Gun, shooting and equipment discussions unrelated to CHL issues
My mother bought an LCP recently 378 serial number. She shot it 3 times at the range, less than 150 rounds and it stopped firing. Handed it to me and I saw a pin sticking out the frame. upon further inspection that pin was what the hammer rode on so when it popped out one side completely it let the hammer not sit straight and not fire properly. Ruger was very prompt with repair, we got it back in about a week and a half. Took it to the range and fired 50 rounds through it and about halfway through the pin started backing out again. I tapped it back in and she continued to fire it. She's had a few FTFs with it, think it may be due to limp wristing it. We had our CHL class yesterday.. While we waited for her LCP to come back I convinced her into a sig P238. She got one a few days before the CHL class. SHot it Saturday to get comfortable with it then shot for the class. She did pretty well. Did have 2 FTFs (again think it was limp wristing on those two). She wants to keep the LCP but we are worried about the pin so time will tell if we keep it or not.
