    Talking Para Warthog

    I just picked up my first carry gun.

    A Para Ord Warthog .45 10+1

    About 120 rounds through the gun, I like it a lot. Plan on going to the local range once a week. Right now I have on a T-shirt and jeans. The shirt is not that loose fitting and I have the gun in an owb holster and you cant even tell. I had it on me all day around family and no one noticed.

    Anyone else carry a warthog? experiences?

    I keep lookin' at one in the case at the range along with several others. Wish I could afford 'em all!!! Talked with 3 owners of Warthogs. Two loved 'em and one had had some FTF issues and was sending it back to Para for some work. Overall most Para owners seem happy with their guns.

    Nice, the Para double stacks seem a bit wide to me as well.

    IIRC - do a search on Warthog - as I seem to recall a thread a while back - more info perhaps and thoughts.

    Slick little gun

    I have handled and dry fired one of these, and they are an attractive gun.

    I guess the essential tradeoff between the Warthog and the various other 3 inch 1911s with single stack is that you get 11 bangs before reload with the Warthog and 8 bangs before reload with the others (with the right mags). In exchange for 3 more shots in the Warthog you have a wider grip area to conceal.

    That is a good looking gun, did you look at the Slim Hawg? Seems it would be easier to carry!

    yeah the slimhog is nice also. The Warthog is little fat. I am a big guy so its very easy to hide. I looked at the Xd 40 sc and also a ruger 345 but finally chose the hog.

    Now I am all about the 1911 style autos.

    you have been bitten by the 1911 bug!
    There is no cure, you will soon find your gun safe filled with 1911s and maybe a few Browning Hi-powers

    Great looking gun. Does it have a alloy frame? Or steel? I carry steel Officers model (3.5 inch barrel) myself.

    Another 1911 fan, welcome to the fraternity ... we'll show you the secret handshake later. Seriously though, sounds as you've got a nice carry weapon there. I personally prefer the Commander and fullsize 1911s but if you're one of those people who have good luck with the shorties then I'd say GO FOR IT!

    BTW, Speer has a Gold Dot load specifically for the short barrel .45s - might be of interest to you. Now ... what kind of holster are you carrying that thing in?

    I'm really a full size 1911 fan myself.
    Though I like my Warthog, I may need to use it to finance my wheelgun acquisitions.

    The Warthog...

    was a little wide for my grip...but is was a very nice gun...congrats on the purchase.

    I have grown used to my 3" Ultra Kimber.

    Although my new Glock-36 has a nice grip...different, but nice...I find that I am still grabbing the Kimber more often than all the others.

    Stay safe...and get that permit!

    I've had a host of 1911's and alas I have traded in my last Para, the stainless CCW LDA has gone away to help fund another 1911, a Kimber Compact CDP Series 1 in .45...

    As seen in the "Addicted post" I admit I have the 1911 bug.

    Kimber PRO CDP II in .40
    Kimber Compact CDP in .45
    Springfield Loaded in .45
    Series 70 Colt Combat Commander

    I've had the following
    Para p16
    Para p14 LDA
    Para NiteHawg
    Para CCW LDA

    and the Llama Mini-Max----don't ask it was an impulse buy that was a waste of $200

    I liked the Para's alot don't get me wrong, but the double stack was a little too wide for concealment in warm weather.

    I carry a Para P10, which is essentially an older Warthog. I love this gun, carry it in a homemade IWB holster (got a Milt Sparks on order) and with a loose shirt it's invisible. I was surprised by the accuracy as well. I have had a few ftf problems, but I think they are due to worn out magazines. I'm going to replace those and see if that fixes it.
    NICE GUN!
