No corner of the market is growing faster in 2019 than that for concealed-carry guns, and manufacturers are fulfilling the need with a host of carry-ready options. Some are sized to be as compact as possible for easy carry, while others bring innovative, new features in guns sized similarly to today's popular double-stack, polymer-framed carry guns. Whether you're looking for a backup gun or a primary carry option, this new-for-2019 list of concealed-carry guns is sure to have something that fits you:
