So can I put a little metal clip on any of the guns?


Yea, they make those little clips for lots of tiny carry guns.

But for a new concealed carrier, I would recommend you get a holster with a trigger guard cover. Once you get some confidence after carrying, then maybe you can step up to that clip deal.

Any place you recommend me getting either one of these? They seem to be fair priced but out of stock at the places I checked.

I'm not an expert, far from it. But why would anyone want to carry anything smaller than 9mm?

Just curious.

Bought my P32 on BudsGunShop.com. I have the little metal clip on the side as well.

I've been biting my tongue. 9mm is the absolute smallest I would/do carry. Anything less is taking a serious risk.

InB4 better than nothing.

Man, I saw Sylvester Stallone carry a .22 pistol and he was an Assassin for crying out loud. He seemed to do just fine against Antonio Banderas with that .22, so until you can prove otherwise I am sticking with Stallone.

Leave it to stallion to prove me wrong

Eta: what I mean is caliber rounds smaller than 9mm stand a very good chance of not getting to something that matters. Fat heavy clothing and bones all pose a much bigger obstacle in reaching vitals. You may end up catching return fire for not packing enough punch. Think about it... You aren't shooting because the circumstances are ideal. shite has hit the fan and you need to kill somebody at this point.

I have no prob with a 9mm. I do have a prob carrying something bulky or heavy on me all the time so I won't do any good if I'm not packing. Im ignorant to these small guns. Can you recommend anything similair in size or weight in a bigger caliber I can look at? TIA

This simple division here is the difference between IWB carry and pocket carry.

Some people can pocket carry a subcompact 9mm, but generally, it's less comfortable. But, when sticking a subcompact single-stack 9mm in your waistband, you will immediately forget about it.

I think for the price, the best carry 9mms are the Kahr CM9, which I own, and the S&W M&P Shield which a couple of my friends own. I haven't seen either one fail on a range visit, and I've shot my Kahr probably somewhere between 4-5k times.

The best advice I have for you is to go to the store and hold all of these. It will give you a real idea as to how small they are.

Tagua IWB holster from Jim's. It was about 30 bucks and is pretty comfortable. One of the full-blown pancake IWB holsters may be more comfortable but this gun is small enough already.



EDIT: If you want all the gritty details, here is my long review.

re: How many of you actually CC everyday?


Thanks for the picture. That setup looks great. Is that holster longer than the barrel?
I think I may go exactly with that rig if that Kahr feels good in my hands.

It must shoot really well also for you to have fired it so much. I know you said it is damn reliable, and I doubt I ever shoot it 4k times. I mean it isn't a Glock, but sacrifices have to be made sometimes.
