Default Help me narrow the field

I'm getting ready to purchase another CCW, and I would appreciate suggestions. I know what I want, but I'd hate to pass up a good gun because I didn't think about it before I make my purchase. I'm looking for something fairly compact in at least 9mm. Weight and length are not issues, but I would like to keep the height to a minimum. I want something with a hammer and a SA/DA trigger with a decocker so I can carry with one in the chamber, safety off, and a double action first trigger pull. Price is an issue, but I'm not ruling anything out based on MSRP, since I'm willing to be patient and do a little wheeling and dealing to get the gun I really want. So far I'm looking at the beretta px4 storm compact, the bersa thunder UC, and the CZ 75 compact. Any other suggestions?

Bersa. Available in compact 9mm (13+1), hi-capacity 9mm (17+1), compact .40S&W (10+1), hi-capacity .40S&W (13+1) & compact .45ACP (7+1). Price range $400-$450 & if you find a good deal, maybe less. The 9mm's & .45s are getting the rep for being Bersa's best.

Just picked on of these up in 9mm today. I haven't shot it yet but I like how it feels and the trigger is pretty nice as well. I can't wait to shoot it.

Thanks sonic. The 239 is just what I'm looking for. Hopefully I can get my hands on a few of the ones on my list at the gun show tomorrow.

Pretty thick and not MY first choice for CCDW, but they are nice.

For sure, as soon as I take it to the range I'll post up a full range report.
