Oddly enough, an LC-9 was one of the exact guns I was scrutinizing (online, the dimensions and pictures with a reference object) when it started to occur to me that this whole hand size thing might be an issue in choosing a weapon designed for concealed carry. I had the same concern looking at revolvers like the S&W Model 642 or the LC-R. My instinct is against wanting to depend on an extended magazine to obtain a comfortable grip on a semiautomatic (which, I should point out, I have held/dry-fired before, just not used as I have a revolver). Not sure where that leaves me on concealed carry -- the revolvers that look like they'd fit are like K-frames or semiautomatics of an intermediate size like the Glock 19.
I'm just sort of throwing internal monologue about this at you guys until I get a chance to go to an actual gunstore, but I appreciate the guidance so far.
