Is this going to be a year round concealed carry .45?
I have a Sig 220, a custom Commander, a custom 1911, a Glock 21 and Para p14. Obviously, the last two can be scratched off the list as they are too big for concealed carry unless you are on the north pole and can wear a thick parka all summer long. A single stack 1911 can be concealed fairly well even in summer with the right holster. The Sig P220 is close to commander sized but to me it feels bulky in all the wrong places when I carry it concealed. That usually leaves me with my Commander .45 mated with a Milt Sparks Summer Special IWB holster.

I looked at a Kimber Super Carry Pro yesterday and liked the feel of it. With the aluminum frame it is only 28oz which is very noticeable when compared to a steel framed Commander. Kimber puts a "shoot a little, carry a lot" disclaimer on it due to the aluminum frame.

Pic of my steel-framed Commander and Milt Sparks Summer Special holster (finish is hard chrome except for the hammer, sear, hammer pin, sear pin and series 80 components which are gold titanium nitride. It started as a Colt '91A1 Commander...now the only parts left from the original '91A1 are the slide and frame).

I've carried para p10 warthog ccw in NYS where everything must be concealed. I have no problem with an inside the waistband holster even with shorts. I also have the Taurus P145, a little lighter but slightly wider. Both shoot excellent at 50' with >1000 rounds through each. for Taurus at least I can speak for their FREE lifetime repairs if anything breaks or wears from normal use.

There are dozens of really awesome choices, it's just going to have to come down to the feeling of each particular gun for me. Thanks for the suggestions so far guys

Glock 36 is a fabulous ccw. 6+1 and single stack. Shoots great and is super reliable!

I have both a Glock 30 and a Glock 36, and have had since their introduction. However I have just bought a Springfield Armory XD-s in .45 for my carry gun. While weight can be a problem with 1911s the real problem with concealing a gun is thickness and the SA XD-s solves that.

My wife just got a Boberg 9mm. She thought it was worth the wait and the price after running 200 rounds through it for a shake down.

If I ever feel the need to carry a .45, it will be my SIG P220.

The compact 1911s have a history of malfunctions under self defense training. Listen to Rob Pincus on this. I am currently carrying a Glock 36 single stack. I improved the trigger simply buy dropping in a Ghost trigger connector. Mine required a lottle work as I got the Rocket 3.5#. It lightens the trigger and eliminates overtravel. Check it out. Cheap and easy.
