The next possible CCW weapon shall be . . .
In an earlier post I mentioned that each of my current centerfire pistols are from different manufacturers. I currently have . . .
S&W 586 6" no dash - beautiful 357 mag revolver.
Kimber TLE II 45acp - trouble free tack driver.
Sig P229 357sig, 40s&w - flawless functioning primary ccw weapon.
Kahr PM-9 9x19 - carefree tiny mite of a gun secondary ccw/always gun.
Springfield XD9 tactical 9x19 - ever running very accurate nightstand gun.
CZ 75BD 9x19 - ceaseless fun range weapon / the nightstand backup.
The main two themes here are no malfunctions and all different manufacturers. If I had any caveats about the above weapons it would be that I would like the finish on the XD to be more durable and I will be replacing the sights on the CZ with nightsights. I like them all and I shoot them all. Variety is the spice of life.
Now on to my problem. I can only afford one more weapon before the end of the year the candidates are as follows . . .
HK USP compact var-3, 45acp or 357 sig. The HK is liked by many. I have only had the chance to fire a USP 45 once so I may have to buy one for a longer evaluation.
Colt 1991 series - O4091U: Commander Stainless, 45acp. Colt lovers are hardcore and vociferous. This weapon would scratch 3 itches. 1-I do not own a Colt, 2-I do not have a commander sized 45, and 3-I do not have a fully stainless pistol yet. I must ponder this . . .
Para-Ordnance Nite Hawg, 45acp. Para brought us the high capacity 45acp and their weapons are enjoyed by the many faithful. The Nite-Hawg could be the powerful CCW I have been looking for however it is a bit on the "fat" side. What do you expect from a Hawg anyway.
Kahr P45, 45 acp. The P45 could be the weapon that breaks my "no two guns from the same manufacturer" past. The ease of carry of the PM-9 has led me to look into this weapon. If I can find a weapon that disappears like the PM-9 with the power of 45acp I may just have to go with it.
So you see my quandary. I can only have one so which shall it be? Please list your reasoning behind your choice and experiences with the weapon if you have them.
I would Go With A Colt In .45acp
And absolutely I would go with Stainless.
All of my new CARRY pistols will be Stainless Steel from this point forward.
As much as I LOVE the look of nice Blue on Carbon Steel...I'm buying only Stainless.
I am SOLD on Stainless for Carry.
I am tired of adding Refinishing and Shipping Costs to the cost of any pistol that needs even a slight modification or even some sharp edges slightly softened.
I see every advantage to Stainless & no real disadvantage.
