I have a safe full....."expensive gun of the month habit"....I'm on the patch now :o)

1st Choice and everyday carry is a 1911A1 in 45ACP. Kimber IMHO is the only company making one that does not have to be tweeked out of the box by a gunsmith. Peek at the Kimber Stainless Pro Carry for that one. My 1911A1 is a custom Clark Meltdown.

2nd Choice of late is the new SIGP239 in 40 Short & Wimpy or .357SIG (I have both barrels and mags so I swap calibers sometimes).

I have a Glock 23/19/30/21/34/35 and like em all. The SIG 220 in 45 ACP is a great duty gun as is the SIG 228 in 9MM. The browning High powers are really nice too. My addiction starting to show yet ?

Key is to get what works for your needs. If a CHL day to day carry then weight and carry concerns are primary in some cases.........Lots of possibilities .

My choice is the 1911A1 as that is what I have carried and used the most and I tend to lean towards something I call muscle memory-matic when it comes to speed , presentation and accuracy in self defense mode.

Hope I helped, ....Stay Safe !

I love my Kahr Arms .40. P9 Covert. It's tiny, easily concealable and fun to shoot.

The only problem I have with it is the normal clip leaves my pinky below the grips. With the extended clip though, its perfect for a medium to small grip.

To all: (RogFromGA was just convienent)
Like my father taught me, "a handgun is only good for fighting your way to a rifle..." Though just the other day he was hankerin' for one of those Charter Arms .44 Special snubnose's. I'm rather interested myself.
Still, we think we prefer rifles--much better. Little bitty hole goin' in---greAT BIG hole, goin' out...
