Going loud with the new Ruger LCP II .380 (VIDEO)

Sturm, Ruger earlier this month caused a stir when they dropped the sequel to their now-classic LCP line and Hickok45 puts it through its paces.

The legacy “Lightweight Compact Pistol” topped .380 pocket carry evolution when it came out at the 2008 SHOT Show and in the past eight years has been consistently updated.

Now, the hammer-fired LCP has been rebooted, keeping most of the good things it brought to the table in the first place, but adding some definite improvements that are not just cosmetic– especially when it comes to sights and triggers.

And it seems to drill pumpkins with no problem.
