But which one should you get for your Concealed Carry? Do you go single stack or double stack, full size or compact? Hopefully, we can help you narrow down your decisions with this rundown of 10 of the best concealed carry handguns chambered in nine millimeters.
Walther PDP Compact
PDP might as well stand for Pretty Damn Perfect because Walther blew it out of the park with this gun. The PDP Compact features a four inch barrel, a width of 1.34 inches, and a magazine capacity of 15 rounds. The ergonomics of the PDP are awesome and the gun feels so good in the hand. Besides feeling good, the grip texture and slide serrations are aggressive and sticky; all controls are large and easy to engage, especially the slide lock. Walther also allows you to swap frames and slides to create numerous gun configurations – in most respects, Walther’s compact model blows the Glock away and is an awesome gun.
Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro
At its launch, the Springfield Armory Hellcat Micronine millimetre quickly established itself as a serious player in the concealed carry world. The team at Springfield has pushed forward the evolution of the Hellcat line yet again with their new Hellcat Pron model. The new 15+1 capacity Hellcat Pro offers shooters a version of the pistol that combines performance capabilities more in line with a much larger pistol but is still an extremely concealable form factor. The pistol comes out of its box measuring 6.6 inches in length, 4.8 Inches in height and just one inch wide – weight is just 21 ounces while its barrel measures 3.7 inches – well this is still what I would classify as a compact pistol but one that has performance capabilities more in line with what you’d expect from much larger pistols like its OSP optics ready capability and 15 round flush fitting magazine.
Running the Hellcat Pro at range is comfortable familiar experience but with distinct fresh take – everything ergonomically and control set wise remains identical to the Hellcat Micro compact Pistol – so if you loved your Hellcat chances are you’re going to enjoy this new pro model even more!
