      Confidence in Ruger/LCP?

      After two recalls, has anyone lost confidence in Ruger? What about the LCP? Would you feel comfortable carrying the LCP loaded once it has been through the recall? Has it been fixed?

      I do carry the LCP, both before and after the recall. It has several hundred rounds through it and has never given me any kind of problem. I carry others as well, but yes I trust the LCP.

      Totally trust the LCP, usually carry it in back pocket in a Galco Pro 436 with one in the pipe.

      +1...no concerns about reliability.

      I do not have an LCP or SR9, but I do have 2 10/22's and a Single Six revolver and to me, two recalls is no big deal. There is a problem with these particular guns and they are taking steps to correct it. My only complaint about Ruger is that I had to put my own foam padding in the box the revolver came in.

      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!

      http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...ectionId=10506

      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!
      Scott

      The LCP recall had nothing to do with reliability or accuracy. It was a safety issue that many companies might have ignored until someone was hurt. Ruger acknowledged the problem early on and went to great expense to make it right, exactly as they should have done.

      I continued to carry mine before the shipping box from Ruger arrived (and was heavily scolded, here, for doing so) and I carry it now. I still prefer it to any of the other mouse guns I have handled.

      I've owned 7 Rugers and still have 4. Never even seen a LCP ...have an old reliable P3at but rarely carry it anymore. If I was in market for small 380 or high cap 9mm(have 3 now!), I wouldn't hesitate to look at the LCP and SR9. Hoping the LCR turns out well, might have to look hard at it?

      Want to get rid of it? I can't find one anywhere around here, and they go for $300+ online...

      Just wanted to see what other's thoughts were on the matter. I agree with everyone. At least they jumped on it pretty quick. I actually bought an LCP on Friday (yep, Friday the 13th) and I got the last one that they had. Salesman said that they can't keep them in stock, so I guess most folks aren't worried about the recall.

      Anyone know what they changed/added to fix the problem? Looking at the paperwork, it looks like they added a spacer beside the hammer? Is that all it took?

      Did not have an issue prior to the recall or after. I have carried mine a few times since getting it back. Mostly, because during this time of year I can carry a larger HG without being noticed. The LCP is for summer or light clothing situations.

      No thanks, Beefy. I said "rarely", not "never" It's my "Summer BUG".

      Here is a link on the Ruger website that answers that question: http://www.ruger-firearms.com/LCPRecall/index.html

      Yeah, I read through all of that a while back. All I could get out of it was "We will install the new hammer mechanism, plus some other functional upgrades that we added since the LCP’s introduction." Just wondered what they meant by that.

      I sent mine back in the recall. Ruger returned it and it still shoots. I guess now if I drop it, the pistol will not fire upon impact. I carry it every day, and I still try not to drop it.

      Have owned more than enough Rugers (every type except a shot gun) and have had absolutely no problems with over 35 years of ownership. My favorites are their double action centerfire revolvers and the Mark II series.

      My SR9 is my new conceal handgun, I have the utmost confidence in Ruger. I praise them for acting quickly on the recalls of both the SR9 and LCP.
