I was standing right beside Marshal at the Shot Show when they told us that already ( and this was Monday Feb. 4th) they had orders for 60,000 Ruger LCP's. They were flabbergasted to say the least, but so excited as these numbers far far exceeded normal sales.
And you can believe it or not boys... but when we talked to them the other day.. the number WAS 87,000.
It is higher than that now.

NOT 8,700... but 87,000 and rising.


Make that 87,001. 
After MB's review and Walt's review from the SHOT show...well I just figured I needed one.  Might even buy another...one for the briefcase and one for the wife's purse.

I'll probably have a long wait before it shows up on California's approved handgun list  :'(.

What price are you guys paying? The MSRP is $330.00

I just put a deposit on one of the 12 that my LGS has on order.  I got it for $279.00+ tax for a total of $298.00.
This is my signature,

I sure hope you's wrong, I'm 63 now and would like to get the one I ordered befoe I'm dead  I guess no one has seen, played with or shot one yet. If anybody has seen, plaed with or shot one what do you think of it.

Marshal said they were shipping first week of March. Still true, Marshal?

They start shipping in March, yes.

Michael visited the factory last week and a video report will show up here on Wednesday.

A video is as simple as it gets on Down Range....

Since there are a few out there that doubts the numbers, we decided to document it...

Nah not really .... Michael was at Gunsite last week and dropped by the factory with a camcorder in his left holster and a SR9 in his right.

 ;D  ;D

Oh, They are making them at the Arizona plant ? To bad, I thought it might be another NH gun. Do they actually MAKE anything in Conn. or is it just Corprate Offices?

I ordered (2) LCP for $243 + Tax/each from my local dealer here in WV. He is charging me 10% over his cost. I hope to get them in a few weeks.
