I figure my next purchase will be a compact or sub-compact auto-pistol for winter CC. In thinking about what to get, I wished there was a chart similar to Bobo's Pocket Comparison chart hosted over on MouseGuns.com. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted it. So, I contacted Bobo, got his comparison figures, and made one. It's located at
The intent of the chart is to compare all automatic pistols that meet the following requirements.
1. Greater than or equal to 6 inches in total length, but less than 7.
2. Currently in production
3. One of these calibers. 380ACP, 9x19, 357Sig, 40S&W, 10mm, 45ACP, or 45GAP.
Yep, I know there are a lot of good guns out there in other calibers, or are a little larger, but I had to set some limits to reduce the scope and these are what I chose.
The chart I made is fully compatible with Bobo's chart. If you're considering trade-offs between a gun on his chart and one on mine, the diagrams are 1 to 1 so a direct comparison can be made.
There's holes still in my data. If someone has one of these guns and will post here or PM the info to me, I'll update the chart. Ditto for any guns that I might have missed or any typos or errors in the chart.
I hope y'all find the chart useful. My thanks to Bobo for giving me his comparison components to make the chart, and to MouseGuns.com for hosting it!
