4. Ruger’s LC9s
The overall size of this sub-compact pistol is six inches with a barrel of only 3.1 inches, making it a good pocket carry a handgun for your arsenal. The Ruger LC is also one of the safest guns on this list, with a trigger safety and a manual thumb safety that needs disengaging before use.
Generally speaking, I’m not a fan of having a manual safety on my concealed carry gun. Handguns are meant to be pulled out and shot at a moment’s notice.
However, if you carry in your pocket or pocket holsters, it’s a good idea. Almost surprisingly, its capacity is 7+1, holding more pistol cartridges than some of the .380 caliber guns, making it a good addition to our list.
Finally, as with all the pistols on this list, it has a good set of sights present along with a crisp, short trigger pull. It’s a semi-automatic handgun with recoil that’s actually pretty manageable despite its size.
The small form factor of the gun makes it easier for you to fit it in one of your more subtle holsters. When it comes to concealed carry firearms, you can’t go wrong with the Ruger LC series.
