I have no problem with my Rugers....
I totally agree with the post here.I've had my LCP for a few months now.Took it to the range when I first got it and fired a hundred or so rounds through it.No errors what so ever.I got mine "after" the fix.
The recall was on the pistol possibly firing if dropped on a hard surface.I thought this to be dumb,until Mr. Columbo,me,accidently knocked mine off the little table next to the bed.It landed on a
hardwood tile floor.The gun didn't go off.I have complete faith in my LCP.The big guns are built stout and the ones I,ve fired are brutes.Ruger makes a fine weapon.
I have no problem with my Rugers....
When I first started shooting hammer blocks were new and not on all pistols or revolvers--and certainly not on any older ones. Is it a defect? It is a defect like leaving the seat belts off of a new car is a defect.
A girl friend of mine complained once that new cars are not nearly as good as the old ones her father used to buy. Her reasoning was when she was a kid they never used to have recalls at all.
No, there were no recalls. The bean counters would say, "How much will it cost us in lawsuits if, say 200 people get killed because of this defect? And how much will it cost to fix the defect?" If the cost to fix was higher than the predicted lawsuits then they would just let the 200 or so people die.
Ruger is making a voluntary recall. Here is the notice: Ruger - LCP™ Product Safety Warning and Recall Notice
It seems like they are behaving well. It is important that the manufacturer be more worried about the defect than the consumer. In that way it will always to the right thing.
I wouldn't carry my sr9 or my lcp if I didn't have total confidence in them. I have never had a problem w/ either of them.
I've owned my LCP for over a year now and I have had NO problems with it or any Ruger product.
I have posted here last August and at that time I own only 2 Ruger products. Now I own 10
There were re-calls, but I truly believe that Ruger now has some GREAT products and the issues in the past were part of the expansion a couple of years ago.
A true and proud Ruger owner.
I do like my Rugers.....Just bought the LC9 and I like it....
Love my LCP carry it daily as primary or back up but traded the LC9. No reliablty issues just could not get use to the trigger.
I looked at the LCP 380 and couldn't say it jumped out at me as something I have to have.......So I bought a much larger Kimber Ultra Carry stainless 45 auto......Love that gun ....but after reading this thread I am going to pick up a Ruger 380 just for kicks. Sounds like you all think pretty highly of it and I can use it for a summer carry
LCP in the pocket...
PM9 in the pants ...
XD 45 on the belt ...
I carry the P95.....love everything about it. A friend has the LCP.....way to small for me. Never shot one....but wonder just how accurate it could be bechause it is so small.
This could be said about any choice.Ruger is just responding to avoid a lawsuit happy individual that is careless.I watched a history show about Wyatt Earp where he sat in a saloon and his pistol slid out and discharged.Only damage was his coat but it can happen to the best.1911 carried cocked and locked scare alot of people but I feel safe doing it.It is about being responsible in your handling.
A good pistol is a good pistol. After that, it is all about shot placement. Practice shot placement with the pistol of your choice.
An eyeball shot with a .22 cal. is better than a miss with a .45 cal. any day of the week. IMO, of course.
I purchased an LCP a few years after the recall. Never had a problem. Nice little gun.
