I must admit I find the compact a little big and heavy. I have tried hard to carry it daily IWB and struggle. With 12 rounds its a brick. I prefer to carry a slightly larger gun like the full size M&P or a 1911. The larger guns for me carry more compact and comfortable if that make sence. I think its because they are larger and they consume a little more body which helps distribute the weight and size. The compact just seems to hang on my belt and bulge. I cant make it melt away like the full size.
For me, it has nothing to do with the pistol its self. My compact is flawless and shoots great! When ready, my daily winter pistol will change I believe to the M&P 45. Ten rounds of 45acp dosent leave much to talk about at the end of the day and for the money I am sure I will not have my feelings hurt if something was to happen to it.
