Or is the full-size M&P 9 really that compact?

I was kinda shocked when I put them side by side.

Hah. It's all relative, John. BTW, the barrel lengths are figured differently. The M&P length includes the chamber, the revolver barrel length does not.

While the SP101 isn't an N frame it also isn't all that small or lightweight either. 27 oz. empty. IMO the M&P will conceal easier than the SP101 in 3". I carried OWB the SP101 327 for a short time. Compared to carrying an SR40c the Sp101 was harder to conceal due to the barrel of the SP101 would sometimes be poking out below a jacket.

I don't really like carrying on my ankle. Maybe an LCP wouldn't be so much but even an LCR isn't that comfortable in an ankle holster. By the time I got my pant leg up the BG would already have shot me.
