Even as a BUG goes too. That was when all you had was maybe 7 or 8 rounds of ball ammo,at best. Along came the Beretta / Browning BDA in .380 with 13 rounds. Now it is not a pocket,BUG or small gun. So I let that go . NOW comes the Ruger LCP Maxx ,.380 with either 10 round magazines [ or allowed by state or status ,the 12 round magazine ]. As for me,and I am POSITIVE I will get arguments [ yes,I got money bet on it ! ]. I see this as a game changer,I see this as a GREAT BUG,or third gun [ yes ,many do that besides me ] and even as an "around the house,cause I am not armed gun" Please feel free to tell me I am wrong,in your not so humble opinions ! btw = I turn 74 in 2 months and I am as stubborn as you can get,BUT the ability to change and learn is obvious by my willingness to see this pistol as a game changer. And btw,mine is enroute to my local FFL dealer as I penn this.
