for some time now ive been searching for a deep cover gun, and have since decided on a 3" 1911. i still havent figured out how to carry it yet, but now that ive decided on what to carry, i can start to figure out the how.
despite being very unhappy with my last kimber (pro raptor 2 that just wouldnt feed), while looking at my options tonight i happened across the above pictured kimber ultra carry 2 with night sights and integrated crimson trace laser. although i had decided not to buy anymore kimbers, i was almost sold immediately on this weapon. the downside to this (and the only thing that stopped me from buying this weapon on the spot) is that if you follow proper training (trigger finger in the ready position until time to fire) you cover up the laser (which could serve as an awesome deterrent....bad guy sees the magic red dot and starts to think twice). i really like the concept of the laser grip, but cannot figure out why they would design it to contradict with proper handgun training.
most likely ill try to find the above pictured springfield ultra-compact, although id really like to find a suitable laser option that doesnt interfere with proper handgun training.
before i commit to buy, is the colt defender a series 80? the website doesnt differentiate enough between the defender and the commander to be clear.
