    The Shield, Glock 43, and a variant of LC9 do not surprise me, but I would have thought the P938 would have made the list over one of the other two. Not saying the CM9 or PPS aren't good guns, but there are a lot out there and the P938 seems very popular. I might have also thought the XDs would have made the list. I did note the list is all striker-fired.

    My favorite is the Sig P938
    Also, I like the little commie P64 Polish surplus pistols, with the addition of a couple Wolf springs they are a dandy concealed pistol.
    Kind of a poor man's PPK.

    SA XDs
    Walther PPS I and II
    Glock 43
    Bersa BP9CC

    until SW gets the trigger right on the Shield, it does not qualify. Triggers on the five listed above just freaking smoke the trigger on the Shield. The 2.0 is getting there, but still need an APEX trigger to make the gun shoot like it should. Not acceptable.

    I took my PM9 to the range Saturday, first time I had it out of the safe in several months.
    It took almost 30 rounds to get it back under control, even at only 3 yards.

    I realize it's an effective 'belly gun' and in certain situations could be just fine, but for the first time in forever I've begun to second guess whether that will ever return to being a part of my regular carry rotation. And you know what that means .......

    I love the little thing. It is truly an incredibly smooth trigger, the gun has never failed. But its so light that with any decent self-defense round in it, it can be a bugger to handle.

    I own the XDE, bought it soon after it came out. I’ve got over 500 rounds through it so far, and it’s quickly become my favorite carry gun.

    Don't own one but

    1. Springfield EMP
    2. Sig p938
    3, Shield
    4. 1911 Commander various makes

    And this one is my favorite and might be bending the rules just a tad since it is 9x18 rather than 9x19 but they did not specifiy

    The S&W Model 3913 is a great gun ... gave one (Lady Smith version ... had the script filled in with gold) to my second ex while we were still married ... whish I had kept it for myself.

    Conceal Carry wise ... Personally don't feel there is any advantage for me to have a single stack over a double stack ... except for pocket carry. Which is why I have a Kahr PM9 ... built like a tank and slightly more comfortable to shoot than my LCR.

    Hindsight always being 20/20, up until I modified a couple of longer mags with a sleeve to give me a better grip, there were plenty of times that I'd like to have had a single stack. Of those the OP listed, there's not one on the list I'd trade for my current 9UC EDC.

    She wants to go to a narrower grip for carry , XDm is just to much, size wise, sometimes. She wants to stay at or under $600 at this time. The XD E with the extended mag would work where more firepower might be needed and could be carried as a spare. She has developed bursitis in her hands and nees something that would be easy to operate the slide on also. She is not recoil sensitive and doesnt experience any pain shooting he XD m 40. She knows that she would have to retrain herself to use a DA/SA gun. But that doesnt bother her. Thanks all of you for your recommendations.
    How about the XDS? Trigger would be like her XDM.

    I'm going to second an earlier poster - try the XDs. I have been carrying one in a .45ACP since they hit the market and really like it. With that said, my absolute favorite in 9mm is the Bond Arms Bullpup but it does not hit your dollar limit.

    I like your list. The PPS classic is a great ccw. (even though mine isn't 9mm)

    I'd also add the Xds. My wife has been carrying it for about 2 years now. Its been a great little gun. It actually is what got me to look for a single stack. At the time if Springfield made it in .40 I would of never looked at the PPS. But I'm sure glad I did.


    I also I think I'd add a Sig 239 even though I don't own one. I know they go against what most folks look for in a single stack due to it being metal. But I always thought they were nice guns and have wanted to pick one up.
