What's the size of an LCP that points more like Glocks or J frame?

Picked up an LCP as that's as big as I can hide most of the time. Problem is it just doesn't point like any other handguns I own. It points down considerably compared to anything else.

Not a problem at arms length I suppose, but it's a problem that I'm just not comfortable with.

I do NOT want to re-learn how point shoot and/or grip for just one firearm.

Any thin .380's that have a bit more beef at the backstrap (not sides/thickness) so when gripped it doesn't point towards the ground?

I have found that the NPOA (natural point of aim) of the Sig P238 is more in line with a Glock than the LCP is. However, the P238 utilizes a 1911 manual of arms which you said was a no-go and is considerably more expensive than an LCP.

The Kahr P380 might be a good option as well. It is DAO, but it is also more expensive (if you are on a budget), at about $500-$575

Thanks.

I don't mind spending more, but yes, the manual safety is a no go. I just want to pull the trigger. I'll check out the Kahr P380.

I seem have very good luck point shooting my lcp, in fact sometimes it kinda surprises me but that just goes to show we're all a bit different.

Good luck on your search!

Try the new Smith Bodyguard .380.

The sig 232 is larger than the LCP but offers a full grip, double action, and a decocker lever. The 232 is significantly larger than the LCP more on the lines of a glock 26 in terms of overall size, but slimmer in width. My wife has a LCP and i have never been able to shoot the pistol with any degree of accuracy, but my wife shoots the pistol very well. I am able to shoot the 232 well because i can get a full grip that fits my hand better than the thin LCP grip.

If you shoot 1911s you will not have to relearn anything with the Sig P238! The manual safety is completely natural and is "off" in the blink of the eye as the weapon is being brought to aim! If you don't shoot 1911s, please disregard... but you ought to try them! :cool:

It's not the lack of size of the grip on the LCP, it's the lack of "hump" on the back side of it. It points great for me IF I only grip it with my middle finger and leave my ring finger loose. Once I put pressure at the bottom of the grip with my ring finger, it pulls the POA down low. It's even worse with the "extended" clip.

Yea, no 1911 style safety or decockers for me thank you.

Although I gotta admint the 1911 is VERY comfortable for me as far as grip is concerned.
