Choosing the right sub-compact for your EDC

With record numbers of first-time gun buyers out there, it’s easy to fall into a gun that just doesn’t work well with you. Going to gun shows let’s you handle the guns but you can only truly know if it’s right for you after firing it and carrying it in all situations. Also reliability for when you need your EDC weapon most. Many prefer to carry sub-compacts as they are both slim and can hold plenty of ammo. So when you go looking for your new EDC, the main factors would be your budget and what you need most out of it. Over here at Bereli, we have two of the most popular options being the Beretta APX Carry and the Sig Sauer P365. Let’s go over the pros and cons of either to help you decide which handgun suits your needs.


Designed for law enforcement and military with a need for high concealability, the Beretta APX Carry is a tough little gun. It is chambered in 9mm and can hold 6 to 8 rounds depending on the magazine. The firearm comes with three single stacked magazines, two 6-round magazines that are flush with the grip and an 8-round extended mag that works well with larger hands. Although it is a popular choice, the APX Carry does not come with the option to be optics ready which has become the new standard for sub-compacts. The APX Carry comes in at $349.00 so it is a more affordable option than the Sig Sauer P365 which is the other gun available now.


This award winning micro compact is currently the hottest gun on the market. It’s both compact and high capacity with options for 10, 12, or 15 round magazines. It’s amazing how much can fit in such a small package considering it is chambered for 9mm. There is the option of adding a ROMEOZERO optic to the gun to improve accuracy. The Sig P365 is an amazing gun for any shooter that wants to up their EDC to the next level of concealability and firepower. Coming in at only $549.99 on Bereli, the P365 is packaged with 3 12-round magazines, manual safety, and a holster to get you started.
