    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).
