Wrong section. Repost this under the Concealed carry section or the general handgun section and you will get some good info.

Are you looking to stay with a 9mm?

A Springfield XD9 Compact or Sub-compact should be around $500. +/-

A new Stoeger Cougar is in that price range, which is actually a Turkish built Beretta Cougar if you are loyal to the brand.
There's also a Beretta 8045 that's a Cougar chambered in .45 ACP. I had one and it was a very good pistol.
(The Cougar line is all compacts)

I haven't handled one, but the Bersa Thunder 9 comes in under $400.

If you're willing to buy something used, $500. will get you a pretty wide variety of pistols in 9mm.

Something sub compact under $500???
Any Keltec, Taurus 709, Taurus 24/7 Subcompact, Taurus Millenium, Bersa Thunder 380, Besra Thunder Ultracompact, Ruger LCP, CZ-83, Kahr CW...
Have you ever considered a revolver?...
Taurus 85UL, Rossi 351, Charter Undercover, Taurus 850CIA, Taurus 605, Ruger SP101, some S&W snubbies can be found under $500 too...

I would go with a single stack. I carry a Kahr PM9. New is over your amount. I paid $595 for mine . Used is very hard to find but I have seen them out there. The Kahr CW9 is a good choice and new it's around $440.

I, too, carry the PM9. I got it used for around $500. However, there are so many little things you have to buy to carry a gun every day that you may want to consider the KelTec PF9. It is very light. NutNFancy gives it great reviews on YouTube. And you can still purchase a few boxes of ammo and a holster for $500.

Used, though, might be the best idea for $500.
