We are not saying that there are not other great guns and brands. These are the ones that we have experience with or have been recommended by reliable sources. If you can, test fire several different ones, until you find the best one for you! It probably isn’t always the expensive ones.
For CHL (CCW) carry that is. Not to say that others are good for other activities
Granted, there are several great manufacturers that we have not mentioned. These manufacturers, like H&K or Kimber, tend to be a bit on the pricey side, but make great firearms. Because of their starting price range, we consider them outside of our recommended cost scope.
As with brand, try a variety of models to find which one is best for you
