I'm liking my S&W Shield a whole lot. They're under $450. Ruger's LC9 is solid, but the similarly sized Shield shoots and handles like a fuller framed gun for me. That's what I'm after for carry...disappears like a micro, handles like a medium framed gun.

Depends on what you want though. The Sig 938 and Walther PPS would also be worth a look in the single-stack category. And if double-stacks work for you, well...the possibilities are endless. Most of the poly companies offer decent compacts and subcompacts. And the alloy CZ 2075 RAMI is a thing of beauty.

I have narrowed it down to two contestants the S&W Shield and the Walther PPS 9.

Check out the Walther P99. I carry one everyday in a bladetech IWB. I've heard bad about the PPS. Just an opinion.

I would also agree, try out a few if you can get your hands on some. I to love my sig 226. I have the platinum elite, and she shoots like an angel. But, i like the beretta 92 and have heard great things about the px4 storm. In all honesty, it solely depends all on the shooter. Just holding a gun and squeezing the trigger while it's unloaded can speak volumes to the shooter. If it doesn't feel right or natural chances are it is not going to. Different grips can change the feel of a gun, but personally I feel more comfortable knowing the gun feels right as it is, rather then take a chance that new grips will make the fire arm feel right.

I have ruger sr9c. I love it. Has 10 round clip for conceal carry and 17 round clip which works great for range or home defense. However they are hard to find I had to wait a month on mine. I have small hands and was hard to find a good feeling gun. The glocks were to wide for me.

I'd be cautious about the Browning Hi-Power because it was originally designed for ball ammo. Even if it is throated for hollowpoints, it still lacks the direct feed of, for example, the Glock .
