This is a discussion on What is the MTBF for the LCP with standard factory ammo? within the General LCP Discussion forums, part of the LCP Pocket category; Originally Posted by boo A take down pin backing out is a failure, if it was installed correctly to begin with. I agree. A takedown ...
So only a few votes were cast in this poll, but the results seem to be following the classic bell-shaped curve with most of the responses falling between a MTBF rating of 500-1000 rounds and 1000-2000 rounds. I'm in the 500-1000 rounds camp myself. In fact, I'm looking around right now for a BB gun I can use for point-and-shoot training instead of burning up my LCP (and my wallet) for that purpose.
Yep. But I'm persuaded by Dave's argument that the only way to stay sharp with a handgun . . . any handgun . . . is practice, practice, practice. It doesn't necessarily have to be handgun that shoots bullets all the time, however . . . or at least that's my hope. A BB gun might just do the trick for point-and-shoot training, for example. And a BB gun costs a whole lot less to purchase and shoot than another LCP. That's why I'm leaning in the direction of a BB gun right now. I'm just waiting for some feedback as to which one I should buy from folks who are far more familiar with them than I am before I make the leap.
Yep. I'm inside city limits. Shooting a rimfire for practice is a no-no here unless I'm at a range. Otherwise the rimfire would be my first choice. I've got a Beretta Bobcat that would be perfect for the task. I can and WILL shoot my Beretta when I go to the range, though. It's too much fun NOT to shoot! :-)
It took awhile to break in. I think mini rimfire pistols are just like that. But it's pretty darn reliable now. And the flip-up barrel is the bee's knees. Gotta love it! :-)
I always have my eyes open for a Bobcat! Those little weapons are great! Den
I'm pretty sure pennsy wasn't referring to you as a bad guy, boo. Correct me if I'm wrong about that, pennsy.
There's a wonderful book out there by a guy named don Miguel Ruiz called The Four Agreements. It's a little book that can easily be read cover to cover in an afternoon and it changed my life. It's been on the New York Times bestseller list for decades. The second agreement may apply here . . . "don't take anything personally". Try it. You may like it.
