If you are truly convinced that the less lethal option is less than desirable, then our posts did the job to make you think it through.
I know sometimes satire can come across as disrespect, but it is a good tool to get people thinking, That is all we are trying to do here.
More important than the CC pistol you plan on buying is training, training, then when you think you are ready, train some more.
Feeling comfortable with your weapon is important.
Good Luck and may none of us ever need to use them.
But as the US Coast Guard motto says " Semper Paradus"
The ones you will shoot the most accurate are the ones that fit your hand naturally and most comfortable.
Sit down and decide on at least how much you will spend and which calibers you will consider. Then start looking in stores. Look at the guns to see which fit that criteria and have the size you think you can conceal.
When you pick it up, it should be in your hand with the front and rear sights lined up in a straight line with the wrist and forearm and be comfortable. The web of the hand should be up to the sweep of the grip and the barrel should be parallel with the forearm. Push back on the muzzle. Still comfortable? If it is, this is probably a gun you will want to practice with and shoot well.
The better the natural fit, the less recoil will bother you as well.
Make sure it is empty, visually look at the chamber. Pick it up, adjust if neccessary to line up in your hand and jus hold it until your hand gets tired. Repeat until you pick it up and you hand lines it up automatically and then practice. A lot. Until when you come up on target you first shot is where you want it.
And make up your mind that you will use it if NEEDED and make your first shot count, you may not get a second. No matter what happens, make that shot count. Fire the next first shot as needed.
As for shooting legs and arms? Most people miss moving animals and birds approximately the same size and diameter more than they hit with a shotgun. Let alone a pistol.
That is part of what I teach.

You might want to check out the H&K VP9 also.
Comes with lots of backstraps to make the pistol comfortable in your hand and two 15 round mags.
Pretty highly rated as one of the best out there.
It's a shame folks choose to judge you instead a of answering your question. I see why people avoid some firearms forums. Many armchair experts who have never been in a scary confrontation.

First for home defense, second for concealed. FYI ammo is kind of expensive. Hope you never have to use it.
The OP's question was answered repeatedly and there were even alternatives offered.
Funny you should mention folks judging...
People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.
