The initial reviews were pretty positive. Perhaps there have been some teething issues going from prototype to full blown production phase. Remington will get it right. Only complaint the reviewers had was the trigger had some gritty feeling to it, but that can easily be fixed or would over time smooth out.

You mean the Freedom Group, correct? Since that is who owns Marlin, Remington, Bushmaster, DPMS, Dakota Arms, etc.

I think my next purchase is a Kel-Tec PF-9. I have the P-32 and it's an awesome little machine. The PF-9 isn't THE smallest single-stack 9 you can buy, but it's pretty close. I've found Kel-Tec customer service to be very good, and all manufacturing and customer support is in Cocoa, FL. Nice operation in my opinion.

My dad also has a P-32 and loves it, which is what got me turned on to the company. I'd never heard of Kel-Tec before be bought his, but they've made a name for themselves in the concealed carry market, and were actually one of the first to market with a very small "pocket gun".

Thanks for the insight on the Kel-Tec, Jason. After holding it I think I eliminated it because of the grip with my hand and the "feel" of it. I have known a few guys that love theirs, though.

After going to the gun shop and thinking it over some I think I may go with the S&W. I love everything about it except the manual safety. But I can't justify spending $150 more on the XD-S just for that reason. I ruled the Ruger out because of the trigger pull.

I am going to wait to buy one until my CC paperwork comes through. I'll let you guys know what I get and post some pictures!

I know its not single stack, but while you're in the gun shop check out the SCCY CPX 2, dbl stack and 11 rounds counting the one in the tube.

SF0059, where did you find a PF-9 and what was the price? They're difficult to find around here. I'm glad you got a chance to try it. Above all else, you have to find one with the right fit.

I feel you on the Ruger. My folks BRIEFLY owned an LC9 and, quite frankly, thought it was horrible. Dad even put a trigger kit in it but it was still way too long/heavy. I'm generally a fan of Ruger (my first pistol was a Ruger 22), but the LC9 and I don't get along either.

I have the first variant, the CPX-1, and it fits in the pocket well for a double stack 9.

The Sig P250 subcompact is also a double stack that carries well in the pocket.

I wear suits, so generally have pretty roomy pockets.

I should have added here they sell for $239.00. Just bought the 2nd one today.

First one was all black with the black slide. The new one has the satin finish Stainless Steel slide.

I now have one for dress & one for casual wear.

The shield is good but you might want to consider a Kahr CM9 or a Beretta Nano. They are both smaller and more concealable. The Shield is a little larger but will work well IWB if that's what you're looking for.

I'd recommend the Zastava M88A Tokarev in 9mm (9x19). It's a lesser-known piece, but still being made at a fair price.

The M88 Tokarev does not have the most snag free sights on it, plus you would have to carry it cocked and locked, and the slide mounted safety would make it not very quick to disengage compared to a frame mounted one. They are super inexpensive though.

I carry an LC9 when I don't carry a G30SF.

It has a manual safety, ala 1911, which I also have. It isn't a problem for me, and I like that in a small gun that will be in tight spots.

I removed the magazine interlock. The trigger is heavy, but it's no worse than a revolver and I can shoot it well.

The only problem it has is with sweat. It appears to like to rust. You have to keep it oiled and dried out after a hot day in the yard doing sweaty work. The blueing is pretty lame in that respect.

I'm going to get a J-frame this year, I think. Alloy frame. That should be less worrisome.

Sounds like a good candidate for Gun Kote/ Dura Coat or getting the slide hard chromed.
