187 Best Handguns for Concealed Carry

     Across all fifty of these United States lie varying degrees of gun culture.  Whether people hunt, collect, build, target shoot or compete with their guns, the over-arching culture holds the firearms community together.  Recent SCOTUS decisions have re-affirmed our rights to self defense both within and outside of our homes, and with gun sales continuing to steadily climb, you may be thinking of purchasing your first handgun.

     From the federal government to the states and even down to individual towns and cities, there are laws and regulations on the books regarding your legal limits for carrying weapons.  All fifty states have laws regarding concealed carry (carrying a firearm or weapon on your person in a way that it is hidden from plain view), and though some states allow you to conceal a weapon without requiring a Concealed Carry Permit, the other states are very strict.  Learn the laws before you begin.

     One of the most common questions asked by prospective gun owners is, "Which gun should I get for concealed carry?"  We have all heard this question at gun stores and we've seen it asked on social media sites.  So, we put this list together for everyone to vote on which guns they think are best for everyday concealed carry.  Cast your votes on whether or not you would consider carrying each firearm.
