    I just ordered one from your friends at Buds. I haven’t heard anything in the way of negatives on it in any of the reviews. Can’t wait to try it out.

  2. mike henry on November 18, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    9 o’ clock pm lol

  3. 42N8 1 on November 18, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    Finally a 380 with a 12 round mag.

  4. Adrian Hernandez on November 18, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    God protect this man at all cost

  5. Santiago Matamoros on November 18, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    Los Pollos Hermanos?

    Where did you get that shirt?!?

    I nearly spit my drink out! 😂

  6. Tyler Belt on November 18, 2021 at 6:27 pm

    You need to check out the Max 9 pro I think you’ll really like it

  7. XiZ Arthur on November 18, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Stupidity, rather.

  8. IamDoogy on November 18, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    I just picked up a Ruger LCP MAX today for $355.
    That includes only one 10 round magazine.
    Ruger includes a soft Ruger pocket holster.
    They also include a little magazine loader, kind of like the one Glock includes with their guns.

  9. CLL1 on November 18, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Hey guys. Great video. What’s your opinion of drop safety with these LCP2 and LCP Max pistols?

  10. Cgp1998 on November 18, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    It’s hard enough for me to hit a target 25 yards away with a compact pistol. Screw that.

  11. DragonsOfThunder on November 18, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    Lots of malfunctions with the extended magazines on the LCP & LCPII brother

  12. Brian Tulloch on November 18, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    Also, it fits in all P365 holsters

  13. BlueCowEyes on November 18, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I have very small hands, plus I broke my dominant hand last winter. So my hands are small and weak. Recoil is my biggest concern. I like shooting S&W EZ and my Sig Sauer 365 9 mm. How does the recoil compare? Thanks.

  14. Efe Dem on November 18, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    0.45 hahaha

  15. redline52899 on November 18, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    My wife and I both have one the only problem I had is I can’t really load 12 rounds in a 12 round mag 11 is ok 12 doesn’t seem to chamber right some times

  16. James Slick on November 18, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Oh,NO! I had OTHER plans for my tax refund…Well THAT just changed! 🤔🤷‍♂️Oh, Well… LOL.

  17. Stan Watkins on November 18, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Naturally, not available in California.

  18. cody D on November 18, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Close enough for government work “funny”

  19. theGid on November 18, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Can’t wait to get mine

  20. Fuzzy Davis on November 18, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Thanks hickok. Been considering getting one for my gal. She has large enough hands for my P95, but I want my turn back. Thanks brother.

  21. Scotty 28 on November 18, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    I had some old Remington Golden Saber 102 gr that we had to carry for our BUGs on duty. I ran it through my LCP Max just for the heck of it. Surprised after being in the boxes for almost 20 years it still went bang. That was the most accurate of all HPs at 15 yds that I ran through the Max but it was also the most recoil. My Max will eat anything you put through it. I also put a S&W Bodyguard .380 Tru Glo rear night sight on. The Talon Grip is something you’ll want also. It feels better with it on there.

  22. victor stella on November 18, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    I shoot great groups at 7 yards. Trouble is, they are 6” low. Can’t raise the rear sight. Can’t lower the front sight. Any advice?

  23. Glock 30acp on November 18, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    Awesome thanks hicok

  24. James S on November 18, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    It’s a win win, lot of trade ins LCP2 about. Still great gun with a spare 8 round mag.

  25. wrex4x4 on November 18, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    Hey Hickok thanks for all your videos I love your reviews on Guns I own two LPC2 I will be purchasing two off the LPC Max .

  26. mytquin on November 18, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    i put hogue grips on my lcp’s and they fit so much better in my hands.

  27. Sonny Gunz on November 18, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    I love the LCP Max! It’s the ultimate .380acp pocket pistol… but I carry it iwb hahaha most of the time anyway. I actually have two of them and a little over 300rds through them combined. They’ve eaten a half dozen different kinds of 380 with zero issues. Locked back on empty every time with all the mags (two 10rd and six 12rd) so far. I hope it stays that way. Everything about the guns I like. They don’t shoot low for me like other have mentioned. Thanks for the video.

