    1st Choice: G27
    2nd Choice: G27 w/ 9mm conversion barrel
    3rd Choice: G26

    The more I carry, and the more I shoot, and shoot, and shoot. I am convinced that Glock is the ultimate defense handgun.

    FWIW, the Walther recalls were NOT with the PPS. I carry one, though it's a .40.

    Glocks are wildly popular, they're just not for me.

    I've heard good things about the Keltec 9mm's, from their owners. My wife and I have a P32and P3AT, respectively, and they have been flawless. Their customer service is top-notch.

    There's my $.02. Notice I didn't make a recommendation? Ok, here it goes: find a range that rents/friend that loans, and find out which work for you. I don't think you'll go wrong with anything on your list.

    EDIT: Oh, yeah, slide width is a factor, but a good belt/holster combo can mitigate that.

    You have the Kahr as 6.5 inches, it's much smaller than that at 5.3inches.

    I vote kahr

    I like my Springfield XD-9 Sub-Compact, with its 13+1 capacity (comes also with a 16 round magazine too) and the extra safety feature of a pistol grip safety like the 1911s.

    I carry a Wilson CQB Compact for accuracy, reliablity, and the .45ACP ammo. Sometimes I carry a G26 for accuracy, reliabilty, and the 9MM +P ammo.

    I would much rather carry a larger CCW with an effective holster & belt, that to see how small/covert I can go on the firearm. IMHO, Top priority is to pick the CCW you can shoot & handle well, and then research & decide the best way to conceal THAT handgun.

    For the safety reasons you have stated, I also prefer the XD SC format (either 9mm or 40SW). However, he has omitted that as well as many other fine pistols as one of his choices. Because he mentions Kel-Tec, he apparently also is considering the super lightweights, in which case he may want to look into the 380 caliber such as the Ruger LCP.

    Of the guns on your list I own the G26 and the PF9
    the PF9 conceals better but the reliability of the
    Glock ,plus the fact that it shoots better and hold more
    rounds makes it my EDC.

    General Rules of Thumb. Easier to carry & conceal ~ harder to shoot, lower capacity, less stopping power. Easier to shoot ~ harder to carry & conceal, higher capacity, more stopping power. Between these lay the compromise on which every single member of this forum eventually decides. Me? GLOCK G19 & custom Browning HP (.357 SIG). You? Should (of course) wisely agree...with ME!
