    I'm a big fan of Vedder holsters, especially with the claw attachment. Cook's holsters also makes some quality stuff.

    Printing all depends on your holster, what position ya carry at, your body shape, and to the least degree, the shape of the gun.
    Now however unless you carry in an area where there's laws regarding printing or social predjuce/paranoia about seeing people carrying guns, printing is more a personal paranoia than anything else these days.
    The whole "they can see the outline and everybody is staring at my gun" feeling goes away, as you get more comfortable with carrying to the point that it's sorta routine.
    I've owned and carried both. Bought my Vp9 before the little brother hit the market. Bought the sk about 6 months after it came out.
    The sk is definitely easier and more comfortable to carry, tho the size on the VP9 isn't all that bad.
    I thought I loved the VP9 when I got it, but I hardly ever touched it after getting the sk.
    Literally the only thing sacrificed witthe sk is the 3 finger grip. Which means shifting grip for loading/ejecting mags. Everything else is just as good as the big brother.

    As a slim tall guy the (6'6-170) the vp9sk was noticeably printing in a High Noon holsters OWB holster. I switched to the StealthGear Ventcore IWB and it's made a huge difference in conceal-ability, most comfortable holster I've owned. If you're having trouble with the mag changes due to large hands I would go with the VP9.

    I routinely carry in both IWB and OWB holsters both my VP40 and P30L (albeit not at the same time...).

    My usual holster preferences are for kydex holsters and magazine pouches made by Olen Holsters.

    For the tucked-in shirt/no jacket/vest/concealment garment scenario, I'd have to defer to ankle holster carry, with a smaller pistol than a VP9/40/P30-perhaps one of their subcompact variants. However, with the right slacks, I can carry a Glock G19 in an ankle holster.

    Best, Jon

    I carry a VP9sk in a sidecar by T-rex arms, its very comfortable and doesn't really print unless my shirt is snug, I also carry OWB my VP9 but only in winter. I could probably carry the VP9 in the sidecar but I haven't felt the need to. I also carry a P2000 in an appendix holster and its fine too. So you could do either just practice your draws to be fast and efficient....

    With the 13 round magazine, the problem should go away. I also have big hands, and with a bit of magazine changing practice, it’s now 2nd nature for me with the 10 round (with pinky support) and no longer an issue. That being said, I still do carry my Vp9 in my shoulder rig sometimes, but only my vp9sk on my waist.

    As a school administrator and school security officer, I dealt with this problem. Part of the issue was getting my mind around carrying the VP9sk on a public school campus. However, the longer I carried, the less self-conscious I became - until it became routine. It just took a little time.

    And this was the rig I carried on the job.

With the factory 13 and 15 round mags for the SK out now, there's really nothing to get me carrying the full-size.
    Now that I've put a good number of rounds downrate with both, I can affirm that I find the recoil to be less with the SK and its dual recoil spring. YMMV.
    Yes, the 13-round factory mags are perfect. You can get a full grip, and height is 5” which is same as Glock 19. That’s .4” less than full size VP9 and makes all the difference in concealing IWB in a tucked in shirt.

    The SK is built for conceal-ability. If that is what you need the most, that’s what you should go with.
    I wouldn’t get so hung up (no pun intended) on the mags being a bit more difficult to clear with your large hands. Are you planning on a shootout? Ruling out a malfunction, which is very unlikely with any HK pistol, you’ll not be needing to change magazines in a self defense scenario.
    Carry a spare, and practice.

    I know the two and three extra, extended magazine crowd is going to disagree with me...
