Yea. Thin, powerful, Glock reliable. I like a .45 ACP. I've got a G30, and after a hot day of lugging the extra rounds of .45 it offers, it makes me think G36. But then, all high capacity handguns get heavy.
Disadvantage: limited capacity, but you can always carry extra mags (or scoot!). If you need to take on an army of BGs, you need more than any handgun.
