    Ceicei, The Rorhbaugh has a little clip on bottom of magazine you need to move (not accurate description but you get the point) in order to remove mag. Also when you replace the mag it is at a bit of an angle so it will go in and seat properly. (A bit like Sig p232. So it takes more time. Great gun though but better BUG I think.
    The LCP is a Ruger. It takes 6+1. Slide does not lock open when you are empty.
    No problem fitting tour hand it is very small and weighs 9.4 oz empty. Fits easily into your pocket or underwear lol. No problem fitting in your hand. This gun puts the shots consistantly in same place. Did it from a bench rest just to see. The rangemaster was impressed how accurate it was even up to 50 feet w/ laser. Of course anything over 10 feet with this gun was a bonus, as he said. The gun is really for 10 teet or less.
    My wife has not shot the P380 yet nor have I. She wanted something small. When that gun is empty the slide does lock open and mags are easy to replace as any other larger semi.
    So as your main carry and wanting something small I think the MK9 would work just fine. The MP9 is lighter but I think you would appreciate the softer shooting MK9 due to the extra weight. It is really up to you and how the gun feels in your hand and then depends on how you will carry.
    Good luck and let us know what you get!

    Good point. That's my plan. It's the best way to compare by trying them out. Isn't that sweet? I used to be a die-hard Glock fan, but I decided to open my mind a bit more and see what else is out there. Maybe something better, or maybe more of the same. We'll see. Now that is tempting. I'll have to buy a bigger gun safe....

    He is why I picked them in this order.
    1. Sig Sauer P250 - I own a Sig P226 and have shot a few others. They shot great, fit my hands well, and are solid built pistols. I also like the decocker and double/single action option.

    2. S&W M&P9c (preferably #209304) - My dad has two M&P and they are also well built guns. I like the fact that the M&P has the interchangeable back straps so you can customize it to you hands. Trigger is good but I think the XD is slightly better

    3. KelTec P11 or PF9 - I have a Kel Tec P3AT I pocket carry when on the sportbike or on my ankle at times as a bug. I think Kel Tec just keeps it simple, as little machining and moving parts as possible. So they are not the most pleasing to the eye but they work. If I was going to go with a 9mm I think I'd spend a little extra and go with a Kahr.

    4.Glock 26 - I'm not a big Glock fan. They are good pistols but I personally think the XD is better. The XD fits me better and I like having the grip saftey. I also reload and the Glock has an unsupported chamber which causes the brass to "bubble". This causes the brass to get weaker sooner and I get less life out of the cases.

    If you're interested in the Glock and the M&P may want to look at the XD also. One other thing to keep in mind is how your going to carry the gun. How you dress and were you are going to carry may be the biggest factor on what’s going to be the easiest to conceal.

    Rohrbaugh 9

    May I ask why?

    Although I would take the Kahr PM9 or CW90 over the KelTec or Rohrbaugh.

    Interesting. Is there something different mechanically that would make the Kahr PM9 / CW90 preferable than the KelTec?
    I would take the Sig first because I am really impressed with their pistols. My main carry piece is a Sig P229. I would take the M&P over the Glock just based on personal preference. They're both good pistols. However, I would take a XD or XDM over both. I own the Kahr CW9 and it has been totally accurate, reliable and comfortable to shoot. I've never really messed with the KelTec. I believe the Rohrbaugh 9 is too expensive, relative to the others in it's peer group.

    I have no problems with the Glock or S&W other than they just do not fit my short fat fingers. For the reason I prefer the Taurus or SA XD models not listed here. I have a P3At that I really like and have never had a problem with it. The P-11 is the same except in a 9mm but I have not shot one.

    I like the look and feel of the Rohrbaugh but have never shot one. Don't know a thing about the Sig other than what I have read. The main thing is what feels good to you. As suggested buy one of each.

    How about H&K p2000sk?

    I went to the store last Friday (Cabela's) to look at different ones. While there, the clerk suggested I look at H&K p2000sk. I'm impressed! It supposedly is an ambi gun (I'm left handed), with changeable backstrap, and easy to strip. He demonstrated fieldstripping it. I'll definitely have to see if the range has one of these and try it out. Any thoughts from ya'll out there about this H&K p2000sk? Choices, choices, choices!!!! It is gonna be tough to narrow the choices down to make a purchase.

    Thanks for your input. SA XD is worth a look.

    I like the look and feel of the Rohrbaugh but have never shot one. Don't know a thing about the Sig other than what I have read. The main thing is what feels good to you. As suggested buy one of each.
    Buy one of each... I think I will. The problem is I can't buy all at once, so the trick is to decide which one to buy first...

    While at Cabela's, I asked to examine the Sig p250 first. My husband took a look at it, held it in his hand, and fell in love with it. Yeah, right.... What are the chances he'll try to claim THAT one if I decided for it...

    Based on the one HK I own (HK USP Compact.40) and how clear their manual is, not to mention how it shoots and reputation of reliability I think you can't go wrong with ANY HK! I will probably get another HK. Maybe the HK compact 45.The p2000 and p2000SK are very nice. Another nice gun but a bit larger is the P30 9mm.

    I've only shot one HK but they have a great rep.

    If you are looking in the $800 range and don't mind a .45 look at the Kimber Ultra Carry II. I've carried both the ultra carry II and the CDP ultra II and can't say enough about them. Got to be one of the must comfortable guns I've ever held. The only slightly negative thing I could say about it is it only holds 7+1.

    If you’re looking more for a 9mm and like the feel of the Kimber check out Springfield’s EMP.
