So I’ve got the urge for a new 9mm. I’ve got a Springfield single stack hammer fired double action. It’s not light. It’s skinny, but only 9 rounds. And now discontinued. Not that it matters.
Ruger makes their Nax-9 which is 12+1, 1” wide, and looks ok. Anyone have any experience with this one? Comments?

No experience with that model. But when I want a small 9 me go to is the Keltec PF9. I know its cheap and kicks like a mule, yes the trigger is terrible. But it is small and does work.

I've sold a few

as far as a light concealable 9mm, the Sig P365 and SA Hellcat are great sellers,

with no complaints,

wpnsman carries a P365 and likes it

I got the Kahr CW-9 from Chuck Lee when we were still in the other world. I like the weight. Not too heavy, just about right to carry. Small enough to conceal easily. narrow polymer frame with single stack mag.

He said it shot low, but I never got to ask him what weight bullets he shot, 115s or 124s. I need to get it out to the range for testing.

That P265 SIG is for a right hander only. It's slab sided on the right side. That won't work for me. I've got to have something on that side. So I go looking for the round capacity on my Springfield XD-e and find out they've quit making it. Dammit. I wanted to get one in .45 ACP as well. It's fully ambi. Maybe I need to get me a good solid IWB holster and just start wearing my shirts untucked. I don't usually wear untucked, I think it makes me look like a slob. I'll check out some of the other suggestions. My wife has a M-39 in nickle that she bought when Chester the Molester was roaming the streets back in the 1970's/80's. They caught him, BTW. If I were to carry that I'd carry a 1911. Or my SW4516.

SA XDs 3.3 in 45acp?
single stack with a 5 round, 6 round magazine
box, paperwork, and inserts for sights?

I've had a lot of daily carry guns over the years and the P365 hits all the marks. It's smaller than some .380's, thinner than some single stack guns but, they somehow manage to get a high capacity (10, 12 or 15) depending on the grip frame or extension in 9mm with a decent trigger and excellent sights.

I chose the version with the manual safety as I'm an old guy with 1911 muscle memory and the safety is in exactly the right position.

No issues with the firing pin breaking?

No, it's basically a non-issue as far as I'm concerned.

For every one person who bitches on the internet (instead of letting the vendor/distributor/manufacturer handle the issue) there are thousands with no issues at all.

exactly , the teething pains are far behind them,


SIG does like to release stuff early and let the first buyers be the beta testers sometimes,
I can say that at the day job we have sold thousands of 365's and not sent one back since the first recall,

I have done a few trade ins, but that was because they wanted something else, vs a problem with the design or pistol

The broken firing pin thing was real. Glad to hear they fixed it. Still, no excuse for a compAny like Sig to release a product with QC issues. I kinda expect that from a Taurus. But not Sig.
