    If I was looking at a PM9....... I would change my mind and quickly buy a CM9.........

    (I did)

    The +$250 you saved (minus my fee......:) ) would go to buy more ammo..... or something else fun

    I pocket carry the CM9 without a problem. The differences between a PM9 and CM9 is
    almost negligible for a defensive handgun.

    Just be aware. Regardless of size, a pocket carry will NEVER be as fast to draw as a would a draw with a good IWB holster.

    I will also chime in and say that a 9mm is the absolute minimum caliber I would ever consider going out with. Most of my carry is with an M&P 45 compact.

    The question to ask yourself..... WHAT IF I ONLY GET ONE SHOT? ... What if the BG is shooting back at me?

    Do I want a small bullet or larger bullet in that case?

    (Many CCW encounters are 1-3 shots)

    What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?

    I think you should go with your heart. I know that you may like the PM9 if you go with that, but you're still going to want the Seecamp and wonder if you made the right choice. It's hard to veto your heart on matters like this.

    Thanks, it's almost like buying a Harley. Your mind is saying buy a Japanese cruiser, they are more reliable, powerful and handle better. But your heart keeps going back to a HOG. Then again a +p 9mm may save your life though.

    Not if you are walking with your hand already in your pocket and on the gun.

    If you're considering a PM9, then your "deep cover" requirement must not be TOO deep. It's a great, very compact 9mm, but not in the same size class as the micro .380's. The Seecamp is a lot of bucks for a pretty slight concealment advantage over an LCP or a P3AT (and it's heavier). I'd say, if you can accommodate the size of the Kahr, get it. If not, look at an LCP or P3AT. If concealment is the #1 criterion and you're rolling in dough, get the Seecamp.

    Just my opinion, FWIW...

    Regards,
    Jim

    JMO, and I didn't read all the post so if it has been mentioned already I'll just say that I second it.

    I read somewhere a while back that the SC's are designed to run pretty much on one type of round and any deviation could result in reliability issues.. I don't know this to be factual, but when I was reading up on um, that was the general consensus. I don't have the PM9, but I do have the CM9 and to date I have yet to experience any malfunctions using the three main types of SD ammo that I sport.. Just something to ponder. Good luck with your choice.

    The SC is a awesome looking pocket pistol BTW...

    Since you started it...
    Bet you haven't owned both a Harley and a Japanese cruiser. If so, you'd know that Harleys (these days) are just as reliable, if not more so, than the imports. Granted, the Japanese bikes are more powerful. Handling? There's a reason the Shriners use Electra-Glides for their riding exhibitions!
    Most Harley riders who switched from Japanese bikes would never go back. Every Japanese cruiser rider I know who ever had a Harley wishes he still did. OK - 'Nuff said.

    Yep, owned a 95 Heritage, 93 Yamaha Vmax and 08 Yamaha Raider. That's why I said what I did.

    OK - I stand corrected on the "bet you haven't owned both" part. But I stand by my comments on reliability and handling.

    So, when are you going to upgrade to your next Harley?

    Apologies to all for hijacking the thread - I'll shut up now.

    LOL here. Go with what fits best in your hands. Next would be your budget and what you feel is the best bang for your buck.
    I know, at one point in time, if you had a problem with your Seecamp, Larry would let you come to the shop/facility, and he/they would work on it as you waited. Now THAT'S true customer service.
    I'm sure things at Seecamp may have changed a bit, but one thing holds true today. If it doesn't work right, Seecamp WILL make it work right. I have owned a couple Seecamps in the past. Wish I had em now for the money I paid for em.

    IMO for deep cover and a BUG a seecamp is the way to go if you can afford it. Thats a great little gun, I wish I had kept mine..
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    I like my kel Tec P32 for being lighter, thinner. I run a silver tip in the barrel then rest all hardball. It is in my front pocket now sitting in a hedley leather holster.
