    Thinking about a single stack Kahr or Sig 9mm.

    Is the CM9 the smallest Kahr 9mm

    and

    Is the Sig 250 the smallest 9mm?

    and

    How do they compare to the S&W BG .380? Is there much of a difference?

    Depends on whether the ballistic difference between 9mm and .380 is important to you. I often carry my BG .380 and have no desire or intentions of getting a single stack mini-9.
    I do pocket carry my G26 though and lately either a Colt DS or Smith 438 is generally in my pocket.

    I carry both depending on the situation, usually holster carry the 26 and pocket the BG, but I can pocket carry the 26. I pocket carry both with a Desantis pocket holster.

    I almost traded my BG380 towards the purchase of a LC9. Then a combination of the dealer low balling me $200 for my BG380 and the fact that there's no way in hell that LC9 won't print big time while pocket carrying changed my mind. If I can't throw it in the pocket of whatever I'm wearing, chances are it won't get carried.

    My MK9 is dimensionally the same as a PM9/CM9 but heavier. Here it is compared to my Ruger LCP. The little 380s are noticeably smaller than the little 9mms.

    The Sig P290 is smaller than the 250 and I think the 938 will be a bit smaller also.

    Depending on budget the Rohrbaugh might be an option.
