gun newbie looking for conceal carry options.

  1. Take the NRA pistol course - there are two, and I'd suggest the extended version that includes actual shooting - before you do another thing.

    Try out the Glock 23 also. It's basically the same gun as the 19, only it's chambered in .40 S&W instead of 9mm Luger.

    Another big guy here. I usually carry a 1911A year round, and don't have any problems with carrying it. Sometimes I carry a small .38 in my pocket as a BUG (back up gun), but when in light shorts I carry the NAA in .22 Mag. Like you I'm not much of a Glock fan, but the guns do work well. I just like what I grew up with; what I'm used to. Take a closer look at the NAA in .22 Mag.

    If you carry a large enough primary with a few reloads, you don't have a need for a backup...jmho

    or Bersa t-9 UC Pro 10 or 13 round mag.
    Both are great CC guns.

    Would recommend at least a .380 and personally carry the Ruger LCP.

    Either a Beretta Tomcat .32 acp for pocket or a Bersa Thunder .380 using a IWB holster.

    some have a phobia concerning carrying a 1911 cocked and locked. if the OP does then the Springfield Armory EMP is not what he's looking for. It's easy to conceal, accurate, and very dependable. I have no problem carrying in condition 1.
