    and where?

    i hear that ruger has fixed most of the problems with the LCP so i feel the need to pick one up.

    buds has it for $284 shipped.

    thanks.

    It's going to be tough to beat Buds.

    Thanks Texas....I was about to link the op to the site ;) . Hoffman's is one of the bigger, if not the biggest, gun shops in CT. They are for the most part decent to deal with, I shop them a frequently as I can because their prices and specials are the best around.

    Also keep in mind Buds price includes shipping, that Hoffman's place for example doesn't.

    I actually like the raspberry color. Ive seen different variations of that color in person, is there more than one red color or are the pictures online just different looking?

    Best price around here was at a small local gun show in Cape Coral for $300. Of course, the same day I saw one at the gun range in Ft.Myers for $439 :what:
    The locals will know whick shop I am talking about.

    Scheel's has them for $299.00 right now. I have two other pistols to buy first, but I will likely be getting one of these in the near future. We looked at one a while back and my wife (whose main carry weapon is a vintage Browning High Power) said that LCP had to stand for Little Cute Pistol

    FWIW:

    I paid $275.00 plus tax (7%)for my first LCP a couple of months ago. I lucked out and there was a 2nd new mag in the box. Most times I understand they only come with one. (When I bought my 2nd, and JoAnn bought hers they only came with one mag.)

    You need to get the best price you can because sooner or later you'll be wanting to add a Crimson Trace Laser ($150), or a slide refinish/nite sight upgrade from Innovative Arms for ($160)..

    Or both.... ;)

    Best Wishes,

    Jesse

    Well, I guess I got raped... $340 out the door. I dont know, schruggs. Maybe not, $299+tax+pics, I guess adds up. Probably could have gotten it cheaper if I went the internet route or looked around harder/longer ( sorry, that just sounded terrible :) )

    And PX15, I LOVE the dovetailed NS, very nice my friend, very nice.

    At the last gun show I went to about a month ago, they were selling
    for around $250.00 plus tax. I wish I'd waited to buy my LCP (I paid
    $295.00 plus tax):(

    PX15, I LIKE the sights. I'm not into the laser byt those fixed sights look like something that will work. I'm off to their website.

    I am more than pleased with the work done by Phillip (& Jenny) at Innovative Arms.. Top quality, look and work great.. :D

    MY first LCP had slide wear from daily cc and was in need of a refinish job, and the package offered by IA is for a satin slide refinish, (necessitated by the sight work done on the slide), the addition of sights, the front (only) is a night sight (Trijicon H3 10 I believe) while the rear sight is standard, but beveled in such a way that you could cycle a round with one hand (in a crisis obviously) pulling against the pants leg.

    The quality of the work, and materials, is top notch, and you can visit the dedicated LCP forum (www.elsiepeaforum.com) and use the search function for "Innovative Arms sights" and read the reviews from many, many folks who are well pleased with the work.

    The price at the time I had my slide and barrel work done was $150.00 for the slide/sight upgrade, and as an option, for $5 bucks more (each) Phillip will mirror polish the feed ramp, (always a nice thing), and mirror polish the barrel.. (Which just looks good)..

    I'll probably wind up sending off my 2nd LCP when I have the money to have the same thing done to it.

    When and if you call, please tell Phillip or Jenny hello.

    Great folks, great product..

    Best Wishes,

    Jesse

    Local shop had them at right around $260 OTD. That's the best I've seen.

    I've seen them just under $300 at most of the shops local to me. Too bad their too small for my hands or I'd have one.

    When they first came out they ran over $300+ here. Of course, I bought one. Thought that it was a steal when I saw them priced over $400 at the gunshow. I can buy them under $300 everyday now.