  28. m0on m0nkey on November 18, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    Just picked up a tavor x95 and lcp max at same time, think this is my favorite purchase…says something.

  29. Ray Wilson Sr on November 18, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    Just bought one last week. It’s going to be my backup on my ankle.

  30. Patrick O'Brien on November 18, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    I have the original lcp for years and years. Still can’t hit the side of a barn with it but just having it saved my bacon.

  31. hickok45 on November 18, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    Since doing this video, I’ve purchased my own LCP MAX and a couple of extra magazines. I’ve also installed Talon Grips, their Pro version, on it. Makes for a very lightweight handgun with 11 rounds, for those days when you don’t really want the weight or size of a "real" firearm. 🙂

  32. 99z2853 on November 18, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    Been carrying the lcr357 all summer & bought a new P365 but if I could find 380 ammo the max would fill a void

  33. SILENT RAGE on November 18, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    I would kill for this man to be my grandfather. Humor, intelligence, and wittiness at 71 years old. A true American.

  34. Jacobo Leivas González on November 18, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    Desde España gran vídeo. Te has puesto perdido con el refresco. Jajaja

  35. _ on November 18, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    Is that a cowhide?

  36. dtisch on November 18, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    Love the size of the original LCP, but it’s practically useless for me because I have trouble consistently pulling the trigger. It’s so small that the only way I can pull the trigger all the way back so it fires is to use my fingertip, which feels unnatural and it slips sometimes. If I place my finger in a natural position like with any other pistol, I can’t pull the trigger back far enough to fire it. Will probably get rid of it. Any suggestions?

  37. Mr. Roy on November 18, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Thank you, for the outstanding videos, Sir. Which pocket holster did you select for the lcp max, Sir? Kindest regards, from Texas.

  38. Leroish Gamez on November 18, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    im simple man, hickok says gun is good i buy it

  39. David Dalton on November 18, 2021 at 7:03 pm

    Why does everyone seem to forget the KelTec.32 cal.
    Smaller same capacity.
    Less expensive.

  40. AXMRDR on November 18, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    It’s nice to have a small pocket gun when I wear shorts, which is what I wear the most.

  41. packinaglock on November 18, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    Just picked one up on my way home from work today. Nice little pistol, just slightly wider than my LCP 2 in the handle the slide seems the same.

  42. Brian Partlow on November 18, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    I like Ruger but not the LCP. I didn’t like the feel or sights. I ended up with a Springfield 911 in 380. My neighbor recently got an LCP 2. I don’t know if he shot it yet, 380 ammo is pretty scarce in NY stores.

  43. Ally Wilke on November 18, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    My Glock 27 which is small is always heavy to wear around all day.I am going to try one of these.

  44. Kaka KarrotCake on November 18, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    I was playing with one at the grocery store today. Told the guy I was thinking about buying it next pay check. He said he’d hold it for me so I guess I’ll pick it up tomorrow.

  45. gil moreno on November 18, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Love watching your video they have that peaceful atmosphere and I love the solitude of the mountains 🏔

  46. soulerflare7 on November 18, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    I still can’t believe what an awesome shot Hickock is . Hitting the gong at 80 yards with a micro pistol !!!

  47. Edward Anenberg on November 18, 2021 at 7:20 pm

    On my list

  48. Billy House on November 18, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you.

  49. white chocolate on November 18, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    I agree alot of the time a small light weight pocket pistol 🔫 is just what the doctor ordered

  50. Illusions04 23 on November 18, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    I can tell you, With you being able to hit that dong at that distance. I wouldn’t want you shooting at me cause I’ll tell ya no matter how far it is there is a 99.99% chance you probably hit me …lol great review thanks for taking the time to make this video.. we didn’t forget about you John thanks to you too… much ❤ from here in North Caroline
