    +1 Taurus but the PT145. 10+1 rounds of .45 ACP in a small package. Thin grip even double-stacked (what kind of voodoo is that?!?!?!)

    You either love 'em or hate 'em, I s'pose.

    Cheap gun. Reliable. Looks clean. Conceals well. Tears down in a snap. But can't hit anything over about 15 yards with it. :) I'm more accurate with my S&W 442 snubby so no head shot attempts with this one. COM is fine.

    If you can afford it, you might like the H&K P2000SK. I shot one the other day and was really impressed. It's now on my must have list.

    S&W j-frame or a Glock would be great choices, IMHO.

    I think I could get an itch for that Glock 30SF!

    I have a kel-tec p3at and a HK P 2000sk in 40 with the lem trigger. I love the HK and would recommend it to anyone. I'm looking at a Walther pps now and hope to actually pull the trigger and buy it soon.

    Interesting choice... I love my two compact Glock's (19 and 23c), and will be adding a subcompact to my collect sometime this month (26). Very, very reliable, great size and capacity for each size. My primary carry weapons are my Glock compacts... 19 holding 15+1 (9mm) and 23c holding 13+1 (.40S&W). The new 26 will hold 10+1 (9mm) will become just another option for summer carry, or deep conceal carry.

    I knew i wanted a glock because of their reputation for ruggedness and toughness and I wanted a 45acp since I have a 9 and .380. Soo then I just had to decide which glock model it was going to be. I decided that being able to carry comfortably was a must, so it was a toss up between the 30sf and the 36. I went with the 36 because 6 rounds is plenty in my mind.

    The easiest to carry in my toybox is an AMT DAO .45. I know....AMT= Always Made Trash....but mine has never (never!) given me a problem in over 1000 rounds. I have an AMT .380 the guards the inside of my safe (as in I would not carry it except to throw it away!)

    My DAO hides in the back pocket of my jeans, and real well in my 5.11 jeans front holster/pocket....I am looking for an AMT 9mm back-up if anyone has a lead on one.....my other choice is my IMI Jericho 941 (a boat anchor) yet very dependable

    As one who sometimes carries a Glock 36, I can tell you that if you're looking for a .45 that's well-suited for carry, this would be an excellent choice. The only negative I can find is the low capacity of 6+1, for in spite of what many say, I like to have more than that on tap before a reload.

    Might take a look at the CZ RAMI. Available in either .40 or 9mm. Alloy frame or poly. Priced around $500.

    get a Smith & Wesson M&P 340 :)

    .357 magnum ranks right up there with .45 ACP in stopping power and you can't beat the reliability of a revolver. It kicks like a dinosaur but it's all manageable with practice. Plus it fits in your pocket!
