    Remember the question, if $$$ were no object......... I doubt that 1% would go for a $500 Glock.

    I would. I think the compact/sub compact Glocks are the best choices for Concealed Carry.. and the new 21SF can probably only make that more true (I haven't fondled one yet, so I dunno, but its reviews read like it should be a good Concealed Carry Weapon).

    He didn't ask "if money were no object, what gun would you buy", he asked "$ is no object, best .45 ACP for Concealed Carry".

    Two very different questions.

    Good point. Even I am getting carried away with this string and I started it LOL. There are (2) camps here is seems. (Sort of) I suppose on one side I'd get a gold plated engraved signature and very rare 1911. On the other hand what I/we really need, deserve, want is the most reliable, rugged, accurate, easy to carry, easy to shoot, safe, comfortable gun that exists on the open market. So far there haven't been any losers mentioned here that I know of. I do like the custom models however if only because I feel, or trust that the maker has more than just assembled it. They have taken every precaution and opportunity to make it something they are proud to sell.

    Thanks again. Your a fun group to be associated with.
    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.

    Considering I own a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special, several series 70Colts and 2 Springfield 1911's. If I was dead set on carrying a .45 acp it would be a Glock. Spend the rest of your unlimited funds on training. But for the record I carry a S&W642CT most of the time. It's a super pocket pistol.

    Below my avatar it says I carry a Sig P245 but right now (this moment) I have a S&W 642 in a Mikla pocket holster. That is what I carry all the time in the south Florida heat. I carry the Sig on vacations and at times when I know in advance I'll be passing thru an area of town I deem "Indian Country." Or like if I go to the Florida Keys for the day. Weird violent stuff seems to happen more frequently in the Keys. PD response time is also a lot longer.

    Anybody knowledgeable about firearms and who truly needed 100% from the box with little or no "break in" period would be in the lap of total safety with either a Glock, H&K USP in 45 or a Sig. I don't think I could say that about any other maker with the level of comfort I have in the aforementioned brands. Period.

    I would. I would much rather trust my life to a $600 Glock 21 or a $800 USP than a $2500 custom gun. Reliability and capacity are my highest priorities in a CCW gun and combat tupperware beats the high-end custom guns in both categories.

    Thanks jackofspades, that is exactly what I was trying to get across. They are two different questions.

    A good friend of mine has a VW GTI valued at $85,000(major custom) and I would take it over a "Look at me I'm richer than you" Bentley.

    Your right with your second statement though. I probably wouldn't buy a $500 Glock. I can get a used one in great shape for $450 OTD.

    My CCW .45ACP choice

    Gotta go with my Colt Defender. I bought it specifically for CCW and have been very happy with my decision.

    Springfield FBI Professional model. Very nice Combat pistol but made custom for the FBI HRT. Overlooked quite commonly because of them not being a common joe pistol. Even though you can get one for about $2.500.

    Sig 220 compact

    Unless you feel the need for a really large volume of rounds, I would go with the Sig 220 compact.
