Most subcompact, compact, revolver's are not target guns either. I would say on the pocket gun start at three yards. Learn and practice drills, move up to 5, then 7 then 10 yds and up etc. It is up to the shooter how far he wants to go how much he wants to put into it. When I started shooting them, my idea was, Hey, if I am going to carry one, might as well become proficient. Just like most things in life. Get into some competition with some friends. Challenge yourself. Get competitive with yourself. I find them addicting. That said, they are not for every one. And I would never start a young shooter or inexperienced shooter with one. And anyone that does not train diligently is just wasting their time.None of the 'mouse guns' are target pistols. It was suggested to me to practice getting 5 shots into a 5 inch circle at five yards as rapidly as possible, which is equivalent to 'COM".
Very true in my experience.Picked up the Max and a 10 round mag after ignoring it for several months. Warmed up with a few dry fire reps to recall the fundamentals, and then I got to work.
3 yds 5 shots of 100gr FMJ using a Dead on Hold. The Max will do its part when you do your part.

I have had the same experience---when I sure up my grip, I can knock the plates at 7 yards--if i'm half hearted it's like I'm not even aiming!I haven't shot the LCP II but from video reviews understand there are some differences. They are similar size and weight though.
I imagine if you are accurate with one you have a good chance of being accurate with the other despite minor design improvements of the max.
Operating with the LCP kin is much like operating a shotgun. Both are inherently abusive relationships. Either you be the dom or you be the sub.I have had the same experience---when I sure up my grip, I can knock the plates at 7 yards--if i'm half hearted it's like I'm not even aiming!
