Well, that's what Bud's gun shop is saying about the LCP....... (I wonder if that includes the Smith J frame?) The LCP is cheap, reliable, effective, very small, grips well, etc.......it's got a lot going for it. I can tell you that mine has been 100% reliable since day one...... ooc LCP sandwiched between MK40 and Seecamp: LCP fourth from left: LCP on the day I bought it a couple years ago: NAA Guardian 32acp, LCP, MK40.....this shows my home-made holster for the LCP......It's still in daily use now.
