CDNN Sports has the SR9C for $350 w free whipping right now.
The grip on those always seems really long - how does it compare with a G19?
EDIT: Typo, CDNN is offering free shipping, but it wouldn't surprise me if some of you weirdos were looking forward to that free whipping...

The Shield is hard to beat for a light, reliable, extremely concealable, accurate single stack. I have both the 9mm and the .40 . I carry the .40 a lot !! I've said it before and I'll say it again.....the Shield is the J Frame of the future !!!

Never much cared for the look of Ruger pistols...But they keep turning them out and have
what appears to be great customer service.
Would give the new Sig P365 a look. More capacity than shield and about same size if not smaller. MSRP is $599. but by waiting awhile and getting on sale might be a little over $450.
I never fired a Shield but I can say unequivocally the 2 Walthers I do own have incredible trigger pulls and grips that fit like a glove.

There are several of these comparison videos on his channel. My wife chose the LC9s Pro for her carry pistol. We both shoot it better than any other pistol we own without the mag extension. The take down is a little different, but not complicated. Couple hundred rounds through it without a single malfunction.
I'm sure the others are nice too. Came down to feel in the hand for her (even with her big hands and long fingers).

Not sure about the nines but my shield 45 magazines are single stack.
Thanks for all the feedback. Hopefully I'll be feeling better next week and can see what I can locate locally to lay hands on. Some suggested the Ruger Security 9 and that one has me interested after looking into it. I'm not a big hurry, so have time to look around.
We sure are lucky to have so many options! While it tends to complicate things, some problems are worth having. ;)

My vote would be for a Sig P290RS. Mine with night sights was just over $400 but at one time you could find the contrast sight version for about $300. If you bought the version with only one mag they could be found for under $300. I finally managed to get one side by side with a shield to play with the triggers and chose the Sig hands down. Too bad Sig has discontinued them.
I own a Walther PPS M2 and absolutely love it. Easy to shoot accurately, low recoil, and easy to carry.
One potential con I read about online about the hinged trigger is that if your finger is too high, it won't activate the hinge and disengage the safety. I was able to intentionally reproduce this behavior, but had to try to make it happen. I never experienced a failure to perform the trigger pull while normally firing it at the range.
I'm keeping my 3914, but the Shield is my new CC. The only thing I've noticed is that the stippling is a little rough against bare skin on my hip.
