The July issue of Shooting Illustrated, on newsstands now, is chock-full of concealed-carry information. Whether it’s the exciting new Glock G43 single-stack 9 mm handgun, the Walther CCP or our pocket carry buyer’s guide, there’s something for every armed citizen in this issue.
Walther’s new CCP adorns the cover of our July issue, and for good reason. This single-stack 9 mm handgun represents Walther’s newest effort to bring the company’s styling and ergonomics to the shooting public in the same manner as its P22—an affordable, functional pistol that most everyone can use effectively. From the delayed-gas-blowback operation to the company’s “Soft Coil” technology, the CCP is designed for easy operation no matter who’s behind the trigger.
Since we’re all about options, there’s another single-stack 9 mm handgun in our July issue. The long-awaited Glock G43 makes its debut, bringing the same manual of arms in the G17, G19 and G26 double-stack 9 mm pistols to a size more suitable for pocket carry. The thinnest 9 mm Glock yet may have taken a while to come to market, but anyone who appreciates the company’s approach to pistolcraft will be pleased with the result.
Speaking of handguns for concealed carry, our pocket carry buyer’s guide presents a number of different options. Ten pistols and ten corresponding pocket holsters are showcased, with MSRPs and specifications for all items. If summer’s heat—and attendant loss of your cover garment—has you thinking about smaller pistols, you won’t want to miss this guide.
Once you have your pocket pistol, you’ll need to practice with it to maintain proficiency. Professional instruction is vital, but for the other 51 weeks of the year when you can’t be at a defensive institute, there’s still plenty you can do in the privacy of your own home to put your skills to the test. Whether it’s watching professional instruction from Panteao Productions or using a LaserLyte target to hone your skills, today’s technology offers a plethora of in-home options for training.
