The 10 Best Concealed Carry Guns

Springfield XDs


The XDs line, now consisting of both a 9mm and 45ACP version (with rumors of a 40S&W in the works), has turned out to be a fantastic seller in the concealed carry world. Although they were in the spotlight under a massive recall, Springfield made good on their promise to fix the problem.

Smith & Wesson M&P Shield


The Shield is a scaled-down version of the popular M&P duty line, giving them a smaller profile for better concealment. Available in both 9mm and 40S&W, the Shield is a great option for both a primary firearm as well as a backup.

Ruger LC9


This pistol from Ruger is nothing too exciting, but it’s still a great option to carry. At less than an inch wide, it’s slim profile allows for pretty much any method of carry that you can think of.
