This is a discussion on Thinking out loud: In search of The Perfect Carry Gun within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I agree with Smitty901, the Ruger SR9c is a great carry gun. In a Crossbreed IWB it just about disappears....

If I was going to pick one, I'd go with my Gen4 Glock 23. I've got two other choices though with the Gen 4 G27 and Beretta Nano. Each fits with different clothing choices, and the Nano will work in the front pocket of cargo shorts.
I had a 23, and as a new CWL citizen, I was not comfortable with the size, printing, etc. I got a 27 to complement the Glock 23.
The same is happening to you. First, a great holster can hide anything and you need to dress around your gun.
Next, get a gun that is close to the gun you're most comfortable shooting. Most likely, the holster and mags will fit.
Although the Kahr is small, you're sacrificing your confidence and capacity. Although the PPS is an awesome gun, its magazine release is different and may be foreign to you. I don't recommend that either, unless you're willing to learn how to shoot and reload it with a spare magazine.
A Glock 36 is a single stack 45 but it's only 6+1. It is as thick and long as a Glock 23 (40 cal that does 13+1) or a G19 (9 mm, 15+1).
Stick with the M&P or get a smaller version of it.

Just get a G 29 and be done with it. JK
check out that walther pps?
good mate with the walther ppq.
one for deep concealed carry, one for compact concealed carry.
The PPQ seems to be a highly recommended gun. I am still a Glock fan, but why not give it a try?
