So I felt a little guilt today while cleaning my everyday carry (Ruger LCP) I saw a little spot of rust on the rear of the slide. Thankfully it rubbed right off, and I thought how I would never neglect any of my other $500 plus pistols this way. I have carried this gun for around 8 years and it has never failed with aprox 750 rounds down the pipe. It is the last gun I shoot at the range every time I go and then I refill with fresh sd ammo. If I paid as much attention to this little Ruger as I did say my Glocks or HKs would it hold up better than them? Maybe not, but I will say this little gun has seen way more harsh conditions than my others ever will and has earned my trust.
