Kahr K9 7+1.

Very smooth, long trigger pull. 100% reliable with a variety of ammo and the most accurate carry gun I have ever shot.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Anyone have any experience with the Ruger LC9 or LC380?

the smallest I can shoot well is my PM9. my 3953 is noticeably thinner than my G26. I still carry my G26 more because it is shorter than the S&W and holds more ammo on tap than the Kahr.

Recall or not, I still love my XDs 9mm. Had no problems with it before I sent it in, and have had none since I got it back.

I use the LC9, like it a lot due to its small size, laser (I have crimson trace one) and comfort to carry. I have a G26 also, which I use as my BUG gun in IDPA but it is not nearly as small or comfortable to CC as the LC9. I shoot better with the G26 for sure (the G17 is my full size competition gun making the transition easier), but I have practiced a lot with the LC9 at the range, mostly with the laser, and feel I can get on target effectively even with the long trigger pull. The bigger reason for shooting better with the G26 vs LC9 for me is not the long pull trigger, I got used to that quick, it is harder to grip due it being so thin vs the G26.

How are quick follow up shots with the LC9? Easy to get back on target, or does the muzzle flip make it harder to control? I also have the G26 which I carry mostly OWB with the proper clothing. However, I've never been able to carry comfortably IWB with it. Was wanting to get something thinner for the warmer weather coming up so I can dress accordingly.

On the LC9, follow shots are easy, the trick is practice, a lot. The trigger is very long, reset is basically only when the trigger is fully released, so very different from the G26. But you will find the slack point quick with practice. So I fire, pull the trigger to take up slack, pause while refining my sights for follow up, so the trigger pull once on target is not much.

A lot thinner and more compact than the other models mentioned also. I included a pic of mine next to my XDs for comparison.

Does that gun have a grip safety?

Are you looking for a gun for waistband carry only, or do you want one that can be pocket carried as well? I like my CM9, almost as easy to shoot as my G26, and recoil is pretty much the same, even with +P ammo. I prefer to carry it in a paddle holster, but it can be pocket carried in large pockets. Planning on getting a CW380 for pocket carry when I find one. If you're not going to pocket carry the Shield, CW9, and BP9cc are all good choices. The PPS isn't a bad gun either, though more expensive than the others, and I'm not a fan of removing the backstrap or it moving out of place disabling the gun.

I will be different: I love my Taurus PT740SS Slim. 6+1 in .40 S&W. I added a CT laser and extended grips to it. I pocket carry and also IWB tuckable and it just disappears. Over 500 rounds through it now and not a single problem firing. It's as reliable as my G19. I have a dual mag IWB tuckable to carry 2 spares.

I recently bought a CM9. I love it. I pocket carry it and would not want to go any bigger. I rented an LC9 and it was ok but the CM9 trigger is way better.

CW9 is the same size with a much better trigger, and less felt recoil. LC9 has a LONG trigger pull, manual safety, and magazine disconnect safety. Personally I consider those negatives, but some people like them. LC380 is the same plus weaker round and much more expensive ammo in the same size gun. If you want a manual safety I'd definitely go with the Shield over the Rugers, again better trigger and less felt recoil/muzzle flip.

Walther PPS 9mm

I've seriously considered a Walther PPS 9mm.
And own a Kahr MK40 Elite.

But low capacity guns tend to give me the heebie jeebies.
It's not a slim single stack gun.
But my HK P2000SK 357 Sig is my go to sub compact.
I carry that more than anything else.
And 9+1 is where I start to feel comfortable capacity wise.

My PPS rides with me as my EDC more than any other.

its hard to feel someone else's experience with a firearm, everyone has their own expectation of what it should be like.
years ago, when a friend handed me his Glock 27, I emptied one mag and told him it was a little beast. I was shooting a Colt series 70, it was like comparing Cadillac to a shortbed pick-up truck. but after several small 9's and coming to the realization that my carry gun needed to be thin and small I accepted the fact that recoil and noise are part of the game. my point being, most any gun can be mastered with practice and the desire to be in control of our own destiny. pick a gun that feels comfortable and practice carrying, drawing and shooting.
