Is there a gun that is a single stack 9mm that is extremely reliable? I'm not talking about guns that are mostly reliable but require 3 trips back to the company to be in working order. I mean, out of the box flat out reliable.
From what I have read it seems that the Walther PPS has an extremely low number of reliability complaints. Same goes for CZ. What about the XDs? That seems to be an amazing option but I have read quite a few reports on reliability issues with that firearm.
I am looking for a slim sub-compact 9mm as my first carry gun. I am a total gun noob so I want something that is going to work out of the box and be reliable. Any suggestions?
I do realize that people on the internet are most likely to be discussing reliability problems and 99% of gun owners who have reliable guns don't post on the internet. However, it is clear that glock is reliable and some other firearms are not. Kahr comes to mind, with the majority who absolutely love them but a good amount of people who had multiple Kahr's and every one had major malfunctions. That is not something I want to even consider if I am having to use a gun in self defense.
