What about S&W Shield 9? Anyone have any experience with that?

I really like the pocket Sigs, but they are definatly outside of my price range... Maybe someday.

Seriously. If your looking for a pocket size ccw, look at the Ruger LCP and the Taurus TCP. If you want 9mm, the Ruger LC9 and the Taurus PT709. All of these are affordable and reliable ccw. My ccw is the PT740 and sometimes I just drop it in my pocket and go. I've never had a FTF or jam of any kind even though I've put both good and pretty low budget ammo thru it.

The only thing that makes me unsure of the Ruger is the magazine disconnect. I really don't like that at all.

Great gun, but I'm not comfortable carrying a light SAO trigger in my pocket.

If you really want a small weapon, consider a .380. Like the Walther PPK/S/

Been carrying a Kahr PM9 for the last 5 years.

I don't like pocket carry myself so I tuck it plus 1 BUM in a belly band and wear it just like an ITP holster.

Very comfy with easy access...

Jim's CM9... for all intents and purposes... is the same gun for 2 bills less. Really good buy.

Good Luck

Tack

I have a Sig P938 and a Kimber SOLO I would carry any day of the week for CC. I also sometimes carry a Springer XDs but it is a 45acp but I read that they are coming out with a 9mm. Great pistols and extremely reliable.

While it was on the heavy side, I carried a Beretta Nano in my pocket. It was a tad too much though. I am considering a Kahr CM9 if I can find one. Until then, I carry an NAA Guardian .380 ACP.
