Taurus International has come a long way in manufacturing and in the USA. In over 10 years of selling Taurus products we have watched this company grow tremendously. The company has grown to be a international brand in the firearms market. Taurus has made game changing designs that no other manufactuer  dare to try.

9mm Pocket Pistols

With the gun industry wanting to make everything smaller and more concealable the market for compact 9mm pistols is growing. Over the past 4 years the most popular catridge for concealed carry was the .380ACP. Many manufactures devoted plenty of money and hard determined work into making these pistols smaller and more reliable. Within the past year they have turned away from the .380 and have went on to bigger and better things. The 9mm is now becoming the largest concealed carry pocket pistol on the market.

 

Lets go over just a couple that have come out:

 

The Kimber Solo:

Kimber Solo

Kimber Solo

The Solo Carry 9mm establishes a new standard for micro-compact pistol features and performance. The Kimber Solo is a well built pocket 9mm that is flying off the shelves. The frame is made of aluminum and the with a overall weight of 17 ounces. The Kimber can hold 6 rounds of 9mm. A perfect reliable option for carrying in your pocket.

 

 

 

Ruger LC9:

Ruger LC9

The Ruger LC9 is another good option for those who are wanting to carry a 9mm in their pocket. The Ruger LC9 is way less money than the Kimber Solo. It can be found for around $389 in most gun stores. The Ruger LC9 weighs 17.1 ounces and can hold up to 7 rounds. It is a tad bit larger than the Kimber but still conceals just as easy. This is another good option if your in the market for a low priced compact 9mm.
Diamondback DB9:
Diamondback DB9

Diamondback DB9

The Diamondback DB9 is one of the most impressive guns out. The Diamondback DB9 is going to be the cheapest option when searching for a compact 9. The DB9’s steel double-action-only trigger rides on dual connecting bars for a smooth, crisp 5-pound trigger. It uses steel single-stack magazines for a 6+1 capacity. Diamondback has struck a useful balance with its sights, which are low profile and visible at the same time. The safeties of the DB9 are internal. The pistol features Diamondback’s patented “Zero Energy” striker system. Unlike other striker systems, where the striker rides under some degree of spring tension, this system has no tension on the striker until the trigger is pressed. The no-tension striker, combined with a mechanical striker block, keeps the striker away from the cartridge primer until the gun is purposely fired.

 

Here are three great choices to choose from when looking for a new pocket 9. I hope this helps everyone in their search.
