If you have big, nonarthritic hands that can hold everything right while you slide the pin in, this will work for you. If you are like me, it's a major PITA.
Here is a link showing field strip and reassembly. Watch how many times this "expert" has to mess with the pin.

I prefer something that does not require extra tools and 3 hands to disassemble/reassemble. My pocket carries are a Pico (winter) and a P32 (summer).
I left out the plethora of good .380 (and .32) options because the OP said they wanted a 9mm. Otherwise, yeah, if you're willing to carry a smaller caliber, then your choices multiply significantly.
