I have an S&W M&P 9mm compact. The magazines from a full size S&W M&P 9mm can also fit in the compact. Same might be true wth your .40 cal. S&W
compact. I've also have a Kimber pro carry II .45, Ruger LCP .380 & an antique Colt .32. Out of these guns the M&P is my favorite, though I CC the
LCP. My antique Colt has the best craftsmanship. The Taurus Judge may also be a good option for BOB purposes since it can fire both Colt .45 & 410 ga

glock makes some very nice 9mm in different sizes. i have a glock 26 which is 9mm and i have one of their .45 models, i really like them. i have
never had a issue with either of them the glock 19 or the 26 are both very nice 9mm's, the 26 is a bit easier to conceal but you pinkie hangs off
the grip, that never bothered me
the rugers SR9C is pretty nice its just a little bigger than i would like for everyday carry but a few of my friends have one and there great the
S&W PM compact 9mm is very nice as well
Personally, I can't stand the trigger safety on Glocks, but some of my buddies dig them (or at least don't mind them). Its tough to figure that sort
of thing out without hands-on experience.
Also, some of the best advice I ever received was simple; draw the gun from a holster (or just from that position) and see which one most naturally
brings up the sight picture in alignment. You can absolutely train around it, and most will be very close anyway, but it seems to be a nice, quick way
to see if one of them matches up a bit more with you.
I have a berretta px4 compact 9mm (langdon ed.). Sweet, perfect size pistol imo. Feels like an extension of my hand. Not too heavy, 15 round clips
with a relatively thin frame. Small print for a compact size. Shoots well. Full grip, no pinky waving. Langdon edition has extra grip, tritium sight,
and flat decocker levers.
