Good CC weapons

I have decided to finally get my CC permit and would be interested in some of you guy's opinions of guns I should look at as I have not had much experience with compact pistols.

I was thinking about going with 9mm (since I already have my ruger and plenty of ammo), but I am open to different calibers as well.

Experience with different holsters would be cool as well.

The ones I like the look and feel of are, springfield xd, walther pps& pk380, and the smith&wesson M&P compact. Others I have been told to check out are the kel-tec pf-9 and the kahr pm-9, I haven't had the chance to fondel these yet. I'll let you know which I decide on If you want but I need to get some trigger time before I decide. I also need my dam tax return to pay for it .........Still waiting...........Does anyone move slower than the IRS?

it depends

how are you dressed most of the time? what holster are you going to use ? you dont want a middle of the back holster its a pain when your sitting and driving and you can be disarmed from behind and if you draw in a hurry you could shoot yourself in the leg or back. my opinon is get a carry you dont have to draw across your body or as little as possible i have a few holsters it depends on how many clothes,, you have on and how comfortable you are when you are carrying what gun i drive alot so i have a high ride thumb break pancake and i all so have a shoulder rig with a horizonal holster its all comfort hope i dont want to sound like a know it all lol and if you can go to a range that rents guns and try a few out have one here and you have to join the range club and buy ammo from them but what ya going to do spend a few bucks to keep from buying some thing you wont like

Hamp.. on CC weapons..

That advise about the small of the back is pretty spot on, but i have a galco that i can either wear small of back, or about 6" further around toward the front.. If im wearing small of back, and driving i just pull the piece..Ive found weight to be really important, makes a huge diffrence in how your cloths fit, and how comfortable you are, I like my airweight, but thats dinasour talk... Since you already have the 9 i would stick with that.. lets you cut deals if you get someone to reload for you, or start doing it yourself..(like im gona have to..) How about the small Ruger... That way the mags would (maybe) interchange.. If price was not an issue.. yeah right, i would get an old series 80 light weight Colt cdr.. they made them in 9, and also in stainless.. These are becoming very expensive tho..

I've got

a Glock 26 & 19,both 9mm(just in case you don't follow the numbering system of Glocks,us glock guys just oohh and ahhh and nod our heads upon hearing certain numbers.The 26 is ten rounds stock,the 19 is 15 stock,both are great for CCW.The 26 is my all the time carry piece,i put it in my vest or coat/jacket pocket and it just about dissapears,no holster.The holster i have for the 19 is an Uncle Mikes paddle kydex holster and a Don Humme IWB,which i just got a couple months ago,the kydex keeps the gun up high and tucked into my side,which i like a lot and it has 2 screws to adjust the tension on the weapon,keeping the gun in the holster.In my case the 26 is the newer gun so it gets more attention from me,i shoot both equally well and don't believe there is any fall off there( i am not a huge fan of the one ragged hole belief,if i can shoot fast and hit about a six inch group,i'm happy).my .02 on CCW.

G19 and 26, Don Hume IWB holster, also have a Galco belt slide holster left handed so I can carry both at the same time if I want. Crossdraws and shoulder holsters are good if you spend lots of time in a car or at a desk, but they're awfully easy to block the draw and take away compared to hip carry.

comfort and carry

personally i like compact 45s but there nothing wrong with 9mm . take some time and find a gun that is comfortable in hand and where you plan to conceal. if you get something that is not comfortable you will not carry it . if your lucky like where i live you can rent it and fire it b4 you buy it .

stay alert.... stay alive

I found just that gun, I went with a Walther PPS in 9mm, it is a damn fine
pistol. It didn't take much thought once I got it in my hand, I knew it was the
gun for me.

Got it at impact guns....more than I wanted to spend, like $600 not including
holster and 100 rds of hollow points.

Walthers have an excellent reputation and are used as "issue" weapons
all over the world for people who need guns for work. The way I look at it is
you get what you pay for, and when mine or the lives of my family hang in the
balance that 6 bills doesn't seem like so much.

Makarov?

What about a makarov?

There pretty small and pack a half decent punch, 9x18mm with an 8 round mag.

I also bet the gun and ammo are pretty cheap if you ordered from a former soviet country.

brand names

you can get good hand guns at shoot as well as brand names for about half the price and for about 500 bucks the new ruger SR9c 9mm has good reviews so far with ajustable sights my next gun and i bought a bersa 45 cal sub ultra pro for $450. plus tax it shoots very well and i bought a metro arms 1911 for the same price thats shoots very well it held patterns in the black at 25 yards right out of the box with white box ammo with a life time warrenty . bersa is one of the safest hand guns on the market in my opinon i do own a gold cup match 45 and i own ruger wheel guns and a few S&Ws 38pl if your going to C C why carry some thing like a kimber or a 1200 dollar gun that may end up belonging to some one else it happens and guys laugh at me when i get out my 9mm hi point its good for C C when you may drop it off the boat fishing or camping its a good truck gun its all what you can afford and what works for the job your going to do with it i have heard things like clocks shoot under water i laugh and say i aint going shark (or 8 foot killer carp ) ( its a lake erie joke i told my kids and a few chicks back in the day lol ) hunting with a hand gun
