Hey pogo, whose grips are those and do they work with speed loaders?
I also think a Kahr PM9 is an outstanding choice. It may be a bit more touchy out of the box but I think their quality is far better today then when they first introduced the PM9. And if you have problems they'll get it running right and then you have a real compact 9mm. I've never fired one but would expect to to be down right snappy!
Then again I have the 642 and that's a bit snappy too!
I think you probably have the best two choices right there. I'm sure some will suggest a small .380 like the Ruger LCP or Keltec P3AT but if you can get by with the size of the PM9 or 642, I think you'll have a better package.
