Opinions Needed On A CCW

2737 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Chaco1
I am a 43yr old guy 5ft 11in, 190lbs. Good shape & health. I have 3 choices in a handgun for self-defense and conceal carry. I have shot all 3 at the range with mutual feelings towards all 3. I would like to get some opinions on choice for ccw.

(1.) Bersa T380 (2.) Taurus 357 M650 CIA (3.) Taurus 9mm PT111 Millinium

Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

380, 9mm OK but 40 S&w /45 Better for low round count compact guns.

It' like hunting calibers do you want to wound them or put them down?

Glock or XD are better choice.

Some GREAT information taken right out of their course curriculum that was previously only taught when you attended their courses!

For a .380 Id go with the Kel Tec P3-At. For Taurus I'd go with the Millenium Pro in .40. Not a big fan of the 9mm. I have a CIA .357 and it really is a heavy gun for it's size there are some better options out there. I have not had the opportunity to shoot the XD but really would like to try one. The Glock I have shot I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with. ALso ask yourself how will you carry and what clothes will you be wearing. Hard to carry a big 1911 in the summer in shorts and a t-shirt.
