We’ve all heard the same question over and over, “what’s makes a good concealed carry gun?” As Eric and Chad, from Moss Pawn Guns explain, a great concealed carry gun is one you will actually carry.
As guys, we would like our girlfriends, wives, daughters and especially our mothers as they age to be armed.
In this 13 minute video, the guys present a few possibilities
Here’s my take on this:
What good is a carry handgun, one that you’re not going to leave at home in the nightstand if you don’t carry it? Things to consider when looking for a concealed carry piece:
- The size of the weapon, is it something you’re going to want to carry?
- The weight of the gun, will this weapon drag your pants down or weigh down your purse
- Ease of use. Is the weapon something that’s fairly easy to use? Can you draw point and shoot quickly?
- Stopping power, while I have a .380 in my collection, I prefer a weapon chambered for .38, .40 or 9mm.
Each of weapons in the video are great, my personal favorite is the Smith and Wesson M&P. Similar to my old bodyguard (minus a laser) this weapon is easy to use, can be fired through a purse or jacket pocket without fear of jamming.
1-Diamond Back DB9
Single stacks offer shooters a thin, lightweight pistol that is easy to carry for extended periods of time and fits easily in the hand. Sure, they don’t have the same magazine capacity as a full size pistol, or even double stack pistols designed for carry, but what these slim shooters lack in round count See More…
Not being an impulse buyer, I spent quite a bit of time reading up before buying my little pocket rocket. I wanted to make sure my $$$ got what I expected. I did, and then some. I am pleased and not sorry I bought this gem. The Ruger lcp .380 is a quality weapon. Not showy–just my style. She does what I need her to do–be there to protect me and mine. Read More…
The CPX-2 from SCCY (pronounced Sky) firearms has gotten a ton of attention over the last year due to its’ size, price, and reported reliability. Here’s what I found since I’ve owned the gun Read The Full Story Here…
4-Smith and Wesson M&P Bodyguard (Crimson Trace)
What makes this one different? To their credit, S&W isn’t sitting back on its hands, regurgitating classics and hoping that the revolver somehow becomes retro-chic. Instead they’re innovating. The M&P Bodyguard is a composite gun. Look at the frame and you can see where advances in material science have allowed them to lighten the load. As the gun is a .38, and not a .357, there are more possibilities. The barrel is stainless, but much of the rest of the gun isn’t. The rest of the frame is an aluminum alloy. So the compact 5 shot is both small and light. Read More…
5-Smith and Wesson M&P Shield
Smith & Wesson’s new M&P9 Shield now joins the growing crop of palm-size, slim-and-trim single-stack 9mms that have been appearing on the handgun market at a rapid rate over the past two years. It is the lightest and smallest 9mm personal-defense auto S&W has yet offered: only six inches long, 4½ inches high, less than an inch thick and weighing just 19 ounces. Full Story…
