    I think so. I have several full sized .45's. You would'nt think that an 3/4 of an inch or so would make that much of a diffference, but trust me...it does.
    The Commander is so much better to carry that I havent carried a concealed full sized .45 in years.

    The 5 incher does seem to shoot better groups at farther distances. I can usually put a full mag in the7,8,9 and 10 rings on a combat silhouette at 100 yards, with the Commander its more difficult.

    To me, the Combat Commander is clearly better to carry concealed.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Good points guys and thanks for the patience with this old brain.

    I doubt I would be doing much (if any) 100 yard shooting so that's definitely something to think about.
