also thought about the glock 10mm but i think the extra cost of ammo is leaning away from me.....i went and held a kimber and SIG loved them both. Also thought about a glock i did not get to hold on however....also there is place that is close to me that will let me rent and shoot that way i can try models out before buying.....looking for a more compact model....which ones do you think i should take a look at.

Glock 30 or Glock 36 or USP-C 45

I am not a fan of SIGs. They don't fit my hand right, but that's just me.

Some people have reoccurring problems with their Kimbers, while other never have so much as a hiccup.

Make sure you try a gun before you buy. You don't want to have second thoughts after you throw down $500+

**shameless plug**
Ever thought of the .40 round? Best of both worlds.

I routinely carry my Kimber Ultra CDP. I find it pretty easy to conceal... much more so in the winter of course. In the summer it's a bit more obvious, but frankly I don't care.

I will testify to the fact that Kimbers, in MY experience, are finnicky. When it runs, it runs great. Recently it seems to be having feeding issues and I'm not going to mess with tuning it myself. It's going back to the shop if it has one more FTF on a hollowpoint. Up to just recently, it has been a pleasure to carry and shoot.

I am also looking for another compact .45 to potentially replace the Kimber. Actually, I am using that as justification... I'm not getting rid of the Kimber :D I played with the Glocks last weekend. All are too clunky. I handled the compact 10mm, compact .45, sub-compact .45. I think that when you handle one, you'll see what I mean. They are very 'thick'. I also messed with an XD-45... very small model, I think it was actually a sub-compact. Again, too flimsy for me. I'm sure it's fine, but I just don't like it. Springield Champion I think? I liked that one too, but heavier than my Kimber.

I'm gonna go look at more this weekend, hopefully. I sure like my Kimber though. It's amazing but I can shoot better with that little pistol than with my gf's issued Beretta 92... out to 30 feet! It's crazy accurate. Even left handed I can keep them in the head out to a pretty reasonable distance.

when i looked at the SIG and Kimber this weekend they didn't have any glocks at the time but he said basically the same thing...he said i have smaller hands and it jsut doesnt fit me right....i geuss he was refering to the thickness of the grip.

thoughts on SIG?

I have a Brown Executive Carry that conceals pretty well, is extremely accurate and a joy to shoot. The Dan Wesson CBOB is of similar size and design. Lately I've wanted to take a look at the new Detonics Combatmaster but haven't found any lately to look/hold before I commit. Supposedly Oakwood Sportsman's Lodge is supposed to get some in.

What to get????

I would recomend a 1911 plaform because it fits just about everybodies hand.
Now, before I get flamed for not recomending the standard tuperware brand of firearm I am a 1911aholic, yes I admit all I have in my safe of semi-auto's is about 18 1911's.

I will try to post some pictures of what I carry on a regular basis, so if I can't get the pictures I will tell you I carry:
Kimber Ultra II, Kimber CDP, Para LDA 645, and a Para warthog. And during hunting season or anytime in the woods it's my Kimber TLE/RL II.
Ok so I can't get the images on this post so you will have to take my word for it.
Take care,

If you can join us at Bulls Eye in Cumming on Sunday, they rent guns. You might give them a call and see if they have any compact .45s in their rental fleet. The number is 678-965-5504.

Could be you'll have a fun afternoon and find a pistol you just can't live without.... Not even for one more day!

My PT-145 is in the shop, but I recommend it. More rounds than I've seen in any other package. Second strike capable. VERY compact.

For an even more compact package, there's the PT-745 with a single stack magazine. It's the same length and height, but slightly thinner.

I will warn you that you need to practice a bit with the pistol. It's very accurate, but small and light, so it doesn't soak up a lot of recoil.

When you get off of 400 and pass Hwy9, Parkway North is the 1st street on the left. You will see a self storage place and a car wash on the right.

You carry a gun that you know to be at least somewhat unreliable?! :shock:

I second the Glock 30. It's small, easily concealable, extremely accurate, ultra-reliable and holds 10+1 of .45ACP. It's a terrific carry gun.

I recently purchased the Springfield Micro Combat. I enjoy that little gun. Carries well, shoots well, and it was fairly inexpensive.

How does that fit in your hand? Comfortable?

I'm thinking of getting one as long as my pinky doesn't hang off the bottom like a fruity Brit drinking tea.
