    Thinking about a Night Guard

    I'm starting to get the revolver itch again after my wife just picked up a new J-Frame. I want something bigger (and more than 5 rounds) however, and I'm already fairly accustomed to carrying a 4" 1911.

    What I really would like is a side by side comparison of size between a Night Guard and a 1911. I previously owned a GP100 4" .357, and it was about the same size as my full size 1911.

    I am leaning toward the .357 model, but I'm also very interested in the .45acp model.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

    You could get the 45acp version, and make things simple. 2 guns/ 1load. That has an appeal to it. I would love to have one in 44 spl. I have heard good things about them.

    Well, after a short bit of google-ing I ran into some pretty mixed reviews. On the negative side, some folks complained about the moon clips, that they are a PITA to get the fired rounds out of. Also, that the length to the trigger was too long for medium sized hands. A couple others were about the plain black rear sight not being tritium also.

    I, myself am not so sure about the width of the cylinder being comfortable for CCW. Haven't found and width measurements yet, but it looks mighty fat.

    Any other suggestions, or are these complaints the minority for the 325? Budget is roughly $800. Nothing double stacked. Already good on 1911's

    I had a 325 and traded it off. It was pretty fat around the cylinder, and it was really big for only 6 shots. The moon clips were a pain, until I learned how to remove empties with a pencil.

    I had mine for use as a second gun in the car, but opted for a Glock 34 instead.
