Utah Concealed Weapons Permit (Utah CCW)

2012 SHOT Show Update - New Products Released
of Interest to Utah Concealed Weapons Permit Holders





We just returned from a great time at the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. As always, it is overwhelming to see all of new & exciting products on display. I was particularly looking for any new handguns that would be of interest to holders of the Utah Concealed Weapons Permit. This year seemed to be somewhat of a continuation of the push to release new micro-sized 9mm's. Here's a quick rundown on some of what we found:

New Releases - Concealed Carry Handguns:

  • Kahr PM9 - Author's personal favorite 9mm CCW, avail. with Crimson Trace Laserguard sight.
