“The LCP Max might not win in the looks or shooting department. But it sure is the smallest and lightest gun that will reliably shoot 10 rounds of .380 ACP.” – Eric Hung

By The Numbers - Ruger LCP Max 380 ACP

It's a short barrel but does its job at defensive distances.
Feed it nice factory brass ammo with a 200 round break-in and you'll be fine.
Besides extended mags there's not much aftermarket support yet.
Super slim and tiny but might be jumpy if you don't have a good grip.

“The Ruger LCP II is a fantastic option for people looking for an easily concealed .380 ACP pistol. It is surprisingly accurate, considering its size, and plenty reliable for self-defense. One thing we’d like to see is better customization options. All in all, we really like this gun.”

final verdict

“But after learning its quirks I love it for its sole purpose…to be the ultimate combination of weight, size, and capacity for a .380 concealed carry gun. Be aware you’ll likely need some sort of break-in based on our experience. And to only feed it factory brass ammunition unless you want to train for malfunctions. Otherwise it has nice sights and a snappy shooting experience that make it still very effective for defensive distances. Based on its reliability, size, and capacity I carry it when I dress down with athletic wear that doesn’t support a gun belt.” – Eric Hung
