Taurus G2C

Taurus G2C


“This is a great CCW pistol for the price point. It’s incredibly reliable and has very few flaws. Taurus has been around for a while, and its reputation is…spotty. But the G2C is designed from the ground up to be a highly affordable compact CCW pistol – and it nails it.”

Glock 43X

Glock 43X


Glocks do a lot of things right and G43x is one of them. This gun is very comfortable to conceal carry, easy to shoot, and great for defensive shooting. With its straightforward Glock platform and thin profile, this gun is a great choice for CCW. The Glock 43x has a short slide with a barrel length of 3.41 inches and a total length of 6.5 inches. It weighs only 18.7oz, is 5.04 inches tall, and is 1.06 inches wide. It has a trigger pull weight of approximately 5.5 lbs, consistent with other Glock models. Out of the box, this gun comes with standard 10-round mags which isn’t as efficient when compared to a similar-sized Sig P365.

Sig Sauer P365

Sig Sauer P365


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

final verdict

The Taurus G3C is a compact and affordable CCW that has some nice improvements over its predecessor the G2C. It brings easy-to-reach controls with a nice grip. With the G3C, you get three magazines, front slide serrations, a better magwell, and Glock-compatible metal sights. If you’re stuck between the G2C and the G3C we recommend going with the G3C. It’s a few extra bucks but well worth it.
