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.A 380 is not as powerful as someone punching you, it may kill ya, maybe but my punch has more stopping power.
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.
No, I missed that episode.
Ill havta take your word on that
However I believe those would still be seriously affected by atmospheric conditions(aka downwind or upwind )
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.

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.
Well, the only issue with the HK USP compact is that the gun itself is about the same size as the P99. The grip is just as big, and the footprint of the gun is nearly identible. If I am gonna try to carry my USPc, I may as well just carry the 4" barrel P99. Its the length of the grip that sticks out when carrying anyway.
Given a choice between a 4" barrel and a 3.5, if the guns are similar overall in size, I would always go with the 4.
