Probably true. They are definitely not drop safe.

duh... I am an idiot and its the guns fault.

Yes I am being a little hard on the guy. maybe if he took a little time to actually understand what a drop safety is then he would realize the lorcin does not have one. Instead he recklessly just assumes the gun is safe in whatever carry mode he feels is sufficient.

This is why a lot of these new fangled gun enthusiasts scare the crap out of me. Its like saying sheesh... i didnt know that the semi truck couldnt stop on a dime when i cut in front of him going,down that steep incline. Where was the lane safety? Why are semi trucks allowed to drive on the same roads as cars?

He should pick up a tokarev and carry one in the chamber with a hammer down next LOL.

and whats this talk of the firing pin not striking the primer correctly??? i guess it changed the POI on the bullet which allowed him to keep his leg LOL.... This guy is just too much.

It just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling,all over knowing these geniuses have CCW permits.

I was just refuting the idea that a CCP makes people safer over on the Hi Point Forum. I know lots of people who know jack about safety or guns in general that get permits.

He and his wife are "prior military"? In a banana republic, perhaps? I mean, he didn't tear down the gun immediately upon taking possession of it?

Here's the original post:

So I've owned a Lorcin 380 for about 2 and a half weeks. I purchased it used from a local store for $75. It seemed to be in decent condition and good working order. Then last Thursday it fell out of its holster about 2 feet onto a tile floor and it fired, shooting me in my left leg. I got very lucky that I was not critically injured, however I do have a hole in my left leg below my knee and the round is in my thigh. This gun doesn't have a drop safety and the springs are weak. From what I can tell the firing pin didn't strike the primer correctly. If it had my injury would have likely been life threatening. Or I could have lost my leg.
Had we known that it didn't have the drop safety my wife would have never let me buy it because of our children and animals. I wouldn't recommend this gun. My wife calls it the biggest P.O.S. She's ever seen and it says a lot considering we are both prior military. And we have never heard of a Lorcin until we found 1 at the store. I have very mixed feelings about the gun, on 1 hand I want to sell it because it shot me and on the other hand I don't want anyone else getting hurt by this weapon.


So, the firing pin didn't strike the primer correctly but the gun still fired? And he now has a hole in his leg and the round is in his thigh? Does this mean he did not seek medical attention? :shock:


He and his wife are "prior military"? In a banana republic, perhaps? I mean, he didn't tear down the gun immediately upon taking possession of it?


I can believe it, military and police can be very uninformed on guns.

Yeah, not to bag on cops but I've met some that couldn't even tell me what gen their Glock was. If I am carrying something for defense I am going to find out everything I can about it. Make, model, problems to watch for with the generation I have, and basically anything I can find out about it.

Lolololol...maybe Oswald had a lorcin..magic bullet theory...if I only had time to pick this apart..first u don't own or purchase a lorcins,some say it chooses u some say it's fate some say u just have bad luck,that's the only way to come into possession of a lorcin,$75 is both too much and not nearly enough at the same time...,lorcins don't go in holster,they go in the waistband ,lorcins don't shoot when u pull the trigger much less when u drop them, they only guarantee fire in a death fall,glad u weren't critically injured shooting urself in the leg,that magic bulleted into ur thigh,lorcins are the safest gun and the springs are made of unweakenable waldorfium..a primer igniting when a firing pin hits it means job was done right,if u were shot in the leg with a lorcin u weren't meant to have that leg, I'm guessing u and ur wifes'"' prior military(desk job) never put u in a place to use a firearms safety much less know what a drop safety is,ur children and animals hate u...I recommend this gun,if an l380 finds u, it's meant to be...u r the biggest pos ur wife has ever seen,what kind of husband gets shot in the leg by the magic bullet lorcin,lorcins aren't in stores they are obtained in back alleys and police evidence bins...I'm gettin bored of this...

somebody should send him a post saying the only edequate drop safety for his skill set is a lanyard.

honestly though... the best way is to carry one with an empty chamber. There was a guy around here who carried his Hipoint c9 hot and shot himself in the leg when he bent over to pick something up.

Then again I never cary chambered. i have never seen the severe level of difficulty and huge amount of time some have racking a slide.
