Over at ammoland.com, Colonel Ben Findley names the 6 Best Compact Concealed Carry Pistols in 9mm. They are the Smith & Wesson M&P 9C, Ruger SR9C, FNS 9C, Springfield EMP 4.04, SIG SAUER 320c and the GLOCK 19. You may notice that the Springfield is the only single-stack handgun in the group.
Why? When it comes to everyday concealability, single-stacks rule. The difference in width between a single-stack and a double stack may not seem like much, but it makes a world of difference when it comes to hiding your gat, especially if you carry outside-the-waistband (under a shirt).
Why not carry a single-stack? Capacity. [FYI TTAG contributors divide evenly on this issue. RF, Dan, Nick, Johannes and Jon Wayne carry single-stack handguns. Tyler, Jeremy, Dean and Sara cary double-stack guns.] Where do you stack-up on this question?
