    Question New CCW gal from Ohio

    I'm a new CCW (female) permit holder with tiny hands. I have a Taurus 9 mm slim,
    but, I feel like it's really too large for me to conceal very easily without carrying a
    purse all the time. Anyone have any suggestions for a very small gun for me?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Do realize that the smaller the gun (in 9mm), the more recoil and the harder it is to shoot.

    Maybe look at the Kahr PM8 0 but I actually sold it because it wasn't that enjoyable to shoot. I picked up an M&P Shield in 9mm. But, that's probably too big for you as well.

    Maybe look at some of the new micro 380s.

    Yes....I know that the smaller ones are harder to shoot. I have a 38 S & W bodyguard that would be great for concealment, but, the grip (believe it or not) is too slim and it tears up my hand. I have stopped at an area gun shop and they are looking into finding different grips for me.
    When you say that the Kahr was not enjoyable to shoot, do you mean it's too big, too small ? or not accurate ?
    When I was 18, I worked in a sporting goods store and every time they got a new handgun in, Forrest had me try it out. I haven't
    worked there in 30 years and it's been nearly that long since I fired a gun. My new husband got me interested again and we are
    having a blast. However, he has HUGE hands, size 18 ring and wears XXL gloves, so I don't think he understands when I tell him
    the gun is too big. I'm definitely going to take a look at the Kahr. Thanks so much for your help !

    My wife had a 709 slim and changed to a Ruger LCP and seems happy with it as far as concealment, not a lot of fun to shoot but she does keep her practice up. She has a love for Sigs in full size and has a favorite to take to the range SP 2022 in 9mm.......JJ

    You don't want to carry in your purse. Most of the members here would agree with that.

    But where do you want to carry? Inside the waistband? Ankle?

    And how well can you shoot the Taurus Slim? Does the recoil bother you?

    Once we have some more context we can better answer your questions.
