Thread: New Ruger LCP

  1. #11

    Cool


    It is ironic that GUN TESTS magazine ranks the KelTec 3AT higher than it does the Ruger LCP. It seemed as if they were saying, 'if you buy the LCP, have a file'!

    BTW, hello from a 30+ yr carrying new guy!

    Actually I learned about it from someone else on this forum (I'm thinking it was HowardCohodas but I won't swear to it) . Consistently this has been one of the best forums around for getting information including finding other forums.

    That light may just be scarier to the bad guy than the gun.

    It's always wise to have a Plan B.

    Well, I own a leather one made specifically for the LCP, but its simply too tight. I've worked it over for a week now while watching TV on the couch at night and still its too tight. I'm thinking that the DeSantis will be the ticket. The only thing I don't like about that is that you very easily could get some printing. All we need is ONE manufacturer to make a pocket holster WITH some rubber grippers...and we're good.

    I've never had any problem with the Guru's holster (www.pocketholsters.com), I actually normally carry in the front pocket with it, but have carried it rear pocket in jeans with no problem once it was broken in a bit. The trick is that once it wears just a bit, the wallet backer will sort of begin to roll at the top and that catches on the pocket edge, front or back keeping the whole holster seated while the gun is withdrawn. One must also break the holster in so the gun goes in and out smoothly, otherwise, it is wise to sort of partially withdraw it at the first sign of trouble or it will be a bit tight for a quick draw. After a few months however (my experience with two so far) they break in perfectly. I am now in the break in process for the new one for the LCP with laser.

    Yeah. After a week of working it in, today it came out of the back pocket real nice. Its not contoured to the butt yet, so I can really feel its presence, but like you said, over time, it'll break in more and more.

  9. Nice write up. I did a ton of research on lasers for my LCP and decided on the armalaser for the reason you pointed out.. Activation.. there is not much room to hold this gun in the first place and with a button in the way.. well.. not my idea of a good design. The armalaser is not as pretty as others but its rock solid and you dont even have to think about activating it.. its all touch control. Just put your finger in and it lights up. If you want to activate it without moving your finger to the trigger its easy.. and the manual explains it.. use your left thumb to do it. It has a 12 second time out and a master switch.

    The upside of its thickness is twofold. 1). Twice the battery storage. 2). Its exactly the same thickness as the rear of the gun so it just does not print. I was skeptical about the thickness when I saw pics.. it alwats looked thicker than the gun.. nope.. exactly the same as the rear right to the end of the screws even.

    It also comes with a nice pocket holster free.. which is a beny.. and for much less.

    The pin removal is a non issue.. I thought Id be beating it out.. hell you could push it out with a toothpick.. you do have to tap the new screw guides in place.. but no big deal at all.. Its obvious why you can drop this thing 100 times and it wont budge..

    Anyway.. Im pretty happy with the quality.. it seems to be on par with the LCP if you ask me. Im not affiliated.. I just went on the website and ordered.. he told me due to demand would ship in 8 days.. I had it in 7.

    My 02 take it or leave it.. I tried uploading a pic but got errors.. sorry..

    Well, to each his own but that's not a good reason as far as I can see and I have one. There is no "button" in the way of anything simply one under your fingers in a normal grip. From what I gather, you have to actually touch something not in your normal grip to turn on the Armalaser and it doesn't stay on but has to be touched again after a period of time. I find no problem either hiding the laser with my trigger finger if I don't want it to be seen or in not activating it in just holding the gun.

    The Armalaser is a little cheaper though the Crimson Trace can be had for $159 from a couple of sources including the elsiepea website.

    I didn't know of the Armalaser when I bought my CT but having examined the information on both and having used the CT, I am not unhappy in the slightest and would choose the CT again.

    For those of you with the Crimson Trace on your LCP- Have any of you had issues with it not activating when the button it held in?


    I have some problems with it and have taken the CT off the gun once or twice to see if something was binding, and no dice. It seems to work 75% of the time so I don't know if it is a bad contact in the switch or I'm just being too picky.
