Mini 1911s? Something else? Your input
Ok, I love the safety on the back of 1911's I've fired, but I primarily want something for concealed carry, so a full size is out of the question. I have done so much digging for reviews, but I'll tell you this:
-I'm not sold on any one particular caliber
-I recently picked up a Kahr CW9 at the store. Only thing I didn't like was that only half the gun was blued (I don't want shiny)
-I want something between full size and compact, that I can carry concealed, but take to the range and practice, practice, ...
-I need to keep it around or below, $400, even if it means going to a pawn shop
-I'll never forget the time I rented a Ruger S&P 40 at the range, the recoil was ridiculous, couldn't hit spit. So I'll sacrifice a larger caliber for managable recoil (Nothing smaller than 9mm)
I'll be moving and thus driving across the country in a couple of months, I'd like to have the pistol, take the CCDW course here asap.
