Go to a shop and check them out. I looked and handled a bunch of small autos including the nano. I looked at sigs, berretas, rugers, Kel tecs, taurus's just about all of them. I ended up with the LC9 as it fit my hand well and I liked the extension on the grip to get your pinky on the gun. It is easy to control and shots surpisingly well. This was the first 7 shot with federal hydrashocks standing at 10 yards. The cheap FMJ ammo shots just as well to. Again just handle as many as you can and see what fits best.
