    I did something dumb...I pulled the trigger while the slide was off of the receiver when I was cleaning my Ruger LCP and now I think the hammer is stuck. I can not get the slide back on the gun because it looks like the hammer up is stopping the slide from pulling all the way back. How would I go about getting the hammer to go back? Any help would be appreciated.

    if your thumb wont work carefully use a screw drive to pull it back into the cocked position

    So you actually called Ruger to asked how to get the hammer back out of the way.
    And they said "well, how about you take your thumb and pull it back out of the way"

    I can just picture the technician hanging up and shaking his head from side to side.
    No offense.

    I wonder if he told the tech he sat there for close to 17 hours scratching his head, before he called.

    No offense.

    Hey man..... I know your taking some **** for this... but at least you were able to 1. Get a hold of somebody to help you and 2. They were not in a tech center in India

    glad you got it going again....

    Remember the rule about when you put your finger on the trigger....

    I hope the OP realizes the teasing is just in good natured fun. We have had an "oopsie" of some kind somewhere along the lines.

    Any "oopsie" that does not involve a trip to the ER is a good, safe learning experience.

    Yeah, it worked...looking at the LCP I was timid to apply the needed pressure...looks somewhat fragile compared to my other guns...lesson learned...luckily I was busy at work and didn't think about it too much.
