    I fondled one a while back and was impressed. I've been tossing around buying one for a while now. I looked since I had some extra cash and noticed the prices skyrocketed on them to about $300.00. I didn't want to spend that much. I looked on Black Friday and found some deals, but were all sold out. Palmetto State Armory just sent their daily deals and have it for $200.00. I pulled the trigger. All in all be at $250.00 with shipping and transfer fees. I can live with that. Let me know what holsters you guys have for them. Looking for a pocket holster and probably an appendix holster. I just want it for some pocket carry over summer here and there and while dressed up for fancy dinners and weddings.

    Good pick up. I have. Gen 1 LCP and have grown to like it a lot. Check out Remora holsters for a good pocket holster. Sticky outer material makes it stay put in pocket when you draw.

    I was looking for as small as I could get for a few specific circumstances a year when it's either no gun or the ruger. I have heard great things about them though. Everyone I talked to really likes them. I like the 2 much better than the gen one though. The trigger and ergonomics are much better on the two. I'm also hoping my wife will like it and spur her that last nudge to get her permit.

    I have the LCP Custom.. got it for around $220 just before the II came out. I put some grip tape on and it's not bad. Even with the Custom the trigger is pretty bad, I'm interested in how much better the II is.

    Get one, you won't regret it. It's a great little gun. Not just for the money. The grip is fantastic, and the sights are way better than my Glock 43. Only problem is finding 10 round magazines.

    Man, you suck, lol. Twelve rounders should be a dime a dozen for you then. Lucky bastard. I had to buy pinned ones off of ebay for $30 a pop since Taurus doesn't even make 10 rounders any more.

    Recently bought a ruger american compact, 12+1 and 17+1. Of course I'm neutured to 10 rounds because it's safer for the rest of the state. Damn,that measley 2 round shortage can sure aggravate you.

    The ruger lcp II trigger is way better than the one. I never felt the customs trigger. I really like the trigger one the LCP II and the grip. I have smaller hands and that's why I bought one as well.

    Well to be fair, for a 'pocket pistol' they don't want to go too light..

    Still hasn't even shipped. I'm a bit disappointed honestly. I looked at their site and it says 7-10 business days to ship a firearm. Why does it take so long. My ffl is on file. If that's the case it should be no different than anything else. Oh well I guess I will just keep waiting. I'm not really in a hurry, but I'm just impatient.

    I was going back and fourth between this model and the bodyguard, I think i decided on the ruger but will probably hold off until spring.

    I own a generation one. Very small frame. Fits perfectly into my flannel shirt chest pocket or in a pair of sweatpants pocket.

    Never considered it as a CCW weapon. Rather just something to keep in my pocket when I’m just walking around the house Or laying on the couch watching TV or when I absolutely can’t carry my holstered fire alarm.

    Exactly what I will do. Back up or when nothing else will work with my outfit. Maybe a gun gun or a quick to the store and back, but that's it.

    Palmetto is often late with shipping, small price to pay for some of the great deals they have.

    I just don't get it. Hire one more person. It takes what 5 minutes to ship a package. Next time I'll pay more to get it faster honestly. I hate waiting for stuff to ship after I buy it. I don't know why it bugs me so much.

    Seriously though add $1.00 to every order and get things shipped faster and you will get more business. I have family pictures on Saturday and that would be the perfect use for this gun. I won't make it. I have a Christmas party on 12/16. Another good opportunity I'll never get back. Ah now I'm just whining. I'll carry my gun anyway.

    I know the feeling. I had bought a knife online on Wednesday the 29th and it still hasn’t shipped even though they billed me for it.

    I give money to the African orphans so I'm covered there. A friend of mine runs an orphanage in Africa.
