Default looking for a good carry .45

Anyone have any good opinions on what would make a good carry .45? I like the 1911 style guns but it seems like the full frame guns might be pretty big for carry. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

Compact 1911. 3.5 or 3 inch.

I sometimes carry a full sized 1911. But another gun I have thant I like a lot is my Bersa Concealed Pro. It is a double stack compact 45. The mag holds 7. It has a decocker and is fully ambidextrous.

Colt makes the following:

FS Government 5"

Commander 4.25"

Officers 3.5"

Defender/NA 3"



Best carry piece IMHO is the Light Weight Commander.

And I carry one every day.
