Got to touch one at a local retailer yesterday. Unfortunately had a sold sign on it. They have a waiting list. I'll have my name on a list as soon as I check out the othere retailers in town for price and availability.

I saw two at a local gun show yesterday. $399 and a really unbelievable $499. Think I'll wait a while.

Great fit and finish. A little more heft than the Kel Tec. Trigger a little awkward. Not enough time with it to offer more info.

Unreal the uproar this little pocket piece is creating. I don't recall such a demand for a handgun in a long time. By the time I get one, I'm afraid the summer months of prime carry will be well past. Oh well, there is always next summer, (hopefully)!

I did get to see one today. I did not get to handle it. Yes, it had a sold sign on it. It looked very nice. A lot better than my Kel Tec. Had I had a choice I would have chosen the Ruger over the Keltec, but since I already have a Keltec, I'll just stick with it. In case I have never voiced my opinion here, I love Ruger.

Gun show this weekend in Vegas. I'll see if there's any there; I have a hard time believing it's really going to be much superior to KelTec...

I was just talking to my local gun shop owner and I for one have been waiting for this piece to come in.

I asked him whats taking so long and he told me that the Shortage of them wasnt due to demand so much as...

The weapon had a recall on it due to firing problems when dropped.

Apparently the first run of the weapons were malfunctioning. So they called them all back.. are fixing the problem and taking a second run at it.

So rest assured... They are comming.. we just dont know exactly when yet.

they do have a recall on some of the SR9's for that problem. have not seen anything about a recall on the LCP's.

Picked mine up this week. $269.95. Have not shot it yet though.

Installed the quick-clip from Kel-Tec.

My dad has a Kel-Tec and I will say the Ruger has MUCH nicer finish!

I have not had a chance to see one up close and personal but from the pictures it looks very promising. I already have a mouse gun, a Beretta Tomcat, for times when I need to go real small or for a 2nd or 3rd gun. but I can see where this might be a great addition to my collection.

I went to the gun show here in Vegas today and there were at least three of them--all priced just below $400:icon_eek:

In two of those cases, there was also a P3AT on the table. The Ruger looked a bit nicer than the KelTec; I didn't think the trigger was much, if any, better, and there was little difference in size. I can't think of any way the Ruger obviously deserved a $100 premium unless you just have to be first to own one among your little circle of friends.

Obviously, I was not impressed enough to buy one.
