Did a comparison between my C-9 and my new cougar 8000 which is considered a full size pistol. Maybe the grip is smaller on the c-9 (8 rounds) vs (15) in the 8000 but that's about it. How do they call it compact? Or is that only in comparison with the HP 40 and 45?

Compared to my JHP .45 yep my C9 is very compact. I think they only compare to their own pistols like you say. I still have no problem CCW'ing my C9 though.

That is a little like a Chevy commercial that I heard tonight. One car got better gas mileage than a Honda Civic, another got better gas mileage than a Toyota Corrola (I think) and the last one got better gas mileage than a Ford. A Ford what, I wonder what they were comparing it to? Maybe a Ford 3/4 ton duel cab long bed 4x4?

depends on whos doing the comparing. my old sub compact glocks were about the same size. my pocket pistols are significantly smaller. eye of the beholder i guess.

I use a Govt. frame 1911 for size comparisons. Using that, I'd definitely say that the C-9 qualifies as compact. It's not as small as a Glock 26, but it's not much, if any, bigger than a G19, which is considered compact.

Yup. It's compact compared to the large frame models.

I think the Stoeger Cougar is considered a compact. That's a nice gun, I always wanted one and now they are decently priced.
