The Ruger LCP still interest me but only if the fix is really a fix.

If any of you have a "fixed" Ruger LCP that you have shot a bunch since the fix, I would like to know your experience with it.

A buddy of mine has one. Couldn't tell any difference after it came back but of course he hadn't dropped it either.

Google the ElsiePea Forum. They have answered your question in detail there.

and run a couple hundred rounds through mine. Unfortunately the Ice storm had taken down a lot of small trees and limbs on the road into the range. Since I ws not driving my truck, I decided to turn around. Once I get a chance to break this thing in I will be sure to let everyone know what I think.

Just sent mine off this AM, although it ran fine with all different sorts of HPs.

Just got mine back today after TWO MONTHS. I sent it back because it was jamming and then they had their recall too. I haven't tried it yet, but my original impression was that it was even much less reliable than the Kel-Tecs, and I'd never trust them in any emergency. Furthermore, Ruger said they've enclosed a free mag for my trouble but they didn't. So, so far I've been underwhelmed with the whole experience. We'll see what they've fixed when I get to the range.

Tried it out: repeated failures to feed and one failure to fire. Called Ruger and spoke to the tech. He said to start filing or send it back again. Kel-Tec redux. Phooey.

f1, the first hundred rounds or so, it is not uncomon for some auto's to have a similar problem. these are mass produced off the line guns. and as such, may have a burr or two that has to wear in. also, if you did not clean the gun before shooting, all of the shipping oil is collecting burnt powder and making a nice thick sludge that will impair your pistol from working. when i bought mine, i took it apart to clean it, and HONED off all the sharp edges i could without a lot of trouble. i still had some ftf issues. but after "break in" it has been fine. if it continues to have problems after 200 rounds, then i would talk to ruger about repairs!

The LCP is a POS in my book, glad to say I had one but also glad I sold it. Saving up for the Springfield EMP 40 caliber

Mine has been flawless, and I just sent it back to Ruger for the recall.

I don't really see why some people love the Keltec but trash the Ruger. They are the same design, and if one has a problem, so does the other. The main difference is that Keltec can't afford a recall.

So far I hate both the little Kel-Tecs AND the Ruger Kel-Tec clone. I thought Ruger was going to take the KT and add a bit of weight but refine it so that it is actually reliable, like maybe even right out of the box - like other products are supposed to be - especially products that can mean life or death - they don't tell you to polish up a new car's brakes and run it in for 5,000 miles before it's reliable!

Yes, I know many people swear by the Kel Tecs, and now the LCP too, but me, I've never found a tiny automatic that I can trust.

Chuck - That .40 is a whole different class of gun, much bigger.

Moose - I'll mess with it a little more and file it some more and lube it and try it out again, but I'm afraid I'm hearing the same song i heard when I had my misadventures with the Kel-Tec .32 and .380.
