A Tan LCP
With new and gee-whiz firearms coatings popping up left and right, I came to a crossroads in which I needed to make a choice. Here is the story of how I ended up with a rather sandy looking .380.
My Ruger LCP dilemma:
So I carry a back-up gun from time to time in my line of work. Occasionally in street clothes as a normal CCW practitioner, I also sometimes cannot carry a full-sized handgun comfortably without printing, especially in summer. This leaves me with one of the best compact .380s of the past few years, the Ruger LCP, as my go-to BUG or CCW choice. However one slight issue with the pistol is the common complaint that the LCP’s slide can often turn to a rusty mess over time. The fact that I live in a near tropical environment where shorts and flip-flops are common Christmas attire, and the LCP lives in ankle and IWB holsters can only add to this problem. With this in mind, I decided to rustproof my LCP permanently.
I called Dan at Custom Coatings (228-265-2820 firstname.lastname@example.org facebook ) and we decided on DuraCoat.
