    Here are the requirements I came up with for my upcoming purchase.
    1. 9mm
    2. single stack
    3. no more than 1.2" width
    4. must be able to pocket carry cause it's too damn hot to be walking around with a double stack .40 IWB in Louisiana!

    Let's here what you guys think.

    Still research and check out the Sig. It is a single stack 9mm concealed carry pistol.

    Sig p290rs... Very small, 6 round flat plate with little pinky lip and comes with 8 round extended mag, laser (there's option for one), dao so it's safe to have in pocket, no safety. It's marginally larger than a kahr p380 but it's a 9mm. Tilt barrel helps with reducing the recoil of the 9mm as opposed to having a blowback like in most pocket pistols (more specifically 380s). Also, great warranty (lifetime i believe). I'm waiting to find one at a good price so I can snatch one up myself.

    I have the Kel tec 9mm with belt clip kit. I slip it in between my belt and pants. It lays so flat you can wear a t-shirt and it will not print.

    Another vote for the CM9 by Kahr. I can pocket carry with a pocket holster in every pair of pants or shorts I own. Great reliable gun.

    Is the trigger exposed at all? That could ruin your day

    I like my cm9 but if I were to upgrade to that price range id have to go with the p938 over the pm9. I don't know what it is about those lil sigs but I really hope to have one someday

    Take a look at the Beretta Nano. I love mine. I don't pocket carry it but you may.
