You'll like it. No issues with mine and performs well for a gun of it's type.

[edit] I shared the dislike for Ruger. Then I bought the LCP.......and here lately I've been picking up the 556 at the shop more and more........just........might......

I'd do the keltec before the ruger... better support. I still recommend checking out the Rohrbaugh though.

Kel-Tec P3AT or Rohrbaugh R9



Micro-Eagle (you might have to look hard to see the gun)

those Rohrs are cool but I hate the mag release, check out the Kahr p380

I'd do like the others have said and take a peek at the Kel-Tec,the Micro DE is good too but it is an all steel pistol so it's a bit heavier then the Kel-Tec or the Ruger,I don't know about the Khar but it'd be worth a look since it seems really small.

Also I dunno what your pockets look like but you also may want to check out the PF9 or P11 from Kel-Tec.....9MM's and all that.

I have a Kel-Tec P-3AT and an LCP. I carry my LCP every day.


My Kel-Tec hasn't left the safe in quite some time. Get the Ruger, you'll be happy with it.

Ive only had my LCP for about a month now and have no complaints. Oh yea I also scored 100 rounds of 380 for $30 about an hour ago

+1 for the Keltec P3AT. You can pickup the clip for it for 12.00 and it is easy to install. It is virtually invisible.

I use a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster.

I'm going tomorrow morning. Unless there's a small cheap 9, I'm coming home with the lcp....

Holster undecided.

Never pocket carried before, gonna have to try them all out.

Same clip fits the LCP, I have one on mine.
Link Posted: 10/26/2009 5:21:47 AM EST
so i got the lcp.
very impressed.
got the desantis, not so impressed.

I got this for formal wear and for back up,
but the desantis doubles the bulk and almost doubles the weight of the damn pistol!


It's fine in black cargo pants, which i mainly wear, but in a suit? not so sure.

I have a belly band though that is perfect with the LCP.

I think that's gonna be my formal wear carry method.

ought to check out these, i love mine for my p3at(with +1 grip extension), been carrying since before the LCP was a twinlke in bill ruger's eye... given that they are almost the exact same dimensions and such you ought to love it . I just slip mine in the back pocket and it is a wallet (i front carry my wallet anyway, harder for "honest" citizens to "aquire "it). but if you CCW it in strong side front and weak side front is wallet you can draw with strong hand, and draw wallet with weak hand and slide credit card with strong hand (to buy more bullets, )


http://www.pocketholsters.com/Ruger_LCP_380_Pocket_Wallet_Ho/ruger_lcp_380_pocket_wallet_ho.html

and if you know sombody who is really handy with leather you could have them make you a 2 or 3 round reload just below the trigger guard, both providing 2-3 very linty rounds, and a more "square" look, decreasing print on pocket(whichis already almost perfect wallet).

just be sure to put some blue locktite on the brass scews, I had one come apart in pocket. http://www.pocketholsters.com/Ruger_LCP_380_Pocket_Wallet_Ho/RugerLCP.jpg

Check alabamaholster.com. I believe they have a new pocket design for just what you are looking for.

My LCP rest in a Galco Pro 436. Great pocket carry.
