Hello everyone, I am new to this forum!
In a couple of weeks I will be taking a concealed carry class and I am going to purchase a ccw. I am not made of money and can only afford one gun at this time!
I am 6ft tall and weigh 220#
MY BIG QUESTION IS WHAT SIZE SEMI-AUTO HAND GUN SHOULD I GET???
Full size, compact, or sub-compact???? Double stack or single stack????
I have never carried a concealed hand gun ever!
I think I would like to carry a full size semi-auto IWB such as a glock 17 or M&P 9 .........for sight radius and magizine capacity! My big concern is how comfortable is this???? Does anyone carry full size guns IWS for 10 to 12 hours a day????
I understand that if a gun is not comfortable to wear and conceal you might not carry it with you all the time! My goal will be to try and have a lifestyle change and began to carry a concealed hand-gun everywhere the law allows me to!
I do not have the money to buy several different size guns and try them all to see what one I like best.
I also realize the concealed hoslter and belt is Extremly important for comfort and carry!
I know there are people on this board who have already been through different guns, sizes, cc holsters and $$$
I would really appreciate any feed back and information from people who have been carrying concealed handguns for years and have already got it figured out as far as size of gun and what type/brand of holster!
I just want to carry as large of a gun as I can comfortably can........mouse guns and pocket pistols do not really interest me as a primary ccw. However I am scared if I by a full size double stack 9mm such as a glock 17 or M&P that I will not be able to carry it comfortably and will print the weapon to the public!
As of right now I am looking at glock 17 or 19........or American Made S&W full size M&P 9 or 9c
maybe the M&P shiled is what I need???
I look forward to yall's recommendations!
