XD9sc...no worries about it going off in her purse when her hair brush gets hung up in the trigger.

Hahahaha that's classic. I showed her that post, and she said "you must have told them I'm some kind of priest pants girly girl." Haha. Though she isn't that bad, I would feel better knowing there's extra precautions in case something in that black hole she calls a purse decides it wants to grow hands.

Kahr CM9 or Walther P99c, they are what I found to fit my small hands the best.

The Kahr CW9 that I claim is actually my wifes, She's petite small hands when she felt it she knew. But since I bought the Ruger LC9 we traded. She keeps it in her purse along w/god knows what else we like the external safety and long trigger pull on the LC. With the Kahr if something would catch the trigger BANG. If your wife is gonna holster it get the Kahr,jmo I also have an XDSC40 she shoots it well , but fully loaded its a lot of gun for her to carry around

The XDm9mm at my bedside is still almost too big for my hands with the smallest backstrap. I love my Kahrs for carry, though. I don't know why everyone is suggesting the inexpensive Kahrs. The Kahr K9 is a beautiful thin 9mm. They fit my hand perfectly and my wife enjoys shooting my Kahrs. The trigger is very smooth and the grip is single stack.

Well I guess the reason I suggested the $550.00 inexpensive CW9,(we bought it in the spring of 09 when the ONO admin had everyone freaked out and gun sales were boomn) is I don't have any experience with the PM series and the rest. A while back I was thinking of dropn a grand for a PM w/ext safety. But I'm glad I didn't the CW shoot,functions and conceals great that's good enough for me with some $ left over.

I feel for the money spent the S&W Bodyguard 380 is the best out there. If you check around you can find dealers who will sell for $325.00 NIB even if you paid the $399.00 Sud Retail it is still a good deal!

I am waiting for an extended mag to come out! This fits in an arm pit with out any one knowing! It is very light and after a few cleanings and several hundred rounds thru trigger pull gets acceptible. Fixed sights are good, lazer helps you learn hip shooting.

I know it would be heavier but I would buy another in SS if it comes available.

I purchased a Glock 27. Haven't shot it yet, but there is a range by my house.

Agree with ScottA. Depends on what you mean by subcompact. While my Bersa is named "Ultra Compact", it isn't. It's as compact as you're going to get in a gun that can carry 13+1 rounds of 9mm. But, what I call a subcompact is something like my Kahr CM9. It's 4 1/2 inches long, 4 inches high, under an inch wide, and weighs under a pound (14 ounces).

So if you are talking about a true subcompact, the Kahr I mentioned is an excellent choice. I've heard the Ruger LC9's are good, but a little harder to conceal, in my opinion. There's the Kimber solo, but I think they are overpriced (like most Kimbers) and Gun Tests magazine had some issues with them. The Sig P290 seems to be a good gun, but I don't know that much about them.

And concerning carrying in a purse and worrying about the hair brush setting it off, no matter where you carry a gun, it should NEVER be carried loose, and NEVER in proximity to other objects. That is a recipe for disaster. Something can engage the trigger....bang. Something can get in the barrel, so if you try to use it....boom. And the guns action can get clogged with dirt, lint and other debris, causing the gun to malfunction. Plus, if you need it in a hurry, you don't wan t to be performing a juggling act. Takes my wife 5 minutes to find her keys in that bottomless pit she calls a purse. And she's going to put a gun in there? I don't think so.
