THE 8 BEST CONCEALED CARRY GUNS ANYONE CAN BUY

By: Wesley Oaks | Gun Goals

Have you just gotten into firearms and are thinking about concealed carry? Or maybe you’ve been interested in firearms for a while but are looking to purchase another pistol to conceal carry? We’ve done the research and selected the 8 best concealed carry guns anyone can buy. While everyone has slightly different preferences for the gun they choose to conceal carry, most people can probably agree on this list we’ve compiled.

If you’re a smaller female and you want a smaller gun that’s easier to conceal, we’ve got you covered. But if you’re not worried about concealing a slightly larger gun and want one that’s easier for you to handle, we’ve got that too.

We’ve included 9mm and .45 pistols (the most common calibers for concealed carry) as well as one .380 pistol in case you’re looking for something a little bit smaller and one 40 S&W pistol in case you want an excellent magazine capacity without compromising in concealability. No matter if you prefer 9mm as most women do or a .45 as most men do, we have it all.

Depending on the features and characteristics you’re looking for, we’ve got them all and organized the list in terms of size, ranging from smaller pistols to larger pistols.

M&P BODYGUARD 380

  • Caliber: 380 Auto
  • Barrel Length: 2.75 inches
  • Height: 3.8 inches
  • Length: 5.33 inches
  • Weight: 14 ounces (loaded)
  • Magazine Capacity: 6+1
  • Price: $379

Why It’s Cool: At such a small size, the M&P Bodyguard 380 is very concealable and ideal for a smaller individual or someone who doesn’t want a very heavy gun.

If you’re looking for a very small concealed carry pistol, the M&P Bodyguard 380 could be a great option for you. Even when it’s loaded, it weighs less than a pound! Although the capacity can’t compare with a larger gun, it still has a 6+1 capacity.

Because it is so small and lightweight, it’s easy to conceal. Depending on the user, it might be more difficult to operate. Its small size makes it a bit challenging and finicky to fire. But some individuals like smaller females may prefer that it is easier to conceal because .380 ammo still can get the job done, especially given shot placement. .380 ammo is just one step down from 9mm (see this helpful handgun caliber guide), and a smaller round has less recoil, which theoretically means you can shoot more accurately and hit the target more.

Even if you’re not a smaller female, the Bodyguard 380 still could be a great option for you in the hot, sweaty summer months when you don’t want to be dragging around a much heavier gun. Some men also like the Bodyguard as a back-up gun.

As is no surprise given that it is a smaller firearm, the size of the grip can take some time to get used to; there isn’t much room for your hand! Additionally, the Bodyguard has a Double Action Only (DAO) trigger, meaning that it is a long trigger pull. Given this fact, it really isn’t designed for far-away target shooting, as the larger trigger pull can cause you to move the gun while firing, which isn’t a big deal a couple feet away, but would be a miss at 25 feet.

Given its lower cost, decent features, and ease in concealing with almost any attire, the Bodyguard is a great option for those who haven’t carried before or those who want a back up gun or something lighter for the summer.

Gunshots and Chirping Crickets

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

Not sure when this advertisement appeared, but the shotgun in the painting appears to be a Winchester Model 1897 pump-action shotgun. 1897 denoting the year it was introduced.

Recall that after the Parkland school shooting in February we were inundated with a media blitz for more gun control by all the usual suspects – the gun control groups (and their behind-the-curtain backers), Democrat politicians, Progressive groups that have allied into a symbiotic relationship to publicly advocate for each others’ pet agendas … and a new AstroTurf poster-child for the movement, David Hogg.  For weeks afterward one could not turn on a TV without seeing Mr. Hogg and playing his scripted righteous victim shtick, and the scripted marches and school walkouts (mostly) intended to provide video for the collaborating media.

On May 15, 2018 in The Corporate Campaign Against Our Second Amendment this author explained how it was all “classic” community organizer and union organizing tactics were being deployed to (ultimately) rip our Second Amendment rights away from us.

Then, on June 28, 2018 there was a mass shooting at in the newsroom of the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, MD.  It received widespread media coverage for a couple of days – there was no avoiding covering it to some degree – but then largely dropped off the radar.  David Hoog appears to have been confined to his daycare center.  All of which begs the question: “where were the usual suspects; why weren’t they pursuing their media jihad against our Second Amendment this time?”

It’s not as simple as just the fact that Parkland involved students in a school, and this involved adults at a newspaper (which presumably, in accord with Progressive enlightenment, was declared a gun-free zone by management).  No, the explanation lies elsewhere; that is, it didn’t advance their short and intermediate term agenda.

It doesn’t require extraordinary insight to recognize that had the Annapolis shooter had been wearing a “MAGA” hat, we would have been drowned in a tsunami of media coverage, for weeks, regarding the violent and neo-fascist inclinations set loose by the Trump administration.  Oh, and how the “Fascists” were targeting Progressive journalists whose noble purpose in life was to share the truth with the American public.

Neither does in require extraordinary insight to recognize that had the Annapolis shooter used a semi-automatic, AR-style rifle, we’d have likewise been (again) inundated with calls for an “assault weapons ban” and ban on “high capacity” magazines.

Yes, but … but … this shooter used a pump-action shotgun.  Not a semi- automatic.  Not an AR-style “assault rifle.”  Rather, a classic “they’ve been around forever” firearm – one that is favored by many for home defense, and is commonly used for bird hunting. And, once upon a time, for the beneficial purpose of “shotgun weddings.”

From an NPR story and bearing the caption: “A man and a boy out hunting with shotguns, circa 1955.”

So we had gun shots in Annapolis, quickly followed by the “advocate” and media equivalent of “chirping crickets.” Yet the people were still as dead; if the goal was really about “making us safer” and “saving lives” should not the calls for more gun control been as strident and voluminous?  Yes, if that was the actual goal.  But it’s not.

For the Progressives, this shooting occurred a little too soon.

You see, ultimately they want to ban private possession of all firearms.  But the Left has long mastered the “boiling frog” strategy of incrementally advancing its agenda.  Had Annapolis occurred afterthey’d achieved their “assault weapons” ban, we’d have been subjected to a post-Parkland like advocate and media frenzy.  In fact, you can bet that they’re counting on post-“assault weapons” ban shootings occurring, to provide them the pretense of expanding the bans to ever-wider classes of firearms.  All in the name of safety and saving lives, of course.

Progressives have the best interests of the “bitter clingers” and “deplorables” at heart; we’re just too ignorant to recognize their superior wisdom and embrace their enlightened agenda. As for me, I plan on continuing to take heed of the historical lessons of Progressivism’s father Collectivism and its repeated record of tyranny and mass murder – and so to continue to embrace the enlightenment of our Founding Fathers; and to cling not bitterly, but passionately to my Second Amendment rights!

GRAND FINALE FOR THIS POST: Trigger alert for Progressives – this image contains captions of “Miss Rheingold” of 1945 and 1957 – with firearms! Promoting beer! ATF without the “T” … ahhh, the good old days.
