    My choices

    I would answer this with two choices, a 1911 and a non-1911, because people tend to fall into those two categories on this question. And for both categories I would pick something that has:

    1. Good ergonomics and hand comfort.
    2. A good reputation for reliability.
    3. Reasonably small size and weight for easy concealability.
    4. Good accuracy.
    5. Price under $1000 for the reason Janq mentioned above.

    My choice in a 1911 would be a Kimber Pro with aluminum frame and 4 inch barrel, fitted with thin grip panels, Wilson 8 round magazine, night sights and checkered frontstrap, like the one I use personally:



    And in a non-1911 I would pick the H&K USP 45 compact, the Glock 30, or the new Sig P220 carry, all of which have different features but meet my 4 criteria above. Here is the Sig P220 carry photographed by Ken Lunde:

    Speaking of Ed Brown and Ken Lunde

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    I truly appreciate all your inputs. I can also relate well to the above quote, (as can many of us I'm sure). Being fairly new to CC I'm learning as I go. My Taurus PT-745 Mil Pro is like a "starter wife" good place to test the waters and learn the ropes with "reasonable" reliability, but not worth a life time commitment. If I ever really need protection, at that moment, what would quality/reliability/accuracy be worth to me? How would I feel with a loved one dead at my feet and a round jammed in my ejector port? Or just as bad having shot an innocent by-stander in an attempt to hit the BG. I’ve always been an excellent marksman, well better than average anyway, hitting what I aim at is just as important to me as hitting the target every trigger pull. I realize that most conflicts take place within just a few feet of separation. To me assuming this is just like assuming I’ll never need a weapon at all. Both “probably” true, but probabilities get people killed every day. Thanks again. GREAT WEB SITE. I’m happy to be a small part of it. When I do get my “REAL” pistol I’ll definitely share my decision with pictures.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I agree also. Also consider that if you are ever involved in a shooting even if your justified and found innocent by the courts your gun will still be kept for awhile for evidence. It may be kept in unfavorable conitions. It's alot easier to swallow that pill with a $500 gun than it would be with one costing 200-$300 + more.

    The XD .45's are very accurate and reliable. Mine has a couple thousand + rounds through it with no malfinctions. It averages 1.89" at 25 yards. It is easy to carry(the service model XD .45 with 14 rounds in it weighs as much as a single stack steel frame 1911).
    My next but equal choice is this beauty:

    I have carried 1911's before and never felt handi-capped by thier ammo capacty(8+1 with Wilson magazines). The S&W in the pic is a scandium frame light weight.

    Now there's a sensible answer. I'd say that the vast majority of us would shoot better with a $500 gun (whether it be Glock, M&P, XD, or an inexpensive 1911) and $2500 worth of training than we would with a $3000 custom gun.

    I have to admit that the Wilson's are calling to me.
