Top Selling Handguns | August 2017 Best in the Market
Over the years, gun manufacturers have been competing with each other to create the best firearm that caters to every shooter’s needs. There are names that remain at the top for decades, and there are ambitious newcomers in the industry trying to surpass the household names. As much as gun fans would like to stay loyal to a specific brand, the competition has become too close in terms of overall quality, performance, and cost. Gun sales can provide a lot of information in this regard, so, without further ado, here are the top selling handguns for this month:
1. Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield
The Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield is a lightweight pistol and weighs in at around 20 oz. This handgun is a simple strip down machine with no fancy features. The Shield’s low profile and slender size are great for everyday carry and perfect for concealment as well.
2. Ruger LCP
This handgun has a small frame and is lightweight at only 9.6 ounces. The slide and barrel are made of alloy steel chambered in .380 ACP. The Ruger LCP has been one of the most reliable concealed handguns for many years. As a matter of fact, Ruger firearms offer some of the best handguns in the gun market today.
3. Kimber K6s Stainless
A small revolver with a cylinder capacity of six rounds, this baby shoots .357 magnum. This Kimber K6s has some real serious firepower for a handgun with just a 2-inch barrel length. It looks tiny, but it’s certainly bad news for people with bad intentions.
4. Glock 19
The Glock 19 is hard to beat as a defensive and tactical pistol. Any forum on the best handguns will almost certainly mention Glock firearms. It has superb ergonomics and is extremely reliable. These reasons justify it as the primary handgun for law enforcers worldwide.
5. KEL-TEC PMR-30
The KEL-TEC PMR-30 has the least power among the handguns on this list. It loads .22 caliber ammunition but has a standard magazine capacity of 30 rounds. This firearm is a useful practice pistol for learning shooters since it mimics a full-size handgun.

I STILL love my Glock 43 for cc. Reliable. My Ruger GP 100 (4″ barrel, Cherrywood custom grip) is always dependable. Doesn’t jam and will stop whatever is in it’s path. Accurate at a distance as well. Yes, they are only 6 shots with these sidearms, but I see it this way; should I need more than 6 bullets, I’m in the wrong area of town. But, I always have an extra clip for my Glock and a speed load for my Ruger, just in case.
Trust me, a) you don’t need to be in any particular area of town to find yourself facing a situation where 6 bullets are not optima, and b) we sometimes do indeed find ourselves in the wrong part of town for a wide range of reasons. Not to say a G43 or revolver is a poor choice, just saying that you need to beware of a mindset that lulls you into a complacency that 6 bullets are enough. Trust me, I can tell you from personal experience that mag changes while being shot at are difficult and fraught with opportunities for everything to go sideways very quickly.
I carry an extra clip on me. Also, I don’t miss. When the 1st person drops, how brave do you think the rest will be? You overestimate the courage of criminals. Drop 1 or 2 and the rest will be not to thrilled to continue to engage. And sorry, but I stay away from bad neighborhoods. 21 years as a civilian and I have managed quite well. Retired 10th SFG . I am used to combat situations. I don’t get rattled. I am well focused, well disciplined.
