    Thinnest 9mm is the Diamondback DB9 at .80inches thick and a little over 15ounces fully loaded 6+1. Just a tad larger than the Ruger LCP. God Bless

    The option of carrying with the 10 shot mag, or slapping in the 17 round mag at the range/for the nightstand was attractive to me as well. The latter also effectively turns it it into an SR9, with a full size grip. 500 rounds through mine without a single hiccup.

    I happen to really like my sr9c. This gun is my carry gun. It isn't as thin or a light as others and not as easy to conceal. I stopped carrying the 709 because I didn't like the recoil on it. This doesn't make it a bad gun just not quite the gun for me at this time.

    M&P Shield, the Nano, LC9, Kahr. Even the Kel-Tec PF9 has a huge following & Sig & Walther has some excellent ones. There comes a point where it's just personal preference.

    With most of them, the differences in physical size is measured with a micrometer, so everyone has a different opinion as to which one conceals slightly better than the other. The same goes for accuracy, which basically means, they are all "combat accurate" enough for the intended purpose.

    So,as far as I'm concerned, you're at the point where you're just splitting hairs between the choices above. They all have good performance and overall reliability. They all seem to have their own little quirks as well.

    I don't think you'll go wrong with any of those. I have the Shield and feel lucky I got one when I did. It's been a great shooter, and carries very effectively whether it's used as a back-up gun or your primary weapon.

    This is probably not a lot of help, but maybe gives you a different perspective to look at.

    The only "slim" Glock I am aware of is the Glock 30. Being a .45 it is still quite wide however. I never understood why Glock hasn't made a single stack 9mm.

    Glock 36 is the single stack 36... the 30 is their "sub compact" dbl stack .45 ACP.

    I just remembered that and came back to correct myself. You are correct of course. I used to own both. Wasn't crazy about the 36. Liked the 30 better but prefer H&K now.

    To get back on topic I will add the Springfield EMP as my favorite slim 9mm. That being said I think 1911's or any gun with a manual safety are only for those who will train regularly and visit the range on a consistent basis. I also like the Kahr MK9 or PM9. The MK9 is the better shooter of the two Kahrs. Lower recoil and much better trigger. The EMP is hard to beat for accuracy and a great trigger. Doesn't fit in everyone's budget though.

    I'm shooting my kahr cm9 for the first time tomorrow. Hopefully, it performs well. I used to own a Shield, but didn't like the grip length or manual safety.

    I picked up a taurus 709 slim. Like previous poster mentioned, some love it and some dislike taurus. I wanted a striker fired with a safety. I wanted a shield but impossible to find. The 709 is s perfect size for me. Lifetime warranty that goes with the gun if you sell.

    I am torn between the M&P Shield and a Walther PPS 9mm. Price difference vs. which I can find.
