    carry gun for woman

    Im looking for another carry option. Currently, I have an Ruger LCR .38...but am looking for something else. Im not terribly fond of the LCP or bodyguard....the LCP's trigger pull is too long,and honestly just prefer something larger. I really like the M&P Shield(honestly my first choice,but unsure of availability since recall), and the Glock 19,but don't want to rule out other options like the M&P 9c, Ruger SR9c, and maybe the Glock 26. Would the Ruger LC9 have a long trigger pull like the LCP?

    Ill be carrying this gun in a bag designed for concealed carry.

    Any input is appreciated!

    Since your mentioning Rugers SR9C or SR9. My wife prefers the SR9 as her EDC.

    The LC9 has a long trigger pull but its not nearly as stiff as the LCP

    Welcome to the forums.

    Personally I hate purse carry. I know that I can get to my gun when it is on my body! But you need to do what is right for yourself. I mostly carry my Glock 26 but used to carry other things. I use Pearce grip extenders on my G26 which makes it a very good fit for my hands. Prior to this I carried a G 19 and before that carried a S&W 686 - which is a challenge for body carry unless it is winter and you are wearing really big sweat shirts.

    Lots of helpful folks here. They may ask you questions to help narrow the answers to things that are most appropriate for you.

    thanks guys...and granny ;) i dont prefer purse carry either...its just hard where i work(my concern is walking to and from). There are no restrictions, and i have a locked drawer that no one can access, and we normally walk out together(all ladies).i would just prefer they not concern their selves with why i have to "excuse myself" (to equip holster,etc,etc)

    Greetings from Richmond/Rosenberg, TX

    I love my SR40C. Try one out, the slides on the SR9's & 40's are somewhat tight. in time they loosen, but if you can't charge the slide it really defeats the purpose.

    I know you mentioned the bodyguard. My EDC is the .38 revolver bodyguard and I'm happy-happy-happy. Just get whatever makes you happy.

    Look at the Kahr P9/CW9... the trigger is among the best you'll find in striker-fired guns.

    There's a few really good guns in each size class that have proven to be reliable.

    Tiny
    LCP w/ Hogue Handall (New LCPs have a much improved trigger, and slightly better sights)
    P238

    Small
    LCR
    442
    642

    Small and heavy
    Shield
    PPS


    Subcompact
    M&P9c
    G26

    You can't really go wrong with anything on that list. Kel Tec, Taurus, Bersa and Kahr offer some interesting options (PF9, PT709, BP9cc, and CW9), but for me they aren't brands I'd trust my life to.

    Depending on how big your purse is, and how much junk you're already lugging around; I wouldn't recommend going bigger than a subcom as it's going to feel like you're lugging a brick with straps digging into your shoulder all day.

    That's for sure! One time I felt I had to carry in my purse and was taking my father to the doctor. He was in a wheelchair so I plopped my purse in his lap while I was wheeling him out to the car. His comment: "What do you have in here - a ton of lead?"

    My answer: "not quite"...........

    Ruger LCR .38is a fine weapon....A Glock 26 is a good choice for a conceal carry 9mm... a G26 or a G19 is my next pistol purchase...
