This is a video from Gun Websites comparing 5 popular compact 9mm handguns. The guns included for review are: Kimber Solo, Kel-Tec PF-9, Ruger LC9, Glock 26, Smith & Wesson M&P9 Compact. A couple of these guns have double stack magazines, the Smith & Wesson M&P and the Glock 26 which definitely adds thickness to their respective grips. The other 3 have single stack magazines which in my opinion make them better concealed carry choices. They all are similar in operation, striker fired, some with external safety’s, some without. The prices varied quite a bit from around $300 for the Kel-Tec to $700 for the Kimber. Weight also varied a bit with the Kel-Tec being the lightest and the Smith & Wesson being the heaviest (the Glock is a close second as heaviest). All in all a good overview comparison although I might put the Glock and the Smith & Wesson in a different category as they seemed noticeably larger than the other 3 compacts. You can find the best prices on many of these pistols at the Gun Source!
