Greetings, all-

New guy here from Jefferson Co, WV. Have a deposit down on an LCP. Price was $295 plus tax, title, DNA Test, etc. Thought that was a good deal so I jumped on it (they told me that Ruger was raising the price 5% on 2009 production). Anyway, mine will be the next one in the door at the shop. I'll be curious to see if it's a 370 or 371, diamond or not, hard case or not, yada yada.

Was Army Infantry in another life years ago and have been CC in VA and now WV for about 8 years. Traded in a first generation Taurus PT111 that I never liked for a PT1911SS that I love, but but have found that more often than not, it stays in the lockbox in my dresser instead of coming out with me. Part of the reason lately is that I was away on TDY for a month followed by the holidays and suddenly I'm 20# more than I was and there just ain't room inside my waistband. It hides very well in my The Answer from Tucker Gunleather, but still it doesn't come out with me as often as it should. The LCP, I suspect, will be a constant companion, once we get to know and trust each other.

The LCP, when it arrives, will be joining a Berretta 92F (9mm), H&R 949 (.22), Glenfield model 60 (.22), an old Sears .22 rifle (Winchester made), the 1911, a Mossberg 500 (.12ga) and a Marlin 336 (30/30). The last 3 all were acquired in the past 6 months and my wife (aka She Who Must be Obeyed - SWMBO for short) thinks I'm done buying firearms. Good thing I had an enormous bottle of loose change to cash in. ;)

Looking forward to discussing Elsie with you all when she arrives.

good to see another WV boy in the club. I was raised in Morgantown and graduated from WVU in 1972 I know live outside of Houston Tx I to have a Taurus 1911 and boy is that a sweet gun to shoot. I do about 150 to 200 rounds a week through it but I agree it is not what I carry day to day. I have had my lcp for a month and I find it my constant companion. Not as enjoyable to shoot as the the T 1911 but not as hard to carry.

Yeah... little one in the hand is better than big one in the drawer. Once I make some room in the waistband again, I'll still bring the 1911 out, it's only fair. The poor 92F I've had for 22 years and I bet don't have 500 rounds through it. College graduation present from the folks. Like it, and carried one just like it (except beat up and ugly) in the Army. But for some reason, when I go shooting, more often than not, it gets left behind.
