Good options for Compact or Subcompact 45?
I have some extra money coming to me from work soon so I have been dreaming up ways to spend it on guns...
I want to get a rifle, a small 9mm or 380 for summer pocket carry, and maybe upgrade my current EDC. I'm pretty much set on what I want rifle/pocket gun wise, but not sure what to look at for a new 45.
I have a Taurus PT145 now. It has been a great gun for me, but after getting a Glock 17 earlier this summer I have been mulling over getting a Glock 30. My other carry gun is a SP101. I prefer the simple DAO operation of the revolver but not the capacity and slower reload time that the PT145 gives me. Basically what I want options wise... DAO, no manual safety, about 10 rounds of 45ACP (doublestacked), all in a compact frame.
I came up with G30, XD45c, M&P Compact 45... Any other guns that fit the bill that you can think of? Just looking for some guns to keep an eye out for at the next gun show so that I can see how they feel in my hand and compare against each other. All three retail for within $50 of each other in my neck of the woods. The Glock is actually the cheapest and lightest of those three, and along with the fact that I really like the G17 it makes it to the top of my list.
