Is it okay to compromise on a CCW gun, if you’ll actually carry it?

Ben in Fayetteville sends in today’s Q&A voicemail asking about whether or not it’s alright to compromise on a concealed carry gun if you’ll actually carry the gun you choose.

I think so, and it’s what I practice in the summer months. I’d love to be able to comfortably carry a Glock 19 IWB in 100* weather, but it’s just not always in the cards when I also have to keep it concealed. Most of the time in the warmer months you’ll find me rocking a Kel-Tec PF-9 in a pocket somewhere, because in my opinion, it’s a whole lot better than not carrying.

If you’ve got a question that you’d like me to answer, here’s how to submit it.

  1. All very good points! First rule of a gun fight is to bring a gun. However, while I could more easily carry a S&W .380 Bodyguard everywhere: it is NOT the ideal firearm I would want in a defensive encounter. While I’d prefer my Full size M&P 9 or VP9, I cannot conceal carrying as effectively as much as my Shield 9. The question that I ask myself is such: Which defensive firearm would I choose to protect myself and my loved ones from harm, given the choice? I want comfort and concealment; but still sacrifice a TINY bit of comfort because it’s supposed to be comforting not comfortable. My commitment to protecting my family may run deeper than some other folks though, so to each his/her own. Keep up the great work and podcasts!!
