Very slim (<1"), and 12.5 ounces light, make this perhaps the easiest 9mm pistol to carry concealed, and excellent ergonomics make for good control and recoil management.
    I looked at the Creed but I couldn't get on board with the aesthetics(as much as I hate to say that as a factor). I'll have to look into the KelTec I haven't heard anything about that I don't beleive.

    I've shot more than a fair share of M&P's and they just don't do it for me. They're solid firearms but it feels like there could be more or they could be improved. I wasn't overly impressed with the handling and follow up shots

    I have a Kel-Tec P3AT that I am very happy with. Shoots well, fairly accurate for a pocket gun and eats any ammo I feed it.

    To say that guns kill people is to say automobiles drive drunk and matches commit arson.

    A friend of mine has a sccy cpx2 and had problems with it. Sent it back to the factory and they replaced it, but now he's wondering if the problem will happen to this one too. Kind of a cheap gun.

    Both are WAY to big for carry IMO.

    Then again, there's folks on this forum that carry full size steel framed 1911's on them as ridiculous as that seems. I guess it all depends on how determined you are to carry a big gun on you. If you live in a climate that actually gets warm, and you wear clothes that actually fit you, both of those guns aren't going to be too fun to carry.......my 2 cents

    Right now I carry a chunk of .38 snub everywhere because it's more reasonable than the others. I have no problems with a large gun

    I own a CPX-1 (CPX-2 with thumb safety) and love shooting it. Don't let the high price means quality naysayers get to you. The gun simply shoots everything i put in it.

    Adding that I put over 1000 rounds through it so far. The DAO trigger fits my shooting style great. The warranty is one of the best and their customer service is first rate... It is not the smallest or skinnyest gun but it just felt like it belonged in my hand.

    I normally carry a IWI Jericho 941F, full sized steel guy. I do have other smaller pistols I carry on occasion but usually always end up with the IWI back on me. I am a huge fan of Kahr and own a few. They are super slim, shoot well, and very easy to conceal. They have them in anything from 380 to 45ACP and they almost disappear when using a proper IWB holster for them. I also have a Ruger LC9 that shoots very well and is easy to carry. I guess the only complaints i have on any of those guns is ammo capacity. But hey, I guess you have to give a little to get a little. A friend of mine has a SCCY, he seems to like it. He uses it mostly as a truck gun so I've never gotten any comments from him on how it carries.
