    This thread is from August of '09 and the OP hasn't been online since October...I think it's safe to say he's chosen his gun by now.

    txgolfer: only one of these is a 45 - see original question

    I noticed the comment above and agree with it. The gun has only been with me for a few days. I took it to the range and was really impressed. The control and accuracy is great.

    Sig Sauer makes a very nice 1911 and it is priced very competitively for what you get. You don't see too many around. It fits nicely with their .380 pocket pistol.

    $1,300.00, and it reads like a custom made pistol. Sig quality is always very, very good.l

    I've carried my Defender for at least 4 years with no malfunctions, good accuracy, and very comfortable. It now has Lasergrips on it which only enhance it's accuracy and speed of presentation to firing.

    I'd be torn to choose between my HK compact 45 and my M&P compact 45. Both are totally reliable and very accurate. Hard to leave out my SIG P220 as a shooter or my Kahr PM45 for concealment.

    I shot my new HK for the first time this week, and I'll have to say it's the best of my eight 45's. The P220 and M&P run a close second. I haven't shot the SIG 1911 C3, I bought last week, but I'm expecting good things from it too.

    i have a taurus 45 acp and i trust it as much as i do my glock. Its not as accurate as the glock but i know without a doubt when i pull the trigger on the taurus it will go off, and in my opinion, as far as conceal guns, thats all a man can ask for!!!

    I have a taurus pt145 and a taurus 24/7 oss. I also have a stoeger cougar .45. I love my 3 handguns. To my knowledge stoeger and beretta cougar's are the same tooling, but stoeger is cheaper. any opinions on any differences in regards to stoeger and beretta?

    From your list: I have, and carry daily the Taurus pt145. It has been a flawless weapon and I stake my life on it. At under $350 it is the bargain here. I have only had one Taurus firearm that ever needed service and found their customer service excellent.I have the Xd, Colt 1911 officers model, along with various other handguns. But the PT145 is the best overall with 10+1 capacity 22oz, true double action trigger. 100% reliable.

    Best if I know I'll be in a gunfight - HK45C
    Easiest to carry - Kahr PM45
    The one most often on my belt even though it's my cheapest 45 of twelve - Kahr CW45.

    For me, it's the Glock 36. It's accurate, easy to hold and to control. It eats most anything I feed it. Your mileage may vary.

    Why do you carry the CW45 more often than the PM45?

    Of the guns on your list, I have hands-on experience with the Kahr P-45 and the XD45 Compact.

    The XD45 Compact is completely reliable and quite accurate. What it is not, is compact. The only difference between it and the the standard size XD is a shortened grip, which cuts magazine capacity to 10 rounds. It still has the 4" barrel. It is my personal favorite for concealed carry, but it is in no way comfortable (nothing is).

    The P-45 I owned was very accurate, and almost comfortable to carry with a good hybrid (leather and kydex) IWB holster. It is not a pocket pistol, though, unless you wear loose clothing with big pockets. I swapped it off because I could conceal a Commander sized 1911 almost as easily, and preferred that platform.

    I am eagerly awaiting the XD-s, a single stack that is gradually finding its way into the market, and should be similar to the Glock 36.

    Only one I have is the PT145. I really like it, but from the range of comments it seems Taurus can be hit or miss when it comes to getting a good one.

    I've been carrying this Kimber Ultra Carry II for a while now and it fits the bill perfectly for a CCW.
