    Exclamation Just got an LCP!

    I've finally bought my LAST gun (my wife said so!). I was able to pick up an LCP at the local Gander Mountain for $349. I haven't had time to shoot it, yet, but I like what I've read about it.

    So here's my collection (I'll try to post an image some time next week):

    Ruger New Vaquero in .357
    Ruger LCP
    Smith & Wesson M&P 9c
    Browning Buckmark Camper .22


    I know it may not be the fanciest grouping, but I'm pretty satisfied!!!

    I think the LCP is an excellent, CCW weapon. It is quite concealable; and mine has proven reliable in practice sessions. I hope your's will be equally functional for you.

    Was able to shoot it tonight before the range closed. Shot 120 rounds thru it. THe only problem I had was 3 separate times, when I went to rack the slide, the slide didn't close all the way. A second pull got it to close. It never misfired.

    Maybe I didn't let the slide snap back quickly enough. Or is this something I should be worried about. And yes, I know that if it does this when I need it most, it is a problem. Perhaps I didn't lube it enough??

    i have the kel-tec. one thing i read (and note) regulalrly is "slingshot" it when you are chambering the first round. if it is during firing thats another issue, and lube it well.

    Thanks. It's never during firing. Just before the first round.

    Mine does the same thing. It's never done it when firing either, but it does if I don't "slingshot" it. What kind of ammo were you using when it was happening to you?

    Glad to see everyone is happy with their LCP's. I just got a Springfield 40 XD, but I want a pocket pistol, so I"m thinking the LCP is the way I will go.

    Tennessee Cartridge was the ammo I was using. Reloads, I believe.

    Just wondering if it was a particular type of ammo that they didn't like.

    Does your barrel have a lot of play in it when the slide is locked back?

    I hate to ask, but what do mean by "slingshot"?

    Instead of hitting the slide lock to release the slide, you pull back on the slide and release it. Just like you would fire a slingshot.

    Ahhh, thanks. I have a Kel-tec with no slide lock and didn't realize that the LCP did.
