    I know it's not on your list but I am pretty darned impressed with my keltec PF 9, and the price is right. It's so thin and small it fits in a front pocket beautifully.

    Of the group you selected I would choose the G26. While I do no own one I have shot the G26 and compared it to other sub-compact pistols. I have an XD9sc and the G26 is more compact than the XD. I carry a Kahr CW9 and favor it over my other pistols for CCW. Good luck in your search!

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Not on your list but I say the new Ruger LC9 if your looking for a "Sub-Compact".

    Although not an option in your poll, I carry/recommend the Springfield XD9SC everyday and it's a fine weapon.

    Only one of the guns listed is a true subcompact, though. So you have basically already made your decision, unless you want to also consider chopped down versions of full size pistols, which is what all the rest really are.

    Several others you should consider:

    Ones I own:
    Bersa Thunder 9 ultra compact - awesome, reliable, durable, great shooter. Long rails, thick construction components and 13+1 capacity. I rarely carry 9mm anymore, but when I do it is this one.
    Taurus PT709 - I have 1500 flawless rounds through mine, thin, light, accurate, and fun to shoot. Great for deep concealment
    Springer XD sub compact (mine is in .40 and it is super sweet) - VERY accurate, nice sights, reliable

    Ones I do not own but really like, in order of my preference:
    CZ Rami
    Ruger LC9
    Kel Tec PF9


    Of the ones on your list, I like the HK. There are smaller 9mm on the market that are reliable and less expensive.

    +1 This says it all. But only from your list.

    There are a bunch of new slim and small 9mm subcompacts out there that you should check into before deciding.
