    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.

    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.

    Just for grins, I went to the Smith & Wesson website. They have no less than FIVE active safety recalls, including the 1911 series, and I don't see anyone questioning their level of confidence in the company. At least the box my SW9VE came in had foam padding already professionally installed at the factory!

    Smith & Wesson

    Even the beloved Glock line has had its share of recalls over the years and the biggest problem for the gun retailers is keeping them on the shelf! Bud's shows no less than 187 variants of Glocks and of that number, only 54 are in stock. That means 133 are on indefinite backorder! And this is from a company who's logo says, "Glock Perfection". As it turns out, I guess perfection is only a goal. Maybe their logo should read, "Glock Close-To-Perfection".

    Add to this list the Sig Sauer Company. They have not been immune from recalls either. Their motto is "Reliability. First time, everytime." Maybe their motto should be, "Reliability. First time, almost everytime."

    I just ordered a Beretta U22 Neos pistol. Their motto is, "500 years. One Passion" Clear and to the point. I guess they will have to change their motto too... in a hundred years! Since I don't have it yet, I do not know if there is any foam padding in the box.

    At least when a company adopts a motto like, "Arms Makers For Responsible Citizens", they are telling you exactly what they do, not what some marketing department wants you to think about them!

    Happy Shooting!

    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.

    Thumbs up comfortable carrying the LCP?

    Yes, it is a great pocket pistol and very reliable, I have put many rounds through it and rarely had any problems. As long as you use it for what it is intended for you cant go wrong(pocket pistol, not a target pistol or primary carry). I also added crimson trace laser and it works great, a can literally shoot from the hip, makes for a quick response to a close up threat, just paint the target with the laser.

    I know this is an old thread but lately I have been thinking about how reliable and easy to carry my LCP is. I agree 100% with the above post.

    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

    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.

    Interesting, that you had that experience. I have the LCP and the LC9 and I feel like the triggers are almost the same. I have to adjust for the trigger if I shoot my Glock 26 and then my LC9, due to the difference between the two pistols. But, when I shoot my LCP and then my LC9 the only differences I notice is the LC9 has a better grip and better sites. I still like the LCP and think it is fun to shoot, just isn't as comfortable as the larger pistols.

    You won't be disappointed with the LCR in any caliber. My girlfriend has 2 of them. One in 38 Special which she bought, and one in 22. Even though I reload for both of us, it was getting hard to keep up as we were shooting 2000 rounds a month. So I bought her the 22. The 22 is dirt cheap to practice with, and it's exactly the same as the 38. I've shot them both extensively. They're reliable as dirt, butter smooth trigger, and accurate as all heck. Go to youtube and do a search for them and you will find a ton of reviews on them in every caliber. On youtube, Hickok45 is nailing a gong at 80 yards with the LCR 38. I shot a 1" group from a rest at 20 yards with it. Do the youtube thing ! ! ! ! !

    I purchased an LCP a few years after the recall. Never had a problem. Nice little gun.
