    I must agree with sigmanluke. I Carry a Sig P239 and it is very confortable. It is totally reliable. It shoots and feels like a larger gun (low recoil becauase of the weight), and it is very accurate. Quick follow up shots are easy and accurate. With a good holster it should be very confortable.

    That Sig P290 looks awesome! (for me). I am looking for a smaller 9mm. Thanks for the tip.

    I simply can't believe that nobody has yet mentioned the Springfield Armory EMP. Kimber and Wilson also make single stack 9's on 1911 frames.......

    I would have picked the Keltec PM9 but you tossed it out.
    The Walther PPS is a TOTALLY different design than other walthers, and it's well tested by consumers now.

    I did not vote because I really haven't researched these guns before, let alone shot one.

    However, I would probably lean towards the Walther or one of the Kahrs. I would have to do research and at a very minimum hold them and go through their manual of arms. And of course would prefer to shoot them as well.

    I would also consider the new Ruger LC9 after having the opportunity to closely scrutinize it.

    I voted for the CW9 as it is the closest thing to my all-time favorite carry gun, the Kahr P9. To ME, the two most important criteria for a carry weapon are thickness and weight. The P9 is thin, light, accurate and dependable.

    The Sig 239, already mentioned several times, is a fine pistol. I have a P239 SAS Gen 2 and enjoy shooting it. However, besides being thick and heavy it has a DA/SA trigger. For many years, I carried one of two DA/SA semi-autos. After training that emphasized both accuracy and speed (in that order), I concluded that the DA/SA trigger was an unnecessary and undesirable compromise. For defensive use, I strongly recommend SA, DAO or striker-fired pistols over DA/SA choices.

    I voted for the LC9 though the MK9 which isn't on the list is an awful good gun but Kahr's cost 50% more than the competition. That said, I'm 5'-8" tall, 170 lbs, and I can carry a Glock 26 no problem in a CrossBreed SuperTuck. I'm on the list for the first LC9 that comes into my local dealer for days when summer clothes might make the 26 harder to pack than the LC9 but I want more than the LCP. My "gun for when nothing else conceals" is an LCP.

    The Taurus 709 is a POS. Not accurate, feeds poorly. Great form factor - feels great in your hand and has all the bells and whistles, but I'm trading mine in ASAP.

    My vote's for the Kahr CW9. I've had one for years and I love it. Great shooter, and easily concealable. The trigger is fantastic IMO.

    I had a Kahr PM9 and CW45. both jammed uncontrollably. Kahr CS was spectacularly unhelpful, so no more Kahr's for me. I'm looking at the Kimber Solo ( I have already had a chance to handle one, and I love it.), Sig P290, and Ruger LC9.

    my Kahr CW9 has been excellent in every way since June of '09. So far a pretty low round count (847 to be exact), but not the first malfunction of any kind. I will buy the CM9 (compact version of the CW9) when it's available this Spring.

    I carry a PPS every day but I'm also a huge fan of Sig Sauers and have a P6 (among many other Sigs) that is a great shooter too.

    I prefer the double / single action triggers on Sigs but the PPS is a great buy, is VERY slim and very accurate also.

    What are the chances you'll be able to test fire the ones you like the way they feel/handle? At least the Elite, PPS, 709S then you may be surprised at the decision "almost" made for yourself * So let us know the outcome
