Which two pistols would you like to see a comparison on?

I am asking because I am writing an article on two hand guns and I am having hard time picking so I thought this would be the best place to ask. I will pick the two most voted guns

Since I am doing it for this site already has a few articles compairing guns so I wont they already have some articles comparing guns so if the two most voted ones are already taken than I will go for the next gun.

Your list has some single stacks, double stacks. I would stick with either. And my vote would be for M&P 9c vs XD Mod 2 for DS or, Shield vs XDs for SS

After looking at and thoroughly examining compacts and subcompacts from CZ, Ruger, Walther, Kahr, SA, Kel-tech, H&K, I settled on a M&P Shield. It felt best in my hand, had a more than acceptable trigger, was light weight, extremely concealable, and reasonably priced and has the M&P's reputation for absolute reliability.

I have a shield 9 and a FS .40
I'd love to see a comparison between the M&P .40Fs and the .40C
for shootability and conceal/comfort carrying ( or the 9FS/9C)
I also am very interested in the Glock 27 2.5 gen. someone showed me one
of these the other day and it's the first Glock that's grabbed my attention VS my shield

An interesting comparison test would be between the full size M&P and the new Ruger American, I'm sure that comparison test will show up in the magazines in the next few months.

Since the survey asks "Which is your favorite carry pistol; "None of the above."

For a comparison of two on the list; Kahr PM9 and S&W Shield.

As for the pistols listed, I would choose the shield 9mm, as I have a couple thousand rounds thru mine with zero malfunctions,and it has been a constant companion for almost a year

The only I own is in your list but really, some people's choices are limited by $ and that may determine their answer on your poll. Maybe you want to revise your poll to "if money were no object" what would your choice be?

I can do a quick and dirty comparison.

Kahr PM9:
Sleek, slim, delightful trigger, stiff slide, two-fingered grip (some don't mind that, some of us want a three finger grip), the plastic feels cheap, the grip texture is like squeezing a porcupine. Takes practice to shoot accurately.
Since shooting it takes some concentration for me, I don't like it for SD purposes except for "in your face" defense. Recoil isn't bad at all, it's the long trigger and long reset.

Shield 9mm:
Sleek, slim, ok trigger (I have the Apex sear block which lightens it up a lot), slide tension is just right, design and construction is top quality, grip texture is adequate. The Shield shoots like an extension of my hand, just point and go, making it ideal for SD when there's no time to think or appreciate a refined trigger or how smooth it is. Who cares, just stop the bad guy. Recoil is also not bad.

I'd like to see a comparison between the Shield 9 and Shield 45.
