    I don't have any experience with the XR9-S, but I know from a lot of pocket carry experience that 17.4 oz. is a heavy gun for comfortable pocket carry.

    I thought about one, but was concerned that the pull-back feed mechanism could cause bullet/case separation, resulting in a jam that cannot be readily cleared. From their website, it appears such has happened. Not sure I could ever truly trust it - modern pistol ammo is just not designed to be fed that way.

    And I will agree that it is heavy for pocket duty. If you carry it on a belt, then I'd go with something with more capacity.

    It is a novel design, but I don't have a niche for it.

    Here's a few comparison charts featuring the Boberg XR9S I rendered a few years back...:

    I've fondled one at my buddy's LGS and the ergo's are FANTASTIC. The trigger pulls like butter and the pointability is perfect for me. Sadly, he pulled the guns off the shelf when the bullet separation issue came to light. One of their customers had this happen to them and they bought the gun back.
