There is no substitute for the 1911 model....
I couldn't agree more, I've got a Kimber Polymer Custom, and just picked up a Kimber Ultra Ten II today, both in .45 ACP. Oh, and a Glock 27, .40 cal.

"Packin"
The original title of this post was "Who's packin".
By use of the word "Packin" I am assuming the topic starter is reffering to a concealed weapon.
Are you guys really "carrying" a 1911 around? Hey, more power to ya. I own one myself, but it would never be a CC weapon for me. While it is a fantastic gun and has time proven, low-tech,(heavy bullet, lots of powder) stopping power it is just too damn big and heavy. It won't fit in an ankle holster, and it will show on your chest or in your pants. Maybe good for under the seat or dash in your car. Besides, you only need one shot, where is the fun in that?

Yep, 1911 (Commander nowdays) in the waistband for me. When you're 6'3, 260 it isn't hard to hide, nor uncomfortable. I wear a dress shirt and tie (no coat)every day, and unless you're very good at spotting, you won't know it's there.

Yep, really carry my full-size, single stack Kimber mentioned above on my waist. Although the Combat Commander is much smaller and lighter, I still prefer the .45 ACP over a 9mm ("heavy bullet, lots of powder" ).

For duty I carry a H&K USP 40 with high cap mags. For off-duty carry I have a Glock 23 .40cal. and for competitions I have 2 glock 17's. One's a 2nd gen with 3.5lb disconnect the other's a 3rd gen with 3.5 disconnect. All have night sights. Then for fun I have a nickle colt python 357mag, a ruger single six .22, H&K USP Tactical, and a H&K USP compact 357sig. So far all my pistols have been very reliable. I keep them spotless because never know... One day I might need one to save my life and I need to know 110% that it WILL function.

Jeff,
Then I must show you my Springfield Ultra compact!! A bad guy would never know it's there until it's to late!

Any Armalite AR-10 fans out there? I have two of em and just love the damn things, they can put your eye out easily at 100 yards!

It's very easy to conceal the sub-compact 1911. They are about the same size as a baby Glock.

Packin means Concealed
My state (TN) doesnt require it to be concealed... however MOST of the time I do ,but not always ,You can walk around with a shiny hand-canon hanging off your side like the old west ,makes for some nice gun/holster collections around here since they can be seen.

3" non-locking blade penknife - that's the UK for you. We are not allowed to defend ourselves if it involves hurting the aggressor!

I have numerous pistols and revolvers. If and when I choose to pack I carry my S&W SC1911 Commander. Its small, light and easy to shoot. I mainly pack when I go to my cabin in north Georgia. I have a Fla CWP which allows me go take a pistol to about 25+ states.

I feel for you. If our lefties over here have their way we would be in the same boat.

I just picked up a new P7M8. Other than being a 9mm it's great for "packin". Anyone ever try one of these? Way expensive so I'll probably never carry it around like my Glock 23.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

How many pistol shooters do we have and whats your fav..??

Mines a SW38 Snub.
My most resent addition for a carry gun is my new Springfield XD.40.
Very nice, super smooth trigger and nice balance. Good size, and easy to conceal. It was hard to switch from My Beretta 92FS, which I carried for the past 8 years. But so far its working out nicely.
I just added a SureFire X200 Tach light to the XD, all I can say is awesome!!

Out of all the HandGuns I own..
Springfield XD.40
Beretta 92FS(two of them)
Beretta 96
Desert Eagle 44 Mag
HK USP.45
S&W model686 357 Mag

My favorite for home defense is the Desert Eagle .44....
For carry, the XD is my new choice. But the Beretta 92FS is my all around fav!!

I like my PM9. It will slide into your pocket and an ankle holster would also be easy. It is 6+1 with the most concealable magazine. I practice with it at least once a week. Mostly paper targets or bottles at 75 feet. Not a practical distance for the situations it's designed for but if you can hit at 75 than anything closer seems easy. For a little gun it shoots really well. I like that every trigger pull is exactly the same and very smooth. It is DAO with about an 8lb trigger.

Glock 26 9mm . Great carry pistol cheap to practice with.
I bet most of you guys who like the 45's don't practice like I do with my 9mm simply because of the cost involved.
And I think practice and center mass hits are more important than carrying a 45 just cause its a 45.
