Anyone have any suggestions for a good CC handgun? I'm currently leaning towards a Sig p320 SC. It seems to be reliable and accurate. I think there may have been issues with light primer strikes when it first came out but it doesn't seem like the issue was widespread or anything. The p320 does seem to have a high bore axis but people don't seem to notice the difference when firing. I know there's many good options for single stack 9mm, but I think I'd prefer to go for a double stack for the extra ammo capacity. You do gain better concealment, but I'm thinking the Sig would conceal just fine. If I were to go the single stack rout I think I'd go ahead and get a Glock 43.
Main thing for concealed carry, is how do you like the gun. I like glocks a lot, but maybe you don't. My dad's buddy used a glock 17 for years, it was stolen & he decided to try a newer model, it was a glock 20 something, sorry I do not remember which model exactly, but slide would come back & tear the skin on his hand. So find a range that rents them or a buddy that has that gun & run some rounds through your choices. Does it feel good? Are you accurate? Do your pants hit the floor, lol? Does the gun make you want to shoot it? Also, ammo capacity is smart. Unless you are running several thousand rounds a month through the gun & practicing for high stress situations, when you first go to push that gun out in front of you, you are likely to miss your target. More rounds, more opportunity to strike. On another note, do not ask the salesman for his suggestions, he will either give you his personal carry choice or whatever gun he needs to move or will get the best commision off of. I had a saleman tell my wife that women should only carry revolvers. My wife is a better shot than I am & she can handle shooting a 1911 .45, she just does not like them.
