    Compact 45

    I'm looking for advice on purchasing a new semi auto in 45 acp. Here are my requirements:
    1- "compact" size for concealed carry
    2- no manual safety (DA)
    3- the most round capacity possible

    I have found the Sig P220 CARRY DAK with an 8 round capacity. Is there a better option?

    Look at the HK USP45c (LEM version ). Capacity of 9, IIRC.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Glock 30

    The Glock 30 has a 10 round magazine and weighs 24 ounces empty. It has a reputation for reliability.

    No, there is nothing better than the P220. The P250 has more capacity though, it holds 9+1

    EDIT: I'd still take the P220 everyday over the P250

    P220 if you are comfortable with the size. If not, GLOCK 30. The G30 is a little on the small side for me, but it may be good for you.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Glock 30 or XD45compact. Either one of these are top notch, not too much $$, and most importantly ...reliable. good luck
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    I am a 1911 fan but the G30 sure looks good, I hope to get my hands on one soon... Springfield makes the XD and those do feel good, Taurus 745 and 145, also G36, Para had the LDA 1911 also...

    I have a Glock 30 that meets all your requirements. It is small, reliable and deadly.
