I'm getting the itch again to add another conceal carry size handgun to my stable. Right now I usually carry my Walther P99c the most. I have a CZ P07 and am considering getting an IWB holster for it, but I'd like to hear from everyone as to what you typically carry. I've looked at the Taurus G2c, since it get's a lot of praise, and I've also looked at the Ruger LC9s. But I'm sure there's a lot more options out there that I haven't considered. Nothing wrong with my Walther P99c, and I shoot it very well. But once in awhile I get that itch, that I'm sure most of you can relate with. Anyway, just looking at other options before I decide which route I want to go. Thanks.

Most of the time- a Bersa Thunder 380 Plus.
-some times- a Kahr CW9 ( now have a Walther PPS that will probably work into the pile.
-sometimes the C-100.
Now that cooler weather is here and I have some decent holsters- will give the Elite and DA some duty?

Typical carry is my .38 Special Ruger LCR, loaded with Winchester PDX1 +p, pocket carry in a formed leather pocket holster I made myself. Has the Hogue boot grip installed. In my relaxed fit jeans, it pocket carries very well, with minimal printing.

In cooler weather where I can layer and wear a jacket, I'll sometime carry my .45 ACP M&P Shield. Not as big of a fan of the Shield as I thought I would be though, in large part due to the poor customer service I received after having to send the gun back with only 10 rounds fired. Carries well though, OWB in an R&R kydex holster.

I purchased a Taurus G2C last fall when Academy had them on sale for $199. I haven't gotten to take the gun to a range yet to break it in though, so haven't added it to my carry rotation. I have fine tuned the trigger safety as mine had the catch that's been so commonly reported. I really like the size, and the double stack grip fits my hand very comfortably. Carrying around the house some in a leather Avenger-style holster I built, carries very easily. One mod done that I really like: I used a belt sander to turn one of the pinkie extension baseplates into a flush baseplate. Makes it just a bit more compact for the OWB carry.

I've also carried a Kel Tec PF9; I like the gun, but typically don't carry because it's so succeptible to limp wristing. For around the house or on the few occasions I carry a BUG, I have an LCP I purchased during the Great 380 Drought, it was a lucky find at an Academy here. It gets some pocket carry time, but I'd rather carry the five rounds of heavier, non-jamable 38 than the six rounds of lighter 380.

As I've posted about here, I really wish I could afford the Walther PPQ SC, for use as a new CC weapon. Unfortunately, finances are not good at the moment and don't seem like they will improve any time soon. My goal is to move away from the DAO carry options to something that would allow me to quickly and accurately get multiple rounds on a target with confidence. I've considered the PPS M2, as it's the most comfortable single stack I've handled, but a double stack still fits my hand better.

That TPR9C looks like a cosmetic-only upgrade of the Thunder 9C. I have the original Thunder 9, and it is an awesome handgun. Easiest takedown I've ever seen, better trigger than my Canik, accurate, and reliable. To date, I have experience ZERO failures. That even includes my attempts to make the gun to fail, including shooting with the weakest grip I could use to keep from dropping the gun. Cycles and fires EVERY time.

Thanks for the info. I've been looking at them for awhile. I like the fact the decocker is ambi since I'm a lefty.

I had the Bersa Thunder 9UC (fore runner to the TPR9). It was an excellent shooter- I carried it a lot. But......for a compact concealed carry gun it was a little wide and heavy. Still have the full size 9HC version, also an excellent shooter.

XDs, clip on AIWB, usually gets home duty. The Elite gets weekend and field trip duty.

My darling wife has been practice carrying the XDs around the house. She's not quite comfortable carrying it loaded or out of the house, yet. Once she makes the leap, it's a toss up if she'll keep the XDs or find something else. So, the hunt is on for either a single stack for small hands or another compact carry. She may even step down to a .380.
