I'm looking to get a .45 to replace my Kahr CM9 as my carry gun. The CM9 has everything I desire in a carry gun. It is compact, affordable, no safety, and reliable (after some minor modifications to the magazine). All that being said, I still desire a larger caliber. These are the things I am considering for this purchase. The gun must be compact. I know it isn't easy to find a tiny .45, so I'm looking for as compact as possible. I want to carry a round in the chamber, but I do not want any sort of manual safety. This pretty much rules out a 1911 or similar guns that are single action only. Even though I don't have to use the safety, the fact that it is not there to become accidentally engaged gives me peace of mind. I prefer a nice long double action trigger pull as my safety. The gun must also be reliable, and not outrageously priced. Anybody know of any good guns that fit the bill? I would like to explore all of my options. I don't want to risk overlooking an ideal gun, that is why I'm asking for suggestions. Thanks.
