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.

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.

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.

The new Glock 42 is small, light weight, thin and very accurate. It's 3/4 inch longer than the Ruger LCP (bottom left).


Any of these are a inch wide or less, except the top three, Glock 26/33, Beretta PX4 sub compact, top middle and the CZ RAMI, top right.

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.

After doing a lot of reading and handling multiple other guns, I decided to get a PM9. I think I made the correct decision.

Can I shoot it as well as my G19? no.
Can I shoot it well enough for a micro-CCW? yes.

I was going to recommend the 938. I know it cost a bit more but it's a great gun. Factory night sights and as accurate as guns 2-3x it's size. 6+1 rounds of 9mm in a package the size of most wallets. A lot thinner and more compact than the other models mentioned also. I included a pic of mine next to my XDs for comparison.

This (mine is a CM9). I'll admit I'm not nearly as accurate with it as with my G26, but sometimes the dress just doesn't allow that to be truly, completely concealed. I don't think there is a gun out there that most of us can shoot as accurately as a 26/19.
