    I tend to favor a couple of "oldies, but goodies"-

    1a) Smith & Wesson model 39-2
    1b) West German SIG-SAUER P228

    but, as a newcomer-

    1c) I really like the Kahr CW-9

    Either of these will prove to serve you well. The first two, are a bit hard too
    find and they are getting quite expensive. Option 1c, NIB will run you about
    $430 <> $10.

    Kahr CW9 or PM9. Also, the new Ruger LC9 would be a good fit. Street price is ~$340 for the LC9. A head's up, though...the Ruger LC9 is a new design. Just be sure to shoot a lot of different pistols and get a feel for which is right for you.

    The glock 19 is a good choice if you are looking for a 9mm for ccw - Own a G23.

    If you get a chance make sure to put your hands on them before you make a final decision. Some find the subcompacts a tad bit too small for thier hands and go with a G19.

    Went looking at single stack 9's today and this one by far felt the best in my hand. If my M&P 9c doesn't conceal very well with the Crossbreed Supertuck that is on order then I'll be getting a Kahr CW9. Cabella's has them on sale the entire month of May for $420 ... not a bad price.

    My favorite 9mm carry guns that are actually easy to carry in any clothing type, are the Kahr PM9 (or CM9) and Kel-Tec PF-9.

    Try and find a place where you can try all your possibilities. I too would recommend the Glock 19 or the 26. I personally carry the G23 which is the same size as the G19.
    Have you seen the Ruger LC9? It too could fill the bill for you and it is relatively inexpensive. Also think about the Ruger SR9c. It is a lot of gun for the money and shoots real well. Lot's of options out there.

    I personally like the M&P9c. My second choice would be a G19. Neither is the sexiest, but they are super reliable and get the job done.

    The G 26 works fine, but I wish I could afford a Springfield EMP right now. Fired one the other day for the first time. I want one.

    Don't forget the ruger lc9. Love mine. Also fits in my Ultra Carry Cozy Partner. Easy to take apart as well.

    +2 on the Glock 26 & 19...

    If you want something lighter for poclet carry the the KelTec PF9 is a very good choice.

    In that price range, I'd personally go (and did) for a Sig p228 and/or p6. Those are my daily carry pieces right now. I also would recommend a p229, but that's going to pop above your price range.

    In my wish list is a CZ75 D PCR compact with decocker, which might be close to your budget. CZ p06 is also in the running, though personally the rails don't do much for me. For the same reason I'd recommend a used p229 without rails over the one with the rails, but that's just a personal preference.

    You can't go wrong with

    a Glock 26 or Glock 19. I prefer the 40 S&W so I have 2 23's. I am going to buy a LC9 maybe more than one if I like it as much as I think I will. I handled one of the Kel-tec Pm9s the other day and if I thought I had a week to pull the trigger each time I might buy one.:barf: That is without doubt, the worst trigger I have ever felt. I see Kel-tech guys bashing the Ruger LCP trigger all the time and, up till now, I took them at their word. Not any more.

    Have carried Taurus 709, Luger LC9, and of course, the Sig 229. Have also carried the S/W 4013 .40 Tactical, but it is a little to square edged and a little too uncomfortable. The Sig is amazingly comfortable IWB @ five o'clock or in the shoulder rig.

    I suggest a 3rd gen GLOCK 26, truly a rugged, reliable, fantastic gun.

    Beretta PX4 Storm Compact: $465.00 at Bud's. 15+1 capacity (can accept the PX4/CX4 17- and 20-round magazine). Length is 6.8 inches, height is 5.0 inches, width is 1.4 inches and weight is 27.3 ounces.

    Glock 26: $499.00 at Bud's. 10+1 capacity, 6.29 inches long, 4.17 inches high, 1.18 inches wide, weights 19.75 ounces.

    The PX4 is a sweet-shooting gun; very reliable. Still has the rotary barrel of the full-size PX4.

    Lots of good suggestions so far. I would add the Ruger SR9c to the list. Love mine.
