Several times I've seen you say that you really don't think .380 is enough and that we should look into a small 9mm instead.

I've yet to see a 9mm that is as small as the Ruger LCP, which I think has set the bar for concealabilty.

Is there a particular tiny 9mm that you prefer?

They won't get as small as the LCP, but current generation of "pocketable" nines include Kahr CM9, Ruger's own LC9, and the Kimber Solo, for example. Worth looking at.

best,
Mas

Thanks, Mas. I'll check those out.

I probably should have asked the obvious follow-up question in my initial post:
Is there a specific 9mm ammunition that you have seen get good results in those guns?

I opted for the Kahr PM9. They tell you to break it in for 200 rounds, but the only thing I noticed was that the slide racked a lot easier after 100 rounds or so. Not one mechanical issue.

In a pocket holster or in an IWB holster it almost completely disappears, even in just a T-shirt and shorts.

Thanks for the recommendation, Mas!
