What is the best gun to carry concealed?
Not trying to be a smart a$$, but I would answer that with...... "the handgun that you have become proficient with".

A hit with a .22 beats the heck out of a miss with a .45.

As you can see from my avatar, I normally carry a Seecamp LWS32, front strong side pocket in an Aker sharkskin pocket holster.

In more formal wear with a cover garment, I use a shoulder rig with either a Colt Officer's or a full-length .45....
During casual wear, no coat, I just stick a PPK or Mauser HSc in my pocket...These are all-steel, but no printing. Wear a belt or it might sag your trousers...

the more gun the better so a minimi in the trunk is ideal but id say most poeple would do well with a springfield xd in .40 or .45. although a 12 gauge under a trench coat for a winter eve's stroll is nice as well.

Default Kel-Tec P3AT

.380 power in a .25-sized package; light weight, flat, undetectable in a pocket, hits where it looks--what's not to love? No, it's not a .45, but it'll be there ALL the time. I'm a fat guy who doesn't wear a coat once in a blue moon, and on me a full-sized combat pistol is about as easy to hide as a grapefruit. I need a SMALL gun, and the P3AT has the most power for its size and weight on the market--except for those (apparently) platinum mini-9s. The P3AT is also affordable; not all of us have $2,000 to spend on a carry gun. Under $300 at a gun show--and that leaves plenty of money for practice ammo. It's the solution for me; if you can afford and conceal a Cylinder & Slide Shop custom Kahr, congratulations; for a po' boy like me, the P3AT is a godsend.

Depends on the environment you intend to carry in, and how well you shoot.

If you are cruising for trouble in the city, better carry something big that holds a lot of ammo. If you are just worried about getting jumped in the parking lot, a well placed round from a 22 auto like a Berreta will do just fine.

If you are hiking in pot growing territory, carry something with punch and a longer sight radius.

No matter what you carry, there is no substitute for training. If you can't hit, you're up the creek. If you are accurate, a rock will do.

One of the best carry guns is the S&W Bodyguard.

I am just awfully fond of my Browning 22. It's lightweight and it's my favorite plinking pistol. Plus my shotgun is just too cumbersome to tote around. I am looking for a nice purse made specifically for CC. Anyone know of any places to find one of these?

Any gun that works is the right answer,I spent 12 years in the Army and I knew a few snipers and believe it or not a .22 round is several sniper's choice for many reasons,I would of thought a .223 or a 5.54mm round but most say the .22 does plenty of damage once inside the target and they are easy to silence.
