Looks like a great little form that addresses all the LCP's little quirks. I purchased 2 LCPs and a few extra mags a week or so ago and will be picking them up on Monday.

I basically bought them to take to the gym and when I go running. After having someone say "Yo, hey Deputy" to me when I was out w/ my girlfriend, I refuse to go ANYWHERE w/o a gun. Luckily I was packin (USPc .45) and I ignored him and left and nothing came of it, but I'd rather not be caught off guard while jogging.

Couple Qs to get me started. I see a lot of talk about the Bersa, P3AT, and NAA380 pinky extensions for the mags. Do the P3AT "+1 extensions" work on the LCP? Are there any +1 extensions that have the pinky flare like the other ones mentioned?

Also, I see that "Ooben" has the Kel-Tec clip on his LCP. Where any modifications (bending/cutting/etc) req'd to make it work?

Thanks fellas, and I hope to learn alot here about my newest gun. This concludes my "official elsiepea intro"!! ;D

96 Welcome!

You've got some good questions there and I don't want them to get lost. We are going to move to the accessories room. Stand-by. Readers please wait until this gets moved to the appropriate room before responding.

It's now in the appropriate room, members chime away! :)

Ok Rich, did I wait long enough :D GTS, I did bend the pocket clip a little to get it to fit tighter around the back curve, but I'm the type of guy who can't leave anything alone. The clip works well when I'm running wearing sweat pants, that's about the only time I use it. Oh yeah, welcome to the forum, it's a nice place to shoot the breeze with good people.

And jogging/biking/gym is my main reason for buying this gun. Do you have close up pics of what part you bent? Or is it pretty obvious when you mock it up on the pistol? I'll be ordering the clip tomorrow or sunday. What are the good online vendors for these pocket pistols?

I considered that one, but with the CT laser, I think the grip might be too "busy", ya know...? Plus, I'd rather reach down and grasp the grip from the get go.

96, when you put the clip up to the frame you'll notice the corners of the clip don't set flush with the frame.I thought that could possibly snag on my pocket when drawing, a little judicous hammer work (with a 3 pound ball peen of course ;D) on the clip massaged it enough to fit fine. Oh yeah, I might add, I did not have the clip on my LCP when "massaging" the clip..... :)

One of my weekend projects is to see how they work together now that I have the LG-431 installed.

I also have a ClipDraw from http://www.clipdraw.com/store/index.php?rn=395&action=show_detail. I have one on my M&P 45fs and find it works well. If I have the time, I will try that as well.
