Out of your choices, I'd pick the P9. I have a CW9 and to be perfectly honest, I'd pick it over the P9. They are basically identical guns except the CW9 has regular rifling, instead of polygonal rifling and the CW9 sights aren't as easily changed. The CW9 was under $400, compared to the $600+ for the P9. It wasn't worth the $200+ difference, to me...

I got my carry permit at the start of this year and purchased a P11 to use as my main carry gun.
It functioned %100 right out of the box and I was very happy with it. It is a hard gun to shoot accurately due to the long and heavy trigger pull.
I got a great deal on a Glock 19 and have now started carrying that as my EDC. It really is not that much harder to conceal than the P11 with a good IWB holster, and is much easier to shoot accurately.
But you would be well served with the P11.
