    Favorite .45 for CCW?

    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?

    Springer Micro-Compact, I like the size, weight and overall feel of the gun.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    +1. I carry one of these often, and really like it. It's a little heavier than most might like, but I actually like having the heft of this weapon on me.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.
