Sig Sauer P290 vs Kimber Solo vs Ruger LC9 vs Kel Tec PF9 Micro 9mm Pistol Comparison

Need help deciding which Micro 9 pistol to buy? This 9mm concealed carry pistol comparison will help you out.

Earlier we did a quick review of the micro 9mm pistols, but did not include the Kel-Tec PF9. Since then quite a few people requested that it be included. We reworked the comparison, now the Kel Tec PF9, Sig Sauer P290, Ruger LC9 and Kimber Solo each have their own comparison image.

The PF9 vs P290 vs LC9 vs Solo 9mm concealed carry pistol size comparison image is rendered with the back and bottom of the pistols lined up to the x and y axis.

In our humble opinion, not a single one of these firearms are designed to be a pocket pistol. A lot of people are quickly jumping at the idea of a 9mm over a .380 ACP and we can see why, but if your plans are to carry one of these nines in your pocket you may want to think again. Their print is quite a bit larger. However, if pocket carry is not important to you, then 9mm is a GREAT option.
