You owe it to yourself to try any HK product. They either have interchangeable panels to customize the grip size ( i.e. Hk45C or P2000 ) or they are already chunky ( ie. USP compacts of any flavor ). The P2000SK grip is just too short for me and I have smallish hands. Others enjoy the SK. HK firearms have well thought-out grips and are reliable and accurate.

5Wire,
Your comparison pictures are very well-thought out and very useful. If you don't have one already, I would strongly encourage you to make a website with all of these images sorted by gun. That would be a very valuable resource for myself and many others.

5Wire, I agree with ScotchMan! As far as a good compact, most of these guns listed so far are some great guns. I like the M&P compacts and the Shield, and the Kahr compact feels good too...but I recently got a Glock 36 - .45 single stack and love it. I have big hands and used to carry a full size Glock .45 on duty with a grip sleeve on it, and this 36 feels great.

Anyone have a compact Springfield? I have heard great things about them too.

I have big hands and I find the Kahr CW45 to be very easy to grip even though it's a small 45.

Glock 23



I have large hands and my Glock 23 (Set up similar to the picture) is a compact thar fits well. And at .40 caliber, it packs a nice punch.
