Easiest for me to CCW is my 6906 9mm, see avatar, great grip, super reliable, 13 with one in the tube or I can slide in my model 59 mags that hold 15. That said the Smith 59 is awesome as well designed after the 39 for Navy SOs in 1970. I like it because of capacity, feel, and it has a hammer to cock were the 6906 does not. What I have been carrying lately is a Walther P99 AS in .40, love the AS trigger, decocker, capacity and German reliability.

If you don't consider a 1911 thin the no, there isn't.

I would go with the Kahr TP9 or the Walther PPQ the latter may not be the thinnest but it carries thin and is a very nice shooting gun. The ergonomics for me are the best the trigger is unbelievable great reset and capacity is really good. The size of the two guns is just about the same the TP45 is slightly thinner but I cannot tell the difference during IWB carry. The curves of the PPQ actually are better for carry than the sharper edges of the Kahr TP45. Capacity the PPQ is far greater than the Kahr. Price wise the are very close. Accuracy the PPQ wins hands down. Double taps are easier and the slow rate fire the PPQ is better then the Kahr. If Walther made a single stack 45 I would buy it. But considering we are talking 9s i have one and carry it more the TP kahr. Now if I want smaller the Kahr wins that race. CW9 and a CM9 much smaller guns. Hope this helps. Good luck with your choice and make sure you shoot allot.
In addition the the P-35, CZ75, and 1911 I'll add the Smith 3913 and Sig P210 which is also a beautiful and accurate pistol.
it alI depends on if you want a da/sa or if you prefer striker fire, i prefer da/sa, i have a sig p226 with hi cap mag, and a h&k usp, out of these 2 i prefer the sig but its a matter of preference, to give the best advice id say go to a range that rents full size handguns and see what you like
Beretta 92F, The Ruger SR9, Ruger P95, Springfield are some.
Ruger SR9 is a slim gun. I don't consider the Beretta 92, the Ruger P95 or any of the Springfield XD's to be slim. Quite the opposite.
My M&P 9 with a 4.25 barrel has a thin grip.
S&W 3913 (DA/SA) or 3953 (DAO).

I would say look into the 9mm 1911s
If you like the Tokarev look into a used STAR brand 1911 style gun

Book: "Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."
The reasons for Tokarev's not being safe to carry are:
1. They are not very drop safe. They have a free floating firing pin and can go off on impact when dropped.
2. They typically have hard to use tacked on safeties that usually just block the trigger not the hammer.
Other than those factors they are wonderful range guns or field guns (in a good flap holster) that shoot a fast flat round.
I agree that for a thin full size gun take a look at the SR9. I don't consider any Kahr to be full sized since at max they hold 8+1 rounds. I want 15+ in any full sized 9mm.
