rat,

Looks sweet! Are you gonna pocket carry naked or in a holster?

Given that it is a light trigger pull, single action pistol with no mechanical safety, mine never leaves the holster except to clean or shoot. Too dangerous to carry naked.

I have a 380 Ruger LCP and it has a fairly heavy trigger pull. I was unaware the LCP2 was that light. I'll have to check it out.

Nice! I carry my first gen with the factory mag and the Ruger supplied holster. It’s so unobtrusive, I don’t realize I’m carrying most of the time.

Good choice. That was my choice too. Mine is slightly different as the extended magazine has a small forward curling "hook" where the little finger rests.
I can keep mine in a cell phone pouch on my belt. Can forget it's even there!

It's got a mechanical trigger safety. Trigger pull of 6.5 lbs with .75" of travel. Regardless, the trigger guard should be shielded when carrying
