Default New Concealed Carry/Off Duty Pistol

I've decided that instead of getting another full size gun that I am getting a gun for concealed carry. Only looking to spend around $600 if I can. The ones I have been looking at are:

CZ P01
Glock 19
Sig 229 - If I can find one for around $600.
FNP 9m

Just want to know everyones opinions on these guns and which you would choose and why.

Why don't you include some concealed carry/BUG's on your list?

Have you looked at the XD or M&P?

I picked up a used FNP 9M very cheap ($300) and I'm impressed with the quality and accuracy. It reminds me of a Sig in operation but not nearly so much money...

Getting a compact or subcompact version of your duty weapon might be a good idea, since you're already familiar with that weapon.

Out of your list, I'd go with a CZ (although I like the steel framed ones a lot more than the P01) or the FNP.

If you don't mind a suggestion, try out a S&W M&P compact. They are pretty good.

My duty weapon is a Glock 22. Only reason didn't add M&P or XD is because the place I'm buying from doesn't have any. Anyone know any of any holsters for the FNP 9m. I heard it was hard to find one.

I've have seen holsters for the FNP 9 but do they also fit for the FNP 9m?

Should as the barrel is just slightly shorter. I don't carry mine but it fits well in an old holster I had for a 3rd generation S&W 5906 (I think)...
