pros cons? For conceal. Anyone have side by side pic?
I really am picky about my carry guns size wise, 99% of the time I always go for smaller but with the XD I choose the 45c over my 9sc EVERY time.There is a big
difference betweent he 9m and a 45.. The SC is definitely a carry..
How much recoil difference is there between the sc 40 and 45 compact?Both will conceal but the SC obviously better. Do you have a preference in caliber? You're talking .45 versus 9mm/.40 and there is a difference in recoil. Might be worth finding a range and renting them.
I don't think there is any question that the XD45 Compact is the better choice as a carry gun.How much recoil difference is there between the sc 40 and 45 compact?
The 9sc is really nice. I shot XDConvert9mm's and I want one now. I do prefer it with the pinky extension, though.+1 for the 45c. A sc with the mag extention is about the same length as the compact's grip. This is the hardest part of a gun to conceal. A 40 in a small frame is a pretty snappy shooter to get follow ups with . . . I prefer and hit better with a 45.
Given this, I'm still temped to get a 9sc for practice and some carry but I think I'll always fall back to the 45c for carry. I wish they made the 9 in a compact size.
Now Tard's tactical . . . that's some kinda sweet shooter!
As stated early when comparing to the 40sc the 45 Compact has greater capacity which changes everything. Superior stopping power, less chance of over penetration and greater capacity it's a no brainer.a 9sc and 40sc are the same size frame. exactly the same size, so either caliber could be compared for size.
