    I've become a huge fan of Para Ordance. Really nicely built and uber reliable. I have put 500 rounds through my new gun (bought it 2 weeks ago) and have had nary a hiccup. It eats, shucks, and loads every cheap ammo I have run through it... best part is with the alloy frame, its 25 oz unloaded.

    Oh. And it was only $700. I'd be careful not to spend too much on a carry gun, since its gonna take a beating.

    Which ever one fits your hand like it was made for you and puts the bullets where you want them to go. For me that meant a used Sig P-220. I traded a Colt Combat Commander for it. Was I comfortable carrying 1911s? Sure. I just like the feel of the Sig better.

    Another vote for the H&K USP. Another plus is the mechanical recoil reduction system on the USP.

    I started out with the 1911, so it's easy to understand that I like it the best. I have owned Colts, Para Ordnance, Springfields, Kimbers and even had a Auto Ordnance and a RIA. While most of them were pretty well made and reasonably accurate. I had problems that were very frustrating with some. I finally tried an upper end gun and realized what I had been missing all these years. I purchased a Wilson CQB in all black and finally realized what a first class gun was. It is extremely accurate, superbly reliable and well made. I liked it so much I sold all my other 1911's. I wanted another Wilson for concealed carry and did not want to carry the 5" 1911. In the past I had a couple of different Springfield Champions that I liked for carry. When Wilson came out with the stainless Professional, I picked one up and have never looked back. It has been on my hip since. It is everything the CQB is but in a more concealable package. I almost bought the CQB compact but I dont like the shorter grip. I have now put over 5000 rounds through my Professional and it has never let me down. Here it is when I first picked it up and also in the holster I carry it in IWB.

    Wouldn't go with 1911 - is big and single stack - 7 rounds.

    Would look at the compact XD - smaller profile and carries 10 in the mag - I think. Very tough, reliable gun and a better safety system than HK/SIG/Glock - IMHO. I also like the loaded chamber indicator - have had to use it in the dark a couple of times.

    Accurate as any, reliable as any. You can spend more, but you won't get more.

    Thanks

    I truly appreciate all your opinions, suggestions and the great pictures too. This has/is a very interesting string, at least to me. Iím set on 45 ACP. After all bigger is always better (itís a guy thing). My very first hands gun was a S&W model 629 classic. Loved that gun but way way too big to carry and it probably would kill 5 people lined up and still keep going. Between my wife and I we own 7 or 8 handguns but all of them are sort of low end types. Iím going to do something special for my next purchase if only because I can. Iíll be sure to let you all know what I finally go with, pictures and all. Thanks again you have been wonderful.
    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.
