None in the stores around here. Everyone they get is gone within hours.
one or two at every gunshow with a ;) markup.

Wow.

I put my name on the list at a local gun shop a several months ago, was told there were about 20 people in front of me. ~6 weeks later I got a call to come pick up my LCP. Unfortunately I was out of town so I asked the clerk if I could pick it up on Monday, but then I got held up and didn't get home untill Friday. I figured I was a day late and a dollar short, was still really busy and basically I just let it slide. Figured I'd probably survive with just my NAA & PPK for .380s.

The next Monday, a full 10 days after the first call, I got another call from the shop wondering where the heck I was... I stammered and stuttered and apologized and told them I'd be there in 15 minutes. Then I went and picked up my new LCP... for $259!

I was a loyal Green Mountains Guns customer before this, I'm even more loyal now.

I have not seen one at the local shop that half his inventory is Ruger. I don't know if he is getting any in and they are going out that fast but there is never one in the case.

A dealer one hour from me had 3 LCP's in stock. I bought one forf $279.99, someone else bought one other, and I don't know if he still has the third or not. He had it in stock for several weeks before I decided to grab it.

To my surprise the gun guy at Bass Pro in Charlotte said they had 11 of them, but all were gone now. He said they are starting to sell more sub-compacts now.

Adventure Outdoors in Atlanta has them. The guy in front of me in checkout line bought one last Saturday. I heard them say they've sold over 200 of them since they were introduced.

I have yet to see one in person. No shops I've asked have had any.

The last time I visited my dealer he had one in stock, only a week old. He said they tend to go quite quickly, and that he's going to start stocking more exotic personal defense rounds in 9mm kurz. Apparently it's an in-demand caliber these days.

I have never seen one in a store. I got lucky and scored a nice deal on a slightly used one.

Guy I met at the range on Sunday had waited three weeks for his. He wasn't impressed either. Couldn't get through a mag without a jam of some kind.

'Bout a month wait for the last bunch of 3 or 4 (sold before he got 'em). I put my name on a waiting list (I'm #4 in line) for one at $280.

Nope, the new Ruger LCP's are drifting in one or two at a time; with
customers that reserved them long ago being waited on first~! :uhoh:

I saw one at a small gun shop in Canton Tx. I think it was priced in the mid $300s, and he is usually much cheaper than anyone around on guns that Wally world doesn’t have.

My local shop has one priced at $495. Central Florida area. Not real happy with their gouging and told them so. Thier response: Supply and Demand, dude! Last time I buy ANY gun from them.

Weapons Unlimited?
And their Gun Show persona Shoot Straight?

:rolleyes: They often have good deals but their price on the LCP is pure greed.

Bull's Eye in Lawrenceville, GA has a few. They even put one in their handgun rental case.

Saw one, at $299.

The only other one I've seen in the flesh was at a gun show, for the absurd price of $385.

If u can find one for $300, I would buy it, to wait and maybe save $30 or so, to me is not worth waiting for, when you don't know if and when you will even find one for that price. If you want it ,buy it and just shoot it like u stole it...Great gun..

None here in Joplin, MO. Just a waiting list, 2 on the $329, and 8 on the $266.88. So I'm on both.

The second dealer knows his bathrooms aren't as clean. He even plans to advertise "the second cleanest bathrooms in town!" You gotta love that competitive small town spirit.

I'll wait for the $266. The difference is 150 rounds of ammo. .380 is pricey, it may get me to start reloading after all.

Just got my LCP after a 2-week wait ($289). I was 4th on the waiting list-don't know how many the shop got in, but I assume it was at least 4 since I was 4th on the list.

Dealer said the magazines were harder to find than the gun-he had about 8 on the wall, but said he lucked up and found some at a supplier and took all he had. I bought 2 magazines 2 weeks ago ($19/each) when I ordered the gun.

Saw one in a store a couple days ago. Price was a little high at $329 (IIRC).

FWIW, I got a chance to put some rounds through one a couple weeks ago. With the exception of one type of surplus ammo, it went bang every time with no problems feeding. It was accurate enough at SD ranges (we shot moslty at 5 - 15 yards). The recoil was negligible and it was easy to control and get back on target for follow up shots.

I'm mostly a shotgun and rifle guy, but the LCP seemed like a handy little pistol, whether for a very concealable primary or as a backup.

Academy carries the LCP, now. I didn't see if anyone mentioned that.

One of my local shops, not a nationwide chain, has had two or three of them come in, but they've flown off the shelf almost as soon as they've come in. I bought mine from them only an hour after they unboxed it for display.

I have one but the waiting list is almost 6 weeks. $330 is the usual price so dont pay $400.

One place (a pawn shop) in town managed to get them and decided, since they were high demand, to price them at $345. So I went to my other favorite place, added my name to the list, and said it wouldn't be a problem if it was a 6 month wait.

I got the call the day before leaving on a long trip and told them to just pass it on to the next person, and that I'd get the next one after I returned. Well, got back and was visiting the store a few weeks later, and they had one on the shelf for $289. When I picked it up, the guy said he thought it was the same one they'd called me about almost a month earlier!

So one place in town couldn't keep them in stock for $345, and this (nicer) place, managed to hold onto one for a month.

:)It would pay to wait until Ruger gets caught up with the demand. See if the gun lives up to what you expect, could turn out to be a dud.

My buddy grabbed one about 2 weeks after they first hit stores. I think he was on a list for maybe 5 or 6 days before they got his in. It was at Keith's Sporting Goods in Portland. I believe he paid about $275. His has been flawless compared to his P-3AT which choked on every magazine I ever tried to put through it.

I asked at Gun Broker (not related to the website) in Tigard the other day. They said if I wanted one, I'd be about 10th on the waiting list and that it would be 5 or 6 weeks. They go for $279 there. I can't comprehend online dealers asking north of $350 or $400 for them! It seems like here in Oregon, if you look hard enough and have about 3 or 4 weeks worth of patience, you'll grab one for less than $300.

Academy does carry them - I checked with my local store, there were 6 in the 100 store chain. No interstore transfers available.

So now I'm on 3 lists.

We've had a waiting list on them that averages ~two weeks.

$270 is a good price. $290 is a nice markup. Over $300 is gouging.

Also, bear in mind that, out of six specimens I know of, four have already gone back to Ruger with feeding problems and a fifth most likely will be.
