    Jimmy is good people and has been around here long enough to know what can cause a newer user some problems. No need to flame someone trying to help you.

    The only real advice you need is find one you like that fits what you like in a weapon and get one. Do you like striker fired more? Get a Glock or M&P, or XD. Like a hammer check out the CZ, Sig Sauers (CPO Sigs will fit your price range). FNP 9 is a good weapon with a hammer, decocker like a Sig but has a poly frame for those that think Tupperware is the cats ass. What weapons do you have now and why do you liek them? That might help with the advice you are seeking.
    well i don't mean to freak out over it but whatever it really does'nt matter...now anyways it really doesnt matter if its a hammer or a striker i like both styles but i've been looking at the glock 26 sub-compact the xd is nice and i like the fnp9 i've also been looking at the beretta px4 storm for the sig i have the p220 in .45 and love it but i really don't want to get another sig i would like something different. but there's still many more out there to look at and like you said i still need to hold them in my own hand to see if i like how they fit and if my local gun range has any i can rent to get a feel for it that would be great...so far i'm really leaning towards the glock 26 though but who knows tomorrow i will probably change my mind and then a day later i willl want it again. i always do that so im taking my time to find which one i want and know for sure thats the one

    There's o denying Glocks reliability I just don't care much for subcompact weapon but it's just because the smaller grip don't feel as comfortable. I also don't carry 9mms as much but I do have a couple(P226 & a really loaded Springer 1911) that I use at the range. I really like the 229 Sigs. I have one on 40 that I'll carry sometimes when I want to give my Para LTC a break. A weapon you're going to carry is sometimes a little trickier than one you wont carry much or at all. Some don't like a full size. They are a little harder to conceal. I do carry a Browning Pro 40 that's a little bigger and it conceals fine. I just don't see size as the big a hindrance as some think it to be. The right belt and holster and you can carry about anything. For me a 220 Sig would not be a big deal to carry all day. But if the weight is the issue and that is totally understandable and a 9mm is the direction you want to go then maybe something the size of a Glock 19 would fit the bill. you get decent capacity and the weapon will shoot accurately a good distance. I know the whole 7 yard stats but I still like being able to shoot out25-45 yards and know where the dang thing is going.

    The cool part of 9mm shopping is there are tons of them to choose from. Keep posting your progress. I love seeing what people get. It's the next best thing to me getting another one..heh

    I would really look at getting a Sig 2022, its polymer, and if you look around, you can find it at just over $500, if not $499. Sig quality, at glock prices....

    Okay, calm down, that's not to say that Glocks aren't tough and reliable... put down your torches and pitchforks!

    The 2022 is a nice gun, and I almost landed myself one, if I hadn't started eyeing the 228. The 2022 is in the process of being phased out in favor of Sig pushing their p250 modular gun, which I'm not a real big fan of, but there's still plenty of the 2022s out there.

    the 2022 is a nice gun i have the p220 and love it so i mean another sig is a possibility but since i already have a sig i was trying to get something different but i wont hurt to rent it out at my local gun range and shoot it along with the glocks and some others to see which ones i like better

    For a compact gun, trust me look at the CZ 75 D PCR compact or the CZ P01

    For a subcompact, look at the Glock 26 with the mag extension that also suppot the pinky finger..I think in the subcompact category the Glock has no real competitor in this domain.

    NB: The new avatar looks "cool" ..

    I could give a vote for the SIG Pro 2022 as mentioned. And it fits your price range. However it's a pretty big carry. But also like Tom said too, you can conceal pretty much anything if you dress around it. The SIG Pro 2022 chambered in 9mm was my daily carry for quite some time.

    Just to give you an idea as to the size of the SIG Pro, it's just a tad beefier than the P229's. I could compare it to the P229 Equinox (the wood grips are a bit bulkier) grip wise. A bit wider and longer also. Fantastic handgun though. And the triggers on them, many rave about them as well as myself.

    Don't over look the Ruger SR-9, I have one and I think it;s a fine gun, never had one problem with it and I believe it's every bit as good as the Glock 19 that others will compare it to. & less expensive than the Gllock too. The SR-9 has a lot to offer, I couldn't be happier with mine, out of all the 9's I own I like it the best

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the Browning HP. Very good feel in the hand, slim enough to conceal too. The single action and manual safety may be a downside if you're looking for something more Glock-like though.

    Hope I don't burst a bubble, but the PPK is not made in 9mm.

    Seems a lot of people are asking about small 9mm pistols lately.
    Before you buy. You might consider this one.
    It is a slim 9mm for CCW, the soon to come Bersa 9 BPCC 9mm


    I believe it is an 8+1 single stack mag and should come with two. This gun should be priced at about 350.00, if you don't mind single stack pistols this would probably fit your needs perfectly.
    I will be looking at them when they come out, but wish it were a double stack or that they made a double stack model of it.

    They are saying, end of this year or early next year.
    No definite date given though.

    G19. Nice pick, My G17 is a very accurate pistola. And the 19 is the baby brother, It should be a very sweet pistol as well.

    Also a recent discovery of mine if you are interested is the Sig Sauer P226, The SigSauer web sight has 20 round mags for this pistol. I don't know if these are flush fit but if they are it will be added to the end of my wish list.

    Update:
    I just noticed that you already have a Sig, so.....oh well, just a thought.
