I've got an M&P Shield, its about the same size as the springfield XDs. Easy to CC while still being fuctional as a shooter, fairly accurate and your pinky finger still has a place to rest.

just contributing to the conversation, in recent months ive purchased two new CC weapons, #1 the Glock 26 for days i can wear a windbreaker, hoody etc and a Smith&Wesson body guard 380 (factory laser equiped) for t-shirt and shorts days. I use a blackhawk CQC holster with the glock and use the paddle option and just love it, i have a Fobus holster for the .380 and completely forget im wearing it. I wont bash anyones elses choices, as long as your carrying somthing, its better than nothing !

I had my Kel-Tec P-32 in my shorts pocket in a Blackhawk #1 size pocket holster all weekend. Couldn't even tell it was there. I, too, plan to buy a Glock 26 for the colder months where I'd wear an overcoat. I'm not into IWB carry, at least not yet.

I was looking at a G26 for winter carry. I ended up buying the G19. It really isn't that much bigger and it was much easier to shoot. IMO, the G19 is the best gun Glock makes.

I go back and forth on 19 vs 26. Honestly, the 26 fits my hand better...the palm swell on a 26 cups right into the hollow of my palm. The palm swell on a 19 sits right at the base of my hand. The palm swell on a 17 sits just below my hand. For me, ironically, the full size and the subcompact both fit better than the compact.

I saw something, however, in a Hickok45 video the other day that might make a 19 work for me: a Grip Force adapter:

It feels in some above the palm swell and adds a nice subtle little beaver tail. It might make the grip too large for my wife's smaller hands, though. We'll see...

I have a Shield 9 and a S&W M&P Bodyguard 380 (non laser) for CC. The Shield 9 is a great gun, easily shoots tight groups out to 15 yards, but it honestly feels like I'm carrying a brick compared to the super small, much lighter BG380. The best gun possible is the one that is with you all the time. With a little training the BG380 is easy to shoot and produces tight groups at 7 yards. At the most likely real life tactical SD distance, 5 to 15 feet or so, I am 100% OK with using the 7 shot .380 BG380 loaded with high quality SD rounds, instead of having to carry heavier 9mm pocket gun.

For non CC use, around the home, etc., I train with and use FS M&P 9mm - 18 rounds with rail mounted Streamlight TLR-2S.

I voted with my money for an LC9. Small, 7+1 of 9mm, loooong double action pull minimizes the possibility of an ND. Yeah, it's a long pull, but not heavy (to me). It's easy to field strip and appears well made to me. I am sure that all of the others mentioned are good guns, some are much more expensive, but I think none are better.
