    Ruger LC9 would be my vote. Reliable, shoots well. What more would you want?

    Glock 26 (9mm), shot one today. You get small size carry and full size impact plus rock solid reliability. You can abuse Glocks and even shoot them underwater. All the pros I spoke with said forget about .380s.

    You might want to find some new "pros", nothing wrong with a .380 for a pocket gun. The reason I responded with a 9mm, is because that is what the OP asked for.

    I guess I forgot the PF9 and LC9, but the Glock is far from a "micro" 9mm!

    I agree with the Glock-26 when you consider all the options (size, capacity (takes the 19 and 17 mags) weight, accuracy and reliability)..if you really want a small 9 why/how could you choose anything else. None of your choices even comes close.

    Not sure how "micro" you need it to be. I've got a Glock 26 (9mm) and a LCP (.380). I carry the Glock when I can which is a lot but not every day. Its just a little to big for every occasion. So I fall back on my LCP when need be. So to make a long story long...I will give a vote for the Glock 26 as long as its not your only choice.

    When I hear the word "micro", that means "pocket sized" to me. Several guns listed in your poll really aren't small enough for easy pocket carry in my opinion.

    Of the guns you listed, I have experience with 4: the Solo, the 938, the XDS 9, and the Shield.

    The Solo and the first 938 were traded off due to reliability problems. My husband is debating keeping the second 938 just to have a micro option, although it, too, has had it's share of failures.

    I have a 9 mm Shield and it's been fairly problem free. My husband just got an XDS 9 mm and after 250 rounds fired, it's been absolutely flawless with a variety of ammo. It's a VERY nice shooter, too.

    But I wouldn't call the Shield and XDS "micro" guns.

    I am guessing the OP was only referring to single stack pistols which is what all of the guns in the poll are and why the G26 wasn't included. Maybe its about time Glock got in on the action and see that concealed carry is a pretty big phenomenon in these times we are living and come up with their own single stack wonder. There are many examples of companies who fail to adapt to change and end up getting left behind.

    Shot most ofyour list kept the shield, shoots like a full size feeds great not really for pocket carry but disapears in a summer special

    I have wondered the same about Glock. By the time they get around to it, the market is going to be saturated with single stack striker fired polymer guns...

    If the OP is really asking about single stack carry guns, rather than pocket pistols, I'd have to add the Walther PPS (9 mm) to the consideration list. It's another very nice shooter for it's size.

    Still can't understand why the LC9 isn't on that list. It's a much better gun than most of those listed.

    None of the above.

    LC9 really should be on the list. I rarely carry my in deference to my LCR but the LC9 is still a good gun.

    The Glock is a one of a kind gun, but it is not small by any means... even the 26/27/33
