    Wow! That's it, and I'm still in the club...? Cool!

    I apologize to my fellow club members for the mishandling of Top Secret information but once I found out that the super-secret pecking order was worth millions of dollars, I became overwhelmed with greed. It will never happen again, I give my word.

    I'd like to see what Ruger's testing procedure looks like.

    someones math is wrong.
    1.5 meters is not 4.5 inches as is written (and yes kev i know it wasn't you). Just a little factoid check thrown in here. the " symbol stands for inchces in measurement. its the ' symbol thats feet. Not sure a 4.5inch test is much

    No good foreigners!


    Maybe Ruger got their metric/SAE conversions wrong... it happened to NASA. A 4.5 inch drop test would explain a lot.

    You are right this guy wants you as customers for life not just long enough to sell you the next big thing.
    The respect he earned by advising me against a purchase will bring me back through his door whenever i am in the market.


    Don't know where you are in KY Devils Johnson but this shop is only about 5 miles north of Derby City on 65.

    You're real right about that.

    My sentiments exactly. I didn't realize the extra mag came with a pinky extension. Yeah!!!
    I love my LCP.

    Could HandgunForum make this kind of information into a front page "sticky"?

    Ruger is an outstanding company!!!!!! Auto manufacturers recall their products and the investment is considerably more than $330.00. It may be cumberson to some but for them to take care of the problem and a free mag to boot, well what more can you ask. Yes they may have released the LCP before extensive testing but they are redeeming themselves in my book. Good job Ruger!

    Why the hell does everybody have a bug up there ass about Ruger, they are a great company. There have only been 3 reports of the LCP having an AD when dropped. Yes this is not good but around 60,000 gun's have been produced to date and only 3 have had this happen to them. They all have to pass certain drop tests to be able to sell. So get off your high horse and enjoy a good little gun.

    Nice first post. Where did the bug up your ass come from?

    One bullet in the ass from a defective gun is all it takes to turn me off that particular model and you say three have gone off when they shouldn't. What makes you so sure it was only three?If that is acceptable then I guess we should be willing to suffer a few thousand AD's and resultant injuries and death per year among the 80 million or so gun owners.

    If you take the time to read some other posts in the Ruger section you will see that some of us like Ruger products that work.

    Enjoy

    Thanks, I have heard from my local dealer where I bought my LCP that is Ruger was only aware of 3 AD's, then have also read this on other forums. I know it's not good to have it happen and don't blame them for recalling it, I think they are handling it in a very good way. I just don't understand why everybody is slamming them so bad for handling there screw-up in such a good way.

    Ruger’s Updated (Post-Recall) LCP .380 Pocket Pistol
    by Jeff Quinn
    http://www.gunblast.com/Ruger-LCP2.htm
    Ruger learned that it was a possibility with some of the early pistols that, if dropped, they might accidentally fire. I know of no reports that an LCP ever did actually unintentionally discharge,
    There are also photos posted of an after recall gun with the diamond mark visible that Ruger stamps in the frame.

    They are good little pistols. I sent mine in, even though I don't drop guns, and it was back in a week, working perfectly...just as it was when I sent it off.

    Ruger is a good company that makes good guns. They just 'screwed the pooch' on this one, and had to go to a lot of expense to make it right.

    Any old gun for sale at a dealer should have been fixed, and new guns would have been manufactured with the fix to begin with.

    Ruger - LCP™ Product Safety Warning and Recall Notice

    5/20/09 - LCP Recall Update
    How to determine if your pistol needs the retrofit
    : All LCP pistols bearing prefix “370” (that is, serial number 370-xxxxx) may be affected. Newly manufactured and retrofitted “370” prefix LCP pistols with the new hammer mechanism installed have been marked with a diamond in the flat portion of the slot just behind and below the hammer as shown to the right. Going forward, new pistols will be marked with the serial number prefix “371” (serial number 371-xxxxx) or higher. Pistols with the “371” prefix or higher (for example, 372, 373, etc.) are not affected.
