Ugh, I went by the gun shop today to see where I stood on the wait list. I am number 2 now. Started at number 10 on Sep 4th. I would be excited but the guy told me they have not gotten any LCP's in in a "while" meaning that I COULD have already had it and also I have no idea when I will finally get it! :mad: Please guys help me pass the time.

time is like a tea kettle,
the more you watch the longer it takes to boil!

just be stock piling ammo, and really break it in when it comes in.
shoot it till your finger falls off or it explodes like a .40S&W Glock.
pick up the pieces,put a lot of duct tape on your fingers, and shoot it
some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

happy shooting , just don't forget to fully reset the trigger,very inportant.

yes i would say spend some time buying different types of ammo, holsters, and other small accessories. that way when your pistol arrives, you're all set.

I have the same feeling as you-- Every day I come home from work and walk over to the phone to see if there is a message for me from the gun shop and ---- aahhhh crap !!! nothing
But it shouldn't be very much longer--- I hope.
Borrowed a KT Sat and took it out to shoot -- nice little gun
Ruger should be speeding things up before I go for a KT. Got to have a mouse killer... got to have a mouse killer, just got to ......

Slappy,

It is no better in Florida. I purchased mine the exact same date as you (Sept 4th). The store I purchased from informs me today that they have not received a single LCP from that date. I hope I get mine before the year is out, but it is not looking good.

Seems like all gun shops are like that. "Don't have any and don't know when we'll be getting them in either" It's worth the wait.

I have no doubt it is worth the wait, but I wish there was more fairness in the distribution process.

Disregard what I said after the comma. Fairness - that sounds to much like Obama ;D.

haha, you guys are great. To rub salt in the wound even more, listen to this! I work for a large sporting good retailer. Last night I got 4 phone calls from work and I knew it was this slacker at work wanting to switch his next shift with me so I didnt answer. He is a clown, 19 years old and he gets wasted and hates working nights because when he gets back home all his friends are already drunk. Anyways, I listen to my voicemail this morning and it goes something like this, Hey John, this is Randy (not the guy I had originally though) I wanted to let you know we got one LCP in and I am holding it for your until close tonight, otherwise it is good as gone! Give me a call quick if you want it! $289!" DANGIT!

I've been waiting since June, and a friend has been waiting since April!

Given how many shops and distributors are receiving guns, and how many LCPs Ruger is producing daily, there's no legitimate reason anyone should have been waiting since April or June (or probably even August). My advice is to find a couple of other gun shops and try ordering through them. Whoever comes up with the gun first wins your business.

+1 on that! I haven't checked w/ a fellow I'm going to get one off of, but he did have some awhile back. My wife will be getting her CC permit soon and so will I. I think she would like the ruger if I could just get her to try shooting a small .380. She's afraid of the recoil.

JUST HAVE YOUR FFL DEALER GET YOU ONE FROM GUNSAMERICA.COM OR AUCTIONARMS.COM IT IS NOT THAT HARD. LCP'S ARE EASY TO FIND IF YOU WANT TO PAY $319.00 SOUNDS LIKE SOME OF YOU WOULD PAY THE EXTRA $40 OVER MSRP

Easy on the ALL CAPS! It shows that you are screaming.

Yes you can get rugers off of Gun Broker, but for me I am not going to pay $320 for a gun and then have to pay an extra $50 for them to do the transfer. I think I will just wait.

My local discount gun dealer told me when I ordered my LCP that they were coming in at the rate of 1 a week. I became number 4 on his list. My wait lasted exactly 4 weeks to the day. At his price of $269, I think the wait was worth it. I have no regrets....... The LCP is fantastic.

I got the call today from the waiting list at a local dealer that he had a LCP for me after 6 weeks. I purchased one used a couple weeks ago but when my neighbor saw it he had to have one so he will be picking up "my gun" tomorrow.
