At 9.4oz, the Ruger LCP 380 is the Ultra-Light Pistol of Your Dreams, and More

Ruger LCP

Do you want a concealed carry pistol that you hardly notice you’re carrying? 

The Ruger LCP 380 is so small and light, you will forget it’s in your pocket.

In the world of concealed carry, the smallest, most discreet pistol is the weapon you’re most likely to choose. Here’s how the Ruger LCP 380 measures up as a personal defense weapon to bet your life on.

(Of course, we’d all prefer to carry a full-sized .45 ACP caliber pistol for the larger knockdown power, but, well, lightweight summer clothing and belts sagging under the weight of a loaded holstered 1911 pistol are not a good combination).

Ruger LCP

Chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge, this pistol fits right into your pocket. The Ruger LCP has a standard-capacity magazine that holds 6 rounds and fits flush with the grip. An extended grip magazine holds 7 rounds, and you can add your plus one in the chamber. Now, pair this little pistol with hard-hitting hollowpoints such as the Remington Golden Saber 102 grain self defense loads, and you have one dandy best friend.

Oh, yeah, and there’s even one with a laser sight.


When pocket carrying this little semi-automatic pistol, you should always use an inside-the-pocket holster. Uncle Mike’s size #1 Pocket Holster does an absolutely superb job ensuring secure carrying and concealment.

For those still unswayed, Ruger LCP-C is a custom version of the standard model Ruger LCP. It sports better sights, a better trigger and a steel guide rod. This custom model makes quite an improvement in shooting over the standard model. It also happens to be my personal favorite.


If you are looking for an easy-to-carry pocket pistol that certainly will get the job done, be sure to check out the Ruger LCP 380. It’s a pocket full of fury.
