And then there were three.

........... Mainly for a EDC rotation/practice range weapon.
I like all three equally but have only shot the 9c.
I am not afraid of a full size, ,the 9c barely meets my grip length requirements with the pinky extension. I don't exclude anything until you get over 32oz. I prefer external hammers but the 9c seems fine and the trigger is nice, no issues.


Actually picking just one seems to be the biggest issue.....

what would the majority here pick?

Dont have experience with the CZ, but the MP9C is a good shooting gun.

My 9c shoots well... It shoots bigger than it is, very nice at the range.

If you are wanting a little bigger on the grip I would go with the CZ... But with the pinky extension the 9c does have a good grip.

I voted CZ I like hammer fired guns, pretty sure that model gives you the option to carry cocked and locked or da/sa.

Make no mistake I loved my 9c, but being a little large for a CC pistol and not being a fullsized is the reason I traded it. It was a wonderful pistol, accurate and reliable there's not much more you could ask.

That being said, I love my p-09 so much I'm wanting a p-07 even though I really don't have a true application for it. I just want one, I almost brought one home because I liked the size of it over my 09, but they didn't have a new gen one in 9mm that day.

My 09 has been 100% in over 2000 rounds since I picked it up last fall. It's a CZ there isn't much to say negative other than the cost of magazines. Other than the M&P's and Walthers there isn't a better grip out there.

The 9c is close to g26 size... Never thought of it as being too big myself.

Canik TP9SA Canik As a collector of many firearms I have found I have found the Canik SA to be an outstanding value pistol. It comes with mags, grip adapter, and a holster. The tan finish is flawless .Most unique with the decocker switch on top of the slide that disable the trigger. This allows for easy disassembly with out pulling the trigger like a Glock. It takes considerable pressure so it is impossible to accidently bump decocker. To cock after disabled, it only takes about a 3/8" pull on the slide. Very comfortable fit to my hand. The trigger pull is most outstanding. I have put 100 round of mixed brand ammo through it without any issues. Nice sights and balance. - See more at: CIA HG3277DN TP9SA 9MM W/CSE DESERT $338.00 SHIPS FREE

Still browsing the reviews. Some report the CZ as bulky but i have no problem carrying a full size PT809, so i don't think that's an issue.

I choose the 9c, but it's also my EDC so I'm a bit biased. However, if the gun does not comfrotably fit your hand, skip it. Have you considered the full size M&P? I've found that is almost as easy to carry as my 9c AIWB.

I find the CZ P-07 is my perfect CCW size, and I still can't stand the M&P triggers, so CZ would be my vote.

CZ P-07 is my vote. Very accurate and easy to comfortably carry all day long (like many others).

I would go with the Tanfo. I know that it might (or might not) be rough going if you should need to deal with customer service but I have a SAR and a full size steel Witness and haven't had the occasion. Personally, I wouldn't go with the P-Carry though. It's only a slight difference but the shorter grip of the compact is an easier EDC. You can still use full size mags for the range and I just think the proportions are more aesthetically pleasing.

If you're not set on Tupperware and you don't need a rail the C-100 TriStar in 9 mil is a nice gun too. Same deal, shorter grip for carry and takes the 17 & 19 round magazines for the range. The alloy frame keeps the weight under 25 oz.

I love my P-07. Even with the +2 mag extensions, I find it easy to conceal and comfortable to carry. If you find you need something a little smaller, the M&P compact on your list would fit that bill nicely.

I have no experience with any of the guns you mentioned other than handling my coworker's P-09, and I must say that the full size version of the P-07 is an incredibly large firearm. If they all fit you will and everything else being equal, I would consider the CZ for it's ability to be used as a SAO, DA/SA and DA with decocker only. That's a pretty incredible feature and not one I would likely overlook.

Didn't vote since I can't see them on the phone and I don't own a PC. Reading the threads. P-07

Garry C...
Yes the question is which one...first.

ShaunPain...
Yep i like the exposed hammer and safety or decock option....not as much as my PT 809 though, which can do both at the same time. I don't consider full size guns too much for carry. I prefer the longer sight radius.

Man...tough one. Guess i'll flip a coin.

Which one offer the most holster options?

That is an important consideration for concealed carry. Ditto for sight options and mags.

I bet it's not the plastic CZ or the CZ clone. Out of your choices....M&P.

I'd take a look at the Glock 43 also. I know, it's boring, but they are popular for a reason and the market has a lot of options to make carrying the more popular guns easier and more comfortably.


I could give or take hammers on a gun, but if you like them, take a look for a Certified Pre-Owned Sig Sauer P239 or a lightly used S&W 3913.

9c FDE

After much consideration...i picked the M&P 9c FDE. I normally prefer a safety but felt the ambi safety on this model was too cumbersome.

I decided that i wanted something smaller at the last minute, so i passed on the P07 and Witness P Carry.

For me, of the three, the M&P 9c. The Glock 26 however is my top choice as an EDC.

Congrats on the new gun. Don't forget the range report and pics!
