I am becoming a fan again of the small concealed handgun. I am considering a small hideout gun for a possible tuckable holster. I am leaning towards a J Frame, a Kahr PM9, P9 or Glock 26/27. I am already a fan of the GLOCK and know all about them. I know the attributes of a J and will prob get one eventally anyway.
Now what I wanna know is what are the pro/cons of the PM9 vs the P9? I am pretty experienced with SD guns and am not scared of a new weapon. Just think they feel great in the hand and sem to have a following here.

I prefer the Glock 26... excellent size, reliability, and accuracy.

I'll chime in for the Glock-26, also...a great concealment sidearm.

Tuckable belt carry
If you're going to carry this gun on the belt in a tuckable holster, I think you want a very thin gun with a short "two finger" grip to minimize printing on your shirt. That would make the Kahr PM9 the best alternative of those you mentioned. The Glocks are thicker and make more of a bulge, the J frame revolver (with boot grips) is not bad but has a cylinder bulge, and the Kahr P9 has a longer grip that is more likely to print.
And if you decide to go with the PM9, why not consider the all steel version the MK9? Since it is belt carry the extra weight won't really matter, but makes the gun much easier to shoot well. I have a MK9 and a tuckable Comp-Tac 2 o'clock holster which work well in this role. But I must admit that I don't usually tuck the shirt in but simply use it as an inside the waistband holster with a cover garment. Tucking slows down your draw quite a bit, although it offers good concealment.

Go to this poll to check out general opinions about some of the more popular concealable guns. Personally, I purchased a Glock 26 with Trijicon sites and one magazine with grip extender. I am 6'" and 240 lbs and found this gun fun and accurate to shoot, and fits my hand with or without the grip. I carry without extender, for concealability, and practice shooting with and without. SHoot very well either way. Very happy with my Glock 26!

all three will make a great carry gun. i carry either the glock 27 and/or a s&w model 60. i would pick the gun that you like the best.

I have a CW9 which is basically a P9 with standard rifling instead of the polygonal rifling and is around $400. I carry it in an MTAC and am very happy with it.
