Please don't buy a Taurus. If you value your life you will get something better.

Also, you may as well check out the S&W M&P 2.0 Compact since the Glock 19 is listed. I got a great deal on mine ($330 with night sights and free shipping) and it's arguably a better gun.

A Taurus .380 most of the time because it's easy. I have a wallet holster that fits in my back pocket, it goes BOOM every time I pull the trigger and it's pretty accurate for its size.

Is it like this where the trigger is completely exposed?

For decades my CC gun choice is a S&W model 642 revolver in 5 shot .38, holstered in a Uncle Mike's size 3 in my right front pants pocket. I've bought many guns online from Grabagun and KYgunco, used a FFL for the transfer and am very pleased with their selection, price and availability

Glock 43 most of the time and the 26 with a jacket. I like the compacts, can hit with them good enough for the range I consider kill or be killed, and just roll my pinky under the magazine. The 43 in a crossbreed Supertuck is practically unnoticeable to me when I wear it. The 26 prints more, requires larger than my normal waist sized pants and makes it difficult to access my wallet in my back pocket.

I have a SIG p365 xl.
I love that little gun, it shoots really good. It really shoots like it’s a much bigger gun.

If I’m not carrying that it’s either a VP9 or a Glock 19

Now that I think about it, the SIG holds the same number of rounds as both of those and it’s much easier to carry.

Do you have the manual thumb safety or no? What ammo have you run into thru it?

I have two that conceal carry easily and are fun to shoot, the H&K VP9sk and an M&P 2.0 compact. Both are 9mm. Depending on where I'm going and how I'm dressed I may opt for one of my Walther PPQ's, the 9 or the 45.

Have a Kahr CM9 now.

I will buy another and it will be a Glock.

Love the cm9 and trigger is awesome. But I have had 2 ftf and ditched the ammo I was using at the range.

Had a issue last year or so at a gas station late at night coming from work when two guys started approachine hollering something inaudible but you could tell was unfriendly..

Wondered if I'd have to defend myself and thought later about whether or not I trusted the Kahr. Glocks reputation is undeniable. It'll be my next handgun purchase.

re: Shopping for a CC handgun- What is your go to and why?
For a number of different reasons, I don't have any of the guns you mentioned. Regardless, since I have been carrying concealed for a number of years, I've developed some thoughts.

quote:

What are you favorite cc handguns and why?

I started cc a Springfield XD in 40 S&W. It didn't take long for me to realize it was going to be too heavy and too thick. It was quickly replaced by a Kel Tac PF9. As things have evolved, my cc guns have gotten smaller and lighter. I now carry a Kahr CW380 (pocket carry) most of the time, followed by a Kimber Micro 9 (IWB) a good bit and a Kahr CM9 (pocket or OWB) sometimes. During the in between years, I carried a Taurus Model 85 in 38 Spepc, Kel Tec PF9 Commander 1911 45 ACP, Officer 1911 in 45 ACP, Kahr CW45, and Kel Tac P3-AT. I came across a Taurus G2c at a bargain price let year so I bought it to see just how bad it was. The OB loves to hate on a Taurus. It's become my cc gun when I'm hunting. I do't worry about getting it dirty or wet while hunting since it cost <$200. Work dress requirements are the reason for carrying the 380 so much. All my cc guns have a healthy break in period before they're carried. All have been reliable, even the (hated by the OB) Kel Tecs and Taurus. Given the advances in defensive 9mm ammo, I'm comfortable carrying a 9mm instead of the 45.

Single stack guns are more comfortable for me to carry that double stack guns. The 380 is always carried in my right front pocket. The Micro 9 is carried IWB. The Kahr CW9 is carried in the front pocket or OWB. I just bought a Kahr CW9 last week but haven't broken it in yet. It's main use will prob be at church. I always carry at least one spare magazine for whatever gun I'm using. Buy both a nice holster and a holster belt. I prefer leather holster. I use leather or synthetic belts, depending on dress requirements. Obviously I like Kahr's, but not everyone does. Unlike striker-fired guns, a Kahr trigger is longer, but smooth, like a nice DA revolver trigger. My Kahr's break at 5-6#.

None of the guns you mention are well suited for pocket carry. Are you going to cc IWB or OWB?
Kahr CM9 in TT Gunleather holster.

I carry a Shield in 9mm. I'll probably get a P365 in the near future. Same size, shoots better and more capacity.

re: Shopping for a CC handgun- What is your go to and why?
I got a 48 for Christmas. I shoot it about as well as I do a 19 but it's a lot thinner. I like it. iwb carry with a sticky holster.

I have had a glock 42 for pocket carry for a while. I wanted a gun that would fit in a pocket holster but was still big enough that I'd enjoy shooting it and could actually hit something. The 42 is a really soft shooter

I have the Kahr CM9 and the CW380. Both are great. You just have to get used to the trigger because it's different. Doesn't take long though.

This is the most practical choice for where I live. It takes 2 seconds to put in your pocket along with your keys and wallet. It's there when you need it and requires little maintenance. I use a horsehide pocket holster and it is always with me regardless if I have another sidearm on me or not.

Hundreds of reloads and A few boxes of Hornady Critical Defense.

Mine does not have a safety. I carry it in a Black Point Tactical Holster.
