Concealed carry is a practical matter. Choosing a pistol for everyday carry means you need to be comfortable carrying and shooting the pistol. Subcompact pistols are easy to carry in both warm or cold climates, no matter what you are wearing. A step up is compact pistols and revolvers. These are typically easier to shoot and manipulate for the simple fact that they are larger. Being larger means it also takes a bit more to conceal these pistols. Concealing garments like shirts, vests and coats help.
Finding a practical CCW pistol also means finding a practical caliber. The most popular calibers for pistols are the .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. In a revolver it is .38 Special and .357 Magnum. All of these calibers are proven defense loads. The best advice is to fire as many different calibers as you can in as many different platforms as you can. This will help you decide on the perfect pistol that fits your hand and offers comfortable felt recoil while allowing you to shoot accurately. Remember, you want to choose a pistol that you will carry with you as easily your cell phone and car keys.
Finally, your budget will have a say in your final choice as well. Above is a gallery of proven and popular concealed carry handguns to help you take control of your personal defense.
