“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.”
The Ruger LCP Max is the third generation of the LCP series and now fits 10+1 or 12+1 rounds of .380 ACP. It weighs less than 11 ounces and is less than 1″ wide making it smaller and lighter than any current micro 9mm. Perfect for comfortable carry or even alternative carry options.

Ruger LCP Max 380 ACP Variations & Comparables
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.
The Ruger LCP is a .380 chambered semi-auto pistol that offers a convenient concealed carry gun to those looking for a slim pistol. Perfect for pocket carry, this tiny pistol also works well as a backup gun. It can hold 6+1 rounds in a standard mag and 7+1 in the extended mag.
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.
