Buy a concealed carry gun you can actually conceal and you will really carry

If you are looking for a gun to carry concealed, bigger is not always better. Lots of people start out looking at a small gun that fits in their pocket, and also easily in their waist band.Then they look at one that's a little bigger, shoots a little bigger bullets, and its a little heavier and easier to shoot. They want that gun instead of the little one.
But then they see a huge gun that shoots even more bullets and has a long barrel so it is very accurate. Now they HAVE to have that gun. So they end up with a full sized pistol that they can't carry concealed anywhere because its obvious, and its also uncomfortable. So, they never carry it.
They should have bought the little gun that they would have comfortably carried every day. They could have practiced with the little gun, and become deadly with it, and they would ALWAYS be armed... instead of having a great elephant hunting pistol at home when they're not.
The smaller and lighter the frame of the gun, the easier it is to conceal and the more comfortable it is to carry. However, smaller guns can't carry as many rounds, and they are harder to shoot accurately because you have less grip surface on them and their reduced weight makes them jump around more in your hand. Add size and weight, and you add the ability to carry more rounds in one magazine, and the gun will be easier to shoot accurately.
You have to find the right mix for you. Just make sure it is a gun that you will carry with you wherever you go. Just like your wallet, your keys, you cell phone...your gun and your knife should be part of your mental checklist before leaving the house. If you take on the responsibility to be a sheepdog, its 24/7 and you have to be equipped to handle anything.
