    I have yet to actually try one . If it is similar to my LC9s pro , I hesitate to carry with one in the chamber except in specific situations.

    Thanks for your comment, pennsy. If I read it properly, your vote that although the LCP's action cannot be locked by choice, it's still safe to carry provided it's carried without a round in the chamber. That's a BIG contingency for sure . . . one alluded to by Ed's comment . . . and not one that I thought about when I constructed the poll. Fortunately it got caught properly in the universe of choices I presented, but that was sheer luck on my part. Well done for catching that, sir!

    Now you see why I encourage comments and why all my pencils have erasers on them. :-)

    Like when my burglar alarm goes off and I have to drive over to shut it off. Maybe sketchy parts of town. I would rather leave it loaded 100% of the time but it is too light for me.

    Hmmm. That's pretty gutsy as far as I'm concerned, pennsy. No way would I drive into "sketchy" parts of town at night without one in the tube . . . particularly if I thought I might be heading into harm's way. You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!

    With all due respect, I could care less what the community thinks. When it comes to my life, my femoral artery, the life of a innocent victim Will I carry a Glock or a Rugaglock? (LCP ll) Not NO, but HELL NO!

    Or is it Glockaru? That said, better your leg than mine,

    Dave, we just HAVE to get you out of your shell. When are you going to learn that it's OK to express yourself here? ;-)

    PS: I like Rugaglock better, but Glockaru sure has a nice ring to it. :-)

    High time someone did not sugar coat it. And I think you are right Bruce, Glockaru sounds better, and Actually the Glock came first. I was at a gun show yesterday and I have never in my life seen so many people, huge parking lot filled to capacity. And Glocks just dominated the show. Table after table filled with these Black Blocks. I saw less of other manufacturers than I ever had. What I don't get is why fill the tables with so many Glocks when every single one of them looks the same?
    And guess what was in my opinion the second most popular weapon. Yep, you got it Glockaru's, They had tons of them for sale. I did not see any Gen 2's and one custom for $369.00.
