I recently bought a Kahr PM9 and love it. But am now looking for a 45acp, something more powerful but still want to retain the concealibility factor. I would go with the Kahr PM45, but they are tooexpensive. I am looking for soemthing reliablle and SMALL and cheap in price.
From what I have found seems like there are nto that many options out there. Here they are. PS don't like revolvers and I dont care abou the guns kick. Cheap, Reliable and small (easy to carry) 45 is all I am looking for. Please help!!
G36 or G30
Bersa Thunder 45,
AMT backup 45
Any others I am missing??

x2 for the 30... dead accurate..
its the best 45 i own..
How is the G30 to carry?? I always liked Glock but never bought one to carry becuase they seemed too bulky.
How's the kick from the G30/G36. Although this is the alst of my concerns, i don't want soemthing I can't control.
bro, i am not goin to lie... im a big guy... it DISAPPEARS in my attire...
what kind of attire do you plan on wearing?
the recoil from the 30 is mild. similar than firing the 45 from a 1911 platform. just a teeny tiny bit more flip...
Let the flame begin, I own a bersa ss 45 uc and I love it, but there are a lot of things it isnt, first you cant carry it cocked and locked, because if you put the safety on it decocks the handgun, I can live with that, A LOT OF PEOPLE CANT. second while the handgun is inexpensive for a .45 the magazines are not, so for the same price of the bersa and 3 magazines you can get an xd 45 sc, I dont own a springfield xd45sc, i own a service model and I love it, I wish I had bought the sc, because the grip sticks too far out for me to feel comfortable carrying it, since you were concerned with price I think the xd is a better choice than the glock, if your not concerned with the issues I have listed with the Bersa thunder 45 then you could go there, just make sure you dont get an old one, they did have some out of the block problems.
I'd have to highly recommend the XD45 compact, it dissapears with the right holster. It is the cheapest( priced, but not cheapest quality) 45 I own and once I get night sights on it, it will probably be my primary carry.
For small, thin and light, I'd go with the Kahr CW45. NIB for $400-$425.
For something that is still fairly easy to conceal, especially in the cooler months, I'd go XD-45 Compact. It's a little heavier than the Glock 30, but slimmer, and I like the ergonomics better. Glock 30 is good, too, if you prefer the feel of a Glock.

I just read an article in Combat Handugns on the G30 SF. It is going to get a hard look from me. Even though I have been lusting over a p220 DAK. This ne G30 looks really nice. I definitely would give them a look.
