    I like carrying the S&W .380 Bodyguard.
    Easy to conceal, very dependable, and proficient

    i chose the Sig p229...after a few months of carrying, I think the smaller p239 would be better.

    I carry a ruger lc9, love this gun. Cn hardly tell its there and it comes with pinky extension. Best of all it shoots any 9mm you feed it, cheaper the better

    I carry my ruger p95, I have heard that many revolver shooters fall in love with this gun. it's very dependable after a few boxes. not the best gun to conceal but amazing open carry gun. and it's cheap! you can find them anywhere from $275-$350

    The Glock is big, the LCP is tiny. I love my Ruger LCP, but the Ruger LC9 is between in size & weight of your 2 thoughts. I will have an LC9 soon.

    But both gun breeds have excellent reputations. The LCP is surpriseingly accurate 4 its size & is reliable, will shoot any ammo, cheap 2 reloads, 2 good stuff.

    All three are good guns, go to a range, rent all 3. Shoot all 3. Consider hiding & carrying it all day every day, & pray you make the right choice. :)

    get both. use the glock as a primary carry gun and the LCP as a back up when you just can't hide the glock!!
