    New engraved LCP

    I was wanting to get a pocket gun to carry during the summer while wearing shorts. I went to my favorite shop this morning to check out what they had. I was really wanting a 9mm and was even thinking about a 9mm derringer. After talking to a couple of the sales guys and looking and handling several I decided to get the Ruger LCP. I really liked the look of the bi-tone with the stainless slide but when they showed me the engraved slide model and told me it was on sale, I just couldn't justify paying $50 more for the stainless slide.

    Not only did I pick up the little Ruger they also had primers (Federal and CCI) for $30 a brick and I was told they had bought 500,000 primers and they would be that price while they lasted. I picked up some small pistol and small rifle. I'll probably stop by next payday and pickup a couple more bricks.

    The slide is pretty, but not what I would pick for a pocket gun.

    I sometimes carry the Keltec version in a front pocket, and the blued slide and high desert New Mexico summer heat cause rust problems. My preference for a slide finish would be stainless, or even better, hard chrome. When I bought mine several years ago, blue was the only choice.

    That slide is too purdy for pocket wear and tear.

    It probably won't see that much use. My everyday carry is a stainless Kimber Ultra Carry and it will get carried 90% of the time.

    Took the LCP to the range today to see what it likes to eat. Fed it 2 different HP's, and RN FMJ and a FN FMJ it likes all of them.

    First 5 shots from 7 yds

    I love the looks of your Ruger LCP.

    I carry one all the time in a DeSantis Nemesis Holster .

    Nice shooting to.

    Nice weapon!

    As noted above, probably not something I'd want to carry in my pocket reguarly. But, you said it probably won't see much use.

    Very nice!

    I just got one last week like yours. Mine has LCP engraved on the top of the slide too. Mine will get carried and shot a lot!
