3 Great Concealed Carry Guns for Women

concealed carry guns for women

We've talked about this many times – men and women are different. That's pretty obvious. So why not make a distinction between concealed carry guns for women and men?

You have to consider body shape, differences in upper body strength and clothing styles when thinking about selecting a CCW.

We found a good video from Range Time TS that list 3 great guns that women should consider for themselves. It also  gives some good tips for how to carry too.

  1. There is no such thing as a womans gun. There is only hand size. I hate more than anything when a woman comes into my class with a gun that their husband bought them saying this is a womans gun and it doesn’t fit them. No one can tell you the right gun for you. Only your handsize matters not your gender. Once you determine what guns fit you then worry about weeding out the ones with too tight slides, features you don’t want etc. The company I work for has spent decades trying to educate the public on this and yet it is still perpetuated. It is amazing when a woman brings a gun the wrong size to class one and does poorly, learns what to look for then goes and buys the gun that she fits to herself and then outshoots her husband because of it.

  2. I am new to shooting, and firearms and I agree with you my 9mm good in my hand. I had to look and hold a lot of different ones until I found one that felt comfortable in my hand.June

  3. The biggest issue women have with semi automatic firearms is operating the slide. Many are too hard for women over forty so that really needs to be a consideration when showing them guns.

      I recently purchase the Sig Sauer P320 and found the slide to be the easiest one to rack by far. I can almost do it with just two fingers.

  4. Don’t forget they have to be cleaned too. Some guns can be nightmare to clean. That should be part of the equation.

  5. I disagree with the Carry Option. I use Sneaky Pete with XD9 Mod2. It comes across as iPad.
