    Berretta Nano is my favorite daily carry.
    Sig Sauer P290 is a great daily as well.
    Glock 43 is pretty good.

    Or if you're into shenanigans get yo'self a Hi Point, cheap and disposable.

    :) I myself love HK P2000 very versatile gun. Good for carry and home protection. Has the ability to decock the hammer, which I always like when I carried. Its single and double action.
    It's a bit on the pricey side but it's a fantastic gun.

    another vote for the 290!

    i was thinking of the full 9mm but the 290 is great when you don't want everyone on the street to know you are carrying without sacrificing stopping power.

    I'm partial to my Glock 17 and 26 for carrying. Simple and reliable.

    Go to a range that has rentals and try as much as you can to see what you like. Then once you decide you have to train on it until handling it is second nature.
