Well I just got back from a week of bowhunting, camping, and shooting up north. The weather was great, I managed to get some fine venison, and had a ball with the new pistol.

I had no problems of any kind with "Maggie". I ran a big box (100) of Winchester fmj through it and a small box of Remington Golden Sabres to test for a carry load.

The trigger is very long but easy to predict when it is about to let off. It took a little getting used to but could be pretty darn accurate once I figured it out.

The little grip was not a problem at all. I had my doubts about how well I could shoot with my little finger hanging in the breeze, I quickly got used to the two finger grip. Recoil was not as harsh as I expected after reading some other reports. I would call it minimal.

I was very impressed with the accuracy. I was expecting a 5 to 15 yard group that would stay in a 10 inch cluster and got much better. I was shooting small pebbles in a dirt pile from from 15 yards and routinely hitting them. The sights are tiny but enough. I also had good luck point shooting with one hand or two.

I think I made a great purchase. I wanted something tiny that could always be on hand, but got a little pistol that is accurate and a hoot to shoot. :)

Sorry picketeer! Maggie is staying with me. 8)

The dangling pinky has had me concerned about my choice to order LCP. Your post makes me feel a little better. I guess the mag extension solves this problem.

My two cents worth, I find it a lot easier to get a follow up shot off with the extension, in my hands the LCP just moves around more than I'm comfortable with. I'm use to shooting a hand filling handgun like my 1911 or my Charter Arms Bulldog, I'm not knocking my LCP, I agree that it is a hoot to shoot ;D
