    What's the smallest 9mm gun which you enjoy shooting?

    From reviews I've read, some tiny 9's are no fun at all, though some handle felt recoil better than others, so it seems. How small do you go before smaller is not much fun?

    I actually don't mind shooting my Keltec pf9. I think it is a fun little gun. I do make sure I wear safety glasses. If I shoot it a lot without safety glasses my eyes burn afterwords. With a firm grip the recoil doesn't bother me.

    Shield. Smallest I've shot, felt great in my hands, loved how it shot, thus, I bought one. In fact I'll be having a blast with it tomorrow at the range!

    Kahr PM9, hands down. Easily the most comfortable mouse gun I have ever shot. There's something perfect (given the size/shape of my shooting hand) that just seems to match the PM9's back strap shape, width and recoil characteristics. Even with the hottest 9mm loads, it's pretty darned accurate as well.

    Only downside, the ones I had never were reliable. Sold them. Sadly, too, 'cause IMO it's still the finest format on the market in that category (9mm mousegun that's got "big gun" characteristics of shootability, accuracy).

    Smallest 9mm I enjoy shooting is my Beretta Nano. It's an amazing little gun.
