    What are your opinions for best 9mm (single stack) compact or sub-compact for concealed carry? Looking for both pocket, holster and even purse (for my wife)?

    Any specific comments on Kel-Tec, Sig P239, Ruger SR9c. . .or others?

    I love My CW9. Well made , Accurate , Light weight , SMOOOOTH trigger , Good ergonomics. So far no complaints.

    If your looking to go smaller the cm9 was released today.

    Product: PPS 9mm

    Walther PPS

    It's a bit pricey , but worth it.

    Very accurate , 6/7/8 rnd mags availible and can swap out backstrap for a better fit.

    For purse or pocket carry in 9mm, Kahr PM9.
    Although I found it a tad too big, thick, and heavy for pocket carry.
    I use my LCP for that purpose.

    I'm going with the PM9 because I own one and know how well it fits the bill.
    Great pistol with great ergonomics. There is no pertruding parts on the pistol to get hung up on your clothing. I think the PM9's have some of the best DOA triggers on the market. (if you want to call it DAO) I have never regreted buying it.
    Kimber,Kel Tec, Ruger, Walther,CZ and others have some nice ones on the market as well. Which one is best depends on who likes what, and who's shooting it.

    I'm not a fan of anything with a manual safety for a true carry gun. I'm also a fan of the value the Kahr family of pistols provides. With that said ... Kahr CW9 or PM9 would be my choice. I own a CW40 and a PM9.

    Best single stack 9mm for concealed carry?

    H&K P7M8. Accept no substitute (unless it's a P7/PSP--that'll do as well).

    I'd put the SR9c on the same scale as our own XDM9 3.8 Compact, just with less capacity.

    I own one for the sole purpose that it's also a "dual use" gun - going from the double-stack 10-round CC magazine to a full-sized 17-round magazine, with grip extension, for HD use.

    I've put some 1300 rounds through mine, in the first two months of owning it, but now that I know that it'll go bang, I've pretty much put it way in the bedroom safe - and it stays there, even when I "check-out" my full-sized XDm9 for range- or class-work.

    It's not a single-stack, it's not all that slim. It'll carry pretty nicely, depending on your build, dress, and, of course, the holster (or other carry system) you choose. But it's much more cousin to the XDm9 3.8 Compact and other double-stackers like it, rather than the single-stack sub-compact/pocket-9s like the Kahr PM9/CW9, etc.

    I hope the Kimber Solo turns out to be dependable as I really like it's small size even though I have never held one :)

    If you are looking for a decent quality product at a reasonable price go with the Taurus 709 Slim. A great cc gun and very reliable.

    I guess the jury is still out on the Kimber Solo but I hope it will live up to it's potential and the price drops with availability.
