      Small (light compact 45's)

      I'm looking to buy a small 45 as an EDC, single stack (narrow) light weight 18oz?
      I have searched Genitron, etc, but I'm sure that there are others available
      Suggestions?
      tnx, daniel

      Glock 36 (single stack). Very reliable. Priced well. It's durable and it's a Glock. Can't go wrong. I would guess it is about $600.00.

      The Glock 36 comes close but is over your weight requirement.

      I missed that. The Glock is 20 ounces. On the belt it would not seem to make a difference to me. In the pocket, perhaps.

      But do you think a Kahr will be as durable and reliable as a Glock?

      Sure. Even the Glock 36 has issues every now and then.

      I think I'll stick with my Springfield ultra compact. May be some bigger but I'll take bigger and heavier for the extra 5 round and faster reload time. The darn thing even cost about the same.
