Thread: concealed carry 45

  1. Whatever works for you!

    I started out with a Colt Officers Model, in 45 caliber, but after the front sight fell off three times in qualifications, and after three trips to the gunsmith I was sure it was the perfect gun, then the spring plug blew out and the internal springs fell out in the next qualification. As I was picking up the pieces out of the dirt and thinking that if this happened in a gunfight, it would cost me my life. Traded it off for a Glock model 36, in 45 caliber, and have never regretted the trade. Just need Crimson Trace to hurry up and come out with the laser sight for the Model 36, and I will be a happy camper.

    I am a big guy and I carry the Springfield GI 1911 A1. It cost me just over $400, some years back and I love it.

    Good choices, you won't be dissapointed with the RIA, they are really great pistols. Go here http://forum.m1911.org/forumdisplay.php?f=17 ;) In fact one of the members just got a compact a week or so ago. I have a tactical model thats being coated right now. Heres a pic of her before the coating with a Wilson extended release
    Pretty nice and down to earth people there too. And 2 reps from RIA are members there an are on the board to include there e-mail addresses.

    If you're looking for a .45 that is easily concealable, fairly accurate, and relatively inexpensive, I would suggest a Llama Mini max. It is a miniature 1911-style that holds 6+1.

    I do not own a 45 but if I were to purchas one as a carry gun it might be something like the Para Ordance PXT PDA because I like double actions better than single actions.

    It`s funny you mentioned the Llama mini max.I almost bought one a few years back when i first purchased my firestorm 40 cal.Unfortunately the company is out of business and parts are hard to find.I was also informed that the mini max`s were hit and miss as far as reliability.

    I am partial to the Glocks myse;f. I started with the G30 which is designed especially for concealed carry. It holds 10+1 and can easily fit in a coat pocket. I recently traded it for a full sized G21. I have a large hand and am a big guy. I started shooting IDPA and found it difficult to to do speedy reloads with the smaller G30. Another advantage is that the G21 comes with 13 round mags. I know there are a lot of 1911 people out there but in my time shooting IDPA I have not seen or experienced a jam or malfunction with my Glock. I cant say the same for other manufacturers. As for the price, I picked up my G21 new for $550.00. If you are looking for a carry gun to use to protect yourself and your loved ones, I say you cant go wrong with a Glock. They arent the prettiest gun but when my life is on the line I want to make sure it goes BANG when I pull the trigger.
    Be safe, shoot straight and have fun!!
