LCPs seem to be out of stock at many online retailers. Is there a shortage? If so, this deal is especially slick.

the LCP is one of the best selling guns right now. they are snapped up almost as soon as stores get them in. if you are on the fence, i would grab one now. it will go OOS soon likely and while it will come back in stock the price will jump up to $250. after the largest US mass shooting that just occurred in Orlando, expect these to get snapped up extremely fast by new gun owners wishing to conceal carry for the first time (new CCW license holders).

also i would grab extra mags before the price goes up due to this shooting. you can get 7 round extended mags for ~ $30, or 6 rounders for ~ $25. i'm not trying to act paranoid...the price gouging is real and occurs very quickly. CTD is known to gouge whenever there is a shooting like this

I have the custom and the regular LCP's... the custom is neat looking, but I wouldn't spend $20 more for it again. I hate hate hated the tall sights, they catch on everything and it's not a range gun... the triggers feel exactly the same and I have very large fingers/hands, and finally the guide rods are basically the same, except polished..

If you shot both blindfolded, you'd never know the difference.

I traded slides with my girlfriend so I could pocket carry better.

Don't get me wrong, I like the LCP, but if you don't need the sights, don't waste the extra $20 bucks.

Sportsman's guide usually have the regular LCP for $199 in stock.. Just wait a few days if sold out.

It's actually pretty accurate considering.... But after 6 shots you'll feel like you've been kicked in the crotch...

Curious what you meant by "not a range gun" and also when you said after 6 shots you would "feel like you've been kicked in the crotch?" I'm new to all this handgun lingo. Thanks also for the tip about the regular version at Sportsmans...

Any other thoughts about a man's first handgun purchase and CTC training? TIA

This type of handgun is for last chance self defense and is tiny, so it's pocketable and lightweight.

The .380 round is somewhat large for this size of gun and thus creates a recoil that hurts your hand, to be blunt. It's a jarring impact each trigger pull to your hand.

As such, it's not meant for you go out and shoot 250 rounds through it at the range like you would a larger handgun. This really will hurt your hand after a half a box of ammo...

Practice with it, yes... But not a single source of range shooting..

It's meant to get you out of the situation, not to stay in the situation.

I wouldn't recommend this as your first handgun. This was designed as a conceal carry gun if you absolutely need something this small and light. If you buy this as your one and only gun, keep in mind that range trips will be short. Even with a hogue slip on grip this is not a pleasant gun to shoot. The LCP is one of many handguns I have and it serves a purpose (i.e. conceal carry with summer attire, or when I have to swear a slim fit suit). Regularly I go with a LC9S Pro or a j-frame (have both LCR and 642). The LC9S is a much better range gun than the LCP but my full size handguns are much more enjoyable.

My recommendation is to get a larger size handgun like the Ruger 9E when it's on sale for $300 shipped and then get a conceal carry gun as well such as the LCP or others. When it comes to handguns, smaller actually means more difficult to shoot. Many people make that mistake when buying their first gun. I see it all the time with the j-frame revolvers. A lot of women flock to the small revolvers bc they are ideal purse guns. They think bc it's small it's easy to shoot. Then when they actually go to range they can't get through more than a few reloads bc of the recoil felt through the hand. It's hard to practice when you can only get 20 rounds or so off and then have to call it quits

I agree. I'm a Glock fanboy, but I also have some others and I have to say that my LC9S pro is awesome for its size. But I prefer my Glock 19.

For pocket or purse carry these little things (LCPs) are great. But hated the Custom due to the larger sights... very prone to snag when pulled out of my purse. Holstered was less problematic. I could see no advantage to larger sights with a gun this small. And they ARE small - bordering on 'cute'.

As for shooting it, mine was reliable but hated the recoil and jump... made my hand sting like a .... well... it wasn't fun at the range for sure. Sold it. Bought a Glock 42 for carry - and it's not bad at the range either.

I did rep the post though, because these little guns are hard to find anywhere near this price point in my area. Heck, they're hard to find at all.
