I love my PM9, carry it all the time. If you can conceal a Hi Power you will love it, they are a joy to shoot and are very accurate even at distance. Two personal changes for the Hi Power, get rid of the mag disconnect and install an extended safety. I also really like a set of Spegel grips.

About half my pistols are 1911s, nearly the other half are Sigs, and I have 2 revolvers (not counting the 617). For a carry guns, I'm a fan of DA/SA Sigs as once decocked - they are just like revolvers. For a nice single stack carry piece - how about a Sig P239. I paid about $425 OTD for this one used but in mint condition...

Are you wanting new or used? If you have no problem going the used route I'd say a Sig P229 in .40 or .357 sig. The XD series are great guns too...I have 2 XD pistols and one XDM, they are great and carry pretty well when dress permits. My newest carry gun is a Glock 27...not sure how you feel about them but I like that I can conceal this thing in Summer attire. If money permits though my personal preference is Sig.

This here is about what I paid for mine as well $450. From a US Marshal deploying out.

From an old timer, I tend to go with either 1911 or hi-power.

I don't own a Glock...but, still, I would say Glock -- either 26 or 27.

In terms of pistols can it get any easier especially for an experience shooter?

HKUSP9C?
Kimber Pro or Ultra carry in 45?
SMith and Wesson M60 357?

just some of my favorites.

Carrying a pistol is so cliche. You need to start carrying one of these,
