I don't understand how everyone complains about the weight of the C9 precluding it as a daily carry. I do CC with my C9 and as long as you have a sturdy holster (My crossman's sturdy.. but it sucks) and a stiff belt, you'll do fine.

It's not so much the weight, with me. When I carry, I cc (as my state has no open-carry), and the c9 is a little bulkier than I like. I'm sort of a thin dude, so I need something with less bulk. I have and do still carry it from time to time tho.

the gun is too heavy for the caliber used. maybe it have to be like that with HP but i'm sure they can come up with a lighter slide, come on... the c9 weight almost like a 1911.

It has to weigh that much because of what metal is used (zamack-3) and to support the blowback operation of the gun. So, no they really cant make them lighter.

what position do you carry it in? do you CC with the crossman holster?

I got your last post shooter Z.. Actually looking at a Fobus holster.. And only carried the pistol in the crossman maybe a total of 2 weeks since I brought it 4 months ago. That thing's much more suited for OC if you have to. I absolutely hate the thing, but sometimes my baby gotta be holstered.
