Since the Recall - How many still carry the LCP with one in the chamber? I for one do, I've carried a Glock for years and do not have a problem keep my finger off the trigger.
I hear what your saying, but a gun is a gun. Don't think your "differnent handling and assumed' theory will hold up. Any gun can be dropped... no matter what it's intended use is or how often it's used.Match10 said:The LCP and SR9 are a bit different in purpose and intent as well. I'd wager that the LCP is carried often, and the MKII or MKIII are more used in shooting and plinking... and not carried. Different "handling" is required and assumed.
Not very many LCP's are dropped. Not many of those dropped were dropped on a hard surface. Not many of those dropped on a hard surface discharged. Ruger has had "a few" reports of an accidental discharge from dropping it on a hard surface. But, how does one confirm those reports? How does one differentiate a trigger induced accidental discharge from a drop accidental discharge?HB Phil said:BTW, I believe that 99.9% of folks don't intentionally drop their weapons, and that it may seldom happen. But car accidents and body slams and fights, simple falls and other "bone jarring" occurances can and do happen.
