Yeah, I second the Ruger SR40C. slim and accurate. Has a mag safety, a trigger safety, a manual safety and a load indicator. What more do you want? Don't say, "I just want a glock" I'll smack you

The SR40C is a good gun, no doubt. But take a look at the S&W M&P Shield 40 as well. Crazy slim, very ergonomic, has a manual safety and shoots like a larger heavier gun. Plus the 40's are much easier to find than the 9mm version. The aftermarket for the Shield is growing daily as well with lots of mags, holsters and sight options available.

Only problem with that particular handgun is availability. Basically, at the current time, I've seen many people looking for them and very few finding them. That new Springfield XDs is nice to, for about $500.

Stoeger couger, beretta px4 subcompact, cz75 compact, jericho 941 compact or semi compact, ruger sr40c taurus 24/7 compact taurus pt140 all are nice and in different price ranges but generally affordable

I agree with some of the comments but it all comes down to a reliable pistol. You don't need a safety when the times comes a safety will get you hurt

If your trying to stay larger caliber, the Springfield XDS is a good choice, as well as the M&P shield .40.

I've been looking at the Kahr CM9, but check out the CM40 if you're wanting a .40 cal. They're pocket guns.

I own a CW9 and I wouldn't call it a pocket hubby any stretch. Ya it's small, but has no safety as this guy was asking.

A CW9 is bigger. A CM9 has a shorter barrel, slide and a shorter grip. All in all it's smaller than my PF9 KelTec, except slightly thicker. But yes, it has no safety that I'm aware of.
