Favorite compact .9mm pistol
 
Everyone has a feeling on this, what's yours? I have been partial to the old S&Ws(39/439), and of late the Ruger LC9 has filled that role for me, Despite some minor issues. I also have an
M-9, and the Ruger SR9, aside from my Colts. The Smallest of my Colts(a Combat Commander) is still to heavy for concealed carry

Compact 9 that I currently carry: Kahr PM9

Compact 9 that I really would like to get: Springfield EMP

I really like my Bersa Thunder9 UCP, but it isn't a tee-tiny pocket pistol.

I love my Ruger SR9c...first gun like a first love haha. She's not QUITE as compact as I'd like, but it'll fit in most average size purses, which is how I carry.

I'd like to get a Ruger LC9 or a Springfield XD SC9. I tried that one today and loved the feel of it, everything about it.

But I'm broke as hell right now, so that's in the FAR future, haha.

Mahalo,
Laura

I love my SIG P229r very much. Great overall pistol. Although I also enjoy shooting my Beretta Nano as well and I have been shooting it more now than the SIG, mostly to break it in. But i really enjoy shooting the Nano, which is something i didn't expect.

No complaints with my CZ 75 compact...

CZ 2075 RAMI BD, and extended mag to 14 and it's still compact.

I hear great things about the EMP in both .9 & .40! My only "Springfields" are Long Guns (an M1A/s & an M1E2)
But based on what I heard from a Local PD pal of mine who carries one Off-duty, I advised a very old Friend(Ret. NYPD det. now doing Courier/P.I. work for a Diamond broker) to consider either the EMP or the Beretta Nano. He had shot both my Beretta's(a 92SB/F & the 92 SBC which was another Gun I had to part with 25+ yrs ago during my divorce and he loves it! Personally I'm looking for a Back up to the backup/CC piece,..and I'm considering the New Beretta PICO because it comes with both .380 & .32ACP barrels & slides! We have no .380's(another gun i had to sell long ago,..my .380 PPK/s :( but Loads of .32ACP since i was planning on Getting the Stainless PP in .32 & DW has a .32ACP derringer...

I would consider the Pico after its been on the market a while. I like the concept and trust the brand, I just prefer to have them work out their kinks on someone else's money.
