My new carry gun will be a Shield 9mm without the manual safety. Personally, if I were planning on pocket carry though, I would get the version with the thumb safety.
I shot both the 9mm and the 40 a little over a week ago. And although I am a fan of the .40cal; it is quite a handful in that little pistol.

The CZ75 is just a PITA to carry very often; especially now that spring is on the way.

I didn't much like the grips on the Springfield XDS or Ruger LC9, but that is a personal opinion.
The Kimber Solo was a nice little gun; but the range owner said they could be a bit finicky even after break-in. And they are too spendy.

Ruger makes some nice pocket guns. My pocket gun is a little kelTec .32. It fits in my back pocket like a wallet.

It might be a little big for a pocket, but I know that the XDS comes in a 9 mm

Single stack works better in the pocket.

The Shield is smaller, less expensive, carries 1 more round, and is available with a manual safety.

I like Glocks, but I think Smith+Wesson have them beat in the pocket gun market.
