    I'd go with Glock since you've added that to your list of choices. I'm familiar with them (G23) & I know they're reliable as well as having a larger ammo capacity. I'm not saying your other choices are not reliable, though.

    Whichever one you have the greatest accuracy with. If you’re going to make a blind purchase without testing either one, my choice would be the S&W 642. This has the best record.

    I own a S&W 442nl and have shot the PF9. I love pocket carrying my 442. My buddy carries his PF9 daily and would not trade it. Either would fill the bill. It is a matter of personal preference as to function and number of rounds on board!

    I am a S&W type of guy but if you have the opportunity for a Glock 26, I'd select that over the other two because

    1. PF9's hurt to shoot and shooting a lot is key to being prepared. I don't like how they hurt so I sold mine.

    2. The 642 is very limited in number of rounds. I just can't see myself using a revolver as my EDC simply because I feel more likely to be able to handle reloading under stress with a magazine rather than a revolver speed loader and, I wouldn't have to reload so soon.

    3. The Glock 26 is, from my experience shooting one, very accurate, a little thick but not bad for carry and Glocks are known for being more reliable than a PF9 as a general rule (and there may be exceptions, of course).

    Get the KT P11 instead of the pf9. Its a little heavier at 14.5oz and has a double stack mags so the grip is wider and easier to control. Trigger is very much like a a revolver in that is stages. Same price too.
