    The only 9's Ive shot are a glock(one time) my brothers ruger p89 and now my CZ 2075 RAMI, and I have to go with the RAMI for compatability with my 1911's . The safety,grip feel,field strip etc etc are close to or identical to them so very little extra attention is needed to go from one to the other. The only real difference is the trigger reset is a little longer in the SA mode on the RAMI but not enough to create problems. Anyone used to the SA action would find the CZ a pleasant choice in the 9mm caliber,I just kinda ignore the fact it CAN fire DA too

    Scooter that's a nice looking gun do you know what the trigger pull is in SA mode? We have a gun show coming up and I want to get a CZ, just don't know which one. I like the 75 and the Rami you got look good too. Our local gun store doesn't have any to feel and play with. I might have to wait for the gun show to make up my mind.

    I may or may not, still or at sometime in the past, own or have owned a Glock 26.

    However, for the purpose of your inquiry, the Glock is the best of the lot!!

    If you want a small carry weapon the RAMI is good ,3" bbl and stubby little grip,I have no scale but I would estimate the SA pull at about 5.5 Lbs using my Commanders 3.5lb and kimbers 4lb pulls as a guage. It is just a tiny bit gritty feeling yet but experience tells me that will smooth out with age.
    If you dont want your pinky floating in the breeze I would say get the CZ 75c (4"bbl and slightly longer grip).I might get one later after my credit card cools off a little ,XMAS can be hell on plastic ya know

    Even with all the guns you list in the survey, you missed a bunch of great options. My choice for concealed carry would be the S&W 3913. IMHO it can't be beat: its concealable, has terrific ergo's, and decent capacity. This 3rd gen. S&W pistol also has a bunch of "custom" features built into the basic design. Things like stippled front grip, ambi safety, novack sites, beveled mag well, and ported slide (to mention just a few) were all standard on this pistol.

    I am sure there others out there that will do the job. 9mm must be the most popular caliber in the world. Most of your survey guns can "get 'er done" with no problems.

    I'd pick the CS9 to conceal, at least in this state. Flatter than the Glock or XD, has da/sa, which I personally like. I have the CS45, and it's just a tad big. Shoots pretty decently, though. The CS9 is getting close to a pocket pistol, which is cool.

    Tough choices either way. If it was a state where I could wear heavy clothing all the time, I'd pick something more along the lines of a Kimber .45 or a USP Compact, perhaps a Sig 229. It's when you throw the concealment thing into the mixture, you limit things a bit.

    You're wanting max firepower in the most easily hideable set up that you feel confident in and comfortable with. Tough choices all the way.

    This gun I think gets short shrift. I like the set-up on the third gen smiths. I'm a fan, and the 3913 is a great piece. I wouldn't argue a bit with this one, though it appears a .45 has won our yet again.....sigh

    Congratulations! That's a beautiful weapon that will give you a lifetime of protection and enjoyment.

    I voted for the SIG P239. Of those listed, it's the best combination of concealability and bank-vault solidity. But I think most of the firearms on your list are basically too big for concealed carry, at least here in Arizona where you live in shorts and a T-shirt for at least half the year.

    I love my SIGs (six of 'em), and my Glocks (five), and my full-size Kimber 1911. But my favorite CONCEALED weapon is a Kahr PM9 that's been worked over by Cylinder & Slide gunsmiths. A bit smaller than a PPK, it weighs just 16 ounces and shoots 6 + 1 +P 9mms with total reliability, speed and safety.

    If I have my pick, Browning Hi Power.

    Since this thread is about choosing from the list, my picks are:
    1) P99C
    2) G26
    3) P239

    The thread is over a year old now. Interesting to see that Glock is now in the lead, with the P99 in third place.

    I've ended up with None Of The Above, but my son now has an XD-9, and my wife now owns a Glock 19.

    Oh yeah, I've bought two revolvers (S&W Models 17 & 60) and three semi - auto's (Kimber Compact CDP II, Kel Tec P3AT, & Beretta PX4) since posting this.

    I've learned not to sweat the choices, there's going to be more than one more gun in your future.

    G L O C K !
    I carry the G19 (9mm) & I really like this model, not too big & not too small . You can't beat the reliability of glock handguns, very easy to field strip, & very easy to get parts for !

    My favorites are the HK P7 and Walther P5c. However, I do not carry either, except on the rare occasion when I want to feel snuggly with my faves, but for only a few hours.

    My carry nine is a Glock 26, but that might be because I already had a P99, and there were no 239's to be found at the time I was ready to purchase. Still might buy a 239 anyway, since I'm Sig-less at the moment.

    I've also come to like my PM9 quite a bit as well, and find that I'm carrying it much more often than the G26. However, once I'm back in winter clothes, I'll probably go back to the Glock.

    Of course I picked the G26 because its the only handgun I own (as of now). But my second choice would be the compact usp.
