    I was at the range this morning with my bro-in-law who just purchased a new ruger LCP...While we were signing in, one of the attendants there who we've gotten to know pretty good saw his new LCP and said "they're not bad little pistols but you should have waited another couple of months for the LCP 9mm that's about to come out"...Has anybody else heard this?

    Seems very unlikely, as a 9mm Luger cartridge wouldn't even fit in an LCP frame or magazine.
    And if they make it big enough for 9mm, then it wouldn't be an LCP,
    it would be a Ruger SR-9c.

    I've heard the rumor. Until I see something official I wouldn't hold your breath!

    I heard their gonna make a Blue LCP, other than that I've heard no new news.

    How so? The SR9c has a double-stack magazine, not single-stack like the LCP. LCP stands for "Little Carry Pistol," not necessarily ".380 only pocket pistol." So if Ruger introduced a very small, single-stack 9mm carry pistol similar in size to a Kahr PM9, it would be more than appropriate to include it in the LCP family.

    The LCP as it exists is not going to handle 9mm Luger. It would have to be scaled up in size.
    Such a gun would be desirable. Are you listening, Ruger?

    Well, since they all ripped off KelTec in design (Taurus TCP and Ruger LCP), why not model their 9mm LCP after the P-11 or PF9? :)

    That would be kinda cool, but I would have to wonder about the recoil in a pistol that small in a 9mm.

    It would sting for sure, and the recoil spring design would have to be seriously beefed up.

    I would KILL for a slightly up-sized 9mm LCP with real sights and a full function slide stop. (a safety would be great too)

    I would buy one in a heartbeat.

    P11s have some bite in their recoil...it's nothing ammo selection and training can't solve though.

    Well, Ruger has ditched the polymer frame and recently introduced a .357 Mag LCR. Given that, I wouldn't be surprised if they introduced a compact, single stack 9x19mm, and called it the LCP 9mm.
    Wouldn't surprise me either.

    I think an LCP based upsized 9mm could be smaller than a PF-9. I'd rather see the bigger LCP.

    I wish they would make a slightly scaled up single column LCP9 that that had a low-pro bobbed hammer w/ rounded off rubberized sites and was DA/SA and came standard w/ crimson trace's and a pocket holster to accommodate it, all for under $400. It would make a great CCW starter kit and would still be practical for the seasoned gunnies. I can see it in my head, it would be great the way I see it.

    *Shudder* LCP in 9mm? That sounds downright unpleasant. Just get a kahr pm9, that way you have a 9mm that is not much bigger and has better sights.

    Sounds like a kahr pm9. ;) You can even get one with a safety. I don't work for them by the way, I just think this gun is the bees knees.

    All LCPs are 9mm....

    9x17mm. Sometimes called 9mm kurz, 9mm corto............. Depends on where the ammo was made...........

    too bad these terms are so dichotomous :neener:

    I wouldnt mind a "Ruger PF9"

    I like the Kahr's, but they're REALLY pricey.

    At this time, an LCP9 i could afford, a top end Kahr, unless i find the exact model i want used...not so much. Plus the one with the safety is not the model i prefer dimensionally. If they made a P380 with a safety i'd really have to put it on layaway....

    I wish my P7 had an alloy frame (So does every P7 owner, lol), that's the same size overall as a Walther PPS, just heavier.

    Then get the 709 Slim.. it is why I didn't get the LCP.
