My first gun and CCW weapon is a Ruger LCP. I got it due to its affordability and generally great reviews. I also wanted at least one very pocketable cc gun.
I absolutely want a .45 gun that I will use for cc, home defense for the time being, and to shoot at the range. The LCP is NOT a fun gun to shoot. That thing hurts after a few rounds.
I really want a Kimber Ultra Carry CDP II 3" but its more ($1200) than I want to spend at this time. I have been seriously considering a Glock 30 after shooting my friends 26, but I really love the slimness of the 1911's for IWB carry in the Florida summers.
The G30 can be had for $450 to $500ish and that is closer to the range I want to be. Im not sure if a good 3" 1911 can be had for $600 - $700. Can you recommend some good 3" 1911 options?
