Colt LWT Commander is an excellent carry gun. Be sure you get a proper gun belt as well as a good holster. I prefer the belt from Looper Leather, in Okla. City.. Crossbreed holsters are excellent IWB holsters. If you can carry openly, paddle holsters are very comfortable to wear.

Well I finally got the pxt and I think I did good. It shot great. Only problem is the ammo is going fast. Real fast and I love it

Picking your first Concealed Carry Handgun can be a challenge. You want to find the right mix of reliability, stopping power, concealability, ergonomics, and accuracy. Plus, it has to be the right gun for your hands and your environment. Here's a write up on some things to keep in mind as you choose:

How to Choose a Handgun for Concealed Carry

Good luck! I'm thinking that a Ruger LCP or LC9 might be a good choice. But, I'm not sure about those short two-finger grips.

I have a Glock 19 that I am going to use for cc. I am just unsure about the safety. Should I be concerned or should I go for something that is hammered.

Ruger SR9c has a thumb safety as well as the trigger safety. Easier to conceal than a G19.

welcome to the forum. If your rock a 1911 and you love it and want a good holster i would suggest the raven concealment phantom. I use it with my xd 45 4" and i am 6'4 190 lbs and i can conceal mine with my everyday shirts. The good thing about the raven concealment holsters is they are easily interchangeable from an OWB to a IWB holster. They are a litte expensive but it is all kydex and raven warrenties their products.

Practice/range time is the key to getting comfortable with any handgun. If you don't feel safe with the G19, definitely look for something else. That said, and this is just me talking, I feel safer carrying my M&P in C1 with no external safety than carrying my 1911 that has three.
