The NEW Ruger LCP


Red Hat

First it was Sccy (formally known as Skyy) now Ruger has copied Kel-Tec's P3AT. Anything look familiar?? Even in the break down the parts look the same. The only problem I see is the 8 lb trigger pull. Even though...I want one! I guess it's another one that I'm having to wait for release from the manufacture.;)

The LCP is to ship in March,mine goes on order tomorrow. (GS closed Sun/Mon or it would already be on order).
I'v got 2 P3ATs that run just fine and have no intention of replacing them but I really want to try one of these. I do wish Ruger would have came up with their own design though. Word from a company employee is it is a copy not under license.

That will go really well with my new ALL black SR9 I just purchased today. Damn the 3 day wait! I can't get my CCW fast enough. Blah!
 
Thanks, burley. I removed it. I was looking for the other view and saw that one. I didn't even notice it was PS'd. I did notice the rail but it didn't click. That's what happens when you are in ahurry...:eek:;)
 
it will probably cost $399 !!

Kel-Tec should sue as in Glock v. Smith&Wesson (sigma)
 
I love Ruger. Thanks for the post. I wish they would make one between that size and the size if the new SR9. I would still probably stick with my p345 though. They need one about the size of the XD subcompact or baby Glock. Maybe they are working on it. Did I say I love Ruger.
 
Man am I glad to see Ruger make this! I've be toying with which one - Sccy, or Keltec, but now I think my mind is made up - I know Ruger quality - woo hoo!
 
Yeah... but .380?

I looked at CorBon to see what they have for this little puppy.

380 AUTO

80 GR. DPX

1050 FPS

196 FTLBS

Dang it, this darn thing is growing on me! :rolleyes:
 
I want one! Slide lock, improved ejector, rounded edges and real style, what other refinements did they make to the KT design? Time to retire my old S&W SW380 for a more stylish pocket pistol. :)

Way too often you will find me only carrying my P32 but even I know that .22, .25, .32, and .380 are all too weak to really count on when it matters.

I totally agree but I'm reminded of times when I am not allowed to carry... like at work. This little gem would be super easy to carry and virtually invisible in my SmartCarry! :D

But if I do get one, I wouldn't be able to pick on anyone else for their "pip squeak" guns anymore! :p
