    .45 Choices Poll

    Ok guys I need to come down to a few choices of a .45 to carry, I have narrowed the 1911 side down to a Kimber Ultra Carry or a Dan Wesson Bobtail Commander.

    But I want to find out what you guys think the best non 1911 .45 is, I dont like Glocks so I excluded them from the poll.....

    So what do you guys carry or like and why? How do you carry it? How much did it cost? Pics of the gun and holster are also helpful.

    Do you have other suggestions?

    I don't post here anymore...Sorry
    If you aren't going to carry a Glock, get a Sig.

    Heavier, but reliable.

    Well since most people seem to like to recommend glocks I would consider a Glock 30 or 36 if enough people recommend it........but I would have to have a strong arguement to want to carry a Glock IWB

    Kahr P45. Carry it daily; it's totally reliable. It replaced a G36.
    The Edge ... there's no honest way to describe it. The only ones who know where it is have gone over.

    Put me in the "other" category! I've carried Glock G21; XD-45; USPc 45; Sig P220; Sig P245; Para LDA; Colt Commander; and even briefly flirted with the new Kahr 45. My favorites, by a long shot...S&W 4553TSW or a S&W 4556.

    Voted for the Ruger P90 as the P97 was not listed. Its big and ugly but it is reliable. And if I do get involved in a shooting and they "retain" it for evidence I have spares to use as backup!

    Sig P220 for me. Two reasons:
    1) It's a Sig!
    2) My P220 and my P226 fit in the same holsters so I don't have to buy as many holsters!

    The only one on the list I own is the Sig 220. I think the XD and the USP are both excelent guns too. The Sig is arguably the hardest, toughest, shoot every time gun on the list.

    I dont carry mine often due to size & weight. (usually a G23) But.. cold weather is coming and I can tuck it under a jacket just fine! If I didnt already have one, I would look to their compact or carry version of the 220.

    Other for me too. My EDC is a S&W 4563TSW. ANd I would also look hard at the M&P 45acp.

    P-220-ST, I carry it because I am surgical with it. It goes bang everytime. The added weight of a ST model makes shooting 200gr. +P rounds smoother then most .45s with standard loads. Weight is not a factor to me on a CCW. If they made a Carry model in the ST type I would be first in line.

    P220 Carry. Why?
    Because its a Sig, To hell and back reliability with 1911 accuracy.
