I know I'll catch flack for this but..... I traded my XD45c and my Taurus 651 for a new Taurus PT145 (3rd gen) and a 18.5" Maverick 88. I went looking for a pocket gun, but I really wanted to wait for the LCP. Then I started looking at the PT145. It felt right, looked right, had the right price, and best of all it carries much easier than my XD. I picked up the 88 for $200 and the PT145 for $370. I've been waiting for an 18.5" 88 to show up for months. I can't wait to get both of them to the range.
