Product specifications and other details may change over time. Kahr has a California P380 version that is different from its regular versions. Kahr`s website describes why the Cal. version is approved with things like the loaded chamber display and the like. If you look at the features of the Kahr Cal version, you can compare them to Ruger`s features and find out what Ruger doesn`t. Hmm, there are a few on this list that you could use. NAA makes a good little weapon I have a NAA in .22 likes SA that works well. I see that the Taurus PT111 is there. Nice little 9mm, terrible impression.
Seecamp is also a great little weapon, but a bit pricey. Damn on the LCP and Kel-Tec two cool little weapons. Good luck to you, Rye PS: There is no comparison in the trigger train between a Kahr and a Ruger. The Kahr has by far the best trigger. There are several weapons that are great cover options, but Paniolo asked about the Ruger LCP. I agree that the 9mm and .38+P are more powerful than the .380 car, but again Paniolo asked about the Ruger LCP. By Guest Paniolo Cowboy SASS #75875, on November 28th, 2010 in SASS Wire So I discovered that it was not on the CA-approved list. and small enough to carry in your pocket (I do this all the time — Never leave the house.

This is not hearsay because we have several DAO Rugers owned by family members.
Most people don`t like them because of it. I just found out I can`t buy it in California. Ruger is listed in the instruction manual on page 14 at the top of the page. I could be wrong, but most gun manufacturers don`t recommend carrying a gun with a bullet in the bedroom. I assume that the statements are made for reasons of responsibility. I`ve never heard that with the LCP until this thread… I think I should read the whole user manual and not just the parts about disassembly and cleaning. By the way, there is no «loaded room» display, but there is a «window» on the top of the weapon to visually check. The LCP MAX in .380ACP contains 10 cartridges in the same footprint as the LCP II.

Paniolo is thinking of getting one for Mrs. Paniolo. Is LCP a good choice? In my opinion, yes. It is easy to hide, it is extremely lightweight, it works perfectly and with good defense ammunition, it will definitely make a perp think twice. I think his questions have been adequately answered, and I doubt he needs any more information on that gun.
And does anyone have any idea when it will be approved CA, if any? You have a valid point with the .38 + P, but no weapon is perfect. I have been wearing a Model 36 for many years, but the new models with the combat grips have a drawback, they interfere with fast chargers. They are just wide enough to prevent shells from falling easily and often getting stuck. I know it`s a hotly debated topic, but I let it pierce in my head between academic education and departmental policy to always have 2 refills on my person. Although the .380 is suboptimal, reloading is a breeze and the 2 extra cartridges paired with decent ammunition (Corbo, Hornaday, Buffalo Bore) level the playing field a bit.

It has NOT been submitted by Ruger for testing, and they will NOT submit it for testing. I think so, and it is up to him to make that decision. Any gun that does not pass the drop test or is not recommended by the manufacturer to be carried with a gun in the bedroom, I personally do NOT want my wife to carry such a weapon.
I have no problem with those who wear them, but not with any member of this family.

I have a Ruger LCP and I`ve never seen anything that says it shouldn`t be worn with one in the bedroom. How did this announcement come about?

One of the reasons California doesn`t approve of it is, as Shorty put it, that it`s «too hidden.» EXACTLY! That`s why I wear one.
If it wasn`t recoverable, I wouldn`t wear it. If a person was so inclined, they could walk around the city with nothing but a fig leaf and could still hide the LCP. I`m not sure where he would hide it, but I have no doubt it could still be hidden.
