This is just my opinion
Hate to say this as I am a big Ruger fan but I had a .380 LCP & hated it
I would personally look at the LC9 though it is a little bigger it would still make a good carry gun. The LCP to me was to small & hard to get a good grip on it even with my small hands. Ring finger & pinky hang below the grip. it has a torque to the side when fired rather then a straight back recoil. It is also a point blank range gun unless you get the model with the drift adjustable sight
The 9mm would give you more "firepower" & one extra round for little more money here are the basic specs of the two
