Concealed carry, like the term “pocket pistol,” is open to various interpretations. The only constant to either is that no one should be aware that you are carrying concealed. Achieving that goal is established by three prerequisites: the type of gun, the means of carry and your ability to proficiently retrieve the gun. The 12 guns chosen for this list cover a range of sizes and calibers, and all are ideally suited to achieving the goal of personal protection through a concealed-carry firearm. Armed with this information, you should be well equipped to choose which firearm type works best for you and your personal needs regarding concealed carry.
