SCCY is one of the last of the little guys, a firearms maker that isn’t part of a giant conglomerate. They set out to fill a single niche, and they have done that well. Sitting down with SCCY at SHOT 2018, we learned some of the reasons why.
Being small has advantages, so long as you play to those strengths. SCCY set out to make affordable guns, that everyone could own. They aren’t the smallest or the lightest, but they do fit the sweet spot of big enough to use/ small enough to carry quite well. And at a cost of $269, you won’t need a second mortgage to have one.

Impressions & Pricing
Inadvertently, SCCY has become a major supplier to female CCW users. They introduced colored frames in a bid to be different, with a wide variety of options. Sales data says that two of the top four sales are in SCCY blue and pink, with an obvious market of female shooters. The colored frames in high visibility colors like orange are also a favorite of anglers and people that live in snowy areas. SCCY is a small company, but big on value. They’re definitely worth a look if you are in the CCW market.
