Finally made it to the range today with my LCP. I had only one complaint..............I didn't bring enough ammo :D.

I fired 107 rounds total, which was all that I had in my range bag. I walked out of the house and forgot a whole 100 round brick of WWB FMJ. Didn't realize until I got to the range that I'd left it behind. So I made do with what I had.

Breakdown of ammo fired:
70 rnds WWB
18 rnds Fiochhi JHP
6 rounds Speer GDHP
6 rounds Fed. Hydrashock
7 rounds PMC Eldorado Starfire

total failures...........0

Testing protocol:

Used 8" paper plates with shoot n c dots as aiming points. All shots fired two hand standing except where noted.

First test 5 yds. 19 rounds fired WWB. Firing as fast as sights resettled on target. 19 rounds accounted for on target:



2nd test 7 yds, 24 rounds fired WWB. 23 rounds accounted for. Again firing as fast as sights could resettle on target.



3rd test 10 yds. SLOW FIRE. 12 rounds fired WWB, 12 rounds accounted for, called flier low left, slapped the trigger on that shot.



4th test 15 yds. (Yes I know we're getting into the realm of the ridiculous with a pocket pistol, but hey I wanna know what it'll do out here) 6 rounds fired WWB, 6 rounds accounted for on target.



5th test 25yds. (really into the realm of ridiculousness now, but still I wanna know). At this range I leaned against the vertical post holding up the shelter. 6 rounds fired, 4 accounted for on target. other two rounds found in wood to left of target 1.5 in and 2 in away from target edge respectively.



6th test 7 yds, JHP function test. I really tried my best here to get the LCP to fail. I staggered JHP and FMJ. I staggered different types of JHP's. I fired it sideways gangsta style. I fired it using only my trigger finger and thumb (in other words using no grip at all!). I turned it upside down and fired it. I could not get it to jam. 38 rounds of mixed ammo fired, 34 accounted for on target.



Overall, I have to say I am pleased. I did my best to get this gun to fail, it did not. It was very easy to shoot, recoil was brisk but manageable. After 107 rounds I was ready for 107 more, but was out of ammo :cry:.

It disappears in my pocket in a cheap double triple pocket holster (gonna look for a desantis superfly soon.)

You'll like the DeSantis Superfly. I have one that I use with the Kel Tec P3AT. First time I come across an LCP, I'm gonna' have to have one of them too.

It's obvious whenever a round is not accounted for,
that it went through another hole. :p Nice shooting. Can't complain
about that.

Thanks for a fine report! Love to be able to get my hands on a LCP. But I don't believe it will ever become Mass Compliant. The price you pay for living in a politically liberal state.

Bummer. Beginning to think I ought to take a look at one next gun show.
