I'm getting my CCW license in a month, what should I buy?
I'm planning on getting my Michigan CCW license in just over a month, and I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a new gun. Though I don't plan on carrying immediately (I'm on a college campus 90% of the time) the two I have aren't really suitable for concealed carry if I ever have a reason to do so. I'm looking for:
Barrel between 3" and 4"
Grip large enough to fit my whole hand, no pinky hanging off
Not a Glock (They just do not fit my hand)
Other than that, anything's an option. The S&W SD9 caught my eye, as did the Ruger SR9. Any thoughts?
I advocate the idea of "one gun does not fit all". What works in winter may not work in summer. As a student, I presume that $'s are not in excess. Look at Bersa, Kahr, or others like that. Southern Ohio Guns and Bud's Gun shop seem to have some good deals.
Good luck in you search.
I have a Kel-Tec PF-9 and have found it to be excellent for concealed carry. And it's also fairly cheap.
S&W polymer frame .40 cal
Is a favourite of one of my friends, (Im not sure if that model or the
9mm version are still on the market though). But look for a good used one
as a possible choice. My Makarov .380 & AMT .380 are my favourite choices,
but even though I favor semi-autos... the Taurus Judge has caught my
interest & I plan to examine one @ the next gun show that come in three
configurations that are 5 shot models that fire .45 long colt or .410 shot-
shells. (The .410 option might be what I need to bag a Grouse or 2 when
hunting big game)!:cool:
XD subcompact with a pearce grip extension. Get yourself a crossbreed supertuck and one of their belts. You can wear shorts and a t shirt and forget youre even carrying. here's mine in .40
CZ 2075 Rami (good but small)
Any 9mm Kahr
A Kel-Tec PF-9 (like some one mentioned above is a good choice)
Taurus PT-111 Pro larger and more capacity that 709 "Slim"
And IMHO the best concealable 9mm the Springfield EMP, but pricey!
BTW, The XD sub-compact is also a good choice but I don't have the info on it.
However, the best advice it to try out a number of guns and get a feel for what works for you and stick with that. I tried to give you some choices to start with but this is by no means a complete list. Finding the one that is best for you is the key. It may be something I would not have even thought of but is perfect for you.
But remember when you get it; you owe us a range report, :D.
UHH, I think the gent...
Was looking for a concealable handgun to fit larger hands? Khar is a good
choice with several models, but so is a Whalter P-38! And the Whalter along
with it's modern clones do not have the "floppy barrel" like m1911's! I like my
P-38, (but, if I had to choose only one handgun...it would be my Luger)!:D
What ever you do don't buy a: Jennings, Bryco, Jimenez, Raven, Lorcin.
