Is Springfield Armory’s slim little pocket rocket the best concealed carry pistol in the world? We live in the glory days of conceal-carry options. Never before has the market been this full of handguns designed to go everywhere you go; from size, to caliber, to price range, we live in the golden age of personal defense handguns.
What the new LCRx revolvers have to offer: Ruger has added a new 9mm, .327 Fed. Mag and two .22 WMR models to the LCRx line. The .22 WMR is available in a 1.87- and 3-inch barrel models. The 9mm and .327 Fed. Mag. are optimized for concealed carry, with 1.87-inch barrels. It’s difficult to improve on a design as tried and true as a revolver.
The gun comes in two basic configurations, the CPX-1 which has a thumb safety, and the CPX-2 which does not. Both have a MSRP of $319 and can be found for less in most gun shops and online retailers. Both the CPX-1 and CPX-2 are offered in a variety of finishes and frame colors so the end user can pick whichever configuration suits them best. The pistols come with very usable 3 dot sights that are pretty nice considering the price of the pistol.
Yup, the Bersa Thunder 380 CC is essentially an alloy framed clone of the famed and fabled Walther PPK. The Argentinian company straight up copied the German wunderbabypistole.
