I'm beginning to window shop. I want to get a small concealed carry gun for EDC. I won't be purchasing until after the new year, but i like to read reviews online, go to stores and handle, etc. I have a personal like for thumb safetys, example taurus or beretta where if the safety is up-its safe, safety down or flat its ready to fire-you click it down with your thumb, and safety towards the ground returns hammer without firing. Is there a reliable, small concealed carry gun out there that has this option. I would like to stick with the 9mm caliber and want to stay under $800 out the door. But I want something reliable, small enough that I will actually EDC, and has this type of safety if possible. I have seen that S&W makes a M&P 9 compact that you can get a safety on, does anyone own one and does it work like the above mentioned safety? I appreciate all info, feedback and positive suggestions?
