Medicalweed is an unknown quantity at this point
Exclamation What is the best CCW? Glock? S&W? Sig?

I currently have a DB9 for a daily conceal carry weapon. The reason i bought it was mainly the cost and the slim design of it. I am thinking on upgrading to a full size for the reason of a bigger mag. I'm been considering a Glock 19 gen 4 but was wondering what everyone else carries and if they would recommend a glock or something different. God bless

Concealed carry for me means mini 9mm(+extra mag). The gun fits in one pocket and mag in another. Double stack can't do that.


If pocket carry is not your preference then anything goes. Pick you favorite brand.

The coppers in many states in Oz use a Glock 22 as their service pistol AFAIK. They had revolvers before (probably some S&W) and had problems with it; jamming or something like that. After the Port Arthur massacre this all changed. I heard SA Police still use revolvers though I could be wrong on this.

Jim...Thomahawk is handy for me. You can chop, cut, flip it and hammer,,,
when all is said and done, wipe off and smoke from it. Conceals well from with feathers and a certain member of Senate from the lame state of Massachusetts .

I agree, model makes no difference if you aren't familiar with it.

+1 on that. You have to keep in mind that different handguns have different grip positions and control placement (safety, mag release, slide release) I shot competition for years with several 1911 platform handguns. When I joined an ERT squad, they tried to convert me to the Glock and I sucked. The point of aim was different and the controls were not instinctive for me, but I could out shoot all of them with a 1911, so they gave me a pass and let me carry my Combat Commander. The Springfield XD is a close second for me. You need to find what you can shoot well, in the caliber that you are comfortable with and the make/model you have confidence in. It is as personal as underwear, motorcycles and women.

I most often carry a Smith & Wesson 442 Airweight. Yesterday I had a new Glock 43 out to the range for the first time. I was also shooting a new Fusion Firearms Freedom series full size 1911 in 9mm. I was surprised that I shot the Glock better at the same distance. I think it is as accurate as a G17. Again whatever fits your hand and pocket

I'm a short-fk so so I go small and light, prefer single stack 9's like sig-225 or my CZ-Rami which is dbl stack but very compact. More often than not its a SW Airweight in pocket.. IF you have plenty of real estate to conceal then carry whatever you shoot best like the guys have said.
