I have an LCP that has to go back.
I'm still carrying it every day, and I still shoot it regularly. I just don't drop it. I also don't shoot lead bullets in it, anymore, 'cause it doesn't like them. Other than that, it's fine. I don't consider this any more of a disaster than those KelTec owners did, who found out their particular guns needed a 'fluff and buff,' right out of the box.
Of course, I would recommend that the KelTec owners who seem to be enjoying this so much, don't drop their guns, either. After all, they are mostly the same folks who said the Ruger was a clone of the P3AT, so...
I mean who really knows if Ruger is really 'the devil' for selling a bad gun...or if they are just a good company for owning up to a mistake. Maybe KelTec is just keeping their fingers crossed.
