While more compact carries may be easier to conceal, the 9mm is usually preferred because it has strong stopping power and noticeably less kick than a .40 or a .45 caliber. Another advantage of the 9mm over these calibers is that the bullets aren't as heavy and have a faster velocity. Additionally, it offers a higher magazine capacity and more affordable ammunition. The 9mm gives you more bullets, which will increase your chance of hitting your target in real time. The FBI has selected the 9mm caliber as its service weapon, proving that it is a superior EDC option as it fires faster shot strings and is a more accurate shot. The price range for this type of gun is usually anywhere around $400-$600.SIG Sauer P365
