IS this available?
Please help me find a gun that fits my criteria.
Looking for a compact 9mm, by compact something that can be ccw but also have relatively high capacity (12 to 15rounds) in the smallest package possible.
Has to have a rail and can be purchased with a Threaded barrell OR an aftermarket threaded barrel is easily available to purchase.
So far, all I got is the Glock 19. There are the Sig Elite Darks, but they seem very expensive. Any others you can think of?

I would add CZ to the list. I have the SP01 and love it, but it's a hoss. There are several medium/compact models available including the new P07.
A google query implies that threaded barrels are available for some models but you would need to confirm before making a purchase.
Edit: Oh yeah, there's also the XD line.

I don't know about a threaded barrel option, but, the Ruger SR9 is very concealable, thin and has a 17+1 capacity. Fairly light and if you shop around, can be found for under $400.

maybe a Sig P250c? I know they are available with threaded barrels, and I love mine...

You can't go wrong with either the Glock 17 or Ruger SR9. The G17 is a tad more expensive than the Ruger. The Ruger at $400 (-/+) a little you do have several options to consider.
You should go to a local gun store and handle each of these handguns. See which one feels the most comfortable in your hand.

Heckler-Koch (HK), either the USP Compact or the P30 might be an option. Both have 13+ rds, integrated light rail. HK has threaded bbls. Unknown if either handles it, but wouldn't be surprised. Both are under 7" in length, so they're relatively compact. But they're ~7" in length and relative "fat" in the grip, since 13+ rds takes a lot of space.
BTW, I've got a CZ P-01. 14rds with an integrated rail. Unknown if a threaded bbl is available as an option. Can't imagine the CZ 75 series has lived so long and doesn't have a threaded bbl available.

CZ75 P-01, 14+1 rounds, alloy frame, buiult tough and are accurate. MSRP is about $670. most places I've seen them are selling them for about $600.

I bought my wife (uhum, myself) a Springfield XD9 subcompact that I believe meets that criteria. I paid $500 used, but in excellent condition.

The Glock 19 is the best overall option IMHO. However..maybe look at the p229, the CZs have really gathered steam lately and seem to be a really good weapon. However for ease of use, capacity and overall value, I gotta say go Glock.

The Glock 19 is hard to beat. You may also want to consider the S&W M&P9c. It is smaller than the G19 and a little larger than the G26, has a capacity of 12+1, and a threaded barrel can be had through Storm Lake.
I find the M&P9c to be more concealable than the G19 and much more ergonomic. But like Isaid, it is hard to beat the G19. If I were to own only one handgun, the G19 would be it.

H&K P2000 would meet that criteria. Small, tight and ultra reliable.
The H&K P2000SK is even smaller but only 10 rds.....size for capacity. Its always a trade-off
Either way, you cant go wrong

I agree. My Ruger SR9, while not the most showy or desired gun, has been very reliable and easy to carry. Would I like a Sig? Sure, but for the money, SR9 is great.

I have a Taurus PT111 Pro. It holds 12+1 and it very easy to conceal. Reliable little handgun, never had an issue with it.
