    Default SCCY CPX-2 9mm

    This is the second time I’ve tried to post this so here is the short version... wife hinted around about a purple gun so I bought this SCCY CPX-2 9mm. Don’t know much about SCCY. Guy came to the counter while I was looking at it and said he had the same model and never had an issue with it. The other options were a Taurus G2C 9mm and a .380 that I can’t remember the manufacturer. The .380 was just awkward. I think it wound have been for her as well. The Taurus needed tossed in a burn pile. Seriously, the stippling on the grip was so bad it was like grabbing a handful of glass. The SCCY seemed well built, comfortable, although the handle is a bit on the wide side. Not so much that it would be a control issue but noticeably wide. Came with a second magazine. No safety on this model. That is a downside but she shouldn’t be laying it down or carrying it around chambered anyway. I’ll get her a better gun once I have her hooked. Pictured below. Let me know your feedback on this model if you have any.

    I know a few people that have them and have no problems. Never heard anything bad. RK has them on sale for 189.00!

    I ended up with a G2C, not much of a difference between them from what I could tell. At the moment I bought the G2C, the SCCY was $20 more, so......

    BTW, the grip on the G2C is "aggressive" as they say, most people like it, I don't care but it is a little ridiculous.

    Biggest difference I can see is that the Taurus is striker fired. The SCCY is an internal double action hammer fired which in the end resulted in a much longer but smoother trigger pull (per the reviews).

    But the G2C also has double strike. The G2C did need a trigger upgrade too, not too bad now.

    I sanded the grip texture down on my one taurus. Forget if it was the 111 or 140. But yeah it was too aggressive.

    Guess we’ll find out how she likes it on Wednesday. I’ll have to go pick it up and take her out to her dad’s to try it out. Got my fingers crossed. If she really likes it, think I’m going to go pick her up a Browning 1911-380. I got to handle one in the shop. It’s got to be one of the best feeling .380’s I’ve handled yet. 105 grain 9mm from a 3.1” barrel and a 90 grain .380 from a 4.25” barrel ought to be pretty comparable as far as muzzle energy. The .380 will have less recoil, be more accurate and pleasant to handle. It’s basically a 85% scaled down model 1911.

    Why not rent a few and let her decide which she might like? How feels in the hand, how it shoots and recoil are all subjective and can only be perceived by the one shooting.
