What did everybody carry before the LCP came along? Mine was a Glock 23 in a fanny pack. I like the LCP in my front pocket a lot better. My wife carry a Kel-Tec .32

The LCP was my first CCW. Everything else I look at, is compared to the LCP. Size, weight, caliber, etc.

So far nothing else compares.

carried kt products until I came across my Kahr PM9 which worked every time. I just could not trust my 3 kt's that I owned. Tried to but just couldn't get them to work wirth a damn... If my kt's worked as good as my lcp does, I would never have owned a lcp.

I started out carring a S&W 38 Special 5 shot Model 36. It is a very nice carry but you only get 5 shots. About a year ago I purchased an XD-40 and carried it in a fanny pack or in a Maxpedition Shoulder pack. Have had the LCP for a couple of months now and have been carring it most of the time. Sometimes I carry it and the XD. I have a Desantis ? holster for the LCP and it fits real nice in the front pocket. Have even carried it in my shirt pocket now that the weather is getting cooler and I wear a jacket. When I purchased the CT I modified the holster to accept the added width by removing the stitching and reforming the holster. Cheaper than buying a new one and it works great. :)

I just got my LCP with the intent of using it as a BUG, or when I absolutely can't carry my primary ccw. I primarily carry a 10mm or 40 caliber.

Main reason is especially in winter with heavier coats and clothing, I like the more potent cartridges.

My wife has had a Kel-tec for awhile and she carries it as a BUG. She either carries a 9mm or 40 for her primary pistol (both glocks- mine are Smith"s)

I've been carrying either a Kahr PM9, a S&W Bodyguard Airweight, or a KelTec P32...depending on the season.

Haven't gotten the lil' Ruger yet.

with what you mentioned not sure I would go out and buy a lcp, unless you peddle the kt 32, which IMO is at the very low end of a caliber for defense. Ur first two mentioned would be my choice for 24/7 carry. I have zero issues carrying my PM9 in my front pocket anywhere...

I started with a S&W 38 Special Model 36 then got a Kahr CW9, which offers a few more rounds and is a bit slimmer. I have a Taurus PT25 which I would drop in my jacket if going out in the back yard but now the LCP fits that bill.

Colt New Agent. 1911's still are and always will be my favorite carry. The LCP is a backup only. Not enough knock down power as a primary CCW for my liking.

Sig 226, just too big during the summer. I need a gun I can carry completely all the time no mater what. Thats why I am going to get the LCP.

What did I carry before the LCP? Let's see...

Colt Delta Elite Match 10 - Open Carry Only
S&W Model 15
S&W Model 66
S&W 642 Centennial
S&W 36
Sterling .22
Beretta Md 86

...and I still carry them after the LCP! The LCP did not replace anything, but augmented the collection.

My BUG for years was a Kel-Tec P-32.

Then I had a PF-9 for a while. I liked it, but it was a tad large to be a true pocket pistol IMO.

I never carried much before the LCP. I've tried Glocks and HPs but they seemed too bulky and heavy for normal day to day. With the LCP I can stick it in my pocket and forget it unless needed.

The elsie is also my first CCW, but before I got her I had and still have a Ruger P94DC, which has probally only had at most 1k rounds put through it.
