Did you only look at the price....or did you actually handle and shoot a Boberg to get your opinion? What is the solution they have that is looking for a problem?

I carry the Kahr PM when I need a deep conceal pistol. Whether in the pocket, or preferably IWB it is easily hidden and has a really nice DAO trigger. You get a full power 9mm in a 380 size pistol.

for 250 or less you can get a kel tec p11 a 1o round doublestack that feels like a single i wouldnt want to pay 400+ for any of the others kahrs and kimbers are expensive and the nano is possible the ugliest gun ive ever seen the p11 is a true dao with no safties and a trigger that is exactly what you would want long and smooth and i cant get mine to jam no matter how hard i try and if you dont like it you are only out 250 and they are soooooo light

Another vote for the Kahr PM-9. Maybe not as small as my NAA Guardian .32, but still very pocketable in most pants - and 9 mm certainly beats the snot out of .32.!

S&W shield over pm9. I just think is better after just shooting 50 flawless rounds out of new shield. And these were my crappy/experimental ones I and my dad loaded.
Very impressed. It is a nice gun.

S&W Shield-Beretta Nano-Taurus 709 Blued ( shoot a couple a hundred rounds through all of them before carrying them).

I'm in the market for a Shield in 40 Smith but the money just ain't there right now.

I'll get one though-it's just a matter of time.

The shield is too tall for a pocket.

"Pocket" 9mm recommendations ?

I favor the Ruger LC9 in a Black Hawk pocket sleeve. Inconspicuous in a deep pocket, and with Hornady Critical Defense loads I feel comfortable in my conceal carry. Make sure you are a licensed CCW in your state.

Another vote for the Kahr CM9. I bought one about a month ago and love it.

I bought a soft, cheap $10 pocket holster at Walmart and this package fits really well in most of my pants and shorts without much printing. It's really comfortable, I was surprised how pocketable the CM9 is despite all the great reviews I read ahead of time.

I think this will be my #1 carry gun except for cold weather when I'm wearing a coat, then I can carry my Glock 19. Otherwise I'm too skinny to carry that which is exactly why I wanted a pocket pistol.

I have never been a proponent of cheap guns, but my wife made up her mind on a SCCY CPX2. It was $280 after taxes, and it has been well worth the money. I like it enough that I am going to get myself one next month. I hadn't even heard of them until we saw one and she picked it up to see if she liked it.
