Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

The Perfect CCW Weapon?

Having owned a gun store for almost 15 years now, I'm amazed to see customers who constantly switch handguns looking for the "perfect" CCW weapon. I had a customer just recently come into my shop and trade in the last handgun he purchased from me about 3 months ago. This was about the 15th pistol that he traded in. As we started talking about various new handgun models, it became apparent that he was looking for that perfect blend of caliber, size, and mechanics for a concealed carry weapon. The truth is, I don't think a "perfect" CCW weapon exists. Each shooter has different preferences as to what they are looking for.

Smaller pistols generally tend to be easier to conceal, but they offer less firepower and can be more difficult to shoot for people with large hands. My suggestion is to find a handgun model that meets your personal needs in terms of caliber, size, and shootability. Come up with a conceled carry method that works for you and then stick with it. I've been carrying a Glock 26 for years as my primary CCW weapon. It meets all my needs and I can shoot it fairly well. Enough said.
