9mm is very popular. Lots of guns available. And it's known to be a "softer" shoot at the range. I have one and it is for me.
It is also the US military issue ammo ... used with the Beretta M9 (M92 civilian model) ... Has been the military's weapon since the 1980's. Gage from that it's effectiveness.
The 9mm cartridge is also one of the cheapest to buy.
There are some advantages to the 9mm.

Kahr cw or pm 40 could be an option, or Glock 23 or 27. And also Ruger sr40c. They're all gonna be good for conceal carry. Not too fond of the xds because of their grip safety but to each his own.

Hi jon I also am new to the pistol world. My first pistol was a m&p .40 it is crazy accurate and for a first timer it is easy to take apart and clean. I also have a cz sp01 phantom. It's cz polymer .9mm. That thang just melt in my hand man. If you can find a cz I sure wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

I've got a G27 and it is a good size, albeit a bit thick. Shoots fine, but I put the pinkie rest on the mag for a little more control. I do have big hands though. I also have an S&W L-frame 7-shot scandium (Mountain Light) revolver that is lighter and probably just as concealable. I tend to carry that more often than the Glock.

I agree. Have had my G27 for 12 years and still carry it every day. Just shot it Saturday. Have never had any malfunctions. I to use a small mag extension for better grip (pierce I think). Great carry gun IMO.
