The Taurus you speak of is quite a bit bigger than an LCP, more like the size of a Kahr.I have an LCP and love it. It goes with me everywhere and drops right into my front pocket. I shot both the LCP ana the Kel Tec when I was choosing and the LCP seemed better overall...even though some will say they're the same gun. It's pretty accurate out to 10 yards, the only problem I have withit is the sights are really small and hard to see in bad light. I'm probably going to colot them so they're easier. I haven't had any loading issues or FTF issues with it. I strongly recommend it as a CC gun, especially if you live in a warmer climeat where it's difficult to carry anything realy big. My wife also love it and will most likely be addopting it soon so I may be picking up another. Another pocket pistol that I'm waiting to see is the Taurus pt709 which is supposedly not much larger that the LCP but shoots 9mm. Hope this helps.
I dont have one, and actually havent even seen one in a store yet. I asked the owner of one of my local shops once if he had heard anything about them, he told me that he had over 20 on back order! He was selling them before he even got them.
I guess that means they must be pretty decent
Glad to see your endorsement along with some of the others. You mind posting some photos of your LCP with the mods you mentioned? I was just at my LGS today looking around. Of course, they didn't have one, but they did have Ruger's 2008 Sales Catalog, which includes thee LCP.I love my LCP. When I first got it I didn't like it because it was so small it didn't fit in my hand, I could only get two fingers on it. I went to e-bay and got some finger extensions for the magazines and that helped like you would not believe. I now can get 3 fingers on it and it makes it a lot more comfortable. Then I put some dots on the sights to make it easier to see. I now have a laser on it and let me tell you, it is my most fun gun to shoot right now. I cant even take it out at the gun range because everyone in the world wants to see it and shoot it. I have talked many people into getting it. I do recomend this gun to anyone.
