    9mm or .38 special are good choices.

    Punch the BG in the face as you pull the trigger with the .25apc Baretta!!

    It took me a second to realize you were asking which "one" you should carry, not that was your list of carry weapons....silly me. Just kidding
    Any of those, including 4 are okay. Although admittedly I would only use 4 as a bug really.

    Carry whatever works for you...the key word being carry. Now that you have your license put it to good use. Once you decide on a weapon, practice, practice and practice some more...and not just regular range work...get yourself some good self defense combat training.

    With the choices you have I would go with the S&W 5906

    I like your S&W 5906. I have one with 17-round Mecgar mags for it. I'd carry it, plus a backup revolver for the other hand.

    Dang it, Dave... I had that same thought when I read the thread title!! Now I have to read and reply "seriously."

    rhrocket -- Of the four choices given... I'd go with the S&W M&P9 Compact as my personal choice. Great fit, good capacity for a "compact" and the M&Ps are phenomenal pistols. I was very close to buying one when I was looking for my own carry weapon.

    The Kahrs I've seen have been either really neat (but very expensive) or seemed very cheap (I'd buy a Kel-Tec instead), the PPK, even in .380, is an older and heavier gun lacking in capacity and power when compared with more modern 9mm compacts, and the Beretta is, well, yeah.

    Take this as just another bit of Internet advise and it's just my $.02... I carry a Glock.
