Have you looked into the XDS? Hard to find but if you can get your hands on one you it would be a great gun. I've had mine for a couple of months now and it is a great pistol. 3.3" barrel and it is only 1" wide making it super easy to conceal. A lot of folks say that they are afraid that the recoil would be too much to handle but it isn't. Springfield did a really nice job designing the XDS and the recoil isn't too bad. Shooting +P a bunch will have you feeling harsh recoil but it will do that in most guns.
