Choosing a gun for CCW is a personal thing...what works for me may or may not work for you. Generally speaking either the Glock or Ruger would be a good choice, as would SigSauer, Springfield Armory, Smith and Wesson, Colt and a slew of others. What calibers are you looking at, what type of concealment, i.e. belt, inside wasteband, small of the back, ankle, etc.
My advice would be to find a range that rents different guns and calibers, try out a few and see whats feels right. Keep in mind a 9mm Glock may feel and shoot differently than a XD or a Sig 226. Once you narrow down the choices then look at the ease of concealment...a compact Glock will conceal more easily than a Beretta 92...again that depends on your build and holster placement.
Above all make absolutely certain that you are comfortable and confident with the gun before you step out the door, get some training if needed. Do some soul searching and be sure that you are prepared to take a life if the need arises and remember, you own the shot once you pull the trigger.
