    what every one wants,single stack models,can't an after market company step up and make a slim single stack frame for the subcompact models?Seems to me there was a company or two (Lone Wolf?) making aluminum and stainless steel frames for Glocks.Sure the slide would be the same,but the part that sticks out to tell every one you are carrying is the wide grip.Just a thought.I'm still looking for a slim dependable single stacker to carry.

    How about the single stack Glock 36. It is very little larger than a 26.

    I think the problem in the past was that this type of firearm didn't have enough "sporting points" to be imported. With glock now making frames states side I really don't see what there waiting for.

    I've had four Kahrs.They were 50/50.That is,two worked great,two didn't.I'm thinking about a Kel-Tec PF-9.I've heard very good things about them and they are cheap.I'm going to pick up a G27 first though.

    I heard the PPS has some weird thing in the grip that is of questionable integrity and it could leave the pistol inoperable if it were to break.I'd like to shoot one out of curiosity.I had a G36.I actually used it to take my CC test the first time.Nice pistol but kind of bulky.I'm not a real big guy so it's hard for me to conceal a pistol real well in warm summer months.As cold as it gets here in the winter it's no problem then.

    If you had two Kahrs that worked great why are you still searching?

    The gun won't fire with the backstrap removed and I believe some people had the plastic clips that attatch the backstrap to the gun break if they where removing it and putting it back on allot. I don't see the need to take it off once you put the size you like on. I have a pps and it's probably been a year since I took the backstrap off.

    Yep, anything other than a Glock 26,27, 19 or S&W M&P compact, won't be reliable or have a good trigger !

    I think the walther pps is very reliable. I've never had a problem with mine, and the backstrap thing is something I have only heard of but never heard anyone in person or forums say it actually happened to them. I own or have owned all the guns you just listed. I have never had a problem with any of the glocks or my pps. My 1911 and my MP9c have both had problems here and there, thus I don't own those anymore. Also the PPS trigger feels almost identicle to a glocks.

    The PPS could have been the perfect answer to Glock's lack of a single-stack 9mm/.40

    But I'm currently awaiting my shipping label to send it back to S&W to find out why the trigger NEVER resets when the slide is released after locking back on an empty mag. Unlikely to matter in an real-life scenario since I rarely carry a reload, but it still means something inside isn't working quite right and that bothers me.

    Glock has definitely spoiled me; I have never found a gun smaller than a Glock that I was happy with in terms of function.

    You are correct, they are cheap.

    Let's just say that I have sold/traded a lot of firearms that I later regretted selling/trading.:crying:

    Length gives you away more than thickness.
