What are you talking about LCP for when LCP Max is out? It is obsolete now. The LCP line is a line of belly busters. Up close and personal get off me defense guns. I carry the Max every day. Throw some good name brand hollow points in there and you are good to go. I use the Ruger pocket holster than came with it until I decide to by a $30 sticky holster. If I were a perp, id throw my hands up just a quick to an lcp as I would an AK. The equality movement is real when it comes to taking a bullet.

So far, I see absolutely no reason to replace my LCP ll with a MAX, and no one seems to be able to give me one.

The Max is barely larger and holds x4 more rounds. Assuming you don't care or consider 7rds enough for a self defense encounter in which you have to deploy and discharge a firearm. That's not actually the point though. The point is know you can have extra firepower in the same package. Knowing this and still deciding not to do that is just ridiculous.

Previous iterations of LCP ( substitute various other pistols with endless stream of New & Improved Variants ) are still just as good & effective as they ever were . If something meets your expectations , and you shoot it well , no need to run out and replace it every year .

It is extremely rare that a new gun/ ctg is actually a game changer to instantly make a catagory of guns obselete . Somewhat more often a breakthrough gun could create an Additional subcategory that subsequently becomes popular .

Of the first , the one within living memory was the Beretta Tomcat . A normal priced subcompact .32acp instantly made every .25acp in the world into interesting paperweight .

Two examples of the latter would be the S&W M19 , and Glock G17 . The S&W ushered in medium frame
357 Mags . Glock ushered in polymer and constant pull striker fired ( and set the customer expectations that semiautos would actually work out of the box , with virtually any ammo , without automatically needing " reliability work " from a gunsmith or dept Armorer ) .

Oops. Misunderstanding. My LCP ll s are of both calibers , though I favor the ,22 with a 10 round mag. As for the other, the extra 4 rounds aren't worth buying a new handgun and putting this one away. Yes, the extra 4 rounds are a good selling point if I was looking at new handguns, but not if I already have the LCP ll. If I can't stop it in six, ten won't help. Multiple attacker shoot-out you say? Who says I only carry one firearm?

Mg LCP II is 7+1. I have two loaded additional magazines. That is 22 rounds. If I need more ammo then that then I am in a war zone.
Exactly! Who doesn't carry a spare mag or two? Sorry, not worth switching to the MAX. Again, if I didn't already have LCP ll the MAX would be a good buy. I mean, I have firearms that hold multiple rounds, but does that mean I should ditch my 2 shot back-up derringer?
