I am wanting to get a .45 that is comfortable to carry, my Springfield 1911 High Capacity is waaay to heavy for every day carry, and was considering an M&P till I started looking at the 1911PD. The 4.25in model weighs less than the M&P and only a couple of ounces more than my XD9 I currently carry. I was specifically looking at the Gunsite model, but that's not set in stone. Anyone have any experience with these here? In browsing around other forums they seem to be pretty popular. Oh yeah, my Springfield may be going up for sale or trade soon, depends on what I go with.
