I picked up an LCP at the Bigtown Gun Show Saturday from SAW's Guns for $275. I also bought an extra magazine and 50 rounds of ammo. I'm pumped.

I picked this PMI 15 round mag up at the Pasadena Fun Show last weekend, it's just for practice, I had little hope of it working as no PMI mag I've ever bought worked, but it flowed 50 rounds without a hiccup and I didn't have to reload as often.

I had the same thought, why would PMI put a pinky extension on that? Anyone with a hand that big I won't mess with.

I have a stick mag similar to that for my commander. Muzzle rise is more of a swing at each shot. As the mag empties the bucking gets tighter. Probably not as severe in 380 as 45 due to weight and recoil. Still fun in an out-of-control way.

Based on my experiences yesterday, I'd have 10 FTFs before getting to the bottom of the magazine.

My wife's LCP has yet to experience a FTFs...I admit she has only fed 150 or so rounds through it but it has been flawless so far.

It is a bit of a pain to field strip, but as far as being reliable and concealable go I give it top marks.

how so? the only thing i can think of that would be a pain is the slide stop pin. if so, take the rim of the 380 case, hook it under that pin, and tilt the case to the right.... it pops right out. once I figured that trick out my life became much easier! plus you don't have to worry about marring the finish with a screwdriver. hope my description on how to do the trick isnt too terrible lol

Excellent Tip !! ..Thanks !! :thumbs2:
I always use a small screwdriver with a rag to protect the finish but I like your idea better. ;-)

:iagree: Thanks for the tip. I am always afraid of damaging the finish (and therefore ending up on my wife's naughty list) too so I will try this tip and that may make things less stressful around here come gun cleaning time!

Nice tip, I always hated popping the pin with a screwdriver!

I'd have to agree... we have two of them, with probably close to 1000 rounds through them together, including, now, over hundred rounds of Corbon .380... I've absolutely never had a singl FTF from either one of them...
