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.
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.
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.
Ruger’s Updated (Post-Recall) LCP .380 Pocket Pistol
by Jeff Quinn
http://www.gunblast.com/Ruger-LCP2.htmThere are also photos posted of an after recall gun with the diamond mark visible that Ruger stamps in the frame.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,
Thanks Bruce333. I was wondering what the difference would be when I got mine back; good informative article.
I was thinking about getting a Ruger LCP. Is that recommened after all this recall crap?
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.
The Ruger LCP .380ACP Semi-Auto Pistol is on sale at Gander Moutain I was going to buy it as a self protection concel carry peice for my wife. Glad I saw this post first!
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.
Thanks for the reply so I shoudl be Ok geting one for the wife since they should be upgraded for the recall now.
Good to see them recall and clear it up. I have a 371 model.
