Ruger answers questions about the new LCP
« on: February 29, 2008, 10:30:59 AM »
Today, Ruger started shipping their new Ruger LCP to their distributors. This is earlier than estimated, so sometime next week, there's a good chance the dealers will receive their first shipments.

Ruger LCP - first video report

Because of the many questions about this new pocket pistol, we have invited Ruger to answer some of them in a special broadcast here on Down Range.
 
As a DRTV member, you will be invited to ask the questions.

Post them on this thread and we will have them ready for Ruger by the end of Tuesday, March 4th.

Yep, some gun writers sample LCP's hit their FFL dealers doors this afternoon...
I don't want any part of your change.

McCarthy was right...

What are Ruger's thoughts on ammo selection for the LCP?  I assume the gun's designed to be reliable with quality factory hollowpoint ammunition as well as ball.

But how about "hot" factory .380 ammo like Buffalo Bore's new "+P" line:

http://www.buffalobore.com/ammunition/default.htm#380

I see that Buff Bore test chronoed each of their .380+P rounds in a Kel-Tec pocket pistol.  Impressive numbers (e.g. 100 gr hard cast LFN at 1061 fps), that I bet would be equaled if fired in an LCP.

Yea, is there any way someone can find out? Huh? Maybe? Hope?

No thanks, I had one of those and it was not a good experience.  The trigger return spring would not stay where it was supposed to.  Kel-Tec refunded my money, however.

Does the LCP have 'tool-less take down"? 

Why the slide lock if it doen't automatically lock on empty magazine?

Is there a magazine disconnect safety?
