    I'm looking for 9mm Single Stack CCW pistol. I've got a j-frame, but I'm looking for a thin flat pistol.

    A thin flat 9mm pistol with
    1. No manual safety
    2. Big enough to get a decent grip - Kahr PM9 is too small
    3. Prefer no useless things like locks, lci, magazine disconnnects but not necessarily deal breakers.

    The usual things like reliability, shootability, recoil, weight, etc are taken for granted.

    My main choices so far are Walther PPS, Kahr CW9, and Keltec PF9
     
  2. your first 2 are my choices in the order you have them listed...look at the Sig 239 also

    Beretta Nano. Look for latest build SN. Around $399.

    Another vote for the P239. I love mine and carry it daily. It has been a very reliable gun, and is easy to shoot while still being concealable.

    Walther PPS. It is what a Glock would be like if they made a singlr stack 9mm.

    I'd keep an eye out for the Bersa BP9CC as well.

    I carry a P239 as well.Great gun.However, if the OP wants a slim single stack I would not recommend it as the slide is quite thick.

    PPS is a great gun, if you're used to shooting a J-frame though you might consider a Kahr since the triggers will be more similar.

    Kahr P or CW9, Beretta Nano, Walther PPS. Own or have owned all four. All great pistols currently carry the NANO. Cant go wrong with any of them IMO.

    Kahr K9 or Sig 239.

    I would have no reservations about throwing a S&W 3913 into the mix, but he ruled out manual safetys............

    I would 2nd the PPS if I were spending your money. However, if I were spending my money, I would buy the CW9 (actually bought a PM9). Several friends have them, and they work quite well.

    I wouldn't have any qualms about using a PF-9 for defense use if that is all I could spend, but if you have the money, these other suggestions would be much preferred.

    Do try the Beretta Nano if you can find one. The grip isn't any longer than the PM's, but it's circumference is longer than the PM's, so it might work for you. It will be smaller than the PPS, PF9 or CW9.

    I would also agree w/3rdgen40 about the Sig P239. It is as thick and as heavy as the popular double-stack polymer handguns, while providing less capacity.
     
  13. My primary carry is a Sig 239 SAS DAK in 9mm. It's perfect for what you want.

    I was looking for a slim 9mm and settled on a CW9. I'm very happy with it.
     
  15. Another vote for the Sig P239. I have one in 9mm and love it.
