    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.

    There are many good choices out there, and you just need to research quite a bit, and handle the firearms until you find one that best suits your hands and has what you require in a sidearm. One thing I will say is, you can never go wrong with anything that Springfield makes.

    Hehe,I get a kick out of these,although I am guilty of replying if I don't notice the OP date.

    For the record,I believe the HK is the best of the lot to choose from if you have the ability to shoot a variety of platforms.

    The ones I get a kick out of are the ones I reply to a year or two after my first reply...and I have changed my mind.

    best 45 compact

    I prefer the glock 30. Searched for over 6 months and tried almost evert make but the glock was best for me. Shoots great, is accurate and feels comfortable. mostly I feel confident that it will perform when I need it.

    I have a SIG P250C in .40 cal. I like it a lot.

    Been thinking about buying one of the SIG .45 acp conversion kits for it as well.

    This is funny, I was going to start a thread similar to this. This is one old thread! Anyway good info. I just sold a Glock 36 that wouldn't run worth a darn. It shot defensive ammo ok, but that gets expensive at the range. Tomorrow AM I am going to a lgs that has a MP 45c and a Glock 30fs instock and on hold for me. Thoughts?

    Oh yeah, I have enough 1911's. My quest is for a good reliable striker fire .45 for CCW. My quest has sucked so far with the Glock 36...... Moving on!
