If you can defend boot carry at all, then the LCP is as good of option as anything, and better than most. Lighter, smaller, and lower profile. Boot carry isn’t a good option, as a whole, but in the context of boot carry, the LCP is as good as it can get. I’ve carried my LCP in my boot very frequently, as a backup to my primary carried SOB or appendix. There are civilian defensive scenarios where a boot gun, especially a back-up, makes as much sense as anything. There are some civilian defense scenarios where a boot gun might even make sense as a primary. Less common than the average civilian defensive scenario, but being prepared is better than not.
