    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.
    Universal Background Checks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

    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.
