I finally got my LCP after waiting months for it.....When I got it , I field stripped it, cleaned it, and lubed it... I also got to geeking on it and polished the feedramp and breech face with a felt tipped Dremel.I took it to the range today(Angeles) and got to test her out... I had some Remington 102gr Golder Sabers HP to try out and at the range they had some Fiocchi 95gr FMJ, so I bought some of those to try ...Well , both of those rounds cycled PERFECTLY...after 100rds I did not have ONE malf....I was very suprised..I was expecting atleast a couple .....I did have a slight problem that I ONLY expereinced with the finger extension magazine..The problem is that I would accidently press the mag release button while I was firing....I have fairly large hands but I figured out how to hold the pistol with out pressing the button on accident...

BTW...this thing kicks like a race horse...Hand was pretty tired after those 100 rds...

I give the Ruger LCP a A+ for being a Reliable, Decent power packing , and very excellent for CCW or as a BUG...Targets were at 15ft... http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu319/glockpoppin/1241571603.jpg http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu319/glockpoppin/1241571600.jpg http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu319/glockpoppin/1241571598.jpg

Thanks for the info. Sure wish I could get one. I surely will after CGF defeats the roster, but that could be years.

Nice .32! On a similar topic, I was at Big 5 yesterday looking at the Mossy 500 specials and saw a box of Remington .32ACP selling for $32+ for 50 rounds! The sad, thing was there was only 1 box left so someone must have been willing to pay the price for some.

So we aren't doing the NRF thing yet? I have a friend that wants a Baby DE, but they are now imported by KBI instead of Magnum and apparently KBI is not interested in even submitting the pistol for the roster. . .

Feel sorry for my friend...I like the LCP too! Might even get the wife to carry that one.

The LCP is a .380.....not a .32

Oh, my bust :). I assumed since it looked just like my P32 that it was a .32. It's more like a P3AT. I had a P3AT and sold it because it was more abusive to my hands than the P32.

I highly recommend the DeSanti Nemesis for a pocket holster. I have used one for the past 6 years. I had to buy one every year because the tackiness wears off but they are $20 a holster so it's no sweat. A friend of mine picked up a super cool kydex holster for me which I actually use more than the Nemesis. I don't remember who the maker is but the holster is thin, light and stays in your pocket when you need it to.

Here are some pics of my P32
