I have the Ruger LCP and the LC9 and you can't go wrong with either one.
I originally bought the LCP for the wife but she prefers her Taurus 85 Ultra Lite (gold trim and pearl grips
I'm not a fan of the 380 but I'm forced to admit the LCP is very convenient to carry and I'm convinced the absolute
best CCW is the one you are going to have with you at all times! My wife loves shooting my 1911s but realistically she is never
going to have one with her when she is out and about!
