Although I do shoot alot, I know alot of people(including LEO's) that dont shoot very often.Does that mean that they(LEO's) shouldnt carry a weapon for self defense..NO! Sure like the saying goes, practice makes perfect, But I have never seen a certain number of rounds one has to shoot before he/she can carry. So LSU, if you feel comfortable only shooting the LCP a few times and wanting to carry it, then go for it.
Uh oh... different thread, same subject with a poll!!!.
My opinion for whatever it's worth, is a person should shoot a gun enough to feel comfortable with it and skilled in it's use. Not asking an internet forum how reliable it is after they already own it and have shot it very little. Shoot your own gun and see if it is reliable. Your gun could be a lemon while 100 others have never had a malfunction.
The truth is that my carry choice is the Taurus Millennium PT 745 because of it's relatively small size and weight and .45 cal stopping power, and, so far, its total reliably with everything I've put through it.
But, the fact is that at times it's still a hassle to carry under some circumstances here in south Florida. Whereas the LCP is an all the time, any time, anywhere, kind of carry gun. And of course you know the cliche .........
We already have a sticky on this subject but if its graphs you want, it's ok with me. Personally, I have approx. 800 rounds through my LCP and would trust my life with the little spitfire without reservation. The gun is far more proficient than I am that's why I practice and the gun just goes along for the ride.
And the best news of all is, it came back from the recall today! Total time away from home: exactly one week to the day.
No, I don't want graphs. I just wanted to know if I was the only one on this forum who hadn't shot their LCP all that much. After getting slammed about it the other night. If I could vote again, I'd be in a different category. I put a hundred rounds through it today. No problems.
