Anybody carry a Ruger LCP

I'm looking into getting something that's a little easier to carry than my Glock 30. I have been looking into a .380 by Bersa or the Ruger LCP. I want a small gun, that I don't have to worry about it printing on my shirt, an the 380 is pretty inexpensive to buy and shoot. Suggestions?

Personally I think the Ruger P series is a little big for Concealed carry. I do have a P95
.40 s&w. I can conceal carry it. But it is kinda big to do so.

I myself am looking for a Kimber 1911 .45acp. This will be my new concealed carry weapon.

when I was looking i looked at Ruger Beretta and Kel-tec compacts but they all seemed to small to be comfortable to shoot. I ended up with a Kahr PM40 and I love it. Its quite a bit smaller then my xd.

I wouldn't mind a 40cal, if I could find it in a small enough package. My price range is not very large. I need to buy ammo too, so I'm not going to want to spend $500 on a new carry gun. I have a friend that carries a Ruger LCP in the front pocket of his jeans. That's closer to the size I'm looking for.

I thought the Glock would be a good size carry gun; considerable knock down power, and the size seemed doable

By the way there is a recall on the LCP and SR9. You all should check Rugers Website.

We have two bersa 380's. They aren't as high quality as a ruger, but they do shoot well and they were a good price. The best part is if i scratch one or drop one i don't really care. I carry mine with me every day to work.

I just looked at it. Apparently it can fire a round if you have one in the pipe and drop it, or hit it on a hard surface. They have an upgraded hammer mech for the older ones.
