    I have carried my SR9c the better part of the last year while working, with the 10 round mag. Feel pretty well armed with it. But I have been practicing alot with my Kimber and I shoot it better for some reason! I just got a Galco IWB holster for it and it will be with it more often now.

    I would choose the gun you like and trust most. Don't worry about caliber or capacity.

    I recently changed to Quantity, over Caliber. Switching from 8+1(1911), to 19+1(XDm 5.25 9mm), and haven't looked back.

    In this specific case I would say caliber is best, since the difference is only 2 rounds, they both feel good in the hand, and accuracy is the same. Nonetheless, I usually prefer to have more capacity and that is why I choose 9mm as my carry round.

    "Caliber vs Capacity" is no compromise these days. There are large caliber handguns (.40 and .45 ACP) both of which can have high capacity magazines. Springfield XDs have high capacity magazines. The Taurus PT 845 (.45 ACP) and PT 840 (.40) have a large magazines. There is no reson to not carry larger calibers with larger magazine if one prefers to do so.
