Default What's your favorite compact EDC?

Looking to pick up something to add to the arsenal at the gun show this weekend. I carry a Sig P938 or a Ruger LCP. I was thinking of getting something in the CZ lineup, but not sure. If you could pick up any compact with a reasonable price tag, what would it be?

If you can find a Rami I don't think you'd hate it.

I'm a big fan of Kahr. Cheap, slim and reliable.

In my mind a S&W j-frame can not be beat for EDC.

That I currently own? It would be between my Ruger LCR and my Glock 43. Of what I used to own, it would be a Kimber Ultra Carry. Of what I may buy in the future? Probably a Colt Defender or I've been pretty intrigued by the Sig 320. One chassis, multiple frames and calibers.

I love my XDS 3.3 in .45acp for normal EDC. When I take the dogs for long walks or for bicycling I usually drop down to my Kel Tec P3-at because its so lightweight...but I prefer the XDs over all the other compact's I've carried.

XDS .45 or M&P Shield 9mm... though I tend to grab the XDS more often. They both fit in the same Bianchi 135 holster which is nice.

I like my s&w model 640. Basic reliable 357 mag.ease of throwing it in the pocket guarantees I carry it all the time

I like my Kahr PM-40 a lot and love the small size, but wish it had a few more rounds. Can't have it all I guess, and my G23 is my secondary carry in case I want something bigger.

Cabelas has the LCP2 for $269.99 right now. Personally I hate shooting .380s though and much prefer my Shield.

I enjoy my Khar CW9. I carry it or my Ruger LCP. I have Crossbreeds for both of them, IWB. The LCP is my main go to in shorts and shirt. If I am wearing a little more clothes I was carrying the CW9.

I've got a Springfield XD9 subcompact with a Crossbreed holster too. I might start carrying it now that I have lost some weight.

Just curious, but is there a reason you are looking to add to the the other two? I mean, is there something that you are looking for that those don't provide? I have actually been considering a P938.. Leah has the P238 (and I used to have one) and really liked those.
