The world of small carry guns is a crowded one that is dominated by a handful of big-name manufacturers. Ask any shooter what they carry and chances are you will receive a response including one of the following brand names: Glock, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Sig Sauer, Beretta, or Kel-Tec. Each of those companies offers a number of different compact and subcompact handguns, catering to the needs and tastes of just about every shooter out there.
One name that has been gradually working its way into that storied bunch is SCCY (pronounced “sky”). SCCY is focused solely on producing affordable, reliable, and well-made carry pistols. Its first offering was the CPX-1, a subcompact, double-action-only, 9x19mm semiauto released in 2005. Five years later, the CPX-2 was unveiled. Lacking its predecessor’s manual safety, the CPX-2 is perfect for those who don’t want to fuss with any levers when drawing their gun.
