    I am 5'6" with an athletic build and manage a P228 with problems.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    My wife isn't quite as small as Lima, but she's far from large- 5'4 115 pounds. She carried a Sig 229 every day. You don't have to go for a tiny gun, you just need good gear and you can hide just about anything. Just to prove a point she carried a 50AE Desert Eagle on a trip to a mall in Tampa not too long ago. Nobody knew she had a weapon.

    As a big Walther fan, I'll say grab a PPS, it's very slim, comfortable to carry, and a great shooter. It's a bit hefty, but I personally love that, a little extra weight on a subcompact does recoil good.

    I'm 5'7" 140lbs, slim waist. I carry an FNX-9. Awesome gun, easily concealable and inexpensive to shoot.

    Why is it that when a thread states "I don't want a Glock, Remora, Revolver, etc." that the first posts are trying to convince the original poster that they are wrong and should reconsider their choices? There are so many choices in guns, holsters, and ammo that if someone doesn't want a particular brand or style there are plenty of other good choices despite what Glock owners say. Just ranting.

    Im kinda small myself. And while others have recomended slim single stack 9mms or 40's. I have the S&W m&p9mm compact.And its size is just about perfect. Not much bigger than the single stacks and holds more rounds and they will accept full size 17 round mags. And the more I shoot it the more I like it. But if you can try several different guns to see what you might like best.

    I think it's more that people are saying it to keep the op's mind open. I didn't like the Glock I was issued when I got it, but I have grown to love it's functionality and ergonomics.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Awe man, can't believe I read through all these pages on such a worn out topic. Then you (thunder 71), had to post that . . . . SO GREAT!!! LOL!!! I swear I have shouted some of those same statements made in the video - "like holding a dag gum 2x4!!!". That was soooo great.

    You know these threads just prove how choosing a gun is such a personal thing. Kinda like picking out a vehicle, lots of variety for lots of different reasons. I tend to think like this - get what you think is best for you now, its probably gonna be something different down the road anyways.
