Compact 9mm

Looking for some compact 9mm recomendations. Trying to keep the barrel length under 3.5". Anybody have any experience with some good ones or bad ones?

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Take a look at the Glock 26. Reliable,accurate, concealable,affordable, easy to shoot, and holds plenty of ammunition.

Another Glock 26 vote. Great everyday-allday carry gun.

Re: Compact 9mm

Stogey, check out the Kahr MK 40. Better caliber, small and extremely made. I would stay away from the Keltec, I know some officers who carried them concealed, since they had to qualify and actually shoot a sunstantial amount of ammo out of them yearly they didn't hold up.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Beretta Nano
S&W M&Pc 9MM
Glock 26

In that order.

Re: Compact 9mm

Pick the one that fits you best and you shoot well. A particular grip angle/size may support your natural point of aim better than another. As long as you stick with a reputable manufacturer you should be fine.

XD sub-compact, tuarus millenium pro 9 mm, khar pm 9. The compact blocks are nice if you have tiny little girl hands. You'll still wana handle all the model you can get your hands on. Only way to tell which one will fit you the best.
