The Best Bang For Your Buck For CCW
Anyone who is in the market for a CCW, what would you consider to be the best bang for your buck and why, and what were the best features that sold you on your choice?

The one I liked & shot best that i could afford :)
Any other suggestion would just be my opinion & there will most likely be enough of those-

I have three different guns for ccw. I carry a ruger lcp in 380 when i need ultra discrete. This replaced my bersa thunders mainly because of size. The other two are a colt new agent and springfield xdm compact both in 45acp.

I dont look to be budget concious on a gun that i may have to use to defend my life with. I want one thats going to work everytime. Thats why i ruled out glock sw m&p and others. Other folks have different opinions thats cool.

I shoot my ccw guns ALOT if they have failures its no longer a ccw gun and either gets traded or sold.

Ive been thinking about ways to carry my ruger vaqueros ccw heh.

Bersa Thunder 380 CC or Ruger LC9. Prefer the Bersa for the better trigger.

I'm sorry, I have a suggestion, but I wanted to make a point first.

This is a concealed weapon that you hope to never have to use, but if you do, you are going to need it to be 100% reliable. At that moment, do you really want to think about how you saved $50-$100?

I mean no one finds out they have cancer and asks for the middle of the road treatment option. :o

I would look used and I would look polymer like Glock to be honest. There are millions of them, so they aren't rare to find used, they go bang when you need it and they are not difficult to carry or use. I would look at a .45 personally, but that is based on what you can shoot effectively.

Good luck.

Every scenario has different requirements.

I do not limit myself to having only one firearm for self defense.

I may carry with a shoulder holster when dressed up and have a .45.

But that same .45 is kinda hard to conceal when at the pool or beach.

Whatever you decide to get, get the best. Remember that you are protecting yourself and you should not rely on something that is "iffy" (firearm, holster, and ammo)

If I had to pick one, it would be the M&P Shield 9mm.

I do not consider the phrase "most bang for my buck" to mean I'm looking to save money. I assume it to be more like what is my best option without NEEDLESSLY spending way too much money. Personally, I've come to the decision that I'd like a Sig P938 Rosewood to carry. That sub-model is not on the market yet as far as I'm aware. I bet I could go more expensive, and way cheaper, but this one fits the bill, and may be the BBFTB.
