I put 100 rounds of Speer Lawman ammo through the new Ruger LCP & yes my hand was sore! This particular target was 15 feet away or so . The head shots were with 2 hands the chest with one . First few shots I thought it was going to pop out of my hand but quickly figured out how to keep a hold on it & do decent follow up shots . I saw some rubber grip sleeves online , maybe that would help ? I noticed I was shooting a little to the right with this gun , I don't with any others . I hadn't been shooting for awhile & this is the smallest thing I have ever shot so I was expecting to do much worse .
I did the nail polish on the front sight trick Al suggested - turns out we had glow in the dark so now it has night sights ooooh ! This thing operated just right & is as easy to carry as a wallet & keys so I am more than happy with it but I am still going for the SKS when the Zombies come .

    When you review a firearm, you may want to give a more complete report for those that may not be familiar with the firearm you are reporting on.

    So how about a review on that target? Did it actually splatter and I just can't see it?

    Mr. F:
    Seems like you like it, the initial grip issue you had kept me from buying one of those smaller
    pistols. You seem to have compensated well.

    I don't know if that was the way it was intended or if I got a defective pack of targets . Every splatter type target I have used had a bright color layer . I'm going to email the maker & see what they say . I was also kind of confused - do I aim for the head or the mask ?
    I have big hands & the small grip was what was detering me in the first place . Turns out I had not much to fear . I think I am going to order a grip sleeve anyway though .
    Sorry Doctor : The Ruger LCP it is a very small polymer framed semi auto pistol chambered in .380 & has a 6 round magazine . The trigger is very long & stiff but after a few shots got used to that too . The sights are close to non existant which makes sense for concealment & drawing . I am glad I used the nail polish !
    I have been carrying it in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster which holds it fine & does not slip out but sometimes it does not keep the pistol upright - starts to go sideways . It does not have that extra material along the side I see on others . It probably works great in jeans or back pockets .

    Great shooting. Looks like the zombie is deader. Or deaderer.

    You're right Doc. I showed a distinct zombiesque attitude in my post. Very insensitive of me. After all zombies have feelings too. Wait, let me rephrase that. Zombies have rights too. Unless the rights fell off while shambling along.

    I blame my insensitivity to lack of nourishment. I'm craving some sauteed cerveaux. Do you think a side dish of fava beans would be proper?

    I swapped off my Kahr PM-9 for that reason, and wish I hadn't. Like you, I learned how to make the adjustment, when I got the LCP. I rarely ever carry mine, any more, because I have also made the adjustment to carrying something better, IWB. But it's a fairly cool little gizmo that beats the heck out of carrying nothing, when those rare occasions pop up that you can't carry something better. I even added a CT Laser to mine, and it helps if you want to shoot a little further out.

    Don't feel bad, neither did I, in fact I do not know the difference anyway......

    I know the difference between a Spam sandwich and a bologna sandwich(or in the case of this thread a cerveaux sandwich) but I don't know how to figure out if a message is spam or not. Can someone enlighten me?

    It seems these spammers post 1 message, and it is gibberish, and in the body of the message, there is a link sausage or something equally unsavory....

    And they are from Berrundi or some such place....

    Ah, so these hot doggers from exotic mystery meating places just post a gibberish message. I've noticed that from time to time but wrote it off as some foreigner who I just didn't understand. I'm glad I've posted more than once because much of what I post can be taken as gibberish.

    Maybe the solution is to teach zombies to eat Spammers.

    Sometimes they'll have a link embedded in the text of the body. Other times it's in the signature.

    That shows up if you run the cursor over it, right? I think I remember reading that somewhere.
