    Personally, I'd stick with the RIA Compact. Slim enough to carry all day, steel frame absorbs much of the recoil, universal 1911 parts, inexpensive, lifetime warranty, and a darn sexy gun.

    I'll chime in with the Glock-36...a great CC firearm, but the Glock-30 is also a fine .45.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I'm intrigued by this gun. Looks promising if you can get by the weight and 5+1 capacity.

    Allow me the honor of being the first to recommend a G30.

    From a fellow paratrooper...take a look at the Colt Defender. I've had an Officer's Model(purchased at B&B Pawn on Yadkin Rd in '85....sound familiar?)forever..and love it. The Defender is lighter and comes ready-to-rock out of the box, as my OM needed some TLC to handle HP's etc. The 45ACP Glocks sound good too,especially the G36. Good Luck brother in your hunt for the new pistola!

    Have you checked out the Talo New Agent? I have one in 9mm and it's an excellent shooter, very concealable.

    I like 1911s and I am not a SIG guy, but if you like SAO semis and do not want to spend a lot of money I would also check the SIG 220 Compact SAO. I has German frame, night sights, aluminum grip panels, lifetime warranty, and it is very reliable. For $550 + shipping + FFL fee (CDNN Sports Inc.) you get a lot of firearm.

    Good luck to you!

    I just ordered up a blue label G30 myself.

    I don't think a "subcompact" .45 really exists...maybe the AMT backup qualifies, but is kinda heavy.

    If you want decent capacity in a .45, you're going to get a somewhat largish pistol.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    As other have recommended the Glock 30 I would agree. I would rather have 10 rounds of 45 at my disposal.

    Take a look at the M&P .45c. It has a 4-inch barrel, 8+1, is conceable, and you can tinker with it using after market parts from Apex Tactical or send it to a any number of good smiths for some tuning. PLUS! Smith & Wesson offers military and police $50 rebate right now. They also have a lifetime warranty. Good luck! Rock of the Marne!

    With a name like "TomEgun", I would've thought that you'd buy the hi-cap G30..

    Congrats on the G36. !!
