      Smile ruger quality

      I own 4 of the various beasts, and have had not a single problem amongst them. The LCP is a perfect summer carry; don't leave home without it.

      Another satisfied LCP owner. Also have a 10/22 rifle. Have not had any problems with either and always have the LCP in my pocket as a back up to my XD 40.

      I sure wouldn't carry a gun I didn't have confidence in. When it comes to Rugers I have some that are older than most of the folks on this forum. I have confidence in all my Rugers right down to the LCP that I bought my wife.

      I have had Rugers in the past.
      I own a LCP & SR9c and love them both. I just ordered a GP-100 and plan to buy a SR 40S&W (when they come out)
      Also plan to get a Mini-14 Ranch rifle!
      So do I think the recalls are hurting Ruger, NO!
      (I also own Toyota's)

      Wink Ruger?

      I had an LCP for a while, until I found I couldn't shoot the little bugger. It's just way too small. I also have and like very much a P345, which is carried daily. The 345 is an easy gun to carry and a smooth shooter that puts the bullet exactly where I want it.
      If I really need to hide it, I carry a Bersa .380 SOB and it works fine.

      I sometimes carry my Ruger P345 too.



      It's a great shooting gun.

      Angry

      i hope the negative poll results were due to a spammer cuz the lcp is a awesome little gun, most before the recall and 100% after had zero issues...

      It had to be a spammer - most of te shooters I know have a LCP or Kel-Tec and not one of them is dis-satisfied with their guns.

      Somethings funny here.

      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.
