I have the first generation LCP and the recoil is snappy but less than .38 Special in a S&W Model 40. It is not a gun I would like to run 10 mags through in a row but it is very manageable for a couple of mags at a time and even 50-100 rounds spread out over a range day. My brother has the Hogue grip sleeve on his and it helps with the recoil but I prefer the grip feel without the sleeve. The thin slide and frame, with a pocket holster to break up the outline, make the LCP great for pocket carry.

I have a keltec .380 which is similar and it definitely isn't something you would want to shoot a lot in one day. I put 50 rounds through it in 30 minutes, and I was toughing it out just to get practice time in. It's not bad but after a few mags it stings.

Is that the P3AT?

Very happy LCP-2 owner, here. Have put almost 400 rounds through it so far, no troubles regardless of what I feed it. While it is, as it must be in such a lightweight little piece, a short and sharp recoil, it's very manageable. Hasn't bothered me a bit. It's a very appealing pocket gun. Only thing I didn't like was the black integral sights ... so, used a toothpick to carefully dab some white epoxy paint in place, and let it cure for a few days. Great little gun. I have no trouble keeping it in the dinner plate at the sort of distances it's meant to serve.

I have the LCP II and it is a big improvement over the original. Better trigger, better sights, better grip and the slide locks on an empty mag. Plus it eats anything I feed it. I have tried 6 different types/brands of ammo and it shoots them all. Never had a failure of any kind. Ruger listened and got it right with the LCP II.

Both my wife and I have matching LCP Gen 1 w/ Crimson Trace Laserguard and just love them for what they are intended for.

Often times my most carried carry gun, I first had a KelTec P3AT which ran flawlessly, and the wife liberated from me (she still has and carries), then a first generation one, with the longer trigger pull and the smaller sights, then my current LCP Custom, which is from the improved LCP (2nd gen?) period, but also sports a custom red anodized aluminum trigger and improved sights. Do not confuse what I am calling the second generation LCP with the LCP II, which is a striker fired 380.

Not that snappy in my opinion, I’m 6’7” and have huge hands. I use +1 mag extensions on all my mags which also helps with the grip, and it wears Lasergrips which work great. I use the Recluse pocket holster (mine doesn’t have spare mag but same otherwise) when I can carry, have had it for 10 years with no issue.

I have the KT P38T which is essentially the gun that Ruger copied to get the LCP.

It is incredibly small and thin. You will forget you are carrying it, like literally.

Fun to shoot at the range? Nope. But mine is nice and broken in and reliable and it's a great carry gun when you want something small and light.
