I completed my CHL class today and was looking for some suggestions on a compact 45 - my Gold Cup is to heavy to carry but I like a 45 over 9MM

Kimber makes small 1911 style .45's also you could look into the XD's they make a nice compact I personally would buy a XD over a Glock but thats just me. I have a friend that carries the Karr Arms .45 and loves it.

Check out the Glock 36. Compact, light, accurate and goes Bang every time I pull the trigger. It's not a 1911, but for CC it is great. Kahr makes a .45 that is slim and easy to carry too. If you can find a 1911 with a Commander slide on an Officer's frame, they make great carry pistols too. The Para LTC is a close clone of this size. If you have the cash, the new Bill Wilson carry pistol will do very well.

If you want non 1911 style, look at the HK USP compact, or an XD. I worry about reliabilty of 1911's smaller than comander

My very biased vote is for any Kimber Ultra.

very nice setup - thanks for the pics


the only problem with all the great compact 45's suggested is that no one has any to sell
