Year End Review: Top 10 Best Selling Handguns of 2016
I’ve spent the past week compiling the data – and the results are in! Here is a list of the Top 10 Best Selling Concealed Carry Handguns of 2016.
To classify as a concealed carry gun, I look for these characteristics:
- Lightweight and concealable
I ordered this list by popularity, with the most popular carry gun in the #1 spot.
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #10: Glock 43
The G43 is the most highly desired and anticipated release in GLOCKs history. It’s ultra-concealable, accurate and fantastic for all shooters regardless of hand size. Engineered to the same standards, the G43 can withstand the same tortures as other GLOCK pistols.
The best part about the Glock 43? I just put it on sale for $111 bucks off of the regular MSRP.
- Safe Action
- Sub Compact
- 1-Extended Mag, 1-Flat Bottomed Mag, Mag Loader
- Fixed Sights
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #9: Glock 19 Gen 4
The Glock 19 consistently (and rather annoyingly LOL) makes every best-selling list for just about every year. This is the Glock every concealed carrier knows and loves. Its high capacity (15+1) and lightweight design makes the Glock 19 one of the top choices for concealed carry.
We’ve just listed the Glock 19 Gen 4 at $100 bucks off of MSRP.
- Safe Action
- 3 Mags, Glock OEM Rail
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #8: Smith&Wesson Shield 45ACP
You never know when you need protection. Smith&Wesson took the power and features of their full sized M&P pistols and put them into the proven design of their best-selling Shield frame. Slim, lightweight, and reliable, the M&P Shield is an easy to conceal pistol that offers professional grade features with simple operation and reliable performance day or night.
I just listed the Shield 45ACP on sale for $60 bucks off MSRP. Check it out here.
- Striker Fired
- 45 ACP
- 6Rd & 7Rd
- 2 Mags
- No Manual Safety or manual safety (optional)
- 3 Dot
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #7: Ruger LC9s & LC9s Pro
The Ruger LC9 was a great gun – but it had one downfall. It had a long, hard, double-action trigger pull. Ruger once again listened to their customers and designed a striker-fired version – the Ruger LC9s. They also built a Ruger LC9s PRO – the same striker-fired Ruger LC9s without an external thumb safety or magazine safety.
The Ruger LC9s Pro is the perfect gun for experienced concealed carriers – but if you’re not an experienced carrier, stick with the LC9s.
- Exactly the same size and shape as the original LC9
- Newly designed striker-fired action which lead to a trigger pull better than a Glock’s
- Fires without magazine in
Ruger LC9s Pro:
- No thumb safety
- Sweet trigger pull
- Fires without magazine in
- Trigger safety only
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #6: Sig Sauer P238
All-metal and under a pound, the P238 microcompact is built for the most exacting 1911 enthusiast. It offers a host of models designed to suit any shooter. This is a big gun that fits in your pocket. Available exclusively through Talo Distributors, this special-edition version features an Army Green anodized alloy frame, a Nitron stainless steel frame and a Hogue rubber finger groove grip.
This is one of the most bad-ass carry guns on the market. We only have a few left because I dropped the price $100 bucks from MSRP – so click here to pick one up before they’re gone.
- Single Action Only
- Duo Tone
- Black Wood
- 1 Mag
- Fixed Night Sights
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #5: Sar B6P (EAA)
This is one of those guns you’ll either like or hate. The Sar B6P is modeled after the ever-popular CZ-series firearms. The polymer lower makes the gun super lightweight, but the way the slide actually rides over the slide means this gun has a different type of recoil than you’re used to. The fantastic price point helps bring this gun in at a strong #5.
SAR ARMS B6P 9MM FEATURES
Some of the external firearm features are:
- Right handed external manual safety
- Slide release (also right handed)
- Double and single action hammer
- Right handed magazine release
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #4: Smith&Wesson M&P Bodyguard .380ACP
I just can’t say enough about the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380ACP. This is a fantastic carry gun with excellent features at a GREAT price. Built-in laser. External thumb safety. Lock-back on empty. You can’t beat this gun for this price.
- External slide stop and safety
- 6 round capacity magazine with finger extension or standard flat floor plate
- Convenient carry case that has a built in holster
- Built in dual mode laser
- 2.75″ Barrel
- Low profile front and rear sights
Best Selling Guns of 2016 #3: Taurus PT111
Some people hate the entire Taurus brand. 99% of those people never owned one. There’s a ton of reasons why the Taurus PT111 made it to number 3 on this list. You just need to put one in your hand to really understand the perfect ergonomics of this gun. Taurus did an outstanding job – and the price is perfect.
Do yourself a favor and check out all the features that make the Taurus PT111 the perfect carry gun – including the sale price of $299 bucks.
Taurus PT111 Specifications:
- Double Action Only
- 2 Mags

Best Selling Guns of 2016 #2: FMK 9mm
If you like the Glock 19, you’re going to LOVE this FMK. Designed to fit in all the Glock 19 holsters, accessories, sights, and lasers – but also designed to be much nicer on your wallet. The standard FMK 9mm comes laser engraved with the Bill of Rights on the slide. This is one patriotic gun.

Best Selling Guns of 2016 #1: Honor Guard 9mm
We spent a LOT of time marketing and promoting the Honor Guard 9mm – for good reason! Its one of the all time best carry guns on the market today. It is a gun designed for the FIGHT – with ambidextrous everything. They don’t care about lefties like me us much as they care f you can operate the gun while injured.
