Best of 2017 – Handguns

Asking someone what their favorite gun is can be a pretty loaded question. Yes, pun intended. But we’re going to give it our best shot. Did it again.

Here we go, in no particular order:

Smith & Wesson 9mm Shield
Lightweight at around 20 oz., the Shield is no frills and all business. This low profile makes it perfect for everyday use, self-defense and concealment as well.

The M&P Shield sports proven and reliable features, a reinforced polymer frame, scalloped slide serrations and a positive grip texture.

Kimber K6s Stainless
The K6s is a smaller revolver with a cylinder capacity of six rounds, but don’t go judging because this little monster shoots .357 magnum. So it goes without saying that this handgun is capable of doing serious damage while only sporting a 2-inch barrel length. No short jokes with this bad boy.

SIG Sauer P938
This is an excellent single action semi auto. Reliable, durable and extremely well made. For added versatility, it can also be equipped with SIGLITE. Just like the Shield, this pistol is extremely easy to conceal and carry.

Glock 19
The Glock has a legendary reputation as one of the most reliable handguns on the planet thanks in part to decades of service in the most grueling conditions. It has superb ergonomics and is extremely reliable. These reasons justify it as the primary handgun for law enforcers worldwide. It should be no surprise the 19 is on this list.

Ruger LCP
As one of the most reliable handguns around, no one should be surprised to see the Ruger LCP as the last name on this list. Coming in light at only 9.6 ounces, the Ruger is a compact pistol that can be concealed just about anywhere. This is the natural choice for an individual in search of a dependable backup or primary personal defense carry pistol.
