From the Ruger Press Room
December 22, 2010
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), is proud to announce the Ruger LCP (Lightweight Compact Pistol) will now be available with a Crimson Trace Laserguard.
"The popularity of the LCP has been overwhelming," said Chris Killoy, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "When consumers told us what they were looking for in a small personal protection pistol, we delivered, and the results have exceeded our expectations. Now with the addition of the Crimson Trace Laserguard, the performance of the LCP as a personal protection firearm has been enhanced."
The Crimson Trace Laserguard helps LCP owners get on target quickly and assuredly through the use of the easy-to-find red laser dot. When gripping the pistol normally, the instinctive front-activation button allows shooters to project the laser wherever the gun is aimed. This provides immediate feedback and gives shooters confidence their shots will hit their target.
The Ruger LCP, a .380 autoloader with a 2.75-inch barrel and an overall length of 5.16 inches, offers legendary Ruger reliability and quality in an ultra-light, compact carry pistol. Winner of the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence 2008 Handgun of the Year Award, the LCP also delivers superior ergonomic design and handsome styling. It incorporates state-of-the-art polymers, aircraft quality aluminum alloys, and high-grade precision steel components engineered for strength and maximum weight savings.
The 9.4-ounce LCP pistol has a capacity of 6+1 rounds. With a height of only 3.6 inches and a width of .82 inches, the LCP is a reliable back-up or carry pistol. The high-performance, glass-filled nylon frame is topped by a through-hardened blued slide.
When size and weight savings count, the LCP is a natural for personal defense carry. The LCP with Crimson Trace Laserguard comes with one magazine, external locking device and instruction manual.

    Like but safety hazzard when firing.

    Liked everything about it EXCEPT the part that curves out above the grip where your thumb & 1st finger meet needs to be a bit longer. I was at the range on a hot August day and the recoil with the sweat from my palms cause the gun to slip and sliced my thumb requiring 6 stitches. No, I was not holding the gun wrong, for those of you who think you know what really happened. Event an instructor on site who inspects the guns before you are allowed to shoot, commented that he felt it should be longer.

    Perfect little Pocket Rocket!!

    Posted by Dave G. on Feb 3rd 2015

    Whether in shorts, jeans or slacks, this fits comfortably in my pocket and always gives me the feeling of safety and security when venturing out in to this mad world. Put this in a Galco ankle holster and you won't even feel it on your leg, that's how light it is. Accurate on the range from 15 yards and laser just makes shooting fun. Perfect little backup for this old LE guy.

    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!!

    Great little carry gun

    Posted by Bert on Aug 18th 2012

    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!

    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.

    Good Shooter

    Posted by Jester on Dec 24th 2010

    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.
