I am also considering the Keltec PF9, the keltec .380, and others. But that gives you an idea of my price range and what I've got in mind.
Take a look at the SIG P938, Kimber Solo, and Rohrbaugh.
LOL, "Now that's funny, I don't care who ya are!"
Rohrbaugh, Kimber, and Sig. Same price point as Kel-Tec, Taurus, and Ruger!
Just shows the more elite
your preference of firearms is, the less
you read entire posts.
In the same light, while the KAHR PM9 has been mentioned, the CM9 for a hundred or more less is just as reliable, the same size, and makes as good of a carry piece. While I personally feel it's a bit large, and harder to draw than my Elsie Pea for pocket carry it does a good job of IWB carry that replaces my XD40 Subcompact most of the time. As well as being an often used alternative to my LCP.
