    Training and due diligence can narrow your chances of a ND . But... accidents do happen . I dropped my pistol once and then instinctively tried to catch it . Nothing bad happened but it sure was a attention getter .

    No way of knowing . No reporting agency . Also no wide spread usage by police department like the Glock . I owned a Remington Model 700 for decades and never knew about the trigger issue .

    As did I, pennsy. All folks can do is look at the design of LCP II's trigger, research the available facts and opinions about it, ask themselves whether a greater possibility of an accidental discharge exists based on those facts and opinions, and make their carry decisions accordingly.

    Good advice for all carriers of all guns.

    Agreed. The issue is whether some trigger designs carry a greater risk of accidental discharge than others. That is, in fact, what each person needs to decide for themselves. And where firearms are concerned, I'd say that's a decision no one should arrive at lightly.

    Do to finding the recommendation of Ruger to carry all LCP's with a empty chamber I have gone from carrying un-chambered part time to doing it full time.
    What I am doing is cocking my LCP II then put the loaded magazine in, I am doing this as my own test to see how long I go before I see that the hammer has fallen.
    Over three weeks now & so far the pistol has been still cocked every time I take it out of the holster.
    One more thing I discovered is that the LCP II is even easer to rack if it is already cocked.

    I'm not trying to change anybody's mind or defend my own personal position with respect to the LCP II's trigger or the desirability of carrying a pistol with or without a round in the chamber, mr.mike. I'm only suggesting that people take their time, research all the facts, and read all the opinions before they decide whether or not they want to carry an LCP II. I assume you wouldn't have a problem with folks doing that, right?

    When I was a teen I was hunting rabbits with my Uncle Bill, we were crossing a little creek I saw a rabbit stopped clicked off the safety on my shotgun & raised it but the rabbit was gone. I climbed out of the creek & Uncle Bill saw the safety off on my shotgun. He took all my shells & sent me to wait in the truck.
    The problem with accidental discharges has more to do with the design of the person than the design of the trigger.

    The people that do not research the weapon they plan to use in any way are the people prone the having accidents
