Best CC Pistol

I'm having a tough time deciding what I want to buy me to carry. I'm leaning toward a small 1911 with a 3 inch barrel in .45 or a smith and wesson .357 mag revolver small revolver. What I have came down to is the 1911 is larger, weighs more, but has 3 safeties. The .357 weighs 13 ounces and would have recoil from he!!. Out of a 1911 or a revolver, which will be a safer and more pleasant carry?

Out of the two, I'd go with this one Product: Model M&P360

After you start carrying, you will appreciate the smaller guns. My Dad just got that gun, and I liked it, it does have some decent recoil, but the weight and 357 caliber makes up for that

Ok that was the exact one I was looking at. The 1911 was the Kimber ultra carry.

Get what you can shoot the best in crisis situations and feels best in your hand and is most comfortable to carry.

Everyone will give their opinions, but this is the most honest way to answer your question.

Try several at the range and try several in the concealment mode.

Good luck.

My opinion is a small frame .45 cal. semi auto, but revolvers work well also.

Ok. I have shot my dads full size 1911 and it shoots good and seems to be more manageable to shoot than the snubby 38 special. The gun show is coming to town this weekend and I might end up with one of both so I am always prepared.

It has to feel good in your hands, and you don't want to be afraid of it. Some time at the range should cure that. I carry two different guns, depending on what I'm wearing/doing. Glock 30SF 45cal, or a snubby .38

I just purchased the walther pps .40 and its very comfortable to carry and even sit down with. I don't even use a holster. Fits really nice in the pants on the side where your hip bends. People can't see it at all. Very smooth action. Nice gun for the money. My only complaint is the trigger travel seems a little much and there really is no safety. Maybe the trigger travel is the safety. I just don't have it chambered unless i'm going to fire it. I used to carry a S&W 357 mag j frame with semi concealed hammer and That was a nice CC for a revolver. Only 5 shot though.
