For many, handguns are the last line of defense in a dangerous situation. Because of this, many states have expanded their concealed-carry weapon (CCW) laws to allows self-defense-minded citizens to protect themselves and their loved ones.
When it comes to concealed carry, you need a pistol that balances size, power, capacity and ease of use. Several manufacturers have stepped up to the plate to offer some truly innovative designs that hide easily on your person while being easy to aim and offering plenty of ammo on tap for any situation you might face. The FNS-40 Compact, for example, offers a 14+1 capacity of hard-hitting .40 S&W ammo to stop an attacker, yet it’s only 6.7 inches long and 25.8 ounces unloaded. Another compact option is the Sig Sauer P320 Carry, which comes in a variety of chamberings and, thanks to its modular design, can quickly be transformed into a full-sized handgun while still retaining the same striker-fired trigger system.
COMBAT HANDGUNS is all about showcasing the latest self-defense pistol to hit the market, and 2015 saw several compact designs graces its colorful pages. Here are some of the best models from this past year.
