I do not believe that Ruger is still shipping any LCPs to any one. A couple of dealers said that if this recall is like that of the SR9, we will not see new guns on the shelves until January.
I need a mouse gun for my wife for Christmas. I may have to go with a Kel-Tec P3AT just to have something to put under the tree. That's a real shame. Obama + Christmas season. Ruger is leaving a lot of money on the table with this recall.
Good timing, Ruger.

What a wonderful idea! I bet you and your wife get along great together!Snubbie K said:Get the wife something from the online store. Get her one of the Ruger extended magazines - you're gonna want one or two eventually anyway. Maybe get a nice box of practice ammo or maybe a few boxes of various brands of self defense ammo.
If you're flush, you could go all out and send for a laser for the LCP and even order up a nice holster that'll fit the LCP just right.
Put a few glossy pictures from the Ruger catalog in the box, wrap it all up with a bright bow - and you're good to go. She'll be eagerly watching along with you for the next guns to hit the shelves.
You'll have an extra set of eyes watching the gun stores and it'll be a wonderful time of bonding. ;D
My LCP has the slash through the 0, and has not been sent back, I think the only way to tell if the recall has been done to a 370 s/n is the diamond stamp.loliver said:I was at a gun show this weekend. A very large dealer had 5 LCP's which had the recall diamond mark. He told me these were new shippment guns.
They were also marked 370, but with a slash line through the 0. These must be existing frames or something. Anyway guns are moving again. BTW the guy had these marked $499, what a potty mouth.
That's what I heard also, Preacher. The shops I am in contact with all said probably an April gun for me. All has standing orders some more than others. All want to sell me Kel-Tecs.pistol-packin-preacher said:Just got home from the LGS, and apparently the Ruger rep had just been in. He told them that production on the new LCP's would not begin until March '09.
