I went yesterday to my LGS to put a LCP Max in my hand. After reading all the issues this model is having and feeling the trigger I have decided to keep looking. The LCP 2 had a better trigger, for some reason I think they are the same but it felt different. If anything I'm considering the LCP2 (leftover in .380). Looking into the Kahn CW380 or the Glock G42.
glock 42 is a great gun…..Medford shooting range has one you can rent
the sig p365-380 is about the same size, better grips, 10 round capacity, night sites, optics ready, and has slightly less recoil then the 42 when I shoot them back to back. Plus you can put a full size grip on the sig for even more recoil control
I also enjoyed shooting the S&W EZ 380 too, it’s a lot smaller then what you see in the pics
