Ruger LCP vs LC9 vs LCR Lightweight Compact Comparison

Ruger LCP vs LC9 vs LCR Lightweight Compact Size Comparison with Triggers Aligned

We received quite a few requests to size up the Ruger LCP, Ruger LC9 and Ruger LCR. We found it quite interesting putting this size comparison together. The Ruger LCP vs LC9 vs LCR size comparison images are rendered with the triggers aligned in one image and the back and bottom aligned in the other.

Personal opinion: the LCP is an amazing pocket pistol that I carry almost everyday, even though I dislike the trigger, because it can be concealed so easily. It does not require me to wear a holster or dress in a certain attire to conceal it. All I need to do is throw it in my pocket holster and tuck it away in the back pocket. The LCP in a nice pocket holster is about the size of a wallet.

Sig Sauer P238 380 ACP Pocket Pistol Size Comparison DB380 P380 P3AT LCP P238 Bodyguard 380 TCP img2

We have sized up the Sig Sauer P238 for anyone interested in seeing how it compares to the Ruger LCP, Kahr P380, Kel-Tec P-3AT, Diamondback DB380, Taurus TCP, and Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380.

As for size, the Sig Sauer P238 is right there in the mix with the other .380 pocket pistols. The Sig P238 is also available in many, oh so many, different looks.

There are a few things that jump out and make you take notice while comparing the Sig Sauer to other .380 ACP pocket pistols. First of all you will probably take note of the price as it is in the very high end of the models mentioned here. Another thing is that the Sig is a bit heavier than the others.

If you are wondering how the Taurus TCP stacks up in size to some of the other .380 pocket pistols this will help. We compared it to the Ruger LCP, Kahr P380, Kel Tec P-3AT, Diamondback DB380, Sig Sauer P238, and the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380.

The Taurus TCP came out awhile after the LCP and right away had multiple model / material options. For those who were looking to avoid the standard Blued finish Taurus was a good option.

Ruger LCP 380 ACP Pocket Pistol Size Comparison DB380 P380 P3AT LCP P238 Bodyguard 380 TCP img1

If you need confirmation that the Ruger LCP is a good ccw concealed carry pistol you have come to the right spot because it is. However, claiming the LCP is a great concealed carry pocket pistol would require a bit more of a leap.

We compared the Ruger LCP against six of it’s .380 ACP pocket pistol competitors. The Ruger LCP scores high in craftsmanship, concealed size, reliability, and price.

The one glaring drawback to the LCP is the trigger! First of all the trigger pull is so creepy that people roll up their windows and lock their doors when he is in the neighborhood. To make matters worse you have a heavy pull throughout the travel of the trigger and since it’s close to impossible to find a consistent break point you will never be sure exactly when the trigger guard is going to kick back and hit you right on the end of your pointer/trigger finger. To be fair the issue with the guard kicking the crap out of your finger probably depends somewhat on hand size. If you are one of the lucky people that avoids the callused finger then all you have to worry about is the long creepy heavy inconsistent trigger pull.

Kahr P380 Pocket Pistol Size Comparison DB380 P3AT LCP P238 Bodyguard 380 TCP img1

If you are in the market for a new .380 concealed carry firearm and looking at the Kahr P380 we have put it up against 6 other .380 pocket pistols for you to get a better size comparison.

The Kahr P380 is right up there at the top of the price list. Unfortunately the price does push a lot of people out of the Kahr market while shopping for a 380. However, this no longer has to be the case because Kahr is now offering the 380 pocket pistol in their CW line. The new and cheaper option will be the CW380.

Until the recent release of the CW380 we prefered a few of the cheaper options as they provide a quality concealed firearm at a better price point. The CW380 has now made your decision a bit tougher.

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Pocket Pistol Comparison DB380 P380 P3AT LCP P238 TCP img3

The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 pocket pistol size comparison should help you judge it’s size compared to the other .380 ACP pocket pistols on the market.

Before we get started I believe it is important for us to put an “*” next to the Bodyguard 380 because it offers features that the others do not offer. The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 is the only pistol in this comparison that comes with a factory installed laser on the base model, or in this case the only model.

With the laser option the price of $399 is really a bargain! MSRP of the Bodyguard is only $26 more than the Ruger LCP. If you know of a $26 laser for the LCP “without duct taping a laser pointer to it” let us know!

Kel-Tec P3AT Pistol vs DB380 P380 P3AT LCP P238 Bodyguard 380 TCP

Hopefully this size comparison helps you out if you are looking at buying the Kel-Tec P-3AT or any other .380 ACP pocket pistol.

The Kel-Tec P-3AT is priced as the cheapest option amongst the other pocket pistols. It is also the lightest of all .380 pocket pistols. So why is there any question as to which you buy? We believe it comes down to fit and finish.
