Lots of great handguns out there.
If you could buy a auto loader in 9mm to carry, use for target practice, and some competition what would it be?

I like the Diamondback DB9 for deep concealment. A Canik TP-9 SA is my new favorite range pistol. In competition I would use that same one or a Sar BP-9 full size. For more clothing when concealing; I'm happy with a SCCY CPX-2. A nice little boot gun is a NAA .22 Magnum.

My favorite 9 is a .40. Not because they are bad but I just think the 40 is better and it is manageable for the wife. The 45 would be the go to but it is a bit much for her and I wanted all the same caliber for my own reasons.
As for the delivery device, I'm partial to Glock. They aren't pretty or desirable to some, but they are rough, tough, rugged, pretty accurate, easy to maintain, and road hard tested.
cheers

Not going to work very well for a lefty.

I've heard a lot of great things about the XD-S and the XD-Mod2.
That's true. Maybe they will make a left handed version if this one sells well.

I've yet to talk with anyone who owned the XD-S say anything really negative about it. The Mod2 version sounds even better. It's on my wish list.

Double stacks can be a bit more difficult to conceal depending on a persons body type. Skinny people can get away with AIWB carry whereas heavier folks really can't. There's something to be said for AIWB and Crossdraw carry in that they are much harder to take from someone carrying that way. Those carrying at the four to five-o'clock position could literally have someone come up behind them and pull it before the carrier knew what happened.

favorite for the range is a Beretta Storm, but for concealed carry Glock 23c. maybe its just easier for fat guys to conceal something other than a .380 or something. used to carry a kel-tec 9mm but it was prone to stove-piping regardless of how clean and lubed it was.

oh and the wife carries a ruger lcr as her concealed carry. ;)
cheers

Glock 19 is probably your best overall choice when it comes to size, cost, ease of maintenance, reliability, parts commonality and after market. people who complain of bulk or size need to find a quality gun belt, not a JC Penny one and a good kydex holster.
