    I carry a KAHR PM 45.
    I have small hands so it is a perfect fit just the way it comes without the mag extension. Holds 5 rounds of 45 ACP and that should be plenty for anyone.
    The KAHR PM series is a bit more pricey than the CM series, but the Trigger sold me on the PM series. It is so smooth, you don't even know you pulled it.
    I Was interested in the SPRINGFIELD XDS till I tried the triggers.

    I bought directly from Sig when they had a discount sale. I believe it was 20% off.

    Ditto. These type articles are a dime a dozen. As for me I like Glocks and own several. My favorite carry however is a Springfield TRP.

    I carried a sig 225 for a long time. Single stack 9mm. Great little gun and a tack driver.

    My vote would have to go to the G43. That's what were issued for off duty carry, and I own one personally. They actually shoot well for such a small frame/barrel, and you can conceal it anywhere.

    I carry 4 at all times from a 380 to a 45. I do not sacrifice protection for comfort. The compacts are nice and I carry 2 but a failure drill with the 1911 45acp is a no holds barred proven stopper. I do like the laser on the 380 for low light situations but think I'm going to upgrade to the one that comes on automatically when drawn.

    These reviews are a base line start, you have to choose what fits you best, functionality, and your own weapons handling ability in my opinion.

    Man! You must live in a ROUGH neighborhood!! :eek:

    My old Sig P232 in .380 only stacks 7 + 1, double/single but if I need any more than that in a concealed carry situation, I'm gonna' be in deep doo doo and running for the truck anyway. :p

    I used to carry a FNH FNX-9 but found it to uncomfortable. I now carry a S&W M&P Shield 9. Much better as far as comfort is concerned.

    All of these are great choices and I love all of them. Personally, I carry a Kel-Tec P11 9mm. It’s light, comfortable, and affordable. The only issue I’ve ever had with it was it jammed up on my one time while reloading. Obviously, not a desirable but for the price of the gun, it is very good.
