I’m a big fan of full size 9mm handguns. If it’s a range gun, OWB or an off-body defensive piece I prefer full size. I like the longer sight radius, extra weight, extra grip, extra velocity, higher capacity and less muzzle flip. Full size pistols usually look better to me with full sized lights. If you already own a compact, you might want to add a full size to your inventory. Your mileage may vary.
