    Well, got a call from my local FFL saying my LCP had arrived. I picked it up and headed straight to the range. First off I was very impressed with the fit and finish. I only had 1 box WWB and 1 box of Federal Hydra-Shok's and it feed everything without a hicup. Since someone decided to shoot up all the plywood with a shotgun and not replace it, I was stuck shooting at the plates but it shot point of aim hitting every plate from 7-21 ft. The only other pocket guns I have to compare recoil too is my Beretta Tomcat and Seecamp (both .32's). The LCP was a little harsher than both these (I figured it would since it's a .380 though) but it was still managable and I could have finished another box without problems. All in all, I'm very pleased with it and recommend it to anyone looking for a small little pocket pistol. Now to head back to the range to put up some new plywood for someone else to shoot up.

    Yeah..... I'm hoping you got a good one.

    Reports from many LCP owners have been far less than favorable.

    I am wanting them to come out w/ a 9mm. Hope it will be better.

    I've been hearing the same things about the LCP as the Kel-Tec P3-AT (it's direct knockoff of it). They have a number of standard problems - all of which seem to be inherent in really small automatic handguns.

    My buddy picked one up last weekend at the Reliant gun show - we took it out the next day. Personally, I didn't care for the "littleness" of the gun, not much to hang onto. Although I do appreciate it's concealability.
