For any of you who carry a .45 for EDC...what is your favorite, smallest, most comfortable and reliable .45, and what do you like most about your choice?
I am a hard-working self-employed conservative Christian white male gun owner. How else can I tick you off today?
I sold my old customized full-size stainless Springfield due to size and weight for conceal carry. However, I'm not overly impressed with short-slide 45's. If I were to carry one today it would be an Ed Brown Kobra LW with a Wilson bullet proof beaver tail. Even then I'd send it off to Bob Marvel for tuning.

Glock model 36. Best combination of size, weight, and ease of operation if called upon.

Springfield Champion or Colt Commander. The size, weight, and feel make them my favorite.
Full size Stainless Kimber TLE II, shoots great and feels good.
Colt Combat Commander Pre 80's..................a beauty.
Glock 36 as it came out of the box, it has never fail to go bang and is very accurate.
Tried different holsters for it and really enjoy the Galco Sto and Go IWB.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
I carry my full sized gov replica 1911 if I carry .45
It depends, when off work my Dan Wesson Classic Commander Bobtail. When at work my Kahr CW45. The DW is by far the better of the 2 guns, 1 additional round, better sights and more accurate. The Kahr is lighter and easier to conceal.

Kimber Ultra Carry II. Just took it off training, break-in rounds. Comfortable, compact, and accurate.
Train like your life depends on it, because it does.

Don't carry it yet, but I'm looking at a SIG P220c or P245

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
