Ruger LCP 3701 6+1 380ACP 2.75"
by Jeffrey C Date Added: Thursday 14 June, 2012
For concealment, these are hard to beat. Slim and small and with a tuckable holster, invisible with even a light shirt.
Performance-wise these are a disappointment. Be aware that you are getting a 5 foot range pistol and you can be relatively sure of hitting an adversary somewhere with one of these inside that range. They are basically 7 shot derringers. Many people have reported very good accuracy with these and I have no reason to doubt them. My experience though, firing one from sandbags at 10 yrds, is that the gun will group well for 2 shots for a time and then the point-of-impact will shift by several inches. Given the difficulty of shooting one of these off-hand the in-use results are going to be worse than off sandbags. I wonder if some of the people reporting trouble with their laser sites shifting are not in fact seeing the gun’s inconsistencies instead. It may be that the problem only occurs only in some guns. Inquiries to Ruger have resulted in canned-replies to send it in for a fee.
You have to practice a lot and adapt to the LCP’s size and trigger. It requires a different technique than you are probably used to with a larger pistol.
I would not re-purchase one of these after my hands on experience with the one I have.
