Default Deep concealment ccw

I was looking for some opinions on a deep concealment carry weapon I know that there are already threads about ccw but I'm looking for little reliable and stopping power. I already have an m&p .45 compact for my current carry weapon. But what to carry when it CAN'T be noticeable at all!!!

Kahr PM 9 or CM 9

I've carried my PM 9 for the last 5 hears of my 16 years off CCW.

Better Stopping power than any "noisy cricket" caliber

Uber concealable at under 1" wide and 4" tall YET large enough to hold in a propper shooting grip.

Tack

Amen. Excellent gun, somewhat familiar platform for the original poster. It can be carried just about any which way. In summer shorts and a light shirt it'll carry well in an IWB holster or belly band. I like the belly band for mine.

Yup I figured he should go with something he already knows and I'm pretty sure this is the exact reason they designed the m&p shield.

Can I ask a question without coming off as bashing poly guns but...................hasn't the whole argument to go with these guns has been based on capacity?

The Shield is a single stack with six rounds??

I'm glad you guys have come around to a true concealed carry gun but you should realy look at the 1911 Commander. It has 8 rounds!
