Which Concealed Carry Guns Are the Most Popular Right Now?
July 24, 20202 min read
We love learning from you and sharing that information with other gun owners, so we recently asked people about their favorite carry gun on our social media pages.
We received an overwhelming response (thank you!), so we've decided to share what new and seasoned gun owners had to say about their favorite gun for carrying concealed. Here are their answers, starting with the most popular:
1. SIG SAUER
Not surprisingly, concealed carry guns made by SIG were overwhelmingly the most popular. The P365 was at the top of the list, followed by the P238, P320, and then the P938.
Glock came in a very close second, with only a few votes separating them from SIG. The Glock 43 (including the 43x) got the most votes, followed by the Glock 21. The Glock 48 and 42 both received a few votes.
3. Smith & Wesson
Smith & Wesson carry guns were mentioned slightly less often than the first two manufacturers. The S&W Shield got the most votes, which includes the increasingly popular EZ (9mm and .380). There were a few votes for revolvers, and Smith & Wesson dominated the responses in that category.
4. Springfield Armory
Springfield Armory has recently upped their concealed carry guns game, and it shows in our results. Coming in strong was their new Hellcat, followed by a few votes for the EMP 9mm. Surprisingly, there were no votes for their XD models.
Falling out of favor with concealed carriers, but still in the mix was the LCP (both 9mm and .380). The LCR revolver was mentioned just a few times.
Kimber had a small showing but did (just barely) make the list. Their 1911's came in first, followed by the Micro 9.
Taurus has recently made a commitment to improving their quality, and a few of their concealed carry gun models have been gaining traction as a response. The most popular Taurus was the G2 series followed by the P19T11.

If you’ve ever fired your gun and you heard a "pop" instead of a "bang", it was probably a squib. A squib can be dangerous to both you and those around you, so it's not something you can ignore. Here's how to recognize and reduce the dangers of them.
