In the first case I'd go for a Glock, and my favourite would be 9mm. Glock17.
In the latter case I'd make an odd choise, and pick the 7,65mm Walther PP or PPK.
May sound like a ridicolous and underpowered choice, but fact is that their reliability are well proven for more than half a century, they will fit into holsters and pockets without snagging, can be carried loaded, and the little .32ACP/7,65mm will do the job on close range.
One of the classic discussion topics! Do you go for an effective cartridge, like the .40 S&W & .45ACP in a big package vs something less effective like 7.65/.32ACP & .380 that is in a much easier size package to lug around(assuming were talking about concieled carry). Service carry, Glock in 40 or 45!
