There is an incredibly wide variety of six-pieces and sidearms specifically designed for defense. A significant portion, if not nearly all of the models for virtually every gun manufacturer that makes a concealed weapon, are either specially designed for CC or can be used for both CC or OC. Everything from a .25 auto sidearm up to a .44 magnum six-piece can be used for and or adapted to a defense role as a CC gun during a bad conflict.
There is a gun for every civilian’s needs in size, ammunition, configuration, magazine extension, and ability to carry private. Before making a final determination, it is suggested that you talk to several different concealed permit trainers, and take the opportunity to fire every gun you are considering in order to find the one that best fits your hand, your technique as a shooter, and your dispute.
Typically, an automatic sidearm requires more teaching for all possible firing scenarios than that of a six-piece.
