Nobody want's to have a broken anything, be it a gun, refrig, car, tv, but it happens. If you think Ruger rushed the lcp out, that is Ok to, its your opinion. there is over 60,000 of those rushed guns out there and 95% are more than likely completely satisfied. You ain't the first to have an issue with the lcp and certainly you won't be the last, they are guns made out of parts and parts break. Now that being said if you don't trust the lcp, then please just peddle it and get a gun that you are totally comfortable with. No one on this forum can make the "pain" go away.
There is no sin in selling your lcp, some don't like the trigger system--answer then peddle it, some don't like the recoil--answer peddle it. It is not the gun for all as many have come on here and so expressed. I love my Kahr PM9, many called the PM9 a POS gun right out of the box. If one gun was simply the best and filled all needs it would be so much easier for everyone but it isn't.
I owned a $900 opara carry 9 that I loved to shoot. The most accurate 1911 style lda I ever owned. It just didn't perform as I thought it should I gave it 3 trips back then peddled it. It takes me awhile to learn I guess but I won't go through that stuff anymore. I will give any gun I own and like a one time trip back to the facotry for an issue, after taht if it doesn't live up to what I think it should I will peddle it and move on. I still brag to those on the 1911 Para forum that I loved my carry 9 but it just didn't work right after 3 times back. I canonly expressmy Para experience as I read many many who own the carry 9 ahnd just love it to death.
I feel the same way about my lcp, it has worked out of the box for 1350 flawelss rounds, I in my opinion think it is miles ahead of the kt 380. I think Ruger has and is listening and also learning from the lcp owners to. They immediately milled the frame out when they found out they had a banging/peening frame issue, They have now addressed the throating of the barrel and have done some type of extractor modifications to accomadate different ammo sensitivitys. they upgraded the slidle lock lever from something that was a bitch to work correctly to something that is just now half a bitch to work correctly. The trigger pivot breakage that seems to be most of the talking subject anymore, I cannot say what they have done there, as more than likely any upgrade part there will look exactly the same but probably be of better material.
I feel your pain to hear your ruger is going to take 30 plus days to get back. Wish everyone could push a button and you have it tomorrow--ain't gonna happen. I once owned 3 kt's hate to say it but sent them all back a total of 17 times and I can't remember getting anyone of them back faster than 4 weeks and a few took 8 weeks. Was I happy,,, no!
I trust my lcp, if I didn't I would not own it-period..
