    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

    The 686 is the gun i used when i took my CCW class/test. Great gun... guess I'm old-school/ wheel-gun fan. I'll try to CC it.
    Thanks

    The LCR is probably the best(especially the trigger) out of the box on the market right now for a revolver.

    I have no experience with the PF9.

    you COULD look at the Glock 36 its the ONLY Glock id bother owning thats because its narrower than the standard big fat glock one size fits all grips. Only Glock that fit my hands right.
    I carry a XD40sc a lot IWB. Love the gun!!! If you want to stick with a caliber you already have, the XD9sc is the same size. Never tried the M&P.

    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.
