Yes it is, with the following caveat. If I could convince my wife to carry, I would give her mine and buy a new one for myself. Mine has been tested a lot, both at the range and by dry firing, so I know it to be reliable.
Absolutely Dan! I would have no problem with my wife carrying it, however she has a problem with it. She says she won't carry any girlie sized caliber like a little 380.....she likes my 44 snubby ....gotta love that woman ;D_87120_ said:This is a vote. Is this gun trustworthy enough for your wife to carry?

I'm with Howard. As much as I love my LCP, some ppl have had many reliability issues with theirs. I would not carry it, let alone have my wife carry it, if it had not been put through its paces and convinced me it was ready for battle...HowardCohodas said:Yes it is, with the following caveat.

Always a good idea for any tool that might be required to save your life. My wife can have any weapon she wants (goes both ways...except she draws the line at a 50 Barrett, says I can't have anything that costs that much to shoot ) She likes the LCP but just doesn't feel comfortable with that caliber, so it's not the pistol for her. I'm not sure what is causing Dave's mags to drop, all of mine have extensions on them and I don't have a problem, I think he is doing the right thing by mentioning it when the LCP goes back..._87120_ said:But, I think we are going to put many, many rounds through it before carrying it.

have to agree, I have zero issues with carrying my lcp before this recall even. I sometimes wonder how many other guns we are carrying around that "might" have a drop safety issue,but with good common sense, the issue never rears its head. I am glad that Ruger is addressing it but had they never came forward I am sure that 99% of us would still felt the lcp was safe to carry in the pre-mod condition.RobR369 said:YOU GUYS MAKE ME SICK!!! ;D Doing all this talking about your wives carrying. I cant even get my wife to go to the range let alone carry(ok, so im just jealous). Im over it now, Yes I would definately let my wife carry the LCP(if I could get her to carry..there I go again) Sorry, I will be better after my next therapy session, I promise ;D Like I stated in another thread, since the recall notice, I have shot the living crap out of the LCP, and not any problems at all, besides a sore wrist and a deleted ammo stock. But like the sayin goes, To each is own. You have to be the judge of it.
