re: Compact 9MM for CC?
Kahr cm9

Or

Kahr cm40 with a 9mm conversion barrel..


The cm series I believe is still the smallest of all those you have listed.... Cheap and been really reliable imo


Tho if you want to spend a bit more money my next want is the sig 365 with the XL lower conversion

I have been using gundeals to get my info and pricing. It appears that the Taurus G2 or G3 are more available than others. Is there a reason for this?

shawn,

OP,

I'd go with a Shield at that price. I have shot 3-4K rounds through mine. I had trouble with one magazine, but once I figured that out, it's shot every time I've pulled the trigger. Buy 4-6 extra magazines, or you'll get tired of loading them at the range. At some point get an Apex trigger installed.

Impressed with mine. Good gun.

Now they were real good when you could pick one up for less than $200.

You can still find for $249.

Save a little more money and get what feels and shoots the best for you (if you can test fire some) and don't get a manual safety. You want something that you can quickly draw and fire accurately that is comfortable to carry. I would look at:

Walther PPS M2
Glock 43 or 48
Sig P365

Those are all better built with better triggers than the ones on your list.

re: Compact 9MM for CC?
Hell no! not with all those crazy safeties it has what? 3 that I see?
Won't fire without mag in it?
Won't fire with thumb safety?
Won't fire without grip safety?

Lol isn't one enough? How many extra parts and springs does that require to maintain??

When did shields get all that stuff? Is that just Cali version?

Depends if you want a compact (G3) or subcompact. I just picked up a G2C for $165 after rebate. Trigger ain't great, but it's accurate & have no issue with it. If I was going to lose a gun, this would be the one due to cost of replacement.

re: Compact 9MM for CC?
I have no problem waiting and saving up a few more bucks for a better gun. Except that a lot of guns on my list are just about impossible to find. What are my chances that if I wait a few months I can find the gun I want. Going by an Academy a week ago pushed me to look now due to the amount of people lined up to buy handguns.

re: Compact 9MM for CC?
From your list I have the Shield and the Canik. Both are great but the TP9 has become one of my favorite guns since I bought it at the beginning of this year. I used to have a SCCY and it is a decent budget gun but Im not sure if the cpx 2 is the SA striker fired one. I had the DA only and beat it around in the farm truck.

I will say, SCCY had great customer service. I dropped it one day and broke the rear sight off and they sent me a replacement within a week with no questions asked.

I want to like the EZ but it's nearly an inch longer and half inch taller.

Taurus guns are good, but they took a bad beating in their reputation a decade or so ago with some really, REALLY shitty semi auto guns... Mainly the PT111 Millennium guns, of which these Taurus G Series guns are HEAVILY based off of. They've supposedly made major strides in the quality, fit and finish since "re-branding" to the G series.

I had a G2 a couple years back. It's a good gun but the biggest knock on all the Taurus G guns are their triggers. They have a SUPER LONG take up, a heavy break and an almost indistinguishable reset. Have big hands and had trouble squeezing my index finger enough to get it to break/fire and it caused me to have poor shot placement. Had to get rid of it.

When it comes to revolvers, Taurus has a solid reputation but their semi autos are still suffering from their bad history and are still "not quite there" when it comes to being a good enough gun to be relied upon as an every day carry. That's why you see so many of them and why they're priced at the level they're at.
