Ruger LCP

Nice summer carry piece. Same reliable Ruger construction. Fires everything I've put through it (250 + rounds). If you have large hands, get the aftermaket grip extensions. They have better adherence to your little finger than the factory model . Add a "Clipdraw" or use a pocket holster. Down side are the sights-they're nonexistent I added a Crimson Trace laser, and with a little tweaking is darn accurate. Yep, $ 525 plus tax is a little pricey for a laser sighted mouse - gun, but it's well made, reliable, accurate, and takes up the size of your wallet.

Fun to shoot. Easily one of the most concealable pistols available. One negative to consider is the alloy slide. Been shooting since 1952 and learned early on to protect arms with a light coat of oil on a regular basis. This one though needs oiling every time you wear it to inhibit rust. Parkerizing might help, but shouldn't be necessary for a new pistol. Ruger should have considered stainless for the slide.
