Which of the "slim" compact carry guns.....

do you prefer and why? I'm looking at adding one of the newer "slim" compact pistols to my collection. When I say "slim", I mean less than 1" thick in width. I would be open to both 9mm and .380 acp. Most of all, I care about shootability. Wouldn't want to shoot a 9mm in a super compact, lightweight set up if it is not controllable. This will be primarily for CCW.

Try a SIG Sauer P938, with the Hogue wrap around rubber grip.

I agree with the gun, but the grip is unnessesary to make the gun easily controlable, as it is fine with any of the grips. The extended 7 round mag helps a lot more though.

yep, I like people looking for a slim grip pistol AND then put a grip sleeve on.

And those grips get sticky...
My extended mag tends to misfeed. Haven't had that problem with with the shorter mag.

Nice looking gun, but I can't justify it for the price. I know it's a Sig, but it's almost double the price of a Shield. With the extended magazine, it's basically the same size as the Shield with the flush magazine.

I went the 938 Extreme for the Hogue G-10 Grips - I really like the combination of purchase with the fine front and back strap and the grip. It is easy to shoot and does not feel like its getting away from me during sustained fire.

The trigger was good out the box - but it did smooth out after about 250 rounds.

I don't like S&W's DA/SA automatics (same as I don't like anybody's DA/SA autos), but other than that, I can't imagine a gun person not like S&W. Why?

The M&P Shield is the best shooter. I like it better than the LCP, buthands down the LCP is the easiest to conceal, but not shoot.

All these slim 9mm have proven to be reliable. The LC9 has the least desirable trigger of the bunch with the long double action pull. The Ruger, Sig and S&W have manual safety levers and Springfield's grip safety are issues for some people. I prefer to have the option. For my particular requirements, the Sig is carried most often during my daily routine. I'll probably trade the LC9 for lack of use.

BTW, I carry a full size gun when traveling into unfamiliar areas and for home defense.

Bersa BP9cc. Uncluttered design, great grip ergos, great trigger with a super short reset, common sight design, tennifer treated slide & barrel, cool OD green color, lifetime service contract all for under $400. This is my second ss nine and had I handled one first I would have purchased the Bersa as opposed to the other model.
