    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I need help finding me a good concealable

    I have been looking at 40 and 380 calibers for a small concealable piece.

    The glock 23 and the malthus p99 are a couple that caught my eye as well as some 380 (wish I could remember which one) that I saw at a sporting goods place.

    I was wondering what kind of concealables y'all use and what sort of things someone should look for when shopping.

    Before I moved, I had a sig 239 that I loved. I am a big sig fan but the da takes a lot of skill maintenance. Cops I know like the SA XD and Glock 27's a lot. Sometimes snubbies work well also. Depends on your carry type, reasons for carry, body type, etc.

    Look at the Keltec P3AT and P11, Kahr 9 & 40 sub-comp., Skyy Industries CPX1, NAA Guardians, Seecamp .380, Cobra Enterprise Patriot series and .38 derringers, Beretta Tomcats, Taurus P22, P32, PT111, PT140, PT145, and Springfield Armory Croation made XD sub comp.. Really expensive but nice, HK sub-comp. You're in Texas so you can get any of these, unlike us Kalifornistanian that can't get **** LOL.

    Have a great Kenpo day

    Hi Clyde, have you seen the Geary kata clip on the Chris Geary thread yet? Is hilarious.

    And my apoligies for the derail, back to business. If you like nine mili short (380) nothing like a good old fashioned Colt Pony.

    My preferred conceal is a Kimber UDP II, very small print.

    Why don't you tell us what you are looking for exactly, where you will conceal, how many rounds, etc.

    I can carry conceal a 4" 1911, to something as small as a 3" XD .40 or my Kimber.

    If I can't carry IWB, I will use a S&W Airlite with pocket holster.

    I don't know exactly where on my body I want to carry. I would like to be able to carry it around all over town while I wear my t-shirt and baggy jeans... but that has not been properly thought out.

    The slimness of a compact 1911 really lends itself to CC.

    May I suggest a 4 or 4.25 inch variety which has a bobtail and generous dehorning. I shall be adding a bobtail to the 4.25 inch variety I have in the near future.

    Because, let's face it; any fool can take something resembling an existing design and make it meet and exceed harsh "combat conditions". Great. In the meantime while you're NOT worrying about whether you can chip frozen mud out of your weapon in time to blast off 500 failure-free rounds, there's a ton of fun to be had in having something which is accurate and nice to look at.

    I own a Glock 23 and I will never carry anything else. Not only is it compact and powerfull, but it is easy to use. You can carry a round in the chamber and not worry about misfires provided you use a proper holster. Since the safties are all located in the trigger and the action, there is no safety catch to flip off.

    As far as the .380 - I'd give it is miss. It's an underpowered round. Go with the .357 or the .40 - .45 if you can handle it. The Glock 23 can fire both .357 or .40 with a simple barrel change-out.

    My brother carries too, and he's a Kimber guy - but he's 6'1" and I'm 5'7" with teeny hands to match so the Glock just fits naturally. If you're a big dude you might like the Kimber series, but if you're closer to my size, I promise you'll prefer the Glock.

    Might want to give the caliber more thought, as suggested. .380 and .40 are two very different animals. 9mm (9x19) would open up a few more options between those sizes, like the new Rohrbaugh. That would be small--REALLY small--smaller than many .380's, but that extra millimeter makes a lot of difference in power.

    I don't carry concealed, so take my advice with a grain of salt.
