    What are some notably thin FULL SIZED 9mm autoloaders for ccw

    I carry a glock 34 most of the time and have a couple of revolvers on hand for day to day ccw. However I'm looking for the next purchase.

    Not being a fan of compact or sub compact pistols I'd like to know what you guys recommendations are for notably thin (in terms of carry) profile full sized or near full sized 9mm's. My dream gun is a safe to carry Tokarev but that seems to be more a fantasy than anything.

    1911 pattern 9mms will be pretty thin.

    the T9 and the TP9 have 4" barrels and are single stacks with pretty narrow necks at the top of the grip. I don't own either of them but I've shot a T9 a fair amount and it was pretty nice. 7+1/8+1 with extension. similar size to G19 I'd guess but I'm not sure.

    Closest thing I can suggest would be a Walther PPS in 9mm with the largest capacity of their mags.

    My Sig P6 (P225) is pretty thin & it is a 9mm. Granted, it is a single stack.

    If I were to carry a full size 9mm, I'd opt for a CZ75B.

    The Ruger SR9 has fairly thin grips.

    Beretta 92.
    The compact Type M is single stack but a 92 compact is like a full size pistol from other brands. :)

    I carry my full size 92 all day...

    My opinion are the following:

    Keltec P11 - Approx. 1 inch thick and can hold 12+1 or 13+1 with extension
    Springfield Armory XD9 subcompact - approx. 1 inch thick and can hold 13+1 or 14+1 with Pearce +1 extension

    I hope this hellps. God Bless

    I am not familiar with the Tokarov other then seeing it in pictures. But I would like to know why it is an unsafe gun to carry?

    As far as thin guns go, I would say the Browning Hi-Power.

    If you can carry a Glock 34 then the Hi-Power will be easy for you to carry.

    Slipping on my gun bashing helmet....... I carry a Taurus Pt740 / it is 40 cal, but the 709 is the same as the 40 and it is very compact, and it is not called the slim series for nothing. I have close to 500 rounds without the first hiccup out of my 40 .... the sole purpose I bought the gun was size, i slip it in a remora holster and you can almost forget it is there.
