The Sig P365 is an impressive micro 9mm with a great track record. This gun is a popular subcompact semi-auto pistol, designed for CCW and self defense. Some of it’s key features include a 10-round capacity, which is higher than many of its competitors, compact and modular, has XRAY3 Day/Night sights providing visibility in low light conditions, and ambi controls. We’ve tested this gun time and time again. As our writer puts it, “The rest of the industry has had a couple of years to catch up but the P365 is still an impressive micro 9mm that is super popular as a CCW option.” – Travis Pike
The Ruger LCP is a .380 chambered semi-auto pistol that offers a convenient concealed carry gun to those looking for a slim pistol. Perfect for pocket carry, this tiny pistol also works well as a backup gun. It can hold 6+1 rounds in a standard mag and 7+1 in the extended mag.
“For newcomers to concealed carry or shooting in general, the mild .380 paired with Sig’s 1911-esque design works well as an entry-level pistol. Alternatively, seasoned shooters looking for a backup gun or micro-compact for concealed carry will also be pleased with what the P238 offers. For me, it’s for special occasions and outfits that prevent me from carrying the S&W Shield or MR920. And it would serve you well under the same conditions, as a BUG, or as a first-time purchase.” – Jacki Billings
