I wish HK and Kahr would merge and produce a Heckler Kahr P9, T9, TP9, or K9. I'm salivating.
    I agree 99%. All except the mag release.

    It seems the TP9 is a gun that has gone very under the radar as there is very little information (at least that I can find) on the various forums around.

    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.

    Somewhere out there.
    The PPQ seems to be a highly recommended gun. I am still a Glock fan, but why not give it a try?
