    What is the best sub compact (9MM) for CC?

    I am learning a lot of information from this forum, thanks for offering the information. My question is, I am looking for a sc in 9MM. I have looked at the PX4SC, plus some others. I want to have a "d" configuration, plus the ability to have hi cap mags. I have always carried Beretta, but I am looking for advice from the knowledgeable group here on this forum. Any advice you can provide would be appreciated..

    Thanks,
    GK (Vokell)

    If I didn't have an opinion I would say a P9 by Kahr.

    I'd say Kahr too, but no hicaps... Other than that, the Glock wins pretty easy.

    For me, the best has been the Smith & Wesson M&P compact. However, what suits me may not suit you.

    I would say CZ RAMI

    G26 with a close 2nd- S&W M&P9C. Glock has cheaper mags, for what that's worth.

    9mm subcompacts

    If the 9mm subcompact must have higher capacity, I'd say the Glock 26 is the safe bet. It has been around long enough to have the bugs worked out, and it is reasonably priced.

    If small size is more important than high capacity, I'd go with a single stack like a Kahr or the Walther PPS.

    Glock26, but I love Glocks so I may be a little biased.

    IMO: Walther 9mm PPS or any caliber Glock sub-compact (I prefer the pinky ext mag).

    "Question... What type of bear is best?.... FALSE a black bear is best."

    Sorry for the pointless Office reference sometimes I just cant help myself.

    On to more relevant matters I have to vote for the M&P on this one. I have a Glock 29 (10mm subcompact) and an M&P9c and it just fits my hand the best. To be honest though you really cant go wrong with any of the big three (Glock, Smith, Springfield) Try them out and get the one that is the most comfortable for you.

    The best is one you will carry!

    That said...Kahr CW9/PM9, Glock 26 or 19 would be my choice.
