    Walther PPS is only .91 inches thick. Among the thinnest, if not the thinnest, single stack HIGH QUALITY 9mm pistol. I absolutely love mine. Kel_Tecs are slim but can not even begin to compare to the quality of the Walther.

    My vote is the Glock 26. I want it, I must have it...I will own it.

    Just another vote for PM9. The slightly shorter grip (with small mag) and barrel make it a slightly easier carry than CW9 and its very light as well. With the extended mag in the grip is much better but I find I shoot just as well with my pinky wrapping the bottom (I know this annoys some people - hard to avoid on 4" grip). A somewhat expensive gun but well worth it I believe.

    Recoil is surprisingly manageable considering the weight and travel. It does not seem much worse than a full size XD9 for example. My only complaint is lack of any passive trigger safety such as the Glock has - but it does take a good long pull.

    I had a Kel Tec PF9, hated it, sold it and upgraded to my Glock 19. Sometimes I wish I still had it to carry, but not to shoot. It is hard to beat for the money, but it is NOT a range gun!

    I have a PPS and I agree with the above. I do like mine a lot, though I HATE the magazine release (part of the trigger guard). Ambi-dextrous and all but it is my biggest gripe about it, though it doesn't stop me from carrying it.

    I'll add my opinion that you can't go wrong with the G26. That's my primary CC weapon. I also have the Kel-Tec P-11. I haven't qualified it so I can't CC it yet. I plan on keeping my KT for a BU gun if the need arises. So far I've had not bad experiences with the KT P-11.

    Again, you can't go wrong with a G26! Mine is in the picture to the left!

    My vote is for the Walther PPS.
    next choice would be a Kahr.
    If you want a very lightweight 9
    get the KT PF-9

    Walther PPS. It's my EDC... just got through the 1500 round mark with it this weekend.

    Zero issues so far. Love it.

    Hadn't seen one of my favorite 9mm carries listed: The Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro.
    Small, compact... I usually forget I'm even wearing it in an IWB at about 2:30.

    The PM9 is actually smaller (not by much) than the PF-9, and much higher quality. If you can't afford a Rohrbaugh, get a PM9.

    I'll second or third or whatever we are up to on the PF9. I like mine though I cannot front pocket carry it, just doesn;t work for me. I do carry it IWB in a tuckable holster. I will also second it is not a range gun but has shot fine for me.

    If you already have a pocket pistol in 380 I would personally look at a G26 or G19 type gun for IWB, I prefer single stacks so I will have to go ahead and say 1911, SIG, G small frame etc...

    I carry a Kahr Arms P9. The Kahr line of 9mm's are designed to be carry guns.
