Kimber Micro 9
Ruger EC9S or LC9S

Walter PPS m1. I got a good deal on it shortly after it was introduced. It works fine and is plenty accurate.

I have both a Shield 1.0 and the P365. I got into a small 9mm for the weight and size as compared to my usual Volkmann Combatant Carry. My initial choices had been between the Shield and Springfield XDS. I felt them up at the Cabela's gun counter one day and decided on the Shield for the fit to my hand. Cabela's had a sale and a separate promotion going on, so I bought it there. Great little gun.
Then, my wife went and bought a Sig 938. I shot it and loved it. I even bought one for myself, but I have never shot or carried it.
I casually picked up a P365 a few years later and bought it on the spot. The fit to my hand, coupled with more ammo on board made it irresistible. I still like it for those reasons as well as for the ease of shooting it. I've shot the Shield, the 938 and the P365 side by side and the P365 won out overall. I carry it when I don't carry my .45.

My micro 9 is a KelTec PF9.
Don't carry it often, but it sees duty on occasion. Fits nicely in my pocket with a DeSantis holster.

I don't own a 9mm "micro", but you put PPS on the list. I have that in .40 S&W.
Why? Because if I only have 6 rounds, I want them to be big and heavy. If I carry 9mm, I will carry a lot of them.
The PPS shoots like a compact with the medium magazine. It doesn't conceal much better with the flush, small magazine. It feels nearly full size with the large mag as a reload. This makes the PPS feel like a bigger gun.
KelTec PF9 with the Northwoods trigger. It's snappy, but dependable and easily concealed.
For my daily carry itís a Springfield EMP 3Ē; it is flawlessly reliable, the weight is in all the right places and it shoots circles around my wifeís G43.
With that being said, I shot a very interesting gun a couple of weeks ago I think is going to really eat into the pocket pistol market, that would be the Sig P365 SAS. While it doesnít have the trigger my EMP has it is very good for a striker fired pistol, and has a higher capacity to boot.
And it is superbly accurate. It will be my next purchase when the funds are available.
