    All listed are excellent, reliable CCWs. My personal favorite is the Kahr T9.

    Of those, the Glock has been around the longest, but all of them are well proven. Also, there is a fairly wide disparity in action types and grip sizes.

    And no CZs? :scrutiny: :p

    :what: NO H&K BLASPHIMY!!! LoL

    I haven't shot any of those, but my friend does own a Glock and she CCW's it just fine.

    So based on limited knowledge I would have to say Glock, if I can only pick from your list. However you did ask CCW so compact or even S-Compact should suffice.

    Alas I still want to suggest if I may and not to be rude... H&K USPc series which ever caliber you prefer.

    Of your choices, I say the G19. I prefer a full grip, and carry a G23. Just sold my last micro pistol, dont feel comfortable drawing the little things:D The G19 may not be the best for everyone, but the one I had was 100% reliable, and shot to where I aimed:)

    Not my Intention

    to mess with your thread.

    Your choice is rather limited and I suggest you look at the Walther P99c.

    The specifications exceed that of which you are considering, although albeit just slightly more expensive, but worth it.

    I chose G19 also. Perfect size for a compact pistol and excellent reputation for reliability.

    Kel-Tec P11 or PF9 - great price ($250-$300), both are some of the smallest 9MM's on the market and are backed by a lifetime warranty. Also, very reliable. I own a P11 and after 300 rds no FTF or FTE.

    Glock 19!

    Easy to conceal and reliable. And enough bullets to pop few warning shots. Oh AND lots of mag choices.

    Of the ten or so guns I've carried the KelTec PF9 is my favorite. It just disappears, is a great little shooter and reliable. I also love the value.

    I voted Glock 19. I don't have a lot of experience with others but as the G19 fills the bill I find no reason to look for anything else.

    Probably any one of those you listed (and others you didn't) would work equally well.

    Any quality pistol should meet your requirements. I'm not one to precah the virtues of one particular manufactuer or design.

    I'm a big fan of Glocks and I think the model 19 is the perfect size for a self-defence pistol.

    Handled a Kahr T9 today. The guy at the counter let me hold it next to a G19 because I am looking for a G19 replacement. I was hoping that the T9 would be smaller than the G19 but was surprised when they appeared about the same size. Honestly the more I try to replace my G19 with something else the more I find that its just about the best CCW out there.

    There's no such thing as overall best. There's what fits your hand, shooting style, budget, carry method, and overall preferences.

    Of those listed, all have their benefits. The important thing is for you to feel comfortable with your chosen gun. None of them are particularly low quality.
