Default Concealed Carry pistol.

i know this has been brought up a million times, but what would y'all recommend for a good carry pistol? I'd prefer a 9mm but am open to suggestions. not really a revolver fan. Thanks,

What's your price range? Kel-tech PF-9 is a good choice for not an awful lot of money. Very reliable, good shooter, small, light and easy to carry. Long trigger pull but you get used to it with practice.

Depending on your budget a Kahr PM9 at $600 to $700 is a great pick.

If you can't afford that then an LC9 is pretty cheap at about $350.

If you can don't mind sacrificing a little concealability and a little comfort then a Glock 26 is nice too. I carry one because I like to maintain training compatibility with my go to Glock 17. There is also more capacity since it's a double stack.

Glock 26. I have one I carry from time to time. Berreta just came out with a new pocket 9, the Nano 9mm. Read about it in this months Guns and Ammo.

I'm 5'8" also, I think I'd rather want a pocket pistol type. I have a Kimber ultra covert II, and wouldn't mind carrying it, it's just being so big I don't think I would carry it as much as something smaller.

I tried to carry many larger guns, but as easy as i could "hide" them, it still wasn't comfortable, i rarely feel the need to carry,although i try to as much as i can, growing up and living in neworleans/brownsville im not as paranoid as some folks, honestly i dont feel the need to have anything more than a pocket gun on me

Some people start of trying to carry larger guns and end up leaving em in the car, where they will do you no good, best to start ccw'ing with a LCP/P380/P3at sized pocket gun, at least that way you will always have it on you reguarless of what you are wearing

whatever really... of course the cheaper, the better. but if I can justify spending the extra money, then I will.

I am a die hard revolver fan, but do carry a semi from time to time. Listed are a couple of the 9mm's that I either own, have owned or have handled before that I would consider as my CCW. Ruger LC9, Kahr PM9, Glock 26, Keltec PF9 or Taurus PT709. Sig Sauer is supposed to be coming out with a micro 9mm if they haven't already but I am sure like all their other guns they will be pricy but an excellent weapon. Don't ever count the revolvers out for CCW. Most confrontations are over after 1 or 2 shots fired and you just about can't beat the reliability and simplicity of a wheel gun. That is just my opinion mind you. Not trying to change your mind in the slightest. Good luck in your search.
