    Hi Cap .45

    Ok, I have a couple of XDs and I have a Kimber 1911... I love my 1911, and I have a hard time doing something with my safety thumb on my XDs now... Is there another hi cap 45 that I should consider other than the ones offered by Para ?

    Relax, if you look on XD's web site, what will you see, XD's now with a thumb safety.

    The USP45 is a very good hi cap .45 (12 round magazine) and it has a thumb safety for cocked and locked carry if you wish. I've had this one for 8 years and it has never failed to fire or eject.

    I think Para makes a couple of different flavors of high cap 1911-style pistols. If you can find one in the US, Armscor 1911A2, I think.

    If you want a thumbb safety, look into the newer XDs, as mentioned. Springfield also has a hi cap 1911. Or perhaps the S&W M&P 45? That one has an optional safety for your thumb. Para, STI, EAA??? You are not out of options...

    Could you guys point me to the Kimber and Springfield ones? I looked on their websites and can't find them. Sorry, I'm not web savvy this morning for some reason :)

    I like the XD, but I shoot a 1911 a little better, and haven't tried the one with the thumb safety. It looks too small to rest on, but I would like to try it before I rule it out.
