    HK45c is a good contender and about the size of the P30.

    I currently own a P30 and love it. By far the best 9mm I have ever owned. But I also own a Sig 45 ... Just the 1911 RCS model. I'd like to own a Sig P220 someday but I'm not aching enough for it yet to make it a priority buy. I used to own a USP full sized 45 and I bought it on the strength of my best buddy's recommendation. He was speaking as a retired Special Forces 05, he once told me that if he had to choose a 45 auto to take directly from the box, without benefit of lube or cleaning, directly into combat it'd be the USP 45. So I bought one and did exactly THAT: I took it from the box and to the range. I was determined to shoot it until I had a failure. Either an FTF or an FTE. I figured it would probably go maybe 800 rds. Color me stunned when at 2000 rounds it was still burbling happily along like a well tuned Harley. It was super accurate and a soft kicker. One of the easiest slides I've ever racked, too. But it was just too durned big for ccw in the South Florida heat and humidity. So I sold it with much regret. Still, H&K remains one of my very favorite brands for total reliability and quality.

    I had a Sig 220, still have a Sig 226,

    I have a H&K P30, not compact,

    I had a H&K USP 45 C

    I would rather have a WAalther PPQ than all of them combined if I had to keep them without the Walther.

    It costs less than any of the above, it outshoots ALL of them.

    Was wondering where M&P was on the poll?

    Personally would go with an M&P or Glock, and save $300.

    If you've got money to burn, I'd also opt for the HK45/45c.

    JMHO.

    You left out option #4. Buy 1 of each!
