    Nice. I've always wanted to get a compact 1911, unfortunately my hands are too big.

    Post a range report once she comes in. Will this be for CCW?

    The 1911 .45 is already plenty inaccurate enough for most people.

    The shorter barrel's primary market appeal is to make it a better belly gun.

    I'm sure this will be a real hit with the criminal class who need to hide their weapons on their person.

    How does this smaller weapon work better for home defence than its larger brother?

    Cry me a river. With a 45 you generally don't even have to hit your target, a close miss will knock them down. Now personally I would not get a short barrel 45, the kick has got to be really bad and short barrels are as you noted less accurate.

    As for the 1911, it is quite accurate when properly maintained and sighted. weak wristed liberals might find it hard to use but any one else should have little trouble with it.

    Every Kimber I own is remarkably accurate. You make a good point though. This compact has an aluminum frame (bad for recoil) but has a weight forward bull barrel for flip. The laser should help me get off a quick second if I need to. It's for CCW only.

    The Eclipse shown in my sig is my main battle weapon even though I generally stay away from shiny stainless components for night use. I have shot it against Wilson Customs and everything else and it always comes out on top. It gives me one hole groups at 25yds. all day long if I do my part. Never seen anything like it. It's a good 'un. It's nice to talk to someone who knows their stuff. Drive on.

    Very nice. They build 'em good don't they? Take care of it. It'll take care of you.

    Yeah, I was thinking about getting a Glock in 9mm or .45 for personal defense, since I've heard good things about their reliability...but my Navy bud has almost sold me on the 1911. I'm not sure yet, since it would be my first gun.

    I personally wish the open carry movement would pick up some steam and some social acceptance...I can only imagine how much crime would be affected if certain elements could actually SEE how many people walking up and down the street are armed. I was wondering if y'all had any thoughts on that?

    Don't get a Glock.
