Conceal Carry Preference

I started a thread last week about the ideal handgun to carry for a CCW. I got a lot of good feedback and ultimately came down to 2.

If you believe a different option is better, leave a comment.

Please link the thread. I am assuming it came down to CZ P10 C?

Edit didn't see poll. My vote is for the CZ P10 either Compact or Subcompact

Had an MP9c with external safety. It's ok but the trigger is awful. You can very slowly squeeze the trigger all the way without releasing the striker.

My department issue is a glock 19. I've never really liked them until this one. After about 1k rounds they really grow on you. At least mine did. It's so consistent it's scary.

Overall the biggest factor is to train. I don't care if it's a ruger sr22, train. No one rises to the occasion, we fall to our level of training.

If i was to carry every day, every where. I would carry a Walther P99c, DA/SA striker fired 10rnd w/ a 15 rnd spare. Carry with a long 11lbs pull, after the first round, 4lbs pull. Add some true glow night sites and a custom cross draw holster. Its one of the few handguns that is DA/SA without a hammer or safety. Been around the world, tried and true for decades.

I have an older Star-Firestar M43 in 9mm. i used to have the same model in .45 ACP, but it was a little heavy for my tastes. its a very nice mini-1911 style semi auto pistol.

I am considering getting a S&W M&P Bodyguard with a laser sight...they seem pretty nice, small, and reliable. im getting too old to be fighting people in the street if it comes to that...

I carry the M&P9 2.0 with the 4.25" barrel and tritium sights, the new ones fixed the trigger issue that a previous member posted about. My recommendation would be to go to a local range as most of them around here do a rental program where you can pay like $10/hr and shoot their guns but you have to run their ammo through it (which can be a little more expensive). This way you can see which is more comfortable for you to shoot. Keep in mind the M&P9 2.0 comes with changeable hand grips so you can change the comfort level if that's an issue.

I also agree that training is the most important thing no matter what you go with. look into any local courses that offer more advanced training or get involved with you local gun club that may hold competitions. I have found steel shooting competitions to be a huge training aid because it helps put you in a little higher stress situation as its timed and depends on reasonable accuracy plus everyone is usually super friendly and willing to help with any form issues you might have.

Next step: Holster. Go with Aliengear. You wont be disappointed.

CZ P-07 or Sig P365 or Sig P365XL if if need the size.

Wouldn't shy away from the M&P if the trigger was nice, the Glock would be ok if it fit my hand better.

With my build and our Florida weather, I rarely can get by with anything as large as a G19 (besides, its my wife's G19). I carry a G43 daily and my BUG is an LCP.

Although we do have acreage and you'll rarely find me without my G17 strapped to my thigh or my G43 with extra mags on hand. Too many snakes, bobcat, panther and coyote to protect our dogs from.
