P99c, 2nd choice is Glock 26
HK USP Compact
Springfield Sub XD
I'm trying to do my homework. I know I may have missed some important choices, but please bear with me.
The question is:
Which of these is/would be your preference for concealed carry?
Please feel free to add comments about your choices.

Most of them I never held in my hand other than the Smith. I feel like with a little practice I could do fine with it.
Simple to operate, light in weight, decent capacity, conceals well, acceptable accuracy......need I say more.....
I voted HK USP from your choices.
If I HAD to carry a 9mm it would be a Browning HP.
The title was supposed to have "compact" in it. It took me three tries to get this poll up. I think I finally have it.
I searced the Browning site, and couldn't find a compact model. But then I kinda got lost in their site, so there may be a compact 9mm that I didn't see.
If so, I'm sorry I didn't include it.
No worries bud. I was just throwing in 2 more cents........
Excellent choice!Originally Posted by jwkimber45
I have a Rami CZ2075 40 S&W and it has given me no problems. With that said I prefer my Glock 27 as I have a 357Sig barrel for it along with a 9mm barrel. This is a great combination.
I can say I do not care for my Sig P239, mine is a 40 S&W but I doubt I would like the 9mm any better. The P239 feels bulky and heavy in my hand.
I have a CS40 and CS45 but I do not have a CS9. My observations on mine are that they good solid performers and I doubt the 9mm would be any different.
I had very bad luck with my PT 111 and based on Taurus’ customer service I will never buy another thing made by them. The PT 111 is a great idea but poorly executed.
I also own four Kahr handguns and they are great handguns. The manual says not to carry them until you have 200 rounds through them and it is spot on. I had jams with my E9 until I shot 200 rounds and I have had no more. Mine is a great carry weapon and I recommend it.
My choices are the Kahr and Glock but you cannot go wrong with the Rami or CS9.
I have to agree with Shipwreck on this one. Out of the choices given the P99c and the Glock 26 and in the same order.Originally Posted by Shipwreck
I carried a Berett 9000s for a while I don't think you will like it unless you have tried it, and your like me and just really dig that gun. It feels very akward in most peoples hands. You really need to have big hands to handle a 9000s. Wish I still had mine, my brother talked me out of it.
Sorry didn't see the Springfield XD sc put that first on my list then the P99c then Glock 26. I will try reading next time.
Well, looks like ya can vote for more than 1...
As they say at the City Election office: Come early, vote often.

So, as of this morning, no one wants to speak up for the CZ 2705, Sig P239, Beretta 9000, or the Taurus 111?
Springfield XD and Walther P99C are in the lead.
I will stick up for the pt111, I have one and it has been 100% reliable and is quite accurate for a 3 inch gun. I just don't care for the long trigger pull, makes it difficult to keep a tight pattern during rapid fire. However it has a manual safty which is nice because if you want to use it do so, if not, don't. It has a second strike capability and is very easy to conceal. Of the list given above I would tie it for third but that is just my opinion. All the guns listed would be excellent carry guns, it will just depend on what features your looking for.Originally Posted by Wandering Man
All you XD guys are causing trouble
Detonics Combat Master - Nothing says "I Care" better than a 45 Auto.
Not on the list but it's what I carry.
Untill i bought my pt145 i was die hard compact 1911 but give the cost and 10+1 of 45 i may have to chage my mind. Only time will tell.
As far as the list the springfield compact is the only one i have had in my had and its a really nice gun but I like to stick to a 45 if at all possible.
I most often carry a Kel-Tec P-11, but do own and sometimes carry the Glock 26 and Kahr K9.
Vintage Walther P5. (date code KC=1992) The greatest single stack 9mm ever made!!
