    Thumbs up 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.
    Shoot well and be safe

    HK ,flawless operation. Perhaps a P2000 might be a better choice if ya don't mind a DAO trigger.

    I would personaly get a 1911, not a 1991, For the money its hard to beat the XSE line of Colts (plus you get the "cool"roll mark with the XSE) I would put another $150-$200 with what ya got and get the 04012XSE Commander (I am saying this cause I just ordered a XSE Commander 04012XSE, and should have it in a few days)

    Compact USP is an oxymoron.


    I voted Kahr because you already have one (so you're used to it) and your current primary CCW piece is not a 1911.

    Carrying basically the same manual of arms is a good idea so you don't have to think too much in a crisis situation.

    Hey Bruce,

    Give us a range report on the new "gal" when you get her. I do not know a lot about the XSE Colt line.

    Zundfolge,

    Hehehe, true I do not think any of the current HKs are all that compact. The p45 is a siren call to me as I so enjoy the PM-9 utility and ease of carry.

    Bud,

    The Vers. 3 is the SA/DA decocker without the safety. One of my carry weapons is a Sig 229 and the HK v3 would be much like it.

    So many guns and so little money

    Keep the choices and reasoning coming!!
    Shoot well and be safe

    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.
