Walther PPS...slim profile, sweet shooter, super concealable...

...only drawbacks are less capacity than the XD's and you don't get a bunch of goodies with it...mags, holsters...

Just a suggestion...

I personally wouldn't get a .40. I like my Walther PPS in 9mm for compact carry. The Sig P-938 should also be a good choice for a sub-compact

only thing i dont like about 9mm is the velocity on the round.. would rather not have to worry about where my round goes after defending myself from a perp.

although i always know my target and backstop id rather have less to worry about

I'm planning to get the Sig P938 as soon as i can find one. Looking for either the Blackwood, or rosewood. So far, nothing. Even the Sig Rep I talked to recently in person seemed to have no idea when they were going to be out. Seems like they're still getting their new facility up & running in Portsmouth, NH, and they might be making them there, he says.......

I know you asked about .40 cal, but I like .45 or 9mm better - JMHO

I think you can get these guns in .40 too.

I'd suggest you look at the S&W M&P 9c or shield.

Both excellent guns.

Here's my 9c



Very small and light for a 12+1 gun in 9mm -

I like the external safety on a "striker" fired concealed carry gun.

Wonderful shooting gun.

Yes, over penetration is a very real worry in just about any caliber if the right bullet and load is not selected. This is especially true of the 147 grain 9mm bullets I have personally tested. As far as velocity, a .40 will easily exceed 1200FPS with a 155 grain bullet, which is very capable of over penetration. The .40 is only a little over one millimeter larger in diameter than than a 9mm bullet with a similar mass and velocity.

I personally don't see any ballistic advantage of the .40 and I find the biting recoil much more unpleasant than either the 9mm or 45 ACP. I realize that others will have a different opinion, but as a long time handloader, competitive shooter, plinker and instructor that's just my opinion.
