The Ruger LC380 offers new shooters, especially newer female shooters, a great option for concealed carry. Many women who purchase a firearm for self defense end up with a snappy little .380. They take it to the range once or twice, and find shooting it so uncomfortable that they never try it again.
The Ruger LC380 is built upon the larger frame of the LC9 (as opposed to the small LCP – Ruger’s earlier model .380, which is known for its kick) to make it easier to handle. It also has a dual recoil spring that makes the slide easier to rack (nice for smaller-framed shooters). And, the soft .380 ACP gives the little Ruger a gentle kick.
These features make the Ruger LC380 an attractive option as an introductory pistol, for any new shooter.
