I've had a Walther PPS I loved and should have never gotten rid of, currently have a Glock 19 which is little harder to carry with my body type.
I was looking at options for single stack 9mm's with decent triggers. That's usually *MY* biggest gripe with pistols. I had an LCP which the trigger was horrible (imo) on. I did not enjoy the trigger on the LC9...too long while dry firing anyway.
What are some good options on there that have a decent trigger? The PPS is great but cost is kind of up there though, little too large to pocket carry anyway. I may be forced to get one while there's a $50 rebate out.
All opinions appreciated!

I left the Sig P239 off the list because 1 - You said cost was a concern and 2. If as wide as the glock.

LC9 with the mag disconnect removed and about 500 pulls on the trigger to get it nice and polished and smooth.
its a SD gun. so long as the trigger works and is not terrible----practice till you can hit the target as needed
and use the gun for what it is. i am not spending more than a K-T pf9 cost by $200 or more to have a 'nice trigger'
now if money is not a criteria...go wild & have fun with a rhomberg

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
The Ruger LC9 is not a bad shooter at all. It doesn't shoot as well for me as the Walther PPS, but it is a ton cheaper.

i have a Taurus PT709 which isnt quite as small as the lcps and such it has worked great for me only about 50 rounds thru it though and the price wasnt too bad

Kahrs have some of the best triggers,try the pm or cm series either would work for you..
I really like the trigger in my Taurus 709 also.
Kahr CW9 will work for you.

I don't really like the trigger on the LC9. I hear the CM9 is the best trigger you can get for the price.
I love my Taurus PT709. 1800 flawless rounds with no failures of any kind and still going. It's a very fun gun to shoot and super easy to carry. I pocket carry mine a lot, but I also don't wear super tight 70s disco pants either.

Had a Kel Teck PF9 and did not like the trigger, some one else has it now.
The Glock 36 is a single stack 45acp and carries very well for me with a much better trigger.

I love only that which they defend.
