Look at the Walther pps9 or .40.. I have the 9mm and it is very comfortable to carry and is an excellent shooter.

Well, if you can stomach glocks, you have a better digestion system than I do.

Doesn't glock make a CCW pistol?

Default Just my opinion

With modern ammo and not having to use +P ammo I don't think the .380 is a bad load at all!

Not the same as a .40 or any larger load but not the kicking mentioned by one poster.

I have a Makarov .380 and it is available in 9mm and I don't know anyone who has one or has shot one that doesn't like the gun. They fit nice, shoot straight and should get the job done.

Just my opinion!

I tried the smaller framed pistols, but I just couldn't get comfortable with them. Even a J frame revolver - no luck.

So I went back to my one and true love - The Commander framed 1911.
I switch off between one of 2 Colts and my Les Baer Concept 7. All have been tuned and tested - And each has taken it's turn at the USPSA match too!

Reliable, great stopping power, 8 rounds... The Commander 1911- What's not to love.
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm.

"No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle."

I have a Glock M19, great gun. I have thought the same thing. It is nice, but to conceal in the summer, you have to be creative with your clothing. I have a Kahr P380, which is very similar to the Glock, in the way that it functions. Very accurate for a small gun, and very easy to conceal. I've looked at small nines, and have thought about getting one, many, the size of the Bersa Thunder 380. I wanted something smaller. I don't like the LCP's or Keltec's personally, I also thought about the Sig. Unless your familiar with the function of the gun (very similar to a 1911) I wouldn't recommend to someone new to firearms or concealed carry. The Kahr P380 is a good BUG or summer gun, fun to shoot. It can also handle +P ammunition. I think the P380 is what you’re looking for.

I am enjoying my new M&P comp0ace 9mm. I never thought I would say that but I now have an M&P full size and a compact and love them both. Good bye Glocks, hello Smiths.

I've spent a lot of time working on this issue. I went with a sig P230 but it was heavy and .380, then the S&W M&P 9C (I can't keep them my daughter has my first, my daughter in law has my second). Then I narrowed it down to a Ruger LCR or the S&W airweight. Yes a wheel gun but when your looking at ease of use and ease of carry pretty hard to find better in a caliber (38spl +P) IMHO. I went with the S&W because S&W are revolvers I know well.
