    I was looking for some opinions on a deep concealment carry weapon I know that there are already threads about ccw but I'm looking for little reliable and stopping power. I already have an m&p .45 compact for my current carry weapon. But what to carry when it CAN'T be noticeable at all!!!

    Kahr PM 9 or CM 9

    I've carried my PM 9 for the last 5 hears of my 16 years off CCW.

    Better Stopping power than any "noisy cricket" caliber

    Uber concealable at under 1" wide and 4" tall YET large enough to hold in a propper shooting grip.

    Tack

    Amen. Excellent gun, somewhat familiar platform for the original poster. It can be carried just about any which way. In summer shorts and a light shirt it'll carry well in an IWB holster or belly band. I like the belly band for mine.

    Yup I figured he should go with something he already knows and I'm pretty sure this is the exact reason they designed the m&p shield.

    Can I ask a question without coming off as bashing poly guns but...................hasn't the whole argument to go with these guns has been based on capacity?

    The Shield is a single stack with six rounds?? :confused:

    I'm glad you guys have come around to a true concealed carry gun but you should realy look at the 1911 Commander. It has 8 rounds! :rolleyes::cool:

    My Shield is 8+1, with 7rds in the extra mag. Very shootable with even the stouter 9mm loads.

    My personal subcompact carry preferences are 6+ rounds of at least 9mm power, in a light and compact package. I like to dress and travel light whenever possible.

    I have a serious question? Why deep concealment? Are you going under cover? I'm being serious. I thought the whole idea of carrying for self defense was to have a weapon that you could actually get to quickly. If you have time to go digging for your gun that would pretty much rule out self defense. Again I'm not trying to piss in your post toasties. It just seems to me that with all these mouse guns and talk of deep concealment the whole idea of carrying seems to be less about self defense and more about hide and seek. I don't get it. :confused:
