Hey Papajoe, congrats on scoring the LCP and welcome to the forum. I got lucky at a sporting goods store in Alexandria (LA) and found mine in the case. I've got a Crimson Trace on the way and :-\ just got in the queue for the recall.
Mine is a real decent shooter and as a newbie CCW permitee, it is easy to carry and for me to get some experience with carrying.
Welcome Papajoe another Louisianan here from Opelousas. You will find this forum very informative. My LCP is at Ruger for repair and recall but will be getting it back within 10 days. Your Lucky, I had to wait 3 months for my LCP to come in after being 1st on a waiting list at Barneys Firearms in Carencro, LA. Good shooting!
