    No Sig 938? Definitely better than the Taurus.

    • Pigface

      Ummmm p938????

      • Fritz609

        938 is a single stack 9mm. You are referring to p238.

    • Sig

      Title was single stack 9mm not 380

      • Sianmink

        You know the 938 is a single stack 9mm, right?

  • Massolo

    I’ll stick with my Nano. Insanely small and deadly accurate.

  • Q

    Bersa bp9cc is as good as if not better than some of the weapons listed.

  • Joshua Sparks

    Really love the M&P Shield with no safety. I trust my life to that gun every day.

  • Ron Hatfield Jr

    KelTec Pf9 for my best CCW..

  • Motojg

    I own a berreta nano, Glock 26 and a sig p290rs… The sig is by far my favorite as far as a conceal carry.

  • dskofstad

    Left out Betetta Nano. But me? I’m a double stack guy. M&P 9c. You never know how many bad guys there’s gonna be. More rounds on board.

    • Danny Reed

      I have 3 M&P’s, a 9c, 40c, and 40 full size. Love the Smith and Wesson M&P!
      However, when I want to conceal carry in the summer months, I go for my Ruger LC9s. Otherwise, it’s my M&P 40 full size or my Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm (which is way underrated in my opinion, the PX4 is a fantastic weapon and the 9mm has 17+1 capacity)

      • dskofstad

        M&P9 full size is also 17+1. Just to keep it in the family. Love Beretta though. 92FS was my first handgun.

    • Jim Screws

      I’m with you. I carry either a Glock or a Sig, winter and summer.

      When was the last time you shot more than 1 person.. as a matter of fact, when was the last time you shot ONE person.. Dont be so afraid.

      • Mark Huch

        So Funny, So True. Don’t discount the need for extra ammo to take out black helos

        RU FN KIDDING ME??? I was at a gas station outside chicago at 2 am trying to get home from a wedding. 4 guys surrounded me at the pump. I ran around the pump full speed, ran towards the store, turned around and pulled 2 handguns. I had one in each hand and pointed them right at them. I screamed, “It ain’t worth it boys. Don’t do it! Get the F out of here! They walked off cussing me out. I called 911 and made a report and then left. So, yeah, the more the better boys. Trust me. oh btw- one was 16rd S&W and the other was a 10rd Glock 33. 26 shots ready to go…24/7.
        of course, being former military LE I tend to carry more than I ever need…you should too. always.

        • TruNYC

          so one out of a 100,000. and you were former Military and LE.. I think that proves my argument.. But glad you were able to come out of it..

      Once a Boy Scout always a Boy Scout, be prepared!
      Springfield Armory XDM 9mm 19+1.

      • Dustin

        Glock 17 9mm with oem Glock 33 rd mag

        • BSORaiderErie

          That’s impressive! I saw a Kel Tec PMR that holds 30 .22 magnum but it was costly for a Kel Tec.
          Have a good day!
          God Bless the USA and Springfield Armory!

  • Tboltdon

    My Kahr P 380 goes with me 24/7. Don’t leave home without it.

    • Sig

      Title was single stack 9mm not 380, right?

  • vic ferida

    S&W 3913. Still the best after 20+ years.

  • Tim Elliott

    Does Walther make a single stack 9mm?

  • Ron Stewart

    Why a video? I want to read an article, not a reposted video -_-

  • Bill

    Mr Firearm. I heard you say you love your cm9. I have a Pm 9 that I love to shoot and carry but have intirely too many FTF ususually 3-4 shot. Hate to get rid of it but have owned glocks for long time. last week took a friends g43 and my PM9 to the range with 6 different brands of 9mm. the Glock ate up everything but my Kahr had problems with 3 of the 6. The funny thing is that I had no problems with Kahr during the 200 rd BE period. Seems to be worse after shooting 30-40 rds. I have ptrobably shot 1200-1300 rds through the PM about 2 yrs old. On the verge of trading for a g43. convence me I shouldn’t ?
