Thoughts on Ruger LCP 2

I have looked for something small to slip in a pocket for a while, not something I would carry much but on occasion. I thought a bond arms would be the thing but after looking at one it is not really what I am looking for. My lgs suggested a Ruger, he didn't have one, I looked at one online and the weight and size is right. Just looking for thoughts on this or if there is something else.
I actually like the Bond Arms guns, but I load mine with shot shells and carry it in a shoulder rig while I am cutting the pasture. Not a fan of field mice.
Have shot them a few times; trigger is hard, grip not the best for big hands, kick a bit snappy and sights pretty much useless for anything more than point-shooting @ 7-10 yards but with some practice you can print pretty decent groups at that distance. I'd say get it.
They are definitely on the small side of the small / shootable equation. Because they are of the new recoil-operated (vs. blowback) crop, they are far more manageable than PPK's or Sig 232's. Big fan of the Glock 42's personally - a little bit bigger, but bordering on serious shooter.

I can hit a torso sized target at likely mugger distances without a problem. Perfect pocket gun for dropping in my shorts as I go about my business on a hot Texas day.
ETA....yes, I've handled and shot an LCP. No comparison with the PM9.
