I'm sure the M&P9c is a great gun and probably more comfortable to shoot than my Kahr. But a double stack just is not as comfortable for me to carry.

Everything in firearms is a trade off. Otherwise, I'd carry my 1911 all the time.
I agree with all that. Some designs lend themselves to more comfortable shooting though. For example, the LC9 wasn't quite as bad as the Kahr for us.

I'm hoping the P938 is better.

I think The LC9 will even be better after I put the Grip sleeve on...But It doesn't "beat up" my Hand,..And with the 9 rd. mags you get an Instant Grip extension. Fills my hand better, and I can draw it quicker during practices(Yes, I do Unload it to Practice!). Gave All of the 9's I took to the range Saturday, a full take down cleaning & Re-Lube Saturday Night & Sunday Morning. I noticed the feed ramps on both Rugers & my Beretta (the 3 I shoot the most) Were Almost fully COATED in Fouling, they got extra Scrubbing.....
