I am really clueless but want to hear opinions on this. For me (repeat for me), the perfect/ideal CCW must have most of the following: - thin (less than 1.25" thick/wide) - short (around 6" long) - capacity (6 or more) - grip (really prefer long enough to still accommodate my pinky, not just up to my ring finger) - potent (9mm or > but prefer 9mm for recoil management) - weight (not so much a factor for me, the size restriction will reduce this some) - manageable recoil (I cannot quantify this but a heavier gun should help) I know I cannot have it all but want to find the best compromise/mix based on above criteria and my list came down to these.
