Thread: Looking for CC pistol

  1. #11
    I'm left handed and my primary carry gun is a Sig P229R Equinox. All I had to do was reverse the magazine eject button to the other side. Sure, the slide lock lever is on the left, but that just required an adjustment in how I lock the slide back. Feels perfectly normal.

    The S&W M&P is very left hand friendly. All of the buttons are duplicated on the right side of the gun.

    Dr.David you got the compact model didn't you. I think it will be quite a bit smaller with the sub compact conversion.

    Yes. I think the only way you can buy it now is in the compact model. I am sure the subcompact would be perfect for carry, but if I recall the conversion kits are over $400. I don't, however, have any issues carrying it the way it is. It is just a little bigger than some people would want. Sig Rules.

    Check out the Kahr K40. Sweet trigger, no safety, (DAO). My own 40P doesn't get used much since I got the Kahr's'.

    I was about to say my Dad is a lefty and he loves my M&P. I've found my 9mm "full" and compact to be extremely reliable and carry the full size every day. At 6'1" and 175 I don't think I conceal it very well in a T-shirts but, no one ever pays attention to me much either.

    howdy!

    i wouldlike to recommend the makarov. economically priced , ammo can now be found nearly everywhere and in nearly every configuration. small enough to carry and big enough to do the job. last i heard the St. Petersburg, Russia Police Forces are still using them and so is the Soviet Special Forces.

    I carry a Makarov. Nice gun. Fairly small size makes it easy to conceal. Very accurate for its size due to fixed barrel design. Very simple design makes it easy to clean or work on. Not that you'll ever need to work on it because they are super reliable. Built like a tank tough. I got mine (unissued Bulgarian) about 6 years ago for $195.00. I've heard they are getting hard to find but I still see the Bulgy's for about $225.00 and E.German models for about $350.00. The 9x18 ammo is not hard to find but is not as common other calibers.

    If u like sigs the p 250 is da only but has a sweet smooth trigger, incredibly accurate and has ambidextros slide release. no decocker being DA only. also upgradable should you decide you want a full size or a larger caliber for any reason. I shot one that was a prototype and was immensly impressed.

I'd like to stick with .40 cal, but I might consider a 9mm. My CZ is a decocker model and I really like that, but really my only requirements are .40 cal and ambidextrous safety (I'm left handed). I really like the Sig Sauer's, but none of them are lefty-friendly.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks
    Being old I never ever thought I'd be shooting tupperware much less praising it but now I can not imagine a better EDC for me. Two guns in one with the 10 round compact magazine you have a compact that still holds more than a full size 1911. Slip in the 13 round mag and you have a full size Tactical or Service model. Carry the compact with a spare mag makes for twenty four out the door. That is a lot o HST flower power for the BG. What continues to amaze me is this is a compact .45 and it is just a blast to shoot and I swear I am a better shot because of it. Not once since I have had it have I left the range because I was beat up from shooting it. Now the XD isn't a beauty queen and you can get lots of prettier guns than an XD. There are even some that are more accurate. But there are none that are more reliable or better suited for EDC than an XD.45. IMO the XD.45 compact is the best Self Defense Every Day Carry gun there is. With well over 2,000 rounds through it without a single FTF. I know it is Rock Solid Reliable. Hits everything I point it at. Eats everything I feed it. Simple to clean & maintain. The grip and trigger safeties are natural and intuitive. No manual safety to confuse matters or cause a delay when nano seconds count, make it ideal for self defense. In a K&D Holsters, my XD is infinitely concealable and a breeze to carry all day long. make it ideal for EDC. Add Springfield-Armory's life time warranty and Springfield-Armory's acclaimed customer service and you have the best EDC you can buy bar none IMO. The XD of course are available in .40 9mm and .357.

    Talking I like

    my XD-9. have had it now for about 18 months.
    15+1 it fits well in my hand and Im one of those that actually like the way they look. its balance continues fully loaded and as the clip empties IMO. as for accuracy, I would be more likely to place the onus for the lack of in my lap not the guns but thats just me :) lots of choices out there, it really boils down to a personal like.
