Fox News is the only major news network to give the 2017 SHOT Show consumer-type coverage. Only I’m not so sure about the quality of that coverage. We report, you decide.
Allison Barrie, who “consults at the highest levels of defense, has travelled to more than 70 countries [and] is a lawyer with four postgraduate degrees” wrote an article entitled 6 great concealed carry guns at SHOT Show 2017. Here are her choices:
Taurus Spectrum .380 ACP Pistol (previewed by TTAG here)
The Kimber Micro 9 Bel Air (TTAG review to follow shortly)
The Colt Cobra .38 Special +P (previewed by TTAG here)
The Walther Arms Creed (reviewed by TTAG here)
FNS-9 Compact in FDE (reviewed in standard form here)
Smith & Wesson M2.0 (previewed by TTAG here)
Of these six, I can confidently report that one is awesome (FNS-9) and at least two are not so great (the Bel Air and Colt Cobra).
Anyway, Ms. Barrie was focusing on “new” concealed carry guns (if a FDE version FNS-9C counts as new). Let’s widen that — because all the really great concealed carry guns were at SHOT as well. What are your picks for six great concealed carry handguns?
