Literally fell in my lap last week. It is very nice. I've worn it around the house in a pocket holster (Blackhawk #2, it's a little big, need something better) and I don't even know it's there... love it! It even came w/ 200 rnds of FMJ...
Yup,just like Jbard said you are good to go with the right holster.These guns are made to be carried with one in the pipe,the covered and long trigger pull being your safety. I get your concern because it took me a long time as well to accept the no safety thing,but you will get over it. Take that thing apart,carry it around the house,dry fire with dummy loads till your wife screams at ya! Get to know it inside and out and it will put your mind at ease.
RandyEA - I carry mine hot - wouldn't carry any other way - and when it's not at my waist, it's in my FlashBang - wouldn't carry hot if I was worried about it at all! Plus I've modified with adjustable trigger and reduced power hammer springs, and this baby is still not going to get fired without sincere intent! Good purchase - great little ccw!
A great little pistol, safe, reliable and accurate. I have over 700 rounds threw my LCP without any kind of problem whatsoever. The new extended 7 round magazine from the Ruger store is a really nice addition for anyone who carries the LCP, it is long enough for a better hold on pistol, but not enough to bother while carrying it.
