graehaven, I think you'll have this with the first of anything but I'd have to agree partially. The Kel-Tec is proven over a few years and is at a lower price. As I recall, Kel-Tec had some bad extraction problems when they first came out with the P3AT. Also, I'd have to agree that the Ruger is only a fatter version of the Kel-Tec which is a detractor as it is harder to conceal but only marginally. One thing I'll give Ruger credit for is better outer machining quality than Kel-Tec but that's about it.
I just returned my LCP to Ruger for the retrofit. It was exactly 7 days from the time I put it in the mail til I got it back and that was with a Holiday (Christmas) and a weekend inbetween. They took care of some other issues as well. Then they threw in a free mag with finger extension and a free LCP cap. Thats a company that is serious about customer satisfaction. Took my retrofitted LCP to the range and it fired everything I put in her. Great little gun and with the new CT laser, becomes a nice little package that I carry in my front pocket daily.
