I have not had any "thin" 9mm pistols not do their thing when I pulled the trigger. I specifically like the Kahr cm9. I had a p938 but prefer the Kahr over it.

Hey isn't there a thin version from Glock? Or am I being retarded?
Not sure is there a slim Glock?
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.

did some research! all i can find from glock on slim line is a .45auto nothing in a smaller caliber. that answers both our pondering minds!
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.
