    I was planning on a G26 but with my thin build I am now leaning towards a single stack. A couple that I have considered are the Kahr CM9 and Kimber Solo. Anything else out there worth considering? I know this is a Glock forum but thOught I could get some unbiased opinions.

    I bought my wife a ruger lc9, it is very concealable. But I don't like it because it's not a Glock.

    Single stack, small, concealed carry on a belt?
    I have a Kahr MK40 Elite for that role.
    It's ~25 oz all stainless steel gun with a glassy DAO trigger.
    Low bore axis and weight makes it easy to shoot 40 cal with.
    Very reliable and accurate for a 3.0" barrel gun.
    Plus Speer GDHP 155 gr have been chronograph-ed
    at about 1150 fps and 450 E.
    It's only a six shooter though.
    And I carry two 6 round extended mag reloads.

    if i am going to buy a single stack for concealed carry other then a pocket pistol, its going to be a 45acp....the new xdm s looks pretty cool, its 5+1 45 acp in a 3 1/2 " barrel....very small and very powerful....

    Kahrs are great ccw pistols. I prefer carrying them over my G19 or other double stack pistols.
    I currently have a Kahr K9, P9, and a CM9.
    All have been 100% reliable with any make of JHP or FMJ I have put through them. Of the three, I prefer the CM9.
    Carry with a 6 round magazine and carry a 7 round or 8 round magazine as a spare. It can go from IWB to pocket carry a whim.
    I prefer Federal HST 147gr +p for carry

    Be sure to take a look at the Walther PPS. Thin and very flat. You can shoot it all day long unlike some of the other slim 9's. It's not a pocket pistol though.

    I alternate my off-duty carry guns between my Kahr PM9 and my Glock 30sf. In my opinion you can't go wrong with the Kahr. They are a little more expensive than a Glock, but totally worth it due to the lightweight and comfort factor.

    Well, if you like your money going to the Unification Church, then I guess Kahr is a good deal. I'd rather not give my money to a cult myself.

    Ah the lunatic fringe. Always trying to ruin a good thread with BS off topic comments.
    Here's the bottom line.
    If you have "any" religious affiliation, your part of a cult.
    To cast stones like that, I hope your an Atheist.

    Edit
    Back on topic.
    As stated above give Kahr a try. Best bet would be to rent before buying to see if you like them

    Add the snubbie into the mix, because it's rounded grip actually IWB's better than the Kahr for me :)

    I never really cared for their guns any way. This gives me even more reason to stay away. :wavey:

    Cult is used by some self-professed Christians as a slur, but it's really just a word. True-believing born-again evangelicals and true-believing Glocktalkers are cultists too.

    You have to look at and shoot a Walther PPS. It is the one single stack. Great gun.

    If I had no other guns, the Glock 26 would be near the top of my list. It is small enough to conceal easily although not small enough for pocket carry for many. As small as it is, it is also easy to shoot for an extended period. I have tried several that are smaller and a bit easier to carry but none are nearly as enjoyable to shoot.

    That said I want a Rohrbaugh. And I hope to shoot the new M&P Shield soon.

    In my opinion anything smaller than a Glock 26 is not enough gun.
