The Ruger LCP is the company's most compact offering to date, featuring a 2.75-inch barrel and an overall length of just 5.16 inches. Ordinarily, I would not mention the width of a pistol, but in the case of the LCP, it is worth noting. The LCP boasts a width of just .82 inches, making it truly concealable in just about any location. As noted, the frame is constructed from an extremely lightweight, glass-filled polymer. Alongside the alloy steel slide and barrel, the LCP weighs in at an unbelievable 9.4 ounces and is manageable by men and women of all sizes. Other features include fixed front and rear sights that are integrated into the slide and an optional finger grip extension floor plate. As noted, the pistol is chambered for .380 ACP and includes one 6-round magazine.
With the Ruger LCP, concealed carry has never been more comfortable. Whether you are looking for a back-up pistol for a full-sized pistol or something to replace your everyday carry, the Ruger LCP is definitely worthy of a look or two.

I call it my summer pistol because it fits in a pocket and you forget it's there. I like it so much got one for my girlfriend to carry
The LCP 380 is probably one of the most popular contemporary CCW pistols on the market today. Having recently bought one, I can see why. It is very light, easy to handle, has adequate ammo capacity, has a smooth trigger, and reasonable short-range accuracy. I would suggest buy & install the laser-sight from Laser-Max that is designed for this pistol, as it allows for much easier aiming than the installed sights under dark conditions, or during sudden encounters. There are also several types of enhanced ammo available in 380 which can improve the "stopping power" of the weapon considerably in spite of its moderate caliber.
