Whats the best power in a small package for ccw
I like the small pocket nines.
I would say a commander size 1911 .45acp
I would have to go with a compact 1911 but if you want smaller these micro 9mm's like the Kahr CM9, Sig P290, XDS, M&P Shield (comes in 40) are all nice CCW options.
Hard to beat a small 1911. I really like my CCO. However, I will admit that the XDs intrigues me.
FWIW, I find .45 acp easier to shoot well in a small package than a .40 S&W.
I know this is a semi auto thread but my vote goes to a small 2in barrel revolver in 357mag.
Good power and a nice sized package but at a serious loss of accuracy usually.
My glock 30 holds 10 plus one they also have a 27 round mag for it. For another 200 bucks i can convert it to a 10mm. Id say thats alot of firepower from a small package.
You mean something like this?
I dont know about a serious loss of accuracy. True it will be a little less accurate but if you can hit center mass at 15 yards do you want a 45acp or a jhp 357mag
Honestly not sure exactly how the two compare. Anyone have a link?
All I know is at that range I can put a. 45 or 10mm in your head every time. With the sp101. 357 I would have to aim center mass and hope you're not wearing a vest.
Fair enough. Every one has a preference and mine would be a 357mag revolver.
And to your point of hoping they arent wearing a vest, how many average muggers are wearing kevlar
A longer barreled one like the patrolman. Than I'm with you. That thing is fantastic and I could shoot your eye out at 50 yards kinda hard to conceal though. If the snubby works for you. Go with it. I just can't seem to shoot the damn thing. Lol
True. But 1 well placed shot is always better than 5 shots.
I would have to say xdm compact with a 460 rowland kit. Between 10-14 rounds of 44magnum level performance.
Next inline i would say xdm compact 45acp .
Colt new agent/defender 7+1 45acp.
While i like the idea of the springfield xds they really dropped the ball not making it 7+1
Then there is the soviet tokarev 7.62x25 very slim very powerful for its sixe round. Too much penetration and speed for practical self defense
No thats full size he said in a small package. Nice piece you got there
Yeah I know. I just like to show it off. Lol
Don't blame you there
