The 9c is a Gen 1 and desperately needs an Apex trigger.
It makes a world of difference and it pretty simple. Go for it!

The Apex trigger and spring kits (and some careful polishing) turned my SD9VE into a contender for carry rotation. Just need a holster for it.

I think I've decided on my next carry purchase for a new carry gun. I've spent enough time now watching reviews and I'm going to get the Beretta Nano. I was looking at a Kahr, but I'm going to try the Nano for a summertime option. Winter time I don't mind carrying bigger, heavier guns. But summertime I need a thinner, lighter option.

My Star BM is heavier... :d (I'm going to harass you about the Star until you buy one...)

Actually, I have carried one of the Stars every so often (I have three...its a long story). Sometimes heavy feels good...all steel, yet still CC-small.

I carry a M&P9c most the time, but sometimes I just grab the Ruger EC9S, carry appendix most of the time!
I do have a little Pico with a laser that I pocket carry, or leave in the truck, it is actually pretty accurate!
It doesn't matter what you carry, as long as you are carrying!

In warm weather under a light weight loose shirt my EDC is a CZ Rami BD 9mm 10+1 124gr gold dot +P. In the winter months it's my Springfield XD mod 2 3.3" 45 acp 9+1 loaded with 230gr gold dots. I've been shooting for many years and carrying for 20 years going from DA/SA hammer fired to SA striker fired is no problem for me.

Oh man, I've been wanting a Rami for a long time. Seems like every time I think about buying one though, or could actually afford it, there's none to be had.

My Walther PPS M2 in a BladeTech holster, AIWB, 115 gr Hornady Critical Defense. I had the recall and then it started peening on the barrel but I had the gunsmith at my range look at it and he said it wouldn't be an issue if it didn't get any larger, and it hasn't yet after 250 more rounds, so... It just fits my hand so perfectly compared to all the others I've tried.

The Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 usually rides in between the seats while I'm driving in a BlackHawk soft-grip thingie, also with Hornady. I do have a Concealment Express for the G2 for AIWB if I want to. It was my first gun and I really wanted it to "not perform" but I was just at the range Saturday running 100 more rounds of WWB 115gr through it. Aside from two rounds that wouldn't fire even on 2nd-4th strike (a nice feature of the G2), the other 98 went off without a hitch. I've even thought of getting a G2C to leave in the car but I don't like leaving anything in the car like that.

One day I'll get a proper AIWB for either my V2 or SF Elite and give those a whirl. They're nightstand and range use only still for me.

I usually carry a SW MP Shield IWB because I live in Texas and it's hot a lot and I'm a small guy. On cold winter days I'll carry my elite in an Aliengear CloakMod OWB. I've been wanting to get away from my MP shield, but I got it at too good of a price. I've wanted to move to a Tristar C-100 just haven't found one at the price I want yet.

Mostly a Taurus 709 Slim. It’s been flawless except for rare ammo issues, for which a second strike is useful. I’ve added a Hogue Hand All grip and a Tritium front sight. The pistol carries nicely in a Remora (sticky) holster, especially when wearing an 1.75” belt, but does well with a good 1.5” belt. As I live in a cold wintery state the 709s’ larger trigger guard is advantageous with gloves.

FWIW. When I’m feeling like a wheel gun I grab a 3” .357 SP101 in a Simply Rugged pancake holster, carries comfortably all day in town or the woods.

Battle worn red Springfield 2.0 Mod 4. She's a bit chunky, but fine for winter. 16+1. I've carried it for several months now. I don't rotate guns. I keep that same familiarity for the season. When it's t shirts only I've always used a G19. The one gun that is always with me is my LCP. Often I leave the extra mag for the primary gun home and carry the LCP in my jacket pocket. If you are in a situation that raises concern you can have your hand on it in your pocket. You could fire it in your pocket too but I would expect the pocket or spent casing to jam it.
