Maybe the BATFE has some stuff left over from "Fast-N-Furious" they'd like to give away.
Anyway, good luck with your search, there are lotsa good guns out there, so find something you feel comfortable with and enjoy it.
In 9 mm or .40 I'd suggest the Kahr CW line. Exactly 4" tall and under 1" wide. Very concealable and shootable. Personally I'd stay away from .40 in any sub compact. Way more snap for negligible added knock down.
Were I in the market today I'd put my money on the new XDS .45 ACP.
I think that should have somewhat of a bearing on your decision.
My nephew carries a Kahr PM9 with a IWB holster and he also owns a Glock 19 and he carries that in a shoulder holster. So he's got a few options in regard to the method of carry.
As for me, my CCW is a Beretta 84fs (.380 ACP). In the 20+ years I've owned it, never had a FTF or FTE and IMO, it's small enough to carry comfortably and It feels way better in my hand than a sub compact does, and grip is vital.
