Ruger LCP Evolves

I've owned and carried a Ruger LCP for about two years now and couldn't be happier with it... Well, to be honest I wish it had larger; more "usable" sights and a "better" trigger. I've grown accustom to these two aspects; so much in fact that when I recently handled a 'new' LCP I was blown-away and traded-in my two year old for a brand new model.

Notice the difference in hammer position.
Ruger has addressed the two loudest objections to their pocket wonder. The trigger is still heavy but with a distinct decrease in pull distance. The sights are now larger and can be indexed off of more readily than the original design.

If you have not had the chance to handle the new and improved LCP I suggest you do so. With just two simple improvements they've made a very attractive pocket gun even better. I have not seen any announcement of these changes; so it appears to be a running change to the model.
