy on the P3AT and the LCP, and the triggers are terrible. It has it's place tough. Not sure I get putting a laser on what is basically a short range point and shoot pistol. To each there own I suppose. Congrats on your purchase.

    I think it is a great gun. Sights are a bit non-existant, but I just aim down the top of the slide.

    Honestly, for such a small, thin, and lightweight gun, what more do you want from it?

    I regret trading in my LCP for an LC9. It's just so easy to conceal in a pocket, and accurate as well. Despite the lack of good sights, I was once able to get a 1.5 inch group out of mine.

    Shot mine at the range today. 2 mags of hollow points and 24 rounds of FMJ with no failures. I've lost count but at least 400 rounds now with out a problem. Biggest problem is I forget it's in my pocket.

    I have one with a LaserMax and think it's great. I like the option of not using the laser on the LM. I use a remora for in pocket which also doubles for IWB if needed. Never would have thought I would carry a .380, even on occasion, but it's so easy to carry when nothing else seems to fit. It's better than throwing rocks, unless they're really big rocks. :)

    Not yet--but I'm planning on it either tomorrow or Saturday morning.

    I bought it for the same reason everyone else-- to have something to pocket carry where my g27 is not reasonably done so.

    I pre-ordered mine when Ruger first announced the gun. It was one of the first LCPs off the line. It has been used and abused and has functioned %100. It lives in my Fist pocket holster and is in my pocket anytime I am out of bed.

    I've had my LCP for about a year. It "fits" my carry scheme on those occasions where a larger weapon would be difficult to conceal.

    I don't care for the laser option. The only thing I've added is a Hogue slip-on rubber grip.

    It works well with the small Blackhawk #1 holster in my front pocket. It's a little before 5am here, and it's in my pocket as I'm having coffee in my back yard. (I'm always armed...even at home.)

    My three carry guns are: LCP, LC9 and G19.

    The only mod I did to mine was a short Pearce grip extension. Mostly for comfort, but it also helps with more efficient retrieval from a pocket holster.
