    CCW gun weight's

    I was wondering if people could put the weights of popular CCW weapons with full compliment of rounds and magazine. I am overseas and trying to decide which guns I can stand carrying all day. I plan on using water containers attached to my hip to simulate the weight.

    The main guns I would like to know are the Sig 239, H&K P200SK, Walther P99C and PPS.

    Any other guns that people would like to share would be awesome in helping me decide which gun I would like. I prefer a 9mm, but will consider everything.

    P.S. The desert is #$%&*&%% HOT

    Thanks in advance.

    Weight is not the only issue. A good belt and holster will make all the difference in the world.
    I can carry my HK p2000 all day with 2&1/2 inch Beltman belt in a Milt Sparks VMII IMHO its not the weight its the way and what you use to carry

    Well sixball I do agree. I plan on getting the smart carry holster and a OWB holster of some make. I am about 180lbs and 5'8" athletic build. I would like just to have an idea of how much weight I can comfortably carry. As far as a belt I have a thick riggers belt that I plan on wearing when i wear jeans.

    I carry a SA Micro-Compact 45, weighs just over 2lbs loaded, no problem with all day carry using a Wild Billís 1 Ĺ inch belt and Covert Carry IWB holster.

    Sig P239

    I have a Sig P239 in 9mm. According to the Sig website, the gun weighs 27.5 ounces empty. Assuming that 9 rounds of 9mm ammo weighs about 2 ounces, the gun would weigh about 29.5 ounces loaded. I find this a pretty comfortable load to carry with a good holster and belt.

    The .40 caliber/.357 Sig version of the P239 weighs about 2 ounces more, according to the website, because it has a slightly thicker slide.

    I believe that the P99c weighs about 18 ounces without magazine, and I can carry it all day in complete comfort, although I agree that a good gun belt and holster is a must.

    Glock 36 (slim .45 acp compact glock)- It's shaped almost identically to the Glocks 19 and 23 but slimmer. It's mag capacity is 6 rounds
    It's weight is 20.11 oz empty (1.256 lbs) and 26.99 oz loaded (1.686 lbs).

    Most typical 1911's with a 3" barrel have a width of 1.29 in, an empty weight of 25 oz and a mag capacity of 7 rounds.

    The above are IMO good choices if you'd consider a .45

    SA says my 1911 weighs 39oz (2.4lbs) empty and the mag is probably another 8 oz.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I've had experience carrying the SIG P239, but found it to be heavy to carry all day. I prefer the compact Glock 19 and 23, as well as my most recent purchase of the subcompact Glock 26.
