Re: Para 9mm??
The only criticism I have of the small 1911s--in .45 ACP at least--is the rather stiff recoil. They jump pretty hard, or at least they seem to in my hand. In 9mm caliber though, I suspect this would not be so much of a problem. An alternative to consider, assuming you like them, are the Mini Glocks. A Mod 26 gives you 10 + 1 even without the mag extension you can add. I often carry a G33 and find it light, easy to conceal, and accurate.
