    Go with a G30. 10+1 and you can use the G21 13 round mags for reloads. I find the G30 is much easier to conceal and to carry than an XD 45 Compact.

    Thanks everybody for the replies. I was at the range/gun store today. They did not have the Sig p220, but had the p250. Man, did that have a great feel to it. I could not believe how smooth it felt. I held a Glock 30 and it was a close second. I'll keep looking for the p220 to get a feel for it. I may go with the P250 because of price. I've got to pay the tax man first so, it will probably be a few months.

    I have carried an XD.45 compact now for a couple of years by far the best EDC I have ever had. Easy to conceal 100% reliable.

    Another vote for the Glock 30. She is a pleasure to shoot and very accurate.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    good choice on the SIG thats a nice gun. a friend has the 220 and the 250...even though the 220 is a "pricier" gun we both like the 250 better. just "feels" better in hand and both shoot equally as well. and the 250 was the compact so it was NOTICEABLY smaller.

    Id also not turn down a Glock 36..its the ONLY Glock id own(personal reasons with glocks big crappy grips VS my medium size hands they dont like each other and the 36 is the ONLY glock ive picked up that actually fits)

    M&P45C. mine was dead reliable, and a lot more ergonomic than my g21sf.

    the glock 30 & glock 30SF have suffered from out of spec frame rails recently causing the slide to rub the trigger bar which in turn causes failure to return to battery problems. glock has issued a new trigger bar with a minus sign (-) to solve the problem, but it only solves it sometimes. go onto glocktalk.com, there's plenty of angry g30 owners on there. no one knows if glock has resolved this issue yet. the problem is the rear frame rails are set lower in the frame than the front ones.

    the g36 has been glock least reliable design to date. sometimes you will get a dead reliable one, & sometimes you'll get a jammomatic. there's a guy in Cali that sued glock and won because they couldn't fix his g36 after 3 trips back to them. here's his blog: http://g36mf.blogspot.com/

    Try a Smith & Wesson M&P 45 compact before you make your final decision. It's the best feeling compact .45 out there, IMHO. Lightweight, and 8+1 capacity, with the option to carry 10 round mags as spares.

    The Sig 220 is a good pistol but I find it too big and heavy for carry and it has a limited mag capacity. I'd own one but I wouldn't carry it. From your requirements any of the polymers would be a good bet.
