I recently acquired a Ruger LCP. I had previously owned a Kel-Tec P3AT. If you are
familiar with these 380s you know they are almost identical, but parts are not interchangable. Yesterday I found a Kel-Tec magazine with a +1 extension in a dresser drawer. I took the extension of the Kel-Tec mag and put it on the LCP mag. Fits and works perfectly!

Good to know. How many rounds did you put through it during testing? I am actually a bit surprised it worked though given the fact mags are normally the source of malfs in a semi-auto loader.

I actually prefer the mags sans ext though. I want the total package to be as small as possible. On a re-load mag I guess it would be OK but even then I have enough shee-ite in my pockets already so the smaller the mag the better for me.

I put 28 rounds through it (4 mags) with no problems. The Kel-tec mags and LCP mags are made by the same manufacturer in Italy.The only difference is the
location and size of the mag catch "notch". The extension only adds about a 1/4" to the grip, and I like having "just one more round".

How does it shoot?

A friends wife has a .38 LCR and she really doesn't like it... It's too hard for her to hold and it's too loud. She thinks one of these small .380'd would be easier to shoot.

jb, it shoots great. The Kel-Tec did also but I wore it out. The LCP seems to be a higher quality handgun, better machining, better finish. The 380 would be a great handgun for a lady. Small enough for small hands, works great in a purse, fanny pack, or even in shorts pocket, like VolGrad said. Bottom line: I think she would like it!
