Personally I like carrying my Sig P290.

I would look at the smith & wesson airweight revolver. Or the bodyguard. Neither are 9mm but both are my favorite pocket pistols. They are so small, slim, and light weight you hardly know they are on you.


My G27 Baby Glock is hands down my favorite pistol. But it's to fat to jog with.

Big vote for Beretta PX4 Storm Sub Compact.

Heart if a big gun, and features to match, in a sub compact.

Drfootball, You are correct I veered off course. I just meant overall thoughts on the bodyguard

I had a glock 27 for cc and i recently bought a ruger lc9 since it was so slim. I took it to the range yesterday and first shots were way off, but once I got the excitement of shooting my new gun and used to the trigger I was loving the gun.

Yes,..as i have said several times, the trigger does involve some "getting used to"...now have over 1K rounds through mine with only a small amt. of FTE & FTF's.... It will eat any Ball Ammo you put through it. If you want to put HP's through it expect a few Jams here & there. Manual warns against "+P" ammo as a steady diet,..but I have put a few Hornady Critical Defense rounds through it...shoots good groups out to 30'(10Yds.)...more then acceptable for EDC....

The "best" 9MM pistol is the one you have on you when you need it that you actually know how to use because you have enough training to do so. I wouldn't get too wrapped around the axle with good/better/best.

There are pistols that are dimensionally smaller like the Boberg XR9, but that pistol has certain types of ammo that work with it and certain types that don't.

Is it possible to re-work your concealment system for the pistol you already have?

If you like your Glock, why change the weapon if a better or different holster will be more comfortable?
