Ruger LCP II


tercel89

Recommended Posts

I've have had a Ruger LCP II in .380ACP for a few months now. Got it new and been carrying it in a DeSantis Super Fly pocket holster. I got to say this is the easiest gun to carry that I ever had. Just put it in your front pocket and go. No big heavy gun belt and no belt holster. I've put 100 rds of American Eagle 95gr though it so far just to check function. So far so good. Big thumbs up ! It comes with the flush fit magazine plate and the "finger groove" plate. I use the flush fit one. This is a very good gun. I've only had one other .380 and that was a CZ83. Loved that gun and it ate any ammo but it was a bigger gun. This LCP is really neat and small.

I have the same setup, I just bought the II a couple of months ago but have had the original and the same holster for several years. The II is a nice improvement. I carry mine in my back pocket.

Have the original plus the desantis   nemesis holster.  Use a VersaCarry device with it occasionally.  Have shot it as a BUG in a match.  Certainly adequate but bigger guns much more fun, faster, and accurate.  But a great gun for its purpose.

Is carrying in your back pocket comfortable, while sitting down? Hard to get to, if driving? Have not carried a wallet in my back pocket for 20 years always threw my back in a twist. Front pocket seems a better option for comfort. Just asking from some one with personal experience back pocket carrying> Thanks

I always carry mine in my strong side front pocket, using a leather pocket holster. Extra mag goes in the other pocket.

Which holster? I have a nemesis. Wouldn't mind something better

It’s a no name leather holster I picked up at Rural King, for $15 about a year ago. Has the hook on on the bottom that catches on the pocket as you pull it out. Works well!

This is it.  The only thing it says on It Made in Paraguay. 

Today I bought a Nemesis and a Fobus holster for the LCP.  The leather pocket holster will stay with my P32, more than likely.

I pocket carry a kel tec p3at on occasion. That Ruger looks to be much nicer. May have to consider upgrading at some point if the size difference is negligible 

The original LCP is a knockoff of the P3AT. It did have better fit and finish. But they ripped off the design from Keltec

I have a Keltec P3AT that I used to carry in my back pocket in a DeSantis Super Fly holster. It looked just like a wallet. I found it to be very comfortable and a very easy way to carry. My only concern was that it might eject the mag by sitting on it, although it never happened. I stopped using that setup only because my Keltec started developing some reliabilty issues, and that was my excuse to buy a G43 :)

I tried Undertech shorts for that and never looked back. Unbelievably easy and comfortable way to carry any size handgun, IMO.

I have a P3AT and an LCP custom (not the LCP II). As Mike says, functionally they're identical. The Ruger is generally nicer to look at and to shoot, but it's also slightly bigger. I have a +1 mag for the LCP which contributes to both the bigger and nicer to shoot.

The finish is really my only complaint with the Kel-Tec. Mine has some wear on the bluing of the slide (see pic). Several times in the past I have tried to order a parkerized replacement slide from Kel-Tec, but if I remember correctly it has been out of stock each time.

Do you notice the size difference without the +1 mag and carrying in your pocket?

I've never carried it without the +1 mag, but always in my pocket. It's a little thicker and a little longer, but that only matters if I'm wearing more fitted clothes.

Well I am into several weeks now carrying this LCPII in my front pocket and I gotta tell you that it is so comfortable that it is making a "lazy carrier" out of me. It makes me want to carry it rather than my usual Glock 30 or my other double stack guns on a belt holster or inside the pant holster. I'm gonna put another box of ammo through it this week . I really like it so far. When I got it I was between a Glock 36 and this LCPII just to buy with some extra money from my other job as a fun gun , I hated to risk the previous failures of the 36 so I got this LCP II. Worked out great . Galco makes a leather pocket holster which I like but they want like $60 for it so I'll stick with the DeSantis Super Fly . I like leather for the sake of having leather but the DeSantis is purely function which is great ! A perfect combination in my opinion and experience.

I bought the DeSantis Nemesis and really like it.  I gave the little Keltec P32 with the no name leather holster to my daughter. She carries it all the time now.

      Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 For sale. Like New Condition with box and manual. Purchased in Feb 2017. Taken to the range once, fired about 225 rounds of various FMJ and JHP ammo. All ammo ran flawlessly. The gun was surprisingly accurate but the trigger bit my finger more than I was comfortable with. None of the You Tube reviews mentioned anything about this so I guess I was the odd man out on this. Anyway, I'd rather sell it and get something that doesn't pinch my trigger finger.
      $180 + bill of sale to TN resident and DL or Carry permit.

      I might have made a huge mistake, boys. Could lead to a divorce. I stopped in my LGS (Crossroads Guns, in Fountain City), for some HV .22LR for my Stoeger Luger. I walked out with the .22 rounds and after putting a Walther PPK/s in lay-a-way.  It’s a beaut, a Interarms Stainless steel pistol,  with both mags, box, manuals cleaning rod... all for 5 bills plus tax and BCG. Lay-a-way for 12 months!
      Oh Lord, what have I done???  😆😆😆
      Looks like this!

      Anybody ever try and run 7mm subsonic? Was thinking about a 300 Blackout but I'm not stocked on any ammo or components and after seeing 20 rnds for $30 at the LGS I think that boat has sailed for now.
      I've got an old Contender in 7mm TCU that I haven't shot in eons. Wondered if anyone had tried running something like that suppressed? I do have some makins' to get that going.

      Went to an estate sale yesterday and picked up this Stoeger Luger .22, with an aluminum frame. I think it’s one of the best examples of one that I’ve seen.  Really a bit surprised by the size and heft. It’s very close to the only Luger P08 that I’ve ever fired! Hopefully I’ll get to shot it tomorrow.
