Concealed Carry Gun

Concealed Carry Small Guns

Small guns have been a trend for some time – popular for gun shops to sell and people to concealed carry. One of the big advantages is that they are easily concealable, but don’t be fooled as small guns have some drawbacks. First, small guns are hard to operate. Many people have a hard time locking the slide back on their small guns. Remember part of picking a good gun for concealed carry is that you can easily operate the controls. Keeping your hand away from the muzzle is another problem. When you operate the slide either to load or to clear a malfunction, remember not to put any part of your hand over the muzzle or you could possibly be missing a finger or get an extra hole in your hand. Many people who think they can not handle or conceal a mid to full size gun are kidding themselves.  Many of these small guns are hard to operate safely even by the best gun handlers. The other criteria for making a good choice in picking a handgun is that you can put shots on target when necessary. I don’t know about you, but these little guns are not easy to shoot. The sight radius is short and many times the sights themselves are non-existent. The one last thing I will say about small guns is they are tempting to put in your pocket or purse naked (no holster). Bad idea!!!! All guns need to have the trigger guard and trigger protected.  It is very unsafe not to do so. Pocket holsters have come a long way and will allow you to carry your hideaway safely and keep you finger off the trigger until ready to fire. All in all, little concealed carry guns are at best hard to operate, hard to accurately shoot, and easy to hide.

  1. You make some valid points about smaller firearms designed for concealed carry, especially regarding the use of a holster. That should be a no-brainer as far as safety is concerned. but I think the key to effective and safe concealed carry is training and more training. As with anything else, it’s not going to get done right without practice and when you are potentially dealing with deadly force, it becomes imperative.
