There is an arguable advantage to carrying a pistol that feeds from a double stack single feed magazine, but there can also be a bit of a disadvantage. The advantage is having increased magazine capacity but sacrificing grip comfort, due to the enlarged grip to accommodate the larger magazine.

Like many shooters of my generation I tend to favor the polymer “tactical” type of pistols, not giving modern classics like the CZ 75, Hi-power, PPK, or the P38 the time of day.
