Going the distance with the Ruger LCP II .380 (VIDEO)

Eric with IV8888 shows off the snappy sequel to Ruger’s now-classic LCP line. A gun that is set to see regular service in his household.

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 the sights and trigger.

Eric does point out the pocket pistol was finicky on ammo types, however, so keep that in mind.
