There is going to be a lot of original LCPs up for sale. 

Nah, not going to be worth selling now.  Just use it as a BUG.

Sell it or trade it now. I have an LCP that I probably will just hang on to.

For a simple pocket gun, the original LCP is hard to beat.  Essentially dehorned with reasonable rounds makes it lighter.  All of these high round capacity guns make my pants sag🥴

The LCP-Max weighs 10.6 oz empty and with 11 rounds of CCI 95gr, it come in at 14.6 oz.

Compare that to: 

Ruger LCPII with 7 rounds of CCI 95 gr at 13.1 oz. (the LCP would probably come in around 12.5+ oz.)

S&W 442 with 5 rnds of 135 gr, Speer Gold dot at 17oz,

Glock 43 with 7 rounds of Federal 147 gr HST at 21.6 oz

SIG 365 with 11 rounds of Federal 147 gr HST at 23.8 oz.

The Keltec P32 is 8.07 ounces empty and 10.25 ounces with 7+1 of Fiocchi 32 ACP 73 grain FMJ.  I normally carry it (only around the house) with 5+1 putting the weight at 9.7 ounces. Add the SM2 Sticky holster and it totals 10.63 ounces.

Honestly, would love to see this little pistol come out in a 10+1 configuaration.  I had a P32 and let my daughter have it, when I bought my LCP.  She carries it all the time.  I've never liked the LCP, like I did the P32.

Of course, it would be nice if Ruger made the LCP-MAX, in .32ACP as well.

What interests me are the removable sights.  

10 rounds is nice

380 is unobtainable so why bother upgrading my LCPII, ie can't get enough ammo to shoot anyway.

I could get behind the .32 version LCP. I have a bit of 32 squirreled away.

Also had a P32. Sold it in a fit of insanity. Good little pistol.

Don't know about your saggy pants problem...but I'd suggest suspenders. 😉

Now for something real...I have an LCP with a CT laser. Had it since the LCP was first brought out. It's a bit snappy, but I think it makes a very nice pocket gun for when you run out in your primary.

I have one of the LCP customs, the one with the red aluminum trigger and (slightly) better sights. I like it because as a pocket gun, the trigger pull is long and heavy enough to act as a DA revolver type safety feature, but light enough to be usable. I managed to snag another one, sitting in my safe as a NIB "ready service spare".

I'd snag an older, minty KelTec P32 in a second though, but have no desire for a "high cap" variant. Hard enough to get .32 to feed as it is and the whole point of a P32 is light and slim...
