Making sure you choose the correct gun for the job is vitally important. When considering conceal carrying a firearm, you need to look at how the firearm:
-Feels in your hand (how it feels to grip). Is the grip long or big enough for your hands? Is it too small or too big to comfortably hold and shoot?
-Weighs and measures. How heavy is the firearm? Is it too heavy for you? Is the firearm too long to properly conceal? Is it a full-size firearm or a compact/subcompact?
-Operates. Can you rack the slide and pull the trigger with ease?
With this considered, we recommend getting a smaller firearm in a compact or smaller size (sub-compact/micro compact). The Smaller the size firearm you use, the easier it will be to conceal but can be “snappier” when shooting. This is something to look at and try to find your middle ground on size/recoil that you are comfortable with.
This may be one of the most debated questions in the firearm industry: which caliber is best for carrying? We find the answer to be simpler than the vast number of online forums indicate. Choose the caliber that you feel most comfortable with. If you are unsure of which caliber you feel the most comfortable with, go to your local shooting range and ask to try some rental firearms in different calibers. Practice with the caliber that you choose and become comfortable with it. As long as you practice and develop proficiency with your caliber, it doesn’t matter which caliber you chose.
The most common calibers to carry are .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 10mm & .38 SPL. The firearm you choose will dictate which caliber will be available for you to use.
