What is it about the SC that you don't like?

I've been eyeballing them but I have kinda big hands and the small grip real estate concerns me.

+1 on this.
I am seriously jonesing for a SC. I would be most interested to hear the issues you have with the platform.

About the SC. KingBeetle, I feel the same, have it to the wife. I have a Springfield XD mod2 three inch you might like, and it's a double stack. I put
a link detention on mine.
I don't like the way the mag is cut away.

I have a buddy with an XD he uses as his carry gun. It's a nice pistol, seems well put together and reasonably compact without being TOO small. I dunno - I just can't get excited about it - it's kinda boring and utilitarian. Nothing wrong with that for a carry pistol I suppose; just not for me.

I have also been eyeballing the Beretta APX - I have been trying to find a local gun shop with one in stock so I can made a better decision between the 15rnd Centurion and the 13rnd Compact models. I like the idea of the Compact, but if the grip is too small it's a no-go for me.

Your a bigger guy! I carry a Canik SF Elite daily. IWB at 4 O'Clock.
I'm looking at a Tri-Star C-100 or T-120.

If you buy shirts or "stuff" from CF Gear, all profits go to funding this blog. Our Imperious Leader owns that store. Good shirts too.
