Thread: Ruger LCP 380

  1. I have both ; the bodyguard seems a bit better made but not worth the extra $$. The biggest upside is it can handle +p if you like to use it.

    Of you don't like the recoil, just put a houge grip on it ; Makes a massive difference. The new ones with the "no dash" serial numbers are excellent.

    I forget I have it with me, something I could not say before with bigger handguns.

    Indeed, totally agree. Mine is for those "Oh snap! Gotta run to the store" occasions. It's perfect for that.

    That is correct, I think the he forgot to put a "not" between the 2 examples.

    I love the gun, and personally think the people saying the trigger and recoil are unbearable must have more experience with more expensive guns than I can afford. Before Ammo became scarce and overpriced I but 50rds a week through each of my carry guns, (LCP included) and never felt the need to whine about the recoil. Only alteration I made was some white vehicle touch-up paint on the front sight. Looking to get some DIY tritium (night sight) paint for all my guns.

    I have two Ruger LPC's, one Keltec, and one Sig P238. The Keltec is the same as the Ruger, bought it 10 years ago or better, and don't carry it anymore. The Ruger LPC's are a more refined gun. I like for there lightness, and easy to colceal. The Sig. P-238 is a nicer gun and is reflected in the price. About twice the price of the LPC. The Sig is a great gun to take to the range. I love shooting it. It also comes with great night sights. The Sig has become my EDC in a Remora clipless holster IWB. If I had to choose with out price consideration the Sig would win.

    I have tried the LCP, Keltec, S&W, and Taurus TCP, all are very lightweight for range use, but we, my wife and I, decided on two TCPs, seems like less felt recoil than the LCP or Keltec, and just did not like the feel of the S&W, the Sig shot nice and felt great but for 3 times the price of the TCP it should,
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

    I like the trigger, especially the reset. It seemed a little more accurate at 5yds & 7yds than the LCP. But, that just may be me.

  9. With the 2 generation LCP, the trigger is much better. There are better sights and with a Hogue grip the recoil is lessened. The best Pocket/easy conceal pistol. 8 shots with Laser. Unbeatable at total 13oz.

    I've got the Taurus 738 and am happy with it. Trigger is great (a little long but real smooth). Slide stays back after last round. I've also shot the Ruger and I still like the Taurus best. By the way, a pocket gun IS NOT a range gun, it's for self-protection and concealed carry. If you want a range gun, go buy a Single-Six.
