EXCELLENT PISTOL FOR CONCEALMENT,
August 26, 2013
I purchased this pistol about one month ago, and I must say I made a wise investment. I will be getting my CPL in the mail any day now, and I can't wait to start being able conceal this gun. I am a small framed man (5' 0") 125 lbs, and when this gun is strapped to me in my holster, you can't even tell I'm carrying a pistol. FYI for people planning on getting this gun:
Go to the range and make sure to bring your allen wrench with you. Out of the box, my laser was about 8" off target. With help from the fine follks at the range, my LCP will hit where the laser is aimed every time. I love everything about this gun, and wouldn't own anything else for personal defense. Keep up the good work RUGER!!

this is an awesome carry weapon or night stand weapon
the laser is cool and makes it a quick draw and fire gun
accuracy at 75 feet with 6-12" grouping
100 feet 24" grouping
125 feet cant hit target but 1 time in 7 rounds
i carry this gun in my hip pocket when walking in the city
a bad guy is going to a very bad day if he sticks me up

I received my LCP-CT about 4 weeks ago. In that time I have run about 400 rounds of Winchester for break-in and tried about 50 rounds of Federal Hydra-shock for everyday carry ammo. It functioned 100 percent with both. The Hydra-shock feels like it wants to fail to feed when racking the slide but goes through it without a problem. Surprising, it's not hard to make sub 2"~3" groups at 15 yards. Double action trigger takes some getting used to but is pretty smooth. I normally carry a Glock 27 but find myself leaving it behind depending on the apparel. That is where this little guy comes in. It easly fits in a pocket or a IWB holster. Overall, its a great carry gun. As for Impact Guns, this was my third purchase from them and it was easy as always!

love the gun easy to use light for pocket cary shoots great over 250 rounds no jams not a problem.the laz is about useless works fine just isnt going to do much if you need to pull and fire.I would recomend this gun to anyone that is looking for a sub compact fire arm.

This was bought for me as a gift, my dad wanted me to have a good self defense pistol. Shot 50 rounds through it the day after I got it, both regular target shooting and some self defense drills. No malfunctions what so ever, although my hand was a bit sore.
I definitely wouldn't want to be in the receiving end of this pistol. I have small hands so the pistol is a good fit for me, but with the grip extension on the magazine my dad had no issues shooting it either.
I definitely recommend this as a self defense weapon or as a back up weapon for law enforcement. It's small but efficient.
Not what I thought it would be,

I bought this handgun new from a local dealer that I get all my handguns from. I was very excited to get out and shoot it cause it was the first gun i owned with a laser on it. First thoughts on it were all positive, its small and thin, thinner then my wallet. Fit very nicely in my back pocket. I carried it everywhere with me... Then i got out a week later and shot it
A few problems i had with mine to start off, first the laser wasn't sighted in with the gun which i kinda thought it would be since i bought the gun new with it already on it but eh not so much a big problem, just didn't have the tool with me to correct it. So first mag i have no idea where the bullets went, and this was only at 5 yards, thats how bad the laser was off... second mag i used the sights and got 5 in a quarter sized group, but the sights are almost impossible to use, they are so small. And since they were so small i didn't even wanna try any farther back then 5 yards, but since its a small conceal carry gun for self protection i didn't really need to be any farther back...
The handle is very small, VERY small. I don't have huge hands but my pinky and almost all my ring finger were off the handle. I've shot another .380 that was a cheap knock off of a PPK and i had no problems with that one but with this having a small handle makes a big difference. Since its so small all the recoil is put right in the muscle between your thumb and pointer finger and after awhile it starts to make your hand hurt. Its a good thing its not an every day shooter cause it would suck bad if you had to use it like that all the time.
Last problem was something i came to find a lot of people having problems with, did research on youtube when i was done shooting. The slide, when chambering the first round, would not go all the way forward by itself. The round would go in the chamber fine and the gun looked ready to go but the slide would get stuck back just enough to keep it from firing. Every time i chambered a round i had to push the slide myself. I was not happy with this at all, and i know guns have a break in period, but this was the first and only new gun i bought that has ever done this. I will not buy another Ruger LCP because of all these things and i will tell people to watch out for them. They are a great gun in idea, but when it comes to function mine was not to my liking and i already have plans to trade it in at my gun dealer for a Bersa Thunder .380

Grip ergonomics make it much easier to point and control over my Kel-Tec P3AT. Controls and function are good and the laser is a great bonus for a weapon with such small sights.

It's good that this pistol is offered with a crimson trace. These lasers make it so easy to aquire the target. Anybody who wants one of these is getting a good deal with the laser.
