    Who carries one of these ? How does it shoot ?
    I hardly ever see this pistol on the shelves, and I was wondering ? You know they must be pretty darn good if you don't see any for sale !

    I saw a used one last sat., at a show priced, at $550. I looked at it but it really is a large, heavy chunk of gun. It holds only collectable interest to me, not something I'd want to CC. I've only ever shot the 9mm, sorry.

    Absolutely one of my favorite carry guns. It vanishes under a t-shirt with my Kramer rig. When I dress light for summer months, it is my most common companion. It is incredibly accurate for its small size and carries extremely well. It has also never failed to function for me, no matter what type of ammo I am shooting. I highly recommend it as a CCW pistol.

    Had one, sold it. Never did like the gun. Guy I sold it to loves it and shoots it well.
    I have zero doubt about the quality of it.

    I own the CS45. Had it for a few years now. It's my primary CCP. Recently added Trijicon Night Sights for it (http://www.trijicon.com/).

    It is a bit heavy - not a plastic fantastic but easy to shoot - recoil minimum maybe due to it's being alloy and not plastic and light.

    Never seemed to take off in popularity so not a lot of accessories for it. I'd love if Crimson Trace made grips for it.

    The holster I use mostly is an old Fobus Paddle that was made for a Ruger P94 which I used to own and sold a while back. Fits it like it was made for it.

    The fobus was a bit long so I sawed some of it's length off flush with the CS45's barrel end.

    I sometimes carry it WO holster in my front right pocket with shirt tucked in and sometimes in my back right pocket when using overshirt.
    For God, Family and Country!
