HK USP Compact
Springfield Sub XD
when i get my CCP i will have the ruger LCP in the pocket
then i voted glock 26 but my second choice would be the glock 36
never shot it but between the kick from a small gun and the amount of ammo
i'll stick with my glock 26 with backup magazines of the glock 17
i even have a 30 round glock mag!!
Springfield XD Sub
My favorite is not on the list
Colt LWT Commander
Out of those listed, the Sig 239 would be my pick. I have 2 Sigs already and love them.
None of those listed.
Mine is a Beretta Cougar.
There is one I would pick. But it isnt on the list. Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm compact. Thinner than the Glock and XD. But more comfortable.
SR9 or Sr9c then it would be the 26 or the Walther
I selected the CZ 2705, even though no such gun exists, because I assumed it was supposed to be CZ 2075 (RAMI).
I can't really recommend it for anyone else, though, because mine had severe feed problems, out of the box, and I spent over a year getting it to function properly with SD ammo, and regaining confidence in its reliability. Most of that time was spent testing different bullet configurations, until I found one it liked, copying its form for hand loads to practice with, and shooting it until I was sure that it was very reliable.
The reason I took the time and expended the effort was because this subcompact shoots as well as most full-sized pistols. I can hit paper plates with every shot at 25 yards with this gun, and it conceals very well in a home-made IWB holster.
It's not on the list (not out when the list was made).
I vote for the Ruger SR9c.
Small and compact and a great gun. for the price (even for double the price).
1. S&W M&P
3. Glock 19 or 26
5. Rugewr LC9
You can swap 2 and 3 if you prefer. I had a .45 usp compact H&K. I didn't care for it at all. My friend swears by it. I just traded mine for a G19
HK USP COMPACT
But honestly its kinda a heavy and bulky gun for CCW, would sometimes think me better off carrying the G17
Beretta PX4 Storm Compact. It's a shooter.
I have a Jericho 941 RPSL and that is a great weapong. Problem is the distributors, which keep changing hands.
Not a real problen, but it is good to know who you can fall back to. The Jericho is imported from Israel where
it is the handgun choice of the military IDF. It came in handy today (9/18)to help wipe out those Gazan terrorists. The
new importers call it the Jr. Desert (something or other). Great 9mm; very accurate.
You need to try on a gun. The Diamond back 9mm for example did not fit my hand. I really liked the Kimber Solo, but I test fired it and I would not trust my life with a Kimber solo. I fired a Glock 26. Very reliable gun, but it is not a true conceal gun especially if you pocket carry. It is too big for dress pants. I settled on a Kahr CM9. It cost me $399 and fits nice in my hand. It is just a little larger than a 380 and front pocket in a super fly is very comfortable and no one in my office has ever noticed I am carrying. I carry one in the chamber so a good holster is a must that covers the entire trigger and nothing else goes in that pocket. I also like the Kahr because in a stressful situation I don't want to worry about a safety. (your holster is the safety) Pull the trigger and it goes bang. I have tried various concealment and front pockt is the quickest and most natural. I can have my gun out and fired in one second. You can't match that speed with any other concealment. Good Luck Russ
Russ you are fast dude......I can't get my gun off my hip in a Bladetech holster on target and fired in one second. Nice work!!!
The CM9 is a fine weapon I agree. You can thank your lucky stars the DB9 didn't fit your hand in my opinion.
I used to carry a P239, but I prefer the P250 subcompact now. Overall dimensions are similar to the 239.
I enjoy my Jericho RPSL. Now know as the Desert Eagle Jr. (New distributor)
