What's your favorite Concealed Carry Gun Brand? (Poll)

I’m a Glock Girl. reasons: really good gun fit - naturally accurate for me, good geometry. Reliable, durable, I like the look, feeds most anything. Plus a former Mosad trainer I spoke with said “get a Glock… you can drop it, swim with it, drag it through the mud and it’ll still fire every time.”
My other option right now is the Ruger P89. It’s an older thing, and not a tack-driver, but again it’s naturally good fit, sufficient accuracy, and feeds-absolutely-anything functionality is very practical. It’s a little big, but I’m a fan of servicable.

I have carried several different firearms over the years, but my current every day carry gun is a SIG P365. It is very easy to carry concealed in all kinds of clothing, plus its capacity of up to 12+1 for its size is just hard to beat in today’s market. Now, since the P365 seems to be a controversial choice due to early guns having problems, I will add that I have run nearly 2500 rounds through my P365 with no problems thus far. I have also found that the P365 has very good accuracy for such a small gun. I have shot it out to 25 yards, and I can keep all shots from one magazine (10 or 12) on a piece of standard printer paper. That is good enough for me to trust my life with my P365.

I have a Taurus PT709 Slim and also carry in the small of my back. I’m heavy set (6ft 245lbs) and I really couldn’t find anywhere else to wear it while driving for hours without it digging into my stomach,thigh,or fat roll somewhere.

I switch between a Glock 19 and a Glock 27 for my EDC. I like the 19 for the capacity but the 27 is more easily concealable which makes it a little better in the summer months.

I prefer Glock, for CC I prefer my G26 w/TLR-6.

Did you see this thread about Glocks, @Eric1?

Hi Dawn. I have a Glock 19 gen 2 that I bought new in 1990. I’ve tried all the other generations of Glocks as well as the 43, but nothing compares to this one. I appreciate the single stack 43 for it ability to print less, but there are trade offs and it still doesn’t shoot as well. When they say Glock perfection, this gen 2 really fits that description.

The best 2 (4) pistols that I have trained with is Glock 20 Gen 4 10mm with a KKM Conversion
4.6" barrel 40 caliber SW, when you want to practice and save a lot of money.
Plus the recoil with .40 caliber SW is easy on the hands, with that 4.6" barrel.
The 10mm is a .40 caliber and can be approaching .41 magnum power.
The other pistols are a Sig Sauer P320 Full and Compact 9mm’s. The compact is a
kit and you change out trigger chassis and move on.

Nice! My summer EDC is Glock 27 in .40. I put the mag from a Glock 23 with a 2’ extension to give me more grip being a sub compact. It also brought the capacity up from 9 to 13 rounds (not counting the one in the chamber. How do you like the Sig P320? I never shot one but I hear it’s pretty sweet.

That is what I am glad to hear. Good work on your craftmanship, excellent.
That is a EDC with class!

Thank you

The Sig Sauer P320 is also a confrontable firearm and the full size 17+1 and
the compact is 15+1… It is easy to clean and work well.

Hmmmm… It appears both you and Dawn like those P320’s. I’ve been wanting a Sig. I like the P226 Elite but it isn’t really practical for my use. So I need to check out the P320 and the P229… What the hell, it’s only money right? lol

Brian, if I may say this to help. We are all different and guns, pistols, revolvers, and rifles are in
many sizes and weights. If possible try before you buy and study the firearm that you want, not what someone has or wants. Make sure it FITS YOU, sir.

Thank you!

Thanks for the advice. I’ve been carrying, collection and building guns since 1974. Nothing will ever “fit” me better than my Glocks. I just want to add a Sig to my collection. I look at it like my Colt Python. They are all great guns. But what’s the old saying,… I show my friends my Sig, I show my enemies my Glock! :wink:

Like Glock firearms, the Sig Sauer has many choices and many builds and always remember that the
smaller the pistol and higher the caliber is, the recoil will effect us all. Takes much time and cost to be the
BEST. I rather you be safe and enjoy life. Thank you, sir.

I currently have a Glock 19 and Glock 23. I went to the gun shop today to buy my next gun, a Glock 43, but the NICS system was backed up so I will have to wait until it comes through. Based on the article, it looks like I made the right choice.

I had the 226 and sold it so I could buy my 320 :rofl:

The 226 was awesome, but I wanted to carry the 320.
