Hello everybody. I'm turning 21 in a few and live in a rough city in Arizona and I'm looking for Some advice. I have narrowed my carry options down to two pistols: the S&W Shield in 9mm or a makarov in 9x18. Both have similar magazine capacities and capabilities, can I hear some thoughts on what you would prefer? If these aren't up to par for concealed carry, what about the CZ75 compact. The handgun and ammo for the mak is cheaper but this will be my ccw so is it worth the money to drop the extra on the smith? Also, I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask this question so if anyone can link some good threads, resources or advice any and all assistance (legal, gear or tactical) would be greatly appreciated.
