    Hello from Kentucky

    Hello all , jcolem55 here from Kentucky . I recently received my CCDW permit and saw this forum as I was searching around for different concealed carry related information. Thought I would join so I could meet people with the same interests and learn about different firearms and holsters and carry methods . I currently only have one pistol that I can carry concealed and that is my Bulgarian made Circle 10 Makarov . I absolutely love this pistol , it's super accurate and reliable . Wellmade and easy to maintain too. The only gripe is it is a little heavy being all steel . I'm looking at getting one of the new polymer framed single stacks such as the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield or the Walther PPS in 9mm . Any insight on these would appreciated .

    Welcome from Alabama.

    I think either of the guns you named would be good carry guns. Also look at others like the Ruger LC9, it's a nice lightweight pistol also.

    Likely best of the bunch you mentioned, IMO, of course.

    Welcome! They're mighty nice to Kentuckians 'round heah' so make yourself at home. BTW, the Shield isn't a single column, it's thin, yet the mag ammo is staggered. As for opinions, between those 2 choices it's (IMHO) purely subjective. Pick the one that best matches-up with...YOU!
