One of the most important factors is the gun’s weight. You don’t want to feel uncomfortable lugging it around, and you don’t want to be limited when it comes to protecting yourself.
Get the lightest handgun you can, but be aware that heavier guns tend to have less of a noticeable recoil which in return might offer a more favorable shoot.
If your gun is super-lightweight, do not be be tempted to set your purse down at any costs or leave it behind, or unattended when out and about.
Always plan ahead of time when and where you will need your concealed carry. You don’t want your bag to become uncomfortably heavy.
