Looking for a single stack 9mm for CC. Suggestions? GO!
 
Hey all-

I currently carry a M&P Shield 40 as my primary carry. I'm looking for another carry weapon in 9mm that is a single stack. I like the slim frame (I'm 5'10, 160) of the M&P due to wearing it inside a tucked in button down shirt.

If I'm unable to find something that I love (and I haven't yet) then I'll be going with a Glock 26. I know that's not a single stack, but I love the look and hey... It's a Glock!

Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions?

M&P Shield in a 9mm? Haha, that's what I carry now, along with a Sig p238. You can look at the Sig p938 (9mm) if you're a fan of the 1911 platform.

Maybe a 9mm shield? I mean you already are familiar with the gun. Or for ultra small, Diamondback DB9 or a SCCY.

I personally hate Glocks. No reason, just my own bias.

But if you want a single stack, and that's what you're used to for that matter, why go double stacked all of a sudden? I suggest going into a LGS and asking to stick a G26 in your carry position, dressed how you normally would. You'll know at that time if a double stack is right for you or not.

Also take a look at this chart for some single stack 9mm ideas:

Look at your first sentence and then read the post prior's first sentence...great minds think alike :-)

I carry the Shield 9mm. Very happy about it. Own Glock 26 but too bad it's bulky.
Few days ago i just purchased the newly released Xds9 Bitone. It's almost identical to the Shield in the term of size and thickness.
Shot it about 250 rounds through it on the last 2 days and not even a single failure! Accuracy is much better than the Shield. But the grip texture is way too agressive which causes pain if you like to shoot. But the problem can be solved by adding the Talon grip.
Now i'm hoping Raven will be making the Phantom holster for the Xds as i use Raven for my Shield.
So check the Xds9 out!
Here are my Shield and Xds9 pics :)

One option is a smith and Wesson 39.

Seems like a easy pick, buy a sheild. Same basic feel and trigger. Nothing new to learn.
