    I carry my original Gen. 2 LCP everywhere. This new model fills a lot of need for many. I will buy one eventually. Wish it was even smaller.

    Blows the new Glock 44 out of the water. No excuses now for not carrying. I really like how they did the safety on it because on my EC9s I carry it weak side but it's awkward to disengage when I go in to draw.

    The LCP 2 .22 LR has it side to side so that as you go in you can just press it forward and draw. I pocket carry without a holster so I do like having an external safety. A holster is to bulky and prints. I'm gonna buy a 'Clipdraw' and get that safety outside the pocket.

    I walk with a cane on my strong side so I have trained myself to shoot from the weak side as well. If the safety was ambidextrous it would work good.

    I'll definitely be sniffing around for one at the next gun show.

    I got one....nice little gun. If you are used to flicking off a safety on a 1911 or a Shield this is as easy.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I have a Phoenix Arms .22 and shoots well. I am please to say I paid $139.00 and shot 2,000 rnds without any issues. I thought, for 140 bucks why not and it turned out to be a great little gun. Worth every little penny. Its negatives are the safeties and the magazine release has to be depressed while removing the magazine. If you release the mag rel. it locks the magazine from being removed even half way out it locks. Once you get passed all of that and are shooting, it's lots of fun. My children love it.
    Now for Ruger LCP II .22, I am sure it is a very good buy and very well worth every little penny. For self defense against a two legged rat, why not. I pushes a .40 gr. projectile to roughly 1,100 fps. give or take 50 and up close during an altercation it may save your life and get you out of a situation.

    JUst got the lcp2 22lr--have you noticed how "light" the lands and grooves are in the barrel--I can just barely barely see a line or two!!! How is your barrel??? Pistol shoots great and fairly accurate even to 25 yards....

    What do you think goes in that circled area on well over half the bodyguards sold? Just like the entire m&p line. I have the manual safety on my Shield 9mm.[​IMG]

    I bought the safety delete model because it is not necessary on a a gun with a 9-10 lb double action only trigger . If you keep your gun secured in a holster and only pull it out to confront a threat, then you dont need it. I was trained to shoot on revolvers (no safety)30 years ago, trained as a law enforcement officer with DAO pistols, & I've never owned a pistol with a safety ..........and I never will.

    Yes, the lands are light, but it still shoots accurate enough and practically NO recoil.

    That has to be light enough to carry around for long oeriods of time. Thought about the SR22 for awhile, but it really isn't that small compared to my LC9s or Shield. Not for serious carry, but for around the old rancho. It's much lighter than my target model Ruger Mk IIs.

    Not much into the pocket .380s with all the 9s available. I do have a reliable, durable and accurate Beretta ''Bobcat'' .22 for around here, but it is all metal and heavy. The ittle Ruger .22 might be worth looking into.

    A pic of the Bobcat and poceket holster.

    Hey Pancho, you old warhorse.
    You still going to shows and stealing guns from people.
    Hope your well my friend.

    I love my Bobcat too.

    In the Study of 154 people shot with a .22 LR Handgun 52.36 were fatalities, 92.4 were incapacitated by a one-shot stop, it's no joke 92.4 of 154 were Totaly Incapacitated with just one shot and 52.36 were killed out of the 154 shot with one .22 LR Handgun shot in head or torso. The Average engagement is 7 yards distance 21 feet to hit the head or torso with the .22LR is even easy for the beginner to shoot with its lower recoil and accuracy not to mention in the hands of a serious skilled shooter. Like Greg points out in his study in his Conclusion! "This study took me a long time and a lot of effort to complete. Despite the work it took, I’m glad I did it. The results I got from the study lead me to believe that there really isn’t that much difference between most defensive handgun rounds and calibers. None is a death ray, but most work adequately…even the lowly .22s. I’ve stopped worrying about trying to find the “ultimate” bullet. There isn’t one. And I’ve stopped feeling the need to strap on my .45 every time I leave the house out of fear that my 9mm doesn’t have enough “stopping power.” Folks, carry what you want. Caliber really isn’t all that important."

    "Take a look at the data. I hope it helps you decide what weapon to carry. No matter which gun you choose, pick one that is reliable and train with it until you can get fast accurate hits. Nothing beyond that really matters!" What you should take away from this study is Caliber really isn’t all that important, but Speed, Accuracy, & Proficiency are. In other words, practice practice practice until you are fast accurate, and proficient with your firearm nothing beyond that matters. I agree with him 100 %.

    my 1st pocket pistol was the l'il Beretta. bought one in 1994 for $150. I carried it until 2008, when I traded it in and got what I paid for it. So in a sense I carried it for 14 years for FREE. Great little guns, rugged, small, tip up barrell was neat, I miss it sometimes.

    I had one of these little backup .22LR pockets pistols I kept it loaded with the CCI 40 grain VELOCITOR copper-plated hollow points. I swapped it off in a trade I wish I kept it. Now my Backup is A Ruger LCP II.22 LR loaded with the same ammo. In a Police Forensic Study of 154 attackers shot with a .22 LR Handgun 52.36 were fatalities, 92.4 were incapacitated by a one-shot stop, it's no joke 92.4 of 154 were Totaly Incapacitated with just one shot, and 52.36 were killed out of the 154 shot with one .22 LR Handgun shot in head or torso.
