Ruger LCP vs P380 P-3AT DB380 TCP P238 Bodyguard 380

If you need confirmation that the Ruger LCP is a good ccw concealed carry pistol you have come to the right spot because it is. However, claiming the LCP is a great concealed carry pocket pistol would require a bit more of a leap.

We compared the Ruger LCP against six of it's .380 ACP pocket pistol competitors. The Ruger LCP scores high in craftsmanship, concealed size, reliability, and price.

The one glaring drawback to the LCP is the trigger! First of all the trigger pull is so creepy that people roll up their windows and lock their doors when he is in the neighborhood. To make matters worse you have a heavy pull throughout the travel of the trigger and since it's close to impossible to find a consistent break point you will never be sure exactly when the trigger guard is going to kick back and hit you right on the end of your pointer/trigger finger.

Ruger LCP vs LC9 vs LCR Lightweight Compact Comparison

We received quite a few requests to size up the Ruger LCP, LC9 and LCR. We found it quite interesting putting this size comparison together. The Ruger LCP vs LC9 vs LCR size comparison images are rendered with the triggers aligned in one image and the back and bottom aligned in the other.

Personal opinion: the LCP is an amazing pocket pistol that I carry almost everyday, even though I dislike the trigger, because it can be concealed so easily. It does not require me to wear a holster or dress in a certain attire to conceal it. All I need to do is throw it in my pocket holster and tuck it away in the back pocket. The LCP in a nice pocket holster is about the size of a wallet.

The Ruger LC9 and Ruger LCR are very similar in size, but quite a bit larger than the LCP. For that reason I would choose the LCR because of the .357 option.

Ruger LC9 vs Kimber Solo 9mm Pistol Comparison

The Ruger LC9 vs Kimber Solo 9mm pistol size comparison images are rendered with the triggers aligned in one image and set against the x and y axis in the other.

If you are in the market to buy a 9mm for concealed carry purposes and looking at getting either the Ruger LC9 or Kimber Solo you have probably realized that the Kimber is quite a bit smaller in size, but also quite a bit larger in price!

Surprisingly the smaller size of the Kimber does not correlate into lighter weight as both of these pistols weigh basically the same.

One other thing that is worth paying attention to is that the Ruger has an extra round of capacity over the Kimber.
