    I really like my LC9. Seems like the best of many worlds.

    Love my LC9, especially after removing the mag disconnect.

    I really like my Kahr PM9, but I don't think you can go wrong with the LC9 either.

    In your configuration, if money were no object, there is the slightly pimped version of the PM9:

    Browning hi power

    It is metal, very accurate, full size and bad ass.

    But I'm guessing you aren't talking about carrying a full size gun.... So I guess next would be a commander frame 1911 chambered in 9mm.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I think I would like to try a Kimber Stainless Raptor II or the Stainless Gold Match II based on feel and funactionality. Too rich for my blood right now but they sure feels good in my hand.

    The PM9 is the best possible answer but I also think the P9 is not that much bigger and such a great feeling gun.

    The LC9 is much bigger than the LCP and I dont trust stuff when it just came out.

    Para Carry 9 or A Sig P225.

    No-brainer for me: Springfield Armory EMP (No, I don't own one, but probably will at some point. If it could be converted to 9x23 like both my Ultra Aegis guns have been, I'd likely already own two.)

    Just realized, the OP asked why: To begin with, it is 1911-based, so it will either have a nice trigger, or can easily be made to have one. Because it is 1911-based, it will point correctly for me, and most likely, will work every time. If it doesn't, I know how to make it work. It is very small and flat. The controls are in the right places, and are the right size. According to people I know and trust, their EMPs are a joy to shoot, are very controllable, and are quite accurate.
