Beretta PX4 Compact Carry

Picture 1 of 13

Few pistols pack so many features into a small package as Beretta’s PX4 Compact Carry. Available in either 9mm or .40 S&W, it gives you peace-of-mind whether you are at home or out and about. It comes with an automatic firing pin block, ambidextrous slide lock, interchangeable grips, reversible magazine release, Picatinny rail and a drop-free magazine. The adjustable sights allow you to make the gun shoot where you need it to when you need it to. ($650; Beretta.com)

Any carry gun is a good one when you need it, but some just outshine the competition. They feel a little better, they shoot straighter and they do exactly what they are supposed to do every time you pull the trigger. That’s why Gun Digest is highlighting a handful of firearms in this Gear of the Year issue. Of course, a concealed carry gun needs to be carried and concealed. We’ve also included some of the best holsters on the market. They not only give you a place to put your favorite CC gun, they allow you to carry in comfort and style.
