I Purchased a new LCP on 9/24. I was offered a chance to shoot it at the time and because of the need to go to work, I passed. When I next had the chance to fondle my newly aquired P shooter I was saddened to discover that the trigger did not appear to be connected to the firing mechanism. No matter how many times I cycled the slide, it would just not set up a firing sequence. Sent it back the next day. Still waiting to shoot for the first time...

Saddened but not discouraged !!!!

Thanks for the welcome ! Any idea of the turnaround from Ruger ? I am giving them a week and then I will do an Email to AZ and see if there is any feedback. It is kind of like something is missing. After the feeling of ( I finally have it in my hand ) to (not) is a let down. Like a Kid loosing his brand new favorite toy.

Oh yeah, understand the kid and new toy syndrome! Anytime I've had to deal with Ruger they were amazingly quick, I guess it depends on backlog and what needs to be done. They are always very friendly and professional and no I do not work for Ruger ;D

Well it has been somewhat of an ordeal but I finally have a working LCP in my possession. I had to return my original unit because there was no trigger reaction. no nothing. After a week, I EmaileRuger to inquire on the status and they said they had not received this unit. Called Ohio Valley Outdoors and they had just received ( 10 ) LCP,s and they would just trade me for a working unit. Had to redo the paper work and the phone call but at last it is in my pocket. Shot 50 rounds Speer Gold Dot 90gr. I like it ;D Will make a great pardnership with my XD-40.

So David, just where in the heck did your LCP go to? I guess it doesn't matter, what matters is you have your pistol and you like it. How do you like the Gold Dots? I hand load the Gold Dots and I'm impressed with the accuracy of the bullet....

Well Mike for all I know Ohio Valley still has it. The S/N was 370-34505 so if any one should end up with it consider it a repaired unit. The Gold Dots are great. I read an article somewhere that the Gold dots retain their total weight better than several other brands. ie they don't come apart during penetration. Their all around perfomence was rated best overall. I think it was a past issue of Handgunner Magazine. I have not ventured into reloading. I can hear my Wife now. All of my hobbies seem to cost more money than I can explain away ;D That will be one of my retirement projects. Proably blow myself up :eek:

That's the beauty of handloading, you can explain to the wifey about how much money you will save by reloading (which is true if you matain the same level of shooting, of course, I could not :D ) As far as blowing yourself up, that's not likely to happen. You do have to pay attention to what you are doing when reloading, similar to shaving in my opinion......
