Apples to Oranges...or actually Fruit Bats
The question is, how much performance difference is there between your typical fullsized duty pistol and your typical sub-compact carry pistol? I am going to go out on a limb and say that capacity issues aside it is not that significant. We will see though.
So far the tests that have been recommended and ones that I am adding myself are:
1) El Pres
3) Federal Air Marshal COF
4) Defoor Pistol Tests
5) Dot Torture @ 7yd
6) IDPA Classifier
7) Bill Drill
8) Arkansas State LE COF
For the tests that are pass/fail (like the Defoor tests) I will keep a record of actual time, not just pass or fail.
If you are only interested in "apples to apples" comparisons, check out this post on pistol-training.com where ToddG talks about shooting his G26 compared to the G17 that he normally carries. That would be a true "apples to apples" comparison.
