    Thanks. We chose the PM9.

    After holding both at the same time I realized the XD SC was much larger. For me to the main advantage of the XD was the # of rounds as well but if it is too big to carry, what is the point.

    Late arriving here, but I agree on your choice. The PM is much flatter and easier to conceal as others have noted. I have a P9 and it is my main carry in warmer months. It just vanishes in a good holster, such as the Crossbreed Super-tuck. Flat and quite smooth. Mags are flat too, so it is easier to carry a couple in your pocket. Don't get me wrong, I love XDs and have two but mine are full-sized. For CCW when I really want optimal concealment I always drop to a single-stacked pistol.

    I have 2 kahrs and the are both exquisite pieces of machinery. If you shoot the kahr and then shoot the other gun, you're going to want the kahr. Unless the other pistol is a 1911.

    Those who say both are obviously correct however.

    I don't consider the PM-9 a pocket gun, but that's just me. It's a little big for my pockets.
    Having said that, the PM-9 in a small IWB holster is the perfect carry piece. I wanted to like the XD, (they get good reviews) but it felt too blocky in my hand.
    I love my PM-9, but I've got a Sig P-238 on the way. It never stops.
