You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
I've shot a SR9c and it is a compact, lightweight, great shooting gun. Since you already have a 9mm, one ammo stock.
I have a S&W 442 (38) and a Ruger SP101 (357) snubbies, good summer carries. The LCR is a very good light 38 snub. Advantages to the snubs is with your other revolvers you wouldn't have to stock another caliber of ammo.

Try a Kahr P9...very slim and natural feeling in the hand.

Given your choices, I think the 1911 would be the slimmest and therefore the easiest to carry. All the guns you mention are quite heavy, but, all good guns.
Crossbreed Supertuck for IWB or there are many choices from makers like Galco, Fist etc. for OWB carry.
Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!
I would go with one of two: the 1911 and the PF9.
The PF9 makes a great gun that's lightweight, accurate and easy to conceal.
If you're going to get a 1911 though, I would advise one that's compact rather than full size. While a 1911 is thinner than most service pistols due to the single stack, the weight can be a factor. If you can afford it, I'd look at Kimber's line of aluminum guns and perhaps consider their pro-carry or ultra-carry series.
