Just saw the LCP II the other day - not a bad little gun compared to the original.


...should've picked a Browning Black Label though.

Yeah that is the one I chose the LCP II. Just by the looks of it you can tell they took a lot more pride in making it. Cant wait to shoot it.

I picked up a Kel-Tec P3-at a few years ago for tiny pocket carry and can say its not the best looking and most fun to shoot...but for $150 in the box it was a pretty good deal and has reliably fired several hundred rounds...but that LCP 2 is a nice looking and comfortable gun in my hands...may have to go find me a deal on one someday.

I really like the trigger on the LCP 2. I got it at a gun show a few months back for $249 out-the-door, though that did include them giving me a 10% veterans discount (without even asking).

That's cool. I'm glad they made it right for you. Real customer service is kind of hard to find these days, so this is a good story.

Indeed! It turned out better for me that the gun had that issue.

Not a bad price for that pistol, the LCP II.

So for those of you that are carrying a .380, what do you have it loaded with?

federal premium defense in mine, but i think they're in part to blame for why my mag won't capture 100% of the time.

While it isn't my EVERYDAY carry gun, when I do carry it generally have it loaded with Federal Premium low recoil Hydra-shok 90 grain. Read great reviews of Hydra-shok or Hornady Critical defense..I've put both thru it with no issues. I've also shot Winchester Elite 95 grn with no issues.

So the reason I was asking about ammo choices is that what I've been reading is that HP ammo doesn't penetrate deep enough to meet FBI standards and that FMJ is recommended. Common thought is to load your handgun with good HP ammo but because the velocity of the .380's is so low, that when they expand and they are going so slow they fail to penetrate very deeply.

Anyway just some food for thought and curious if anyone has heard anything similar. The LCP really surprised me as to how small it was. Just not sure if I have any situations that I could use it.
