    The Glock 36 is only 28.5mm thick. Kahr also makes a thin .45 too, and I don't know of any that are thinner. STI also makes some thin 1911-style 9mm's as well, but I don't know if their .45's are any thinner than any other 1911.

    Thumbs up Yeah, the 1911's are thin...

    ~ I was curious as to if there as anything in a 45 acp like the newer Walther PPS .40, I'm not a big fan of Walters but man that PPS is SUPER THIN. I have a Glock 21 & it's Pretty wide, so maybe the 36 is a little thinner?

    1911, glock 21, and several of the 3" barrel compacts are 1.3" thick
    S&W M&P and the glock 36 is 1.1" thick
    the cobra patriot and the upcoming kahr pm45 are 1" thick
    the cartridge makes it hard to make the frame thin
    the thinest 9mm i can find is the kahr pm9 at 0.9"

    G36 All the way. Oh, can you ship your house to Mountain Home, Texas and what would be the freight? It would look really good on the ranch.

    Yes, the Kahr. And street price is less than the MSRP, so do not let that scare you. I have a PM9. I have never shot the PM45... But damn, it has gotta have a lot of kick.
