*Stopping Power is the ability of a firearm or other weapon to cause enough ballistic trauma to a target to immediately incapacitate. It is now believed that stopping power is a myth and not a measurable means of a calibers effectiveness to incapacitate or stop a target.
Whether you’re new to concealed carry or a seasoned veteran, our educational videos will provide you with the information you need to effectively carry concealed.
Deciding what caliber to carry concealed can be a difficult task. There is an endless amount of information on the internet discussing this topic and everyone has their own opinion. The question you should be asking isn't "What is the best caliber?" The real question should be "What caliber am I most comfortable with and can handle efficiently in a defense situation?" And "Can I conceal this firearm effectively on a daily basis?
"Whether it's a .22LR or a .45ACP, any firearm can be a deadly firearm. The gun is just a tool or piece of equipment that is only as efficient as the person who pulls the trigger. That being said, there are a few calibers more commonly used for concealed carry.
The .22LR caliber, .380ACP caliber, 9mm caliber. 38 Special caliber, .40 S&W caliber and the .45 ACP caliber.
.22LR handguns tend to be concealable. They also lack recoil which improves accuracy on follow-up shots. While this caliber can be deadly, it is recommended to use a higher caliber round for self defense such as the .380 ACP.
Handguns firing the .380ACP caliber tend to hold a few more rounds. The tradeoff is that this caliber can lack a bit in stopping power. With accurate shot placement, the.380 ACP is a successful self-defense caliber.
The 9mm is generally considered the weapon of choice for law enforcement agencies and concealed carriers. The 9mm caliber offers a healthy balance between stopping power and usability Ammunition for the 9mm is readily available and offered at a decent price.
.38 Special is a great choice for concealed carriers interested in revolvers. Guns of this caliber tend to be lower in capacity, usually between 5-7 rounds. Ammunition is easy to find and reasonable in price.
The .40 S&W caliber typically has more stopping power than the 9mm caliber, with the tradeoff of a bit more recoil. It's not uncommon for smaller pistols in a higher caliber to have more kickback. Nearly every gun manufacturer produces a handgun in this caliber and ammunition is easy to come by.
The .45 ACP caliber is one of the most powerful cartridges for concealed carry. It provides an adequate amount of stopping power and a mid to high amount of recoil. Ammunition for the .45 S&W caliber is readily available but tend to be a bit more expensive than 9mm or .40 S&W rounds.
