Consider size and firing reliability when you shop for a concealed handgun. There are numerous options on the market, but some firearms rise above the others. Discover the five most popular concealed carry handguns in 2023.

1. SIG Sauer P365

The SIG Sauer P365 is slim enough to fit in pants pockets and remarkably light at 17 ounces. The P365 fires 9mm rounds and features a 10-round magazine. Few pistols can boast this much stopping power in such a small package.

The downsides for the P365 are few but important to consider. Its tiny profile and light weight will make you feel a stronger recoil. Although, the magazine extension with a pinky extension helps this small gun fit more comfortably in larger hands.

2. Glock 43X

The Glock 43X is one of the most popular concealed carry handguns in 2023. The 43X has a 10-round magazine to hold 9mm rounds, a 16-ounce footprint, and a 3.4-inch barrel length.

The Glock 43X puts a compact grip on a subcompact frame. This construction makes the grip three-quarters of an inch longer, which enables more accurate firing and improves recoil management.

One potential downside to the longer grip is that it makes the gun slightly harder to conceal in your waistband. Consider your purposes carefully, but the Glock 43X is an excellent choice for people who want great stopping power but don’t want a gun as small as the P365.

3. Taurus G2C

If you want to balance performance with value, consider the Taurus G2C. This accurate, reliable handgun comes in 9mm and .40 caliber options.

You can fire this compact, ergonomic weapon with ease. And while other options on this list retail for between $450 and $600, buyers can frequently find the G2C for under $300. You’ll have a quality handgun and save money for other essential concealed carry gear.

4. Ruger LCP MAX

If you think 9mm rounds are too much for concealed carry weapons, you might prefer the Ruger LCP MAX. The LCP MAX holds 12 rounds of .380 ACP and has far more stopping power than the Rugers of old.

At under 1 inch wide and less than 11 ounces in weight, you can fit this gun in a pocket holster. Manufactured with comfort in mind, this small gun has an improved ergonomic grip and includes a finger grip extension floorplate for a better fit.

5. Springfield Armory Hellcat Micro-Compact

The award-winning Hellcat Micro-Compact became one of the top concealed carry guns thanks to its impressive features and small frame. This is the highest-capacity micro-compact pistol on today’s market.

The 9mm Hellcat Micro weighs 18.3 ounces and holds 11 rounds, but it can hold up to 13 rounds with an extended magazine. High-visibility sights and a superior grip texture make this perfect for everyday carry.
