Default Concealable single stack 9mm..

I am looking for a light compact (not a sub compact) 9mm. I really just want a quality single stack concealable 9mm that has some comfort in mind. Suggestions? Also, we can all list our favorites but I have discovered quite a few models are sold out, below are some of the ones I am considering if they weren't sold out or on mega back order..

-Kahr CW9 (could get ahold of one)
-Sig 225 P6 (one in stock nearby but its pretty worn)
-Sig p239 (?)
-Kimber Solo (last made early 2012, can be hard to get)

How about a Sig P938?

I guess I should have been more specific, like to keep the cost under or around 600. That is a nice gun though, would prefer slightly larger, which I know sounds funny when it comes to compacts but I want to be able to grip it well. I do like the option of single or double action but in this instance would prefer an internal striker, but would take all suggestions or reasoning otherwise.

I like the S&W Shield, has a nice thin profile, it will probably be my ccw when I find one in stock. My buddy just picked one up for his wife. You can get them in 9 or 40

I have a Kahr CM9. Great gun. Very concealable. Nice shooter too.

I second the recommendation of the S&W Shield. I bought one the day they were released and it has proven itself worthy time and time again. I also have a Ruger LC9 with Galloway Trigger and extra power recoil spring. Also a very capable gun. I still think the old S&W 3rd gens are some of the best compact guns ever made. They are out of production but still readily available (3913, 3914, 908, etc.). Other striker fired options include the Walther PPS, Beretta Nano, Kahr CW9, etc. I am sure any of them would serve you well.

From your list I would select the Kahr CW9, even though I am not a fan of their triggers. The Sigs are pretty thick for a single stack gun (in comparison) and the Solo has a lot of mixed reviews. Might have the bugs worked out by now though.

I am digging my Beretta Nano. It's .90" thick about 20 oz loaded, 6+1, very manageable recoil, relatively accurate and this far has proven 100% reliable...well it's a Beretta!
I carry it in an Old Faithful IWB holster and its very comfortable. It's worth a look.

How's the trigger on that? I'm going to look at one today hopefully. I'm torn between the CM9, CM40, Kimber SOLO and one of the small Glocks.

The Kahr CW and CM are great for being on a budget. I held a CW9 today and I really like the feel. DAO is nice as well for CC.
