    Hi All,

    I am looking for a CC pistol.
    Have the following choices in mind...Glock26, Kel-Tec P3AT, Walther PPK/S or Walther P99c? Which one would you pick?

    Thank you guys.

    Glock 26 or the Walther p99c. Glock is smaller but fatter. Both are 9mm you can get the p99 in 40 too. The Kel-tec is not even close to the others. Make a good back up but would never carry anything under a 9mm for your primary CC. A 380 is not as powerful as someone punching you, it may kill ya, maybe but my punch has more stopping power.

    Actually, I wouldn't recommend any of those size guns in 40. Stick with 9mm.

    The Glock 26 and the P99c is where ya wanna be. I had a Glock 26 for 8 years, but never liked the trigger. Got the P99c a year ago. Now, I much prefer it....

    Everyone knows what I have to say about the P99, that's why he made the popcorn face above

    Basically I agree with Spacedoggy's post.
    From the choices given, I would definately go with the P99c. I have a PPK/S. It's pretty and James Bond liked it but it kicks worse than a 9mm and bites the hand that feeds it.
    I've heard good & bad about K-T's. I've had no hands on experience with them. They are probably good little guns and I've considered getting a PF9 when they are available.
    I've shot some Glocks and they performed well but for some reason they just don't excite me. No doubt they are excelent guns and it would be my 2nd choice of the choices given.
    I own a S & W MP40 that I love and will be buying the MP 9mm Compact soon (it just came out) for lighter wear CCW. IMHO, the MP's can hold their own with any stock (as opposed to a tricked out, custom 1911) pistol on the market today.

    I'll bet all those killed from a .380 and buried six feet under ground would have rather been punched by you. That's a bold statement...never heard someone compare their punching ability to any bullet exiting a handgun.

    Since I own a .380, and have personally seen what it can do to a watermelon at 25 feet with hollowpoints, I can only say you should SERIOUSLY reconsider THAT mistaken statement!!

    I have respect for any round. I have been shot twice, once by a 22 in the leg and a 380 in side that lodged near my spine by L4. Both were accidents. To remove the 380 I was given a 20% chance of making it out of surgery. That was five years ago and I taking pain killers everyday. Before that I was a physical security consultant with an Army background and IT. When consulting a company I would refer them to a half dozen firearm trainers and the one I like the most is Bill Murphy. He has a book out and talks about the 380 round. He is the one that states an average punch has more stopping power that a 380. Please feel free to take it up with him.

    I guess I wasnt clear enough, your punch has as much stopping power as a in the wind at 25 feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Actually, on Mythbusters - NO round but a shotgun slug has any "punch". Rounds don't knock people back. They did tests with many calibers. Only the shotgun slug made any movement in a hanging animal target.

    Shot placement is what counts.

    To get back on topic gunster99, I would not use a 380 or less as your primary unless you only intend to shoot watermelons. Your not going to beable to place the shot using the ppk or keltec. Go with a 9mm cheap to shoot and get some +P's for your CC.

    WHERE do you get this stuff from and WHAT do you have against the .380?????
    No its not a first choice CCW for most people but better than nothing or lesser calibers.
    I can shoot 4 inch groups at 10 yards with my PPK clone so why tell people this stuff???? SHEESH

    I would opt for a 9mm. Ammo is cheap and available anywhere they sell ammo. It has plenty of stopping power for a pistol if you use hollow points. I think you cannot go wrong with a Glock or Walther. My choice would be a gun with a 4" barrel if you can accomodate that size. Hence, I would choose between a Glock 19 or Walther P99. If you want one with a 3.5 or so inch barrel, you might also consider the H&K USP compact. It looks like a very good gun.
