Good overall handgun

looking to get my first ccw and wanting to see what you guys think would be a good first pistol. looking for something like a 1911 but without the 1000+ price tag would like to stick to a clip load over a revolver. I'd like something bigger than a .22 preferably. what do you guys think?

Sig p238 is my cc gun currently. I have carried XD45 in the past. And plan on carrying a xds45 here shortly.

The entire XD line from Springfield Armory are amazing guns in the $4-700 price range. I have put 1500 rounds (on my second barrel) through the XD45 without a single jam!

I would suggest a 9mm as a first handgun/cc.

glock 19 in 9mm.

small frame and barrel and doesn't leave an imprint at all. i forget the IWB "in the waste band" holster i used i think minotaur or something.

the xd and xdm series pistols are not bad but i traded back to a glock after a few months.

you could look for a colt custom carry its like a 4in barrel but they're pricey.

glock, springfield, kahr, are good brands i use. even my 1911 is a springfield modded mil spec shes a tack-driver now!

SW MP40

When I have the dough, Im getting one. Big round in a small package (40 sw). Get some critical defense loads or some xtps. The critical defense literally blow pumpkins apart.

Glock 32 comes in 357 sig. Great round as well for cc. 22 is a good round, and cheap. 9mm, 40sw, 357 sig, and 45 are the rounds I would stick with. 38s don't offer enough oomph.

38s? Are you saying .380? A .380 has plenty more "ooomph" then a .22

No, he's referring to a 38..like 38 special. Those are good guns if you can use the +p ammo.

I carry this Glock 27 (40) sub-compact everywhere I go....sits in the cargo holder in the door, or in the diaper bag. Also has the LaserMax internal.

I use and trust my Glock 23 everyday. Easily concealable and has good stopping power with its 40 cal. Easy to conceal, easy to use, EASY to clean.

I see guys getting shot up with .22s on the regular. NO stopping power whatsoever. The ones getting shot are easily able to make it to the hospital on their own.
