      Questions about compact 9mm's

      I'm looking for a compact CC 9mm. Are there any out there that have the decocker function?

      I have never shot one myself, but I hear very good things about the Sig Sauer P239.

      And I love it. A bit large for pocket carry. I do cc it with a Galco Summer Comfort when I am wearing a jacket.

      I really think that should I ever decide to buy another gun it would be some sort of single stack 9mm like the P239.

      I realize this is the semi-auto forum and you asked about a 9mm, but I have found no better pocket gun than a S&W J frame. I love my 640.

      So your looking for a sub-compact for pocket carry?

      I carry a Ruger LCP all the time, looking for a smaller 9mm, without having to spend the $$$ for a Rohrbaugh(sp).

      Those two Kahrs do not have the decocker function. I don't think the KT's do either, but I've not used those....

      True, but neither does the Rohrbaugh that he mentioned. I haven't seen a pocket semi auto that has a hammer to decock. Imo the SAO mouse guns are the best option for pocket carry. He has a Ruger LCP, so I figured he doesn't mind the Keltec style long trigger pull that the PF9 would have.

      Heres a place to start

      I actually looked at Kahr and a Keltec 9mm something. The Keltec looked pretty neat and compact. My concern with it is, that it is not too much larger than the LCP. The LCP is not a fun gun to shoot, especially with Buffalo Bore. So I am expecting that with a larger round, 9mm, the Keltec 9 would probably be similar to the LCP.

      I really don't think your going to find a pocket gun thats fun to shoot. That being said my wife can run 100+ rounds through her Pm9 without any problems. The PM9 felt recoil is considerably less than that of the Bersa .380cc that she carried prior.

      P.O.P. PM9 is the Kahr. I also own one. It is much more pleasant to shoot than the LCP.

      Not sure how small you want to go but in the compact/subcompact line is the Beretta PX4sc but it is considerably larger than my LCP or PM9. The PX4sc has a decocker function and safety.

      The Walther P99 AS compact is a striker fired DA/SA with a decocker.

      I think a 9mm pocket gun with a decocker is asking for more than what the commercial market has to offer (unless by 9mm you also meant .380 auto?). Also, you mentioned you were interested in a compact, but based on your desire to pocket-carry, it sounds like what you are really looking for is a subcompact, and a small one at that. I'm not sure there is such a thing, but if there is, someone please say so
