    Nope, of course not, it's a personal preference, you know that already. My USP Compact has a completely different grip and it fits in my hand good, but it doesn't fit as good as my P-01. I favor the fit of the factory rubber stocks on my P-01 but I can shoot either gun well regardless.

    Of course YMMV but if the OP is asking about comfort and does not know what palm swell is, it is absolutely worth investigating.
    Isn't palm swell something that helps to make your hand fit the gun better and make it more comfortable? - e.g., as advertised here: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tnumber=953134
    Please correct me if I am wrong, as I am still a newbie. Thanks.

    Yes and no.

    There are many who refer to a rounded rear grip as palm swell, but I believe the contemporary definition is exhibited here:

    M&P large grip has palm swell also. If you try an M&P try all 3 grips. They can make a significant difference in how the gun fits and feels.

    Does the XD9 come with palm swell? In any case, as I have stated repeatedly, the Walther P99 was perfect in my hand and I noticed the difference immediately and dramatically from one handgun to the P99, including the XDM9.

    Haha, what a mess I've made.

    Yes, the XD9 has curvature on the rear of the grip. No, the XD9 does not have curvature on the sides of the grip.

    By my definition, it does not have palm swell, although some would say it does.

    I like the feel of the HK P2000 and the Sig 226.
    If I could wrap my mit around a new LadyHawk that could be the most comfortable.

    My Colt Defender .45 feels like it was custom made for my hand. I love the grip this gun!!
    Maybe all 1911 models would fell this way with the Houge grip which came standard on the sidearm. I will let you know when I move up to the Springfield .45 I want.

    I have to recommend my Bersa Thunder UC 9mm... it's all steel so no soft sticky grips, but my medium-large hand is a perfect fit for it.. whereas I HATE Glock grip fit in general..

    Lots of people ignore the Bersa 9mm guns but they are superb, especially for this lefty.. the slide release and safety are both left thumb/right thumb, and the mag release is the only thing still on only one side of the gun.. plus, the safety and the slide release are big and bumpy without tearing up your thumbs, so you can easily flip safety on and off, and easily drop that slide release without any pain/blisters.. amazing how many guns are hard on you with those things...

    There's no contest -the Browning Hi-Power wins the ergo test every time. I'd venture to say the CZ 75 takes a close second.

    This was one of the biggest factors in my decision of purchasing my new handgun. I like the 1911's a lot, but I went with the Beretta Px4. It just feels like I was born with it in my hand....Swwweeeeet feel, and it looks good too
