Sig Sauer P938 Scorpion
This 9mm handgun I find ideal for concealed carry. There are many many things I love about this lightweight handgun. My favourite thing about the Scorpion is that the gun fires so accurately, every time, for me. I’ve had my fair share of conceal carry pistols, and this one just fits. It’s the right size, it’s high quality and it’s deadly accurate.
For those that know, I have been a GlockGirl since I’ve been handling firearms, this is the first non-GLOCK handgun that I rave about.
I love the color, I love the mini 1911 style, I love the ambi safety, and while I was hesitant about the single-action only, it has really grown on me. I never carried one in the chamber, anyway, so instead of turning off the external safety, I simply chamber a round, and I’ve trained myself to do it as I pull it from my holster.
Can Can Concealment
One of my favorite products in the store right now is the Can Can concealment holster. I carry a Sig Sauer P238 (.380) or P938 (9mm) and the Can Can is an inside the waistband holster that wraps all the way around the hips and fits both comfortably. It comes in many color combinations and sizes and there is one for everyone! I feel my gun is very secure no matter what I wear it with. I will and can wear this holster with anything but a dress and on one can tell I even have it on. The only tough part was getting used to the slight pressure around my hips because it is larger than my belt, but now that I’m used to it I don’t even notice it any more.
H&K VP 9
About 6 months ago I was at the range with a coworker. He had recently purchased a Heckler & Koch VP 9 and raved about it. The week prior to our range session he had been singing the guns praises and as an owner of a Glock 19 (my daily carry gun) I was interested in comparing the two. When he safely handed the pistol to me I was immediately struck by how well it fit in my hand. The VP9s grip has finger grooves and interchangeable grip panels that make customizing the pistol to different hand sizes easy and quick and it lent itself to a strong, natural grip. When I fired off the first round I couldn’t believe how crisp the trigger was. It had very little take up, no creep and broke at what felt like 5 or 6 pounds. For us in Massachusetts an off the shelf pistol with a great trigger is hard to come by and as you can tell by now I was already thinking about trading in my Glock. I fired a 5 round string at 15 yards and was rewarded with a small group that made me feel like a competition shooter. I fired off a second string and again a great group. Felt recoil was minimal, the gun had super accuracy and needless to say I was sold. The next day I bought one. I have since fired over 500 rounds thru my VP 9 without a malfunction. It is the most accurate polymer 9mm I have owned and as an owner of several pistols in various calibers it is my new favorite and the pistol I shoot most often (next to my Ruger MK III, it’s a 22 and 22s are cheap to shoot, what can I say). If you are in the market for a great 9mm, whether it be your first pistol or just one to add to your collection you can’t go wrong with the HK VP 9.
