    I have the Kahr CM9 and it has been great after the 200 shot recommended break-in. It is small, light and accurate. It loves Hornady Critical Defense. Good luck.

    Welcome to the forum! You limit yourself and you'll always be limited. I simply couldn't live that way. To each his own.

    Small hands here, too. I carry an LCP always in a rear pocket holster (had to learn to carry my wallet in front pocket). It's often a BUG, since I'll sometimes carry either a Kimber Pro Carry II IWB with a Crossbreed SuperTuck or a Ruger SP-101 IWB with Crossbreed SuperTuck. As you've noted, a 1911 is a slim carry that works well with small hands.

    Try a glock 26. The grip is so tiny you have to have small hands for it to feel comfortable

    i had a S&W 3913 several years ago. and it worked great. My hands are also small and it fit fine. If you could find a good used one I would try it.

    As has been previously stated, you really need to fondle as many guns as possible to see what fits in YOUR hand best.

    Don't worry about having to slightly rotate the gun to do a mag change. I also have small hands, and out of the 30+ handguns I own, I have to rotate all of them, except for the little, .380s. I also shoot USPSA, IDPA, and 3-gun, and even with rotating the gun, can do sub second reloads.

    A two-handed magazine change technique can also be of-use to those with smaller hands. DRM demonstrates it in some of his YouTube videos, and so does Tactical Defense Institute (TDI).

    2016 Updates

    Hi fellow small-handed shooters, I feel right at home in this 2012 thread and I just joined the forum so I could reply and hopefully breathe some new life into it.

    Wow how times have changed in four years! Single stack 9mms are all the rage now and things are looking up for those of us who wear small gloves. I currently carry (and love) the Ruger LCRx and I also have an SP-101, both of which fit my hand perfectly. My next gun will probably be a 9mm M&P Shield, although I am giving the Ruger LC9s some serious consideration too.

    My brother has a Sig P938 which shoots like a dream and is very easy to conceal but that price tag puts it out of consideration for a while. Who has one and carries it regularly (or the comparable Kimber Micro 9)?

    I have a 938 and it's little brother, the 238. I live in Kalifornia and only have a Utah permit, which means I can carry in 35 or so states, but not my own. We recently bought a home in Nevada and we spend a few days a week there. My Utah permit allows me to carry in NV, so I do carry while there, so far mostly the 238 because my 938 is a beautiful equinox version that I don't like to bang up, but also my XDs. Over time, I'll be migrating my Glock 17 and 19 up there, where the 19 will be an EDC and the 17 will be the nightstand or other HD gun. The 238 will go back and forth because I bought it as a trail running gun...not for the big 4 legged predators but for the 2 legged types, so it will go trial running with me and will be in the car/truck trading back and forth. The XDs, the Shield 40, Glock 30, p938, and the UltraCarry will stay here in Kalifornia where my round limit is 10. Over time, I may take the 938 and leave in NV as a small EDC carry for as needed use, and will probably pick up another 45 (Glock or Sig, probably) that I can keep in NV for use with larger cap mags.

    But I digress...yes, I carry the 938 and the 238. More often the 238 for no other reason than that I don't want to scuff up the 938. If I could still buy them in Kalifornia I would have gotten a 2nd 938 with hogue grips or something as my lil' gun. I am more accurate with that lil 938 than with any other gun I own save the ultracarry.

    J frame is a good choice but wouldn't be my ideal primary. I'd highly suggest looking at the Walther PPS M2. Slim single stack 9mm with three mag options of different length and capacity. 6,7, and 8rd mags guaranteed to find one that gives you just the right grip. Super accurate, reliable, and handles like a full size pistol. Very good price too.

    In 9, based upon hand size, Sig P938 followed by Ruger Lc9s.

    In 380, very hard to beat the Sig P238, its very accurate, compact, much less snappy than the LCP and has night sights.

    If I have to choose between SIG and Kimber, I'll take SIG every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    S&W SD9VE ... has a nice grip angle ...a solid compact/ large frame option .. Springfield XDS9 XDS40 or XDS45 all great single stack options ...
    A lesser price option ,the Taurus PT709 slim a soild performer ....

    And as mentioned, a J frame is always a great choice ..
