If your looking for something reliable that carries really well take a look at Kahr. There mags are single stack and no ext safety , if you don't mind that you can carry it comfortably iwb. I have an XDSC .40 , it can be concealed but not as easily or comfortably as a Kahr which is my wifes but I carry it sometimes. Good luck

I've carried a Kahr PM 9 for 4 years know. Would not hesitate to trust a PM 40 but I'd probably opt for the CM 40 and save $200. Kinda wish the CM's had been out when I dropped $609.00 on my PM. It's nice and all but I did not really need the polygonal rifling in a subcompact.

Tack

IMHO, the SIG P239 is the best way to go. I love that legendary quality that SIG offers.

Church, this thread is getting some age on it. Have you made a choice? If not, some .40's to look at that won't send you to the poor farm:
CZ 2075 RAMI, 8+1 capacity, 3"barrel, DA/SA, 6.5" long, 4.75" high. $625
Taurus PT-140, 10+1 capacity, 3.3" barrel, striker fired, 6.1" long, 5" high, $400.
Taurus PT-940, 10+1 capacity, 3.875" barrel, DA/SA, 7" long, 5" high. $500
Stoeger 8040 Cougar, 11+1 capacity, 3.6" barrel, DA/SA, 7" long, 5.5" high, $425.

The CZ 2075 can fit into a pocket (holster), the Taurus PT-140 is a little bulky for a pocket. The Taurus PT-940 is not a pocket gun, but it's short, double-stacked grip conceals well in a belt holster under a loose shirt. The Stoeger 8040 is a little bit long in the grip, but works well under a jacket in cool weather.
