Our bulk ammo Sacramento providers help you pick the right pistol that’s not too big or too small for carrying.
As you’re looking into what handgun to carry for self-defense, you don’t want to go over the top and get a pistol caliber with a .45 ACP. That’s equivalent to throwing a high school wrestler into the ring with Mayweather. If you miss your target because of an intense recoil, your safety will be on the line.
Handgun Size and Ammo
A 9mm will have more capacity with 13 bullets or more while having much less recoil than a .45 ACP. You also need to take into consideration the size of the gun. We recommend not carrying anything less than a 4-inch barrel, but the size will vary depending on how you conceal your firearm.
Our bulk ammo Sacramento experts also want you to understand how some bullets might fail to feed properly in different guns. Buying boxes of a few different bullet types and brands will help you discover your preference. This also gives you an opportunity to head to a range to practice! Some of our top picks for self-defense ammo includes Speer Gold Dot, Federal Hydra-Shok, and Allegiance Ammunition’s OneStrike.
Now that we’ve gone over the basics, let’s get into the actual handguns.
Glock 43: $499
The Glock is a slim 9mm pistol that has a dual spring recoil system and a one-inch wide design that will easily conceal under your clothing as if it wasn’t there. Although the Glock 43 is the smallest 9mm, its Safe-Action feature will make the trigger feel like its bigger Glock family members.
Springfield XD-E: $525
The XD-E has easy handling with its low-effort slide and the perfect fit to your holster. It has unmatched point and shoot ergonomics and has an exposed hammer with a single/double action trigger.
Smith & Wesson M&P 9 2.0: $629
The M&P M2.0 is made for professional, personal and sporting use and has many innovative features. Its low barrel bore axis makes the pistol comfortable to shoot and has an optimal grip angle for natural point of aim. The M&P M2.0 has an audible trigger reset and tactile while offering interchangeable grip inserts to fit your hand perfectly.
