    Saw one of these at my lgs yesterday and picked one up on GB this morning. Really like the trigger and the sights are actually sights. I've got 2 other LCP's that both have CT's on them and carry one all the time in my pocket as a BUG. I'm used to the crappy trigger, so this new one felt like a dream when I dry fired it at the fun store yesterday. Knew I had to have one. Looks like one, if not both of the other two might be finding a new home. ;)

    Congratulations on a neat little pistol. Have fun and shoot it often.

    I have that exact model, the custom. I filled the front site with more/flush to top of the hole with florescent paint, and painted a Glock "U" on the rear. Not what it was designed for, but can hit torso at 25 yards that way with it. Hey, now I know.

    Love it because it is soo light and soooo incredibly carry-able.

    From the ammo research I've done, selected the Fiochhi Extrema using the Hornady XTP hollow point. Per "Shooting Bull" tests, +/- 12" penetration in FBI Gel + thick denim. Also, that XTP bullet has never failed to feed in any gun I own.

    Congrats on the LCP Custom, as far as having a gun that you can carry in any scenario, for me, that one was it.

    Those are nice. I handled one at my LGS and was sorely tempted, but I am putting nickles in a jar until I can pick up another Sig P238 ("another" for me; my wife carries one daily). The LCP is popular for good reason, though. Congrats on the nice acquisition.

    The LCP is on my short list -- and my list only has one gun at the moment... :)

    Its my edc in a pocket holster. Sights are nice, the trigger doesn't seem much better than most lcps but the sights alone make it better.

    Nice LCP, I had the original one a few years back and plan on picking up one just like yours, the "custom" in the next few weeks. They're great tiny pocket guns.

    I wish they would do a striker fired version of the LCP. Mrs. Haldor's LCP has a very long and heavy pull, that stacks up and gets heavier the closer you get to the end of it. An absolutely terrible trigger pull.

    The LC9 was just as bad if not worse, but the LC9s-Pro has one of the best trigger pulls I have experienced in a pocket auto (Kimber Solo is it's equal).

    LCPs-Pro, I would buy two of them. I am going to get Mrs. Haldor an LC9s-Pro for Christmas (don't tell her anybody, it's a secret).

    A striker fired version would be interesting for sure.

    I don't know why but I want a striker fired LC380 for a range toy. Now is that crazy or what?

    I just received one of those as well, this week. Mine was used and bought from a member here on GT. Great little pistol and you are right, the trigger is nice. I have a Gen1 LCP too, but don't have any plans to get rid of it, just yet.

    You don't need any sights on an LCP, and the only reason they have them at all, is because the marketplace will bear what people want to buy.

    Larry Seecamp had it right......no sights at all on this type of gun.

    I also love my older LCP, the one that almost has sights!.....and, my Seecamp!

    I have the original and I like the new one, just don't know if it's worth while plopping down money for gun that more than likely you wouldn't use the sights anyway if you ever had to use it.

    You are absolutely right. I love my LCP, but it is a difficult gun for me to shoot. I picked up an LC9S Pro and gave the LCP to my gf. Now she has a hard time shooting it :). I told her that if she proves she will carry for a few months I'll get her an LC(S Pro.
