Thanks for your answers. I have more or less narrowed it down to the Shield, Springfield and the Glock 43. Unfortunately, the Glock is the only one I can rent. I have big hands so I really would have to add an extended plus 2 baseplate to comfortably and securely get a good grip unless I the extended mag that come with the Shield and Springfield. My pinky is about on it then.

I can't afford two 9mm pistols but I am concerned about my grip. I am 6'1" and 220 lbs. I don't know if I should maybe be looking at a "compact" rather than "sub compact" because a larger pistol would give me better grip purchase which I is the most important vs capacity to me.

I carry a P229R, forward of hip/AIWB.


The G19/G26 is really hard to beat as a "I own 1 pistol" pistol. I'm not sure I'd want a micro compact or sub compact as my "go to" handgun.

No one in the middle of a fight that has gone loud has ever said,
Dang! I wish I had a smaller gun that held less cartridges!
