    Need help with first handgun purchase

    I am trying to decide between a CZ RAMI or P-01 in 9mm. I have researched both extensively. Both are fine firearms. Both fit my hand well. Of course the P-01 has a "more comfortable grip." I have small hands so with the addition of a pearce grip extension, I can get a full grip on the RAMI.

    Eventually I intend to carry, once legal to do so. I am leaning towards IWB.

    Any suggestions between these two. I am quite small so that is consideration (5'8" 145lb).

    I have gone back and forth, setting my mind on each several times. I'm currently out of the country so I have time to think about it before I have the opportunity to purchase any ways.

    I have never been happy with CZ pistols for CCW the lack of a de-cocker on a DA/SA pistol is an issue for me. The CZ P01 says it has a de-cocker. So If CZ was the only choice that is what I would pick.
    I much prefer a striker fired pistol for like a Glock 19 for CCW.

    use the one, you have a better grip and shoot better.
    Concealment is more an issues of good holster, than the size of the handgun.
    I myself use a full-size CZ 75B cocked-and-locked in an IWB holster and very happy about it.

    PM me if you need a good holster.

    I have both guns, both are well made and I don't have any problem concealing either one. The RAMI I have doesn't have the grip extension, but I don't find that to be a big problem, since most defensive shootings are close range. Overall I think the P-01 is a more accurate gun, but either will do it's job, as long as you do yours.
    BTW, are you looking at the decocker version of the RAMI or the manual safety version?

    I am looking at the new decocker version of the RAMI.
