    accurate and concealable

    Of all the 9mm weapons that are reasonable to conceal, which would you say would be the most accurate in real-world situations?

    For the purposes of this thread I will define concealable:

    1. 7" maximum length
    2. 5" maximum height
    3. 28 ounces maximum



    I think that represents a reasonable size constraint for the purposes of this thread and (probably) for the purposes of reality. If a gun meets 2 of the three requirements then we can consider it too.

    Glock 19

    My brother has this weapon, I have the Glock 17 while I think you could carry a glock 17 its not the most reasonable thing to carry every day.

    Glock 19 is probably the lightest, accurate, highest capacity handgun of any 9mm. The 26 is a good option as well however you dont gain very much from having it versus the 19.

    id have to choose a few guns but right off my head id say the ruger sr9, i believe its the glock 19 thats the midsized 9mm, and taurus millenium pro (i have one in 45), those would be my first picks. im not sure about their exact sizes or weight so it might be off of your 3 goals in the carry-gun

    Here's the Glock size comparison chart.

    The G19 is 6.85" long
    Exactly 5" tall
    And 20.5 ounces

    So it falls very neatly in the size range.

    I did not specify width, and the Glock is pretty thick so that works against it for concealment. But good capacity, reliablity and a good price.

    My vote would be a Kahr CW9......Accurate as can be

    .9" thick a real conceal advantage
    5.9" long meets req
    4.5" high meets req
    15.8 oz empty meets req thats 3 for 3 with a easy to conceal extra tossed in

    Accurate and dependable. Built well tight tolerances and a dang fine looking weapon.
    Will not give you cheese grater hand when you shoot it either.

    This is my #1 recommendation hands down in your criteria!!!!

    It's hard to argue with that.

    I think the Glock 19 would be a great choice. I don't own a 19 but do own a Glock 26. The Glock 26 can easily be converted to hold more rounds or even fitted with a Glock 19 barrel if you want, but it's really not necessary. I first bought the 26 because I thought that I could always make the Glock 26 bigger, but I couldn't make the Glock 19 smaller. Since, getting the Glock 26 I really don't see the need to make it bigger. I actually prefer a flush magazine to an extended. I also think it shoots fine with the 3 1/2 inch barrel (velocity wise and accuracy). However, they both make great CCW choices, and there really isn't that much difference to them. I think it's a half inch in length and a half inch in height.

    I'd venture a guess that most all modern handguns are capable of better accuracy, than the person doing the shooting. Make all accuracy claims relative to a Ransom rest, and you'll get some telling information.

    A Sig P239 is so damn accurate its downright scarey, might not be lightweight, might not hold as many rounds as others, but if hitting what you aim at is the prerequisite it fills the job superbly .......

    MMM, "the most accurate in real world situations"? Most pistols above the $400.00 and many below the $400.00 dollar range with at least a 3inch barrel
    and decent trigger are going to be accurate enough in real world situations. It depends on the pistol "you" shoot most accurately. Is a Glock or vis-versa more accurate than a XDM, Beretta, M&P, Sig, H&K, Walther or Ruger SR to name a few in real world situations? I don't think so.

    Find something you enjoy shooting and learn how to conceal it. Depending on how you dress and bend and sit almost any pistol in the size range you mentioned will print. Squatting instead of bending over to pick up things will hide the pistol as will using your weak hand to take something off the top shelf at Walmart instead of your strong hand which will drag your clothing up over the pistol. Learn to sit with the pistol towards the inside of the pew at church or the inside of the booth at restaurants. The Glock is a good choice for price and shootability and is quite light.
