    I would go for a G26, which is perfect.

    +1 on the Glock 26 subcompact. Also good for pocket carry with no mag pinky extender in an Uncle Mike's or better but more expensive DeSantis Nemisis pocket holster. Not good for tight jeans but great for pleated khaki pants or loose fitting cargo pants (or shorts).

  4. LC9 for me also. Got one in my pocket right now.

  5. I have a XD9 sub compact,Glock G26 and Kahr PM9. The PM9 is what is with me all the time and my favorite!




    Carry what you are comfortable with!

  6. you might have more experience with handguns the me, so take this for what it's worth

    but for a carry gun, would you prefer a DAO, or DA/SA manual safety or not? Those were some of the considerations I made when buying a carry gun. I wanted a DAO, no manual safety, and bought the Kahr CM9...which I love...

    Like the OP, I went looking for a 9Mil for EDC.. I went to Cabellas in Hartford, the guy there told me they were not safe, and that I should only consider the 1911, 45cal. He said 9's can go off any time, but the 1911 can't.

    I own a Ruger GP100 and a Vaquero, both 357mag, but too big for summer clothes....

    Was the guy there right?

    I second the XD9SC. True not the smallest and lightest gun ever made but min has 2K rounds thru it and has yet to have any malfuction whatsorever.

    What on Earth was that guy talking about??? No caliber is more likely to "go off" than any other. That's entirely a question of the design of the gun, the firing mechanism and the safeties. There are 9mms to be had with the exact same configuration than a 1911 (which I suspect is where this guy was driving at with his nonsense). There's a lot of debate on manual safeties in general but again that's not a question of caliber.
