    Another "which one" thread

    I bought a S&W Sigma 40 earlier this year as my first gun and after a spring change I like it. Now, with all the talk going around about future gun sales and such, I think I want to buy a second gun. I think I'v decided I want something a bit bigger than the .40 so I'm thinking about a .45. Now, the million dollar question, which one? M&P? XD? Glock?

    I wouldn't get any of those in .45. If you are going to get a .45, get a classic 1911.

    Failing that -- there isn't anything that distinguishes the three from each other as far as a practical standpoint. Just get the one that fits your hand the best....

    Looks like I've decide to get a Kimber. I'm looking at the Crimson Custom Carry II, anyone have thoughts for or against? Are the laser grips just a gimmick and another model in the same price range shoot better?

    Some useful references on the benefits of a laser sight, especially as a training aid. Also a free DVD on the use of the laser. You can also watch the video online.

    First, I have two Kimbers, a Custom TLE II and an Ultra CDP II for carry, and absolutely love them. My TLE II will out shoot me for many years to come. Recoil is much lower than my Sigma 40. You will enjoy shooting a Kimber.

    As for laser grips, it depends on the use of the gun. I had laser grips on a Beretta 96 and I never really used them at all since most of my shooting is done at an outdoor range. However, I recently bought a tactical laser/light rail attachment for my Sigma which I use as my HD gun. I think this setup is more optimal for a nightstand gun as a laser doesn't illuminate your target but the laser/light will do both at the same time.

    Looking around a ammo I keep seeing .45 ACP+P, and claims should be used in a firearm rated for +P. What's the deal with +P ammo?

    I'm on the way to Birmingham to a gun show, hopfully I can find a Crimson Custom so I don't have to buy one online.

    Out of those you mentioned I'd lean to the M&P..But if I was to want ot get a 45 and didn't have one it would be a 1911. For me the only thing better than a 1911 is having two 1911's
