You will probably get suggestions for a Kahr P-series, but I personally feel that they are a gamble as far as reliability is concerned. Especially for $650+ dollars. Maybe a CW40 or .45 since they can be had for under $400? That way if you don't like it you can sell it for near what you paid. (My statements about Kahr products comes from a bad experience with a pm9 that left a sour taste in my mouth along with the countless number of instances I've seen online where people experience problems with them)
But I really think a Glock 27 might be what you are looking for. I have a 19 and 26. I had a 27, but sold it for a 26 because I really prefer Glocks in the 9mm flavor Besides, you are already used to shooting your 19. The 27 gives you a smaller package ideal for summer carry and it also gives you the extra "punch" of 40s&w. The 36 is also a neat gun. It's about the same size as the 19, but it's a .45, it's thinner and doesn't have a light rail. You also can't argue with the reliability of a Glock. Good luck!

When I'm not carrying my full sized 1911 you will find me carrying my G30 in a VMII with just a T-shirt as cover. I do not have a problem with either of their bulk even in a GA summer.
It's comments like these that really bother me! For all you people that are convinced that Kahr has "worked out the issues," take a look here:
See second post in that thread (and the rest too). Same exact problems I had with the pm9 I bought 3 years ago. The new models definitely don't have the kinks worked out like many people want to believe. Kahr = horrible quality control.
