    Going back to Cotillion's original question, a couple things mentioned in his criteria were "concealable" and "pocket carry." Unless you're Captain Kangaroo, some of these guns mentioned are not real concealable in a pocket. It's turned into more of a list of everyone's favorite gun rather than addressing the original question. Cotillion, you can't beat hands-on. Go to a gun dealer with a good inventory or to a gun show and feel a bunch of them in your hand and see how they fit your idea of "concealable."

    Even then, the best way to decide is to shoot. I wanted a small revolver so I did some looking around. My wife has a Ruger LCR which felt too small in my hand. I handled a S&W .38 Special Bodyguard at a gun show and it felt better to me, so I bought one. Then I took it to the range and I hated it. After I got my Ruger LC9, which I like very much (and won on this forum; thanks, Luke), I traded the Bodyguard for a S&W M&P40, which is my office desk gun and will be my winter (under a coat) carry gun. It's too big to conceal in the summer.

    I have an M&P9c and couldn't recommend it simply because out of the box the trigger sucked bad. After installing the Apex trigger parts (an extra $100 or so there) the trigger smoothed out tremendously but even then the trigger pull feels a mile long due to the hinged trigger and the reset is almost unnoticeable.

    That is just my $0.02, though. Many love the M&P9C. I bought mine last year - the newer ones may have better triggers.

    Personally, my vote is for a G26 with a good kydex holster.... and lots of ammo and practice and training. ;-) Ultimately the practice and training matter infinitely more than what particular gun you carry anyway.

    Easy choice buy a glock

  6. I've held just about everything, unfortunately there's no rental places here! I was shocked being from tacoma where they had one but not here in southern Oregon! I go every few days and re-look over everything which is a bummer because I have to gauge what's comfortable to shoot and recoil off other peoples opinions.

  7. I went and checked out the sr9c today and was VERY impressed, its definitely going to be my purchase. I liked the m&p also but the Ruger was for me. Thank you again for the suggestion

At first I was thinking lcp or tcp to make pocket carry easy, but being a bigger guy those little pocket 380s aren't to fun to shoot and id rather have a 9mm. So I thought kel tec Pf-9, but they are snappy little guns and I'm not sure if it will last as long as I need it too considering I can't purchase guns a lot. So then I thought the new kahr cm9, better quality, yet still gonna be pretty snappy as a single stack 9mm. So what's left, glock 26? I really don't want to get much bigger than that since it will be my cc :/

    So, you have around 500 bucks, no gun and need an EDC and concealable, what would you get?!
    Get the Glock 26. Its dependable, reliable and affordable!

  9. You cant decide.....

    I owned a Glock 23....it is a subcompact, NOT a pocket weapon...BUT you will find that the shorter the barrel, the harder to hit the target is.....yeah i know practice will make you better....the Glock 23 afforded me 13 rds standard, and 15/17 clips will also work....it is long enough to comfortably fit your hand, and quite honestly, i fired almost 2000 rounds through mine with ONLY one jam....which i blame on crap ammo.....I could carry it concealed on my hip with an uncle mikes holster which secured it in place and also put you on an auto course to have your finger in the correct position when the pistol was removed (not finger on the trigger)....you really need to go to a range and try to shoot different ones...it's a big purchase, and I have found that many do not fit my hand comfortably.....the only reason I do NOT have the Glock 23 right now is simple....I bought a Model 35 competition model which affords even more accuracy (i can already cut out a face) plus it gives me a good long range shot should it ever be needed....and YES the Glock 35 (8.15") WILL fit in my Glock 23 Holster and YES I can conceal it....LOL...my boss calls me "clint" LOL....seriously, at least go to a store and hold different pistols in your hand.....if you have big hands, you are sure to find that a pocket rocket will not feel right....personally, i am a .40 cal man....it has great one shot stopping ability...and if you research caliber ballistics you will see that depending on the ammo, it even outperforms a .357.....which is saying something.....GOOD LUCK, and do your research no matter what type you get....(check ballistics, you can google it....this may get you on the path as to which caliber you want to look at first).....one shot can kill anyone.....just not very likely with a .22 if you follow me

    I've never shot the LC9, but from those who have (like my wife's daughter, a cop-ette) it's a fine little gun, concealable and dependable.

  11. The lc9 was in the first set of guns I was considering but after coming to the conclusion I live in Oregon and if my gun sneaks a peak every once in a while it doesn't matter. 10+1/17+1 with a beautiful trigger pull and less recoil is more up my alley
