    I've shot the PM9, but it just didn't feel right in my hand because it was too small. Comparing it to the dimensions of the Sig P239 that's coming out, I think the 239 will be too small for me, too. Believe me, though, after shooting my friend's Sig, I would really love to get one some point down the road - it was such a pleasure to shoot.

    I figured the PPS would win out, but I just haven't dedicated as much research to it as many of the other guns I listed. What kind of trigger does it have?

    The P290 is the new Sig 9mm comming out. The P239 is larger, click the link I gave you.

    I could love a 239 DAK. There a tad thick for a single stack but it's a sweet gun.

    Ditto for me. However, if Glock came out with a single stack nine then I would also be of the same opinion of the OP and that would be my choice hands down.

    My bad. Meant to quote Snowman. I've certainly taken serious look at the p239, and it's still a consideration. If I start getting into that width-range, though, I'd probably go for a Glock 26 or something else with a larger mag capacity.

    The one I'm wearing now isn't on there either, the Kahr P9. It's the only one I can speak for and would get my vote. It's more comfortable in a King-Tuk than my LCP in that Fist kydex holster.

    Tough to beat a Kahr. Many choices here to tailor to your individual needs. The K9 is rock solid so I voted for it. I carry a P9 though. I really like the 9mm Kahrs, they all shoot well and are so easy to conceal. I like the Kahr trigger over all the other choices. The Walther is a good choice too.

    I voted CW9. My friend recently bought one and I was really surprised after shooting it. Seems like a solid all around pistol.

    Just FYI but the S&W 3913 has been called one of the best single stack 9mm guns out there. You might want to give them a look.

    I've heard about that one and it certainly caught my interest! Are they still being produced? If not, it still looks like you can find them used for pretty cheap. If I find a pair for $350 a piece that'd equal 1 Kahr K9 Elite.....definitely something to think about. Raleigh is having their quarterly Dixie Gun and Knife Show at the fairgrounds this weekend, so I may lead myself into temptation and pay a visit.

    Here's the trend I'm noticing with the K9, PPS, and CW9 - everyone who has bought one of these in the past couple of years has been happy with their choice. Looks like I can't go wrong if I pick either the K9 or the PPS. I understand the PPS is DAO, but some comments I've seen in the past say it's a fairly heavy pull...is this true?

    I chose the CW9 for the price, because I wanted to try the Kahr line of pistols as inexpensively as possible. Until I saw how well they carried and shot. Man, I am not disappointed! Over 1,000 rounds with no problems after the first two magazines. One failure to eject in each of the first two magazines. After that flawless! I am not a revolver shooter, so I have had to work on my double action skills, but the Kahr line has the smoothest long double action trigger I have shot. The pistol is light, 21 ounces with 7+1, compact, thin, and reliable! After shooting for years, trying many pistols I love the CW9 and it is my carry pistol! Which ever model you buy you will not be sorry!

    I have a KelTec PF9 and I have no complaints about it. But if I had the money at the time of purchase, I would have picked up a PPS.

    The stainless Kahr's are very nice pistols.
    Nice lookinng weapon been trying to decide on the pm9 thats 8 ounces less and a little cheaper the SS MK9, I do like the looks of SS
