A few months ago I was looking around and could not find anyone who had really beat up on a Ruger LCP. Now, before you get upset, I know this is not what the gun is designed to do. I get it. But I think it is valuable to see what a weapons system can take even if you never intend (nor should you) abuse it.
The pistol did fail, but was able to continue to work with some assistance to the slide. I don’t carry the LCP often. I am of the opinion it is not “enough gun” that I would want to use to defend myself. But for those trips to the gym or other times you need a small pocket gun, you would be hard pressed to find a better option (for the money).
