    Ruger LCP Chapter Two Video

    I made a Chapter Two Ruger LCP review video after having some problems with fail-to-extract on it, ran more ammo through it, different ammo, and took it out to longer ranges. Here are the results. Not a single FTE using Winchester White Box .380 Auto. Over 100 rounds worth shot.

    Plus, I was surprised at how well it did even at what I consider to be a nearly nutty distance in any realistic SD scenario: 25 yards. I was putting rounds on a six inch target and definitely within 12" center mass area.

    Which ammo have you guys found to be the most consistently reliable in the LCP?

    Also, a guy suggested I use some sight paint and touch up my front post with bright red, rear with white. Your thoughts?

    These shots were made under a non stressful scenario.......anything stressful at that distance would probably be alot more difficult.........I painted the front sight on my buddyguard white.

    Totally agree. I was just curious to see how far back I could get and still get some rounds on target. I kept backing up and backing up until I was out at just over 25 yards. I've heard such "horror stories" about how inaccurate the LCP is at anything past ten feet. I just wanted to prove to myself whether or not that was true. I think anyone who starts shooting at 25 yards in a self-defense situation is probably going to face some really serious questions from authorities. I can see it as possible, like a guy is literally shooting at you from that distance, or starts running at you from that distance brandishing a weapon, but...I think the odds are much more likely the SD situation will be much closer and probably won't even give you enough time to get a sight picture, but only to point and shoot. That's where I can see a laser on a LCP being a very helpful tool.

    My EDC weapon when I can carry it is a Glock 26 with a Crimson Trace laser, one in the chamber, 13 in my magazine, with one or two 13 round magazines on board as well.

    I realize that you were just " playing"........I have tried my buddyguard at 20 yds..........I hit the paper, but it's taking me a while to adjust...I am used to shooting Beretta 96's, large frame. so something this small is more difficult to master..........I have shot a friends LCP, and came out with the same results....I like the feel of my guard better, better trigger, better sights, but still needs lots of range time to master.........since I don't like wearing belts, IWB or OWB has not been an option for me, so far, so I am relegated to front pocket carry......until they come up with a better firearm solution, I think that these two firearms are the best bet.......unfortunately, I still have a small, albeit, small trust issue with these firearms........have used nothing but WWB, and Rem UHD 102gr. bjhp, and so far, no hiccups.

    Actually, I'd refer to it as "experimenting" ... I never want to think of using a firearm as "playing."

    I've discovered that I can shoot the LCP more accurately when I shoot it like it is a revolver, using the first joint of my finger on the trigger, since it such a heavy DA trigger. Seems to help.

    Believe me, growing up with a father, who was a gunsmith, and made custom big game rifles for hunters, and having numerous types of firearms around all the time, I fully understand that firearms are a serious business...first thing that I was taught....but if you are on a range by yourself, a little playing isn't bad...maybe poor choice of words?

    I know what you mean, completely. I have a lot of fun with my firearms, but for me, personally, I just don't want to allow myself to slip into a mindset that might be harmful. But, it's totally cool I know what you mean.

    Now, as for great fun...our gun club has a fantastic Cowboy SA range, with tons of steel targets and we can shoot at them with .22LR. Loads and loads of fun!

    Does sound like fun......used to shoot in the basement with .22 cal.........bullet traps...trying to put bullets through the same holes...breath control, etc.....at the expense of my mother's jumping.
